Meet Moose the Corgi! | Raleigh Family Photographer

I recently took family photos for this beautiful family with their dog, Moose, the corgi! When Pauline got in touch with me, she share with me the emotional journey they had with their dog, Moose, this year. In a nutshell, Moose fell twice and had to get two back surgeries, and they almost lost her. After a lot of hard work at rehab, she is amazingly walking again! With everything that has happened this year, they wanted to take photos to celebrate Moose and to have pictures of the three of them together that they can cherish for years to come!

The weather was crisp and cool the day of their session, and there were a lot of other families at NCMA with their dogs—it was like a party! When we started our photo shoot, I was amazed at how Pauline, Alex, and Moose were so natural and comfortable in front of the camera. Usually it takes about 10 minutes for most people to warm up, but they were SO relaxed and it totally shows in their photos!

Moose was also such a gentle and calm dog, and had the most adorable smile! Pauline taught me that if you say, “chicken,” Moose will turn her head towards you!! It was SO cute and worked every time! Also, when we were taking photos of just Pauline and Alex, Moose kept getting in their shots. We would place her next to me, but she will end up walking back towards them—it was hilarious! See for yourself below! I think it just shows how much she loves them :) If you’d like to follow Moose’s journey, check out @m00sethecorgi on Instagram!
