From the moment we first spoke on the phone, Candice was really interested in getting to know what my dog was like... what made her so special to me, what are her quirks, what did I hope to get from our shoot. I felt so relaxed about the appointment later that month despite Nellie not always loving other people. And as soon as we got there, Nellie loved Candice. She ended up getting the most incredible pictures of my shy, sweet girl.- Callie
