Welby is a 13 year old miniature schnauzer who was recently diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Although I was told he started slowing down, you would have never known it for our shoot. Welby chased that frisbee with a bouncy rabbit like run. I had a hard time concentrating as I watched this little guy bounce toward me in the camera's view finder. The photos we got from that day were WELL worth the crazy swarms of mosquitoes. Sadly, this past week I learn that Welby passed away. Welby is one of those dogs who's hard to forget. I'm glad we have some great pictures to remember him by. Thanks Debbie for bringing me out to meet him!
I recently found out that another member of the All Ears Pet Photography family has passed on. I had the opportunity to meet and photograph Butch (and his canine brothers and sisters) on a couple of occasions. He has the deep soulful eyes of a senior dog who has seen it all. We got some great images of Butch. You will be missed! Here are some of the photos from our shoot.
I was deeply saddened to hear that one of the All Ears Pet Photography family, Hugo (The General), had recently passed on. Hugo was a 16 year old standard poodle I had the pleasure of photographing last fall. We were lucky enough to get a beautiful fall evening for the shoot. Some of Hugo's photos are still personal favorites of mine. We got some photographs that I was told perfectly represent Hugo in the twilight of his life and I couldn't agree more. Although notorious for taking part in the destruction of an oriental rug and a shelf full of bibles & religious books in his early days (I still think he was framed), The General will be greatly missed and I am happy I got the opportunity to photograph this amazing dog. Below are some of the photos from last fall.
