Diogi - Chicago's Cutest 4-Legged Cub Fan! Southport Chicago Pup Session - Wrigley Dog

Wow, I’ve been a little behind on the blog this summer - oops! I moved at the beginning of July and it took up weeks of my time, pre-and-post-move, but I’m back with a cute session to show you. I met Diogi at Hotel Zachary’s Yappy Hour event earlier this spring and her pawrents booked a session to document her sweetness. She is a lovable almost-3 little teacup goldendoodle who very much took to the camera. We photographed Diogi in her home where she loves to lounge atop pillows and play with her tennis ball on the roof. We then strolled around Southport Corridor in Chicago, stopped outside of Candyality for a couple quick photos, stopped by an amazing mural on Southport and ended at Bentley’s Pet Store for a special treat. She sure is a fun little pooch and I loved following her around for her photo session!

Yesterday you saw the best of the couples, today you’ll see the portraits. The pups, the babes and I even threw a few of me in at the end to show I practice what I preach about getting in photos! (Thanks to my friend Bridget for the fall photo and Angelic Angles for the blue dress photo!) Drumroll for some of my favorite moments from 2018 portraits.
