Exploring Los Angeles with Cooper

Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I thought it would be the perfect chance to share images from our first family photo shoot with Cooper. When Donna Lam Photography asked Nick and I to participate in a shoot with our pup last December, we jumped at the chance. After six years together, we'd never had professional photos taken of us as a couple – not to mention, we couldn't wait for Donna to capture images of Cooper. Nick got us our little Mini Australian Shepherd for my birthday in June & we've loved watching him grow ever since. The shoot date actually landed on his eight-month birthday, just six months after we picked him up and brought him home to our new condo.

Donna was incredible to work with! She chose two beautiful locations for the shoot – a park with a beautiful view of the Downtown LA skyline and a nearby rooftop. Take a look at the images below. We love how they turned out! Donna made us feel extremely comfortable and her light, airy, romantic aesthetic was perfect for us. We can't wait to frame these in our home!

Thanks for reading! Let us know if you preferred the park shoot or the rooftop shoot in the comments below! My favorite was the rooftop shoot in more casual clothing because we felt more like "us." Be sure to check out Donna Lam Photography's website if you're looking for a professional photographer, and find more of her work on Instagram & Facebook. Thanks again, Donna!!
