Another shoot for late last summer. I got the opportunity to photograph two American Bulldog's named Elliot and Lola. This was another incredibly hot day. The great thing about these two is that they went full boar for about 20 minutes and then were spent. The rest of the session I could just hang back and shoot as we walked the paths, played in the mud and explored the park. Bully breeds are amazing!
Here is another shoot from the end of last summer with a boxer named Nero. If I had to choose only one purebred breed to photograph for the rest of my photographic career (thankfully I don't) it would be boxers. I LOVE this breed! The energy, the expressions and the personality make for amazing photographs. Nero didn't disappoint. We really lucked out for this shoot. Starting at Nero's house, a short drive from Lake Michigan, it was hot, hot, hot! We burning off some energy, got in some garden hose time and then headed down to the lake. The beach was covered in this amazing fog. The combination of a great dog and a surreal beach scene made for some great images.
I know, this blog has been sorely neglected. There are a ton of photos I want to share since last summer so lets get started. Heidi is first on the list. I photographed Heidi early August. She is a TINY Shih Tzu! I love how the blades of grass almost tower over her. Working with small dogs can sometimes be quite a workout. The shoot usually consists of me laying, running, crawling, rolling, scooting and eventually panting. But since Heidi was pretty low key she made my job very easy. Thanks Heidi! Be sure to book your spring photo shoot while there is still time. The bulbs are starting to emerge and soon we'll have some great spring flowers. Contact me to set up a shoot or with any questions.
A couple weeks back I had the pleasure of meeting the amazing duo of Aia Mae (Blue Heeler/Beagle Mix) and Willow (Australian Shepherd). I found out that Aida has an amazing talent. She can show off her butt on command. Very impressive when seen in person! Willow is deaf so after feeling a little foolish catching myself whistling to get her attention we figured things out and found that she's very photogenic. These two were a lot of fun to work with. If you ever want to say hi, Aida and Willow are regulars at Central Park Milwaukee Downtown where their mom is manager. Thanks Kate for a fun shoot. Enjoy the photos!
Here are some pictures of Willy the bulldog from last year. I remember having a great time watching Willy chase his partial deflated basketball around the yard. I thought these were the perfect photos to illustrate how ANXIOUS I am for summer since nothing says summer to me better than slobbery bulldogs and deep green grass. I came across these photos while going through some of last summer's shoots and putting together an all new All Ears Pet Photography product. Keep an eye out in the upcoming weeks for the announcement and samples. In the mean time enjoy Willy and remember that summer will be here soon! Remember to book your shoot early: contact me.
