I recently had the opportunity to photograph a dear friend of mine, Manou, and her adorable dog, Max.  Manou and I have been planning this photo shoot for a while, but our schedules didn't align until a gorgeous spring day in late April.  

Manou is originally from Switzerland, although she has lived in the United States for many years.  She adopted Max from a kill shelter, and he is a sweet, 2-year-old, mixed-breed fur baby.  Manou and Max live in San Rafael, California.
