This post is part three of a six part series featuring Carlye Rose, an adorable Coton de Tulear.   Each year I have the pleasure of photographing Carlye for her birthday.  What a great way to document the changes and growth that each year brings!  The images in this post were created to make a coffee table book.  The captions will guide you along.

We started outside.  Carlye Rose just loves to pose!

Let’s get started, Carlye!

Wonder what she’s thinking?

The perfect poser.

Hey! Watcha doin’ up there?

Carlye Rose lives the good life.  I’m pretty sure she considers herself royalty and her parents are her loyal subjects.  This is one dog who definitely is doted on — as she should be!  Dogs bring so much joy into our lives.  Where would we be without them?

Nose just slightly tilted up. She is a princess after all! Or, maybe there is the smell of treats in the air.

Mom, can we do something else, please?

At this point, Carlye had had enough of sitting on her chair, and we wanted to do something a little more unique.  Carlye’s mom had seen the project I had been working on with dogs’ at their owners’ feet (Fidos and Footwear), so it was time to break out the shoes!  Dad joined in too!  What fun!

Someone is getting tired already. Time for a break!

Carlye’s birthday is in July and it’s always been rather warm for her sessions.  This year wasn’t any different from the first two years.  She let us know it was time to head inside.  Her living room is gorgeously decorated with beautiful artwork and lots of purple accents.  It’s really a fun place to play and pose!
