Max the Black Lab’s North Shore Session – Pittsburgh Pet Photography

I just love labs and their loyal, playful, lovable, goofy pawsonalities, so I could hardly wait to share these images of Max, whose full name is Massimo (Italian for Maximus), a three-year-old black Lab who lived up to my every expectation!.

“[Max has] been living the great puppy life for his first two years,” says his mom Kelli. “This past year, we started therapy training. He’s pretty close to passing.”

Kelli describes her 90-pound wiggle bottom as eager to please and playful. “He’s 100% Lab, that’s for sure! Playing, swimming, walking, snuggling, and eating–you name it!”

Kelli, who loves the downtown area, thought the North Shore would be the perfect place to capture her boy in all his Labrador glory. Boy, was she right! Just look at this handsome man.

Max gave us one last laugh before we the end of his session by attempting to go nose-to-nose with Mr. Art Rooney himself as we stopped for some shots by the Art Rooney Statue outside of Heinz Field. We couldn’t have planned this if we tried!

“He just makes everyone that meets him happy because he loves everyone,” adds Kelli. “His excitement is contagious.”
