Belinda Sol is a photographer who specializes in humans celebrating their bundles of joy. So when Mona called her to schedule a photo shoot, it didn’t even occur to her that this would be anything different.
But it was. When Belinda returned Mona’s call, she learned that Mona wanted a photo shoot for her dog, a dachshund named Mia.
It wouldn’t be the first time someone photographed a dog. In fact it seems to be a new trend for dogs posing for their own celebrations for becoming a parent.
“I had never done [a dog shoot] before, and I was excited to do so,” Belinda said, and she accepted the challenge immediately, even purchasing a dress and some props for Mia’s shoot.
The photo shoot went very well, and when Belinda posted the photos on social media she was astonished at how viral the pictures were. Before long, over 100,000 people were admiring her adorable shots.
Belinda says she treated it as any human maternity session. “I went and made her a maternity dress, purchased some props specially for her, and made our appointment,” she said.
