The Gonyea Family!

by Alyssa Renee

This weekend, there was a long enough break in the dreary overcast weather to have a great shoot with Katherine, Joe and their two adorable dogs. This couple is naturally gorgeous, and so was their home. I would love to have a home with a similar aesthetic to theirs someday. It was so clean and minimalistic with beautiful white walls and dark wood floors. It allowed for the natural light to bounce around off the ceiling and walls for a heavenly white glow. My absolute favorite!

This is what true puppy love looks like!

Chino, the distinguished, silver-speckled Chihuahua, is Joe’s dog. Looking pretty good for a 12 year old, don’t you think? 🙂 He really loves his dad.

This shoot was mainly about the pups, but I just couldn’t help myself with this couple!  Kat and Joe met at South Texas College of Law and now work at the same law firm together. (South Texas is the same school where my dad went, and a few friends of mine currently attend!) They’re smart, gorgeous and have a great home. An all-around amazing couple!

Chino was feeling a little camera-shy since he had to endure a bath that day, but I thought he still managed to look quite dapper on his armchair!

Next to him on the couch is Chino’s sister, Cooper. She was shy at first, but really warmed up to us as the shoot went on. I just love that face! She has eyes only for her momma!

That face! Such a sweetheart. She reminds me of my childhood dog, Hannah (a German Shepherd).

The dogs were happy to have a short walk during the shoot. It really was a beautiful day.

Such a beautiful family!

Kat and Joe – Thank you for opening up your home to Alyssa and I. We had a great time meeting you and getting to know you and your pups!

Naturally yours,
