Old Town Alexandria Photo Session with Gabe, Gabe, and Shooter
Yep, you read that title correctly - these two actually have the same name! Though I'm sure it causes some confusion for them at times, they do get to refer to themselves as "The Gabes" which is pretty fun.
Gabe and I worked together for a long time in public health before I left to do photography full-time! During our time sharing an office together I had heard so much about his two loves, Gabe and Shooter, and I was very excited to finally meet them. The other Gabe works as a dance fitness instructor (check him out here!) and Shooter is the world's cutest bull terrier. Though she's an older dog, she's still got tons of energy and happily walked all over Old Town Alexandria with us for these photos. I had so much fun spending the evening with this adorable little family!
Shooter did not understand that we weren't actually going to walk through this door!
I love it when dogs smile so big their eyes close.
While Gabe and Gabe changed outfits, I hung out at the Alexandria waterfront with Shooter. Almost every single person that walked by stopped to say hi to her! And more than one person called her Spuds MacKenzie haha. I guess even all these years later, he's still the most well-known bull terrier!
I just love how these dog dads look at their baby girl. ❤️️
And we wrapped the night up with a beautiful sunset on the Potomac River!
