alena and Michael have created the sweetest family. The four of them together are so lovely to be around and made for a really inspiring photo session. The winds were fierce the day we met up and I was amazed at just how tough Kalena and Michael were not to mention their tiny pups who shivered but proved to be excellent photo subjects especially when treats were involved. If we didn't already have two pups that we love immensely in our own home I would of been tempted to keep Rusty and Lyla but I know for a fact Kalena and Michael would never of gone for that.
Kalena and Michael rescued Rusty from a shelter a couple of years ago. The poor sweet little man had been returned for being "too mellow". Kalena describes Rusty as more of a cat than a dog but he fits in perfectly and is so loved in their home. Kalena had been scouring the shelters for another dog to add to their family and after 2 years they finally found the perfect pup for their home in Lyla. Lyla had been found abandoned and then returned to the shelter after a couple of home trys. Lyla has finally found her forever home and she is adored.
I love that Kalena and Michael have invited their friends and family to join them as they get married in the mountains but they have also invited their friends dogs to join as well. Kalena and Michael told us we could bring our pups but our naughty pups would never let us get any photographs taken if they attended. Rusty and Lyla will naturally be a part of their wedding. I can't wait. Kalena has already been creating a rather handsome outfit for Rusty.
They call it Rusty's Elvis lip. I call it adorable.
