Stella was the second black lab I had the opportunity to shoot in a week and I'm not complaining. I love labs! She is 7 years old (which I would still consider a puppy in lab years) and was as ball and stick obsessed as one might expect. Even though our photo shoot was technically the 3rd time that day she got to burn off energy (and it was only 10am) she outlasted us all. Summer is a great time to photograph but there is just something about fall with the warm brown colors that you gotta love! Thanks Tony for introducing me to Stella. I hope I was able to help her wear off a little more of that lab energy.
