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 have a thing for short, stubby legs after growing up with a Bassset Hound. Pair this with some nice big, pointy ears (like my dog Chloe) and you have a dog I could photograph all day long. Liam is a Corgi set to make an appearance in a national Corgi magazine and in need of a good portrait. According to his mom, Liam was nervous and unnatural when they tried getting photos of him in the studio. Some dogs just need to be outside having fun before they will show their true colors. Liam was one of these dogs because out in the snow (with the help of a ball) Liam was as natural as can be. Anyone who thinks all dogs with little legs are slow has never seen a Corgi run. This little guy can move! Thanks Marggie for contacting me to shoot Liam. He was great!
This post is long over due. I had the opportunity to shoot a group of four dogs on what turned out to be one of the nicest days this winter. The goal was to get some great shots of the dogs since Butch, the Golden Retriever, was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and Charm, the Chocolate Lab, had some recent health issues. The whole group did not disappoint. I had a blast working with all of them. Gizmo, the Bichon, was not a big fan of spending much time in the snow while Dewey, the mix, was a 3 1/2 year old bundle of energy. The late afternoon sun turned out to be amazing and I tried to capture every last bit of it. Thanks Cyndi for letting me photograph your group, I hope you enjoy the photos!
I tend to shoot a LOT of photos (furry and not) and although there are many that I like, a majority of them never make it off my computer. So I've decided to do something with those pictures and will randomly post some of the keepers to the blog. Call it a new year's resolution. This photo is Chloe on one of our snowy hikes.
Many of you know my affinity for senior dog photography. Windy was no exception. She is a 17 1/2 year old Yorkie-Poo. For the shoot we got a balmy 5 degree Wisconsin day. As you can imagine I was a little worried about what we'd get for photographs since cold weather and little dogs don't mix all that well. My fears were quickly put to rest as I was able to get some great shots right off the bat. Windy was a trooper! Most of my experience with senior dogs involves the dog staying in one place with me moving around. Windy had other plans. She was constantly on the move and made me work for every photograph. In the end I had a great time photographing Windy. Thanks Beth for the opportunity. I hope you enjoy the photos.
Well like it or not it’s that time of year in Wisconsin. The season’s first big snowfall brings a great opportunity for some photos of your pup. If your dog loves the snow, consider booking a photo shoot with them in their element. Snow shoots are a blast for you and your dog. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a shoot for your pet. The snow is here to stay, might as well enjoy it as much as your dog does with some custom photos.
Pet photo shoots also make great gifts for the animal lovers in your life. Gift certificates are available in any amount. Contact me with questions or to purchase one today.
