Photographer Captures the Playful Friendship Between Her Daughter and Bulldog

Lola the English Bulldog and her 4-year-old human Harper are best of friends. Their mom Rebecca Leimbach is a professional photographer said that the pair have been inseparable since Harper was born.

She began taking photographs of the pair playing together after her daughter came out of her playroom dressed up as a princess and Lola was decked out in a tutu and tiara!

Since then, she regularly takes photos of the two siblings getting up to fun and mischief. Rebecca kindly shared some of her phots with, which everyone can enjoy below.
