Thomas Ingle is a dog lover through and through.
Unsurprisingly, Thomas has made a career out of dog sitting and dog walking for families around Arlington, VA. He cares for each dog he watches, walks them as his own and has a special affinity for getting to know them all individually.
Perhaps the most notable trait about Thomas’ business, however, is that he does it all barefooted!
According to Thomas, if he walks with the dogs barefoot, he’s better able to feel exactly what they feel and keep them safe. Whether it’s excessively hot temperatures or just too cold, he’ll know and quickly move them to safety.
For a recent photoshoot, Thomas wanted to bring his best friend Benson and a few of his other favorite clients to the Manassas Battlefield for a family session. He had a vision of beautiful portraits with Benson that he could hang on the walls of his house, as well as action shots of him and his clients that could be used to showcase his successful business.
The entire day was filled with wagging tails, slobbery kisses and a lot (and I mean A LOT) of running around. Dogs were everywhere and everyone was having fun.
The energy out on the field exuded love and pure joy. We captured Thomas in his barefoot element playing with his clients, as well as comfortably cozying up to his best friend.
In the end, it was a fantastic day for everyone involved and Thomas walked away not only with a collection of photographs he will cherish for a lifetime, but also with pictures he can use to promote his business.
