Sugar, Shockley’s two-year-old Dachshund, was near the end of her term when Shockley captured her breathtaking maternity shoot.

“Maternity and newborn photography is just a part of me, and Sugar is a part of me so I wanted to have a sweet memento to look back on.  She’s getting close to the end of her pregnancy and we took her for a day filled with pup cups and peanut butter treats, it ended with her maternity session. If people can feel special on their photoshoot days, so can Sugar,” said Shockley.

Sweet As Sugar!

After a few hours of shooting the end result was better than anyone could have ever expected. Sugar looked graceful with flowers in her hair as she balanced effortlessly on top of a stool in a field of flowers. The golden hues made her fur shine while she posed perfectly for each picture.

Fast forward, and when her puppies were born, Shockley followed up with an even more beautiful photoshoot with mom and her new babies.
