Stout and Alix | A Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm Sunrise Session

Stout and Alix met with me early in the morning for their sunrise session at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm. It’s always worth it to get up early for a sunrise session, in case you have ever have questioned this! The complete magic of the tulip farm is undeniable, and then you add in a perfect sunrise and these two beauties- it’s just the ultimate happy experience for me as photographer, as well as a pretty marvelous result for Stout and Alix too. 

We were surprised by the steam engine coming out into the field, and the sound echoed throughout the farmlands while Stout licked all the dirt off and back on to Alix’s face. Dogs paws always get dirty here and when you are picking up your dog, giving them high fives and handshakes, it’s likely to get on you too, but I always love that detail! The early sessions here this season were wildly muddy with a strong rainy spring, and although I don’t show it here because it was much drier at this point, the farm had a huuuuge mud puddle and a boat in the middle of it. It made me laugh! 

The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm is really accommodating to dogs and I very much appreciate that. Stout was kept on leash and it was edited out of all these photos. There’s some magic too- you can’t even tell!

Check out some of our favorite photos from their session now and immerse in the amazing colors and beautiful light, along with the marvelous energy of Alix and Stout with their incredible connection. This is bliss!
