Nate's Day Out: Adrianna + Nate Holiday Portraits - Downtown Raleigh- Raleigh NC

Adrianna is my best friend of  13 years and Nate is her best companion. Adrianna saved Nate's life after a negligent human left him for dead on the side of the road. When I first met Nate, he was a tiny pup, I remember him being almost as small as a rat terrier when I first met him and him being deathly afraid of just about everyone. He also had serious skin issues. Adrianna spent years trying to figure out what he was allergic to and well, spoiler alert: EVERYTHING. Nate was on all kinds of meds and because of that, never really had a huge appetite and he slept a ton. Now here he is, 7 years later! Thanks to a miracle medicine, Nate is the handsome pup we always knew he could be, he is putting on weight, and is just so incredibly happy. These two, I believe, saved each other and their bond can never be replaced. Enjoy Nate's day out in Downtown Raleigh and be sure to leave them so much love in the comment section!

This session was definitely about Nate and his healthy new allergy free skin, but I have to take the time to talk about my beautiful best friend! She and I have been friends for an insane amount of time and she is just an amazing human with a contagious laugh. I just couldn't resist snapping a few candids of her too!
