Puppy Birthday Party | Yokosuka Pet Photography | KRUSH Photography

For some of us, our pets are our children too. And for my daughter whose only sibling is grown up and out of the house, ours is also her sister and best friend.

Meet Molly.

We found Molly just hours after I landed back in San Diego (home at the time) from a business trip. My husband asked what I wanted to do, and we ended up going to the Farmer’s Market in Little Italy, which is probably San Diego’s biggest Farmer’s Market of the week…every Saturday.

Anyway, I stopped at the ATM to pull out some money, crossed the street where she was being cuddled by another couple, and I instantly fell in love (with Molly…not the couple). I was pretty surprised that my husband said it was okay, and we took her home and didn’t even look at any other booths that day. And the rest is history.

Today, May 5th, also known as Cinco de Mayo or Children’s Day in Japan, is also Molly’s 4th birthday, and her sister was insistent on throwing her a little party. So today was the first time that I made a cake (from scratch, no less) for a member of my family. I feel a little guilty that it was for the dog, but really, it was quite simple.

We invited Molly’s current best friend, Blue (Molly loves Blue more than Blue loves Molly), my daughter made party hats, I made the cupcakes, and they had a little photoshoot. 2 dogs in a small space isn’t exactly the easiest to shoot, but it was fun nonetheless.

I hope you enjoy these fun little shots!

Pupcakes...homemade. Not the prettiest thing, but they were fresh, and apparently delicious. The color is an egg white wash
