Photographing Ruby the Schnauzer and Jack the Cocker Spaniel was a birthday present from their “Dad” to their “Mom”! It was the third birthday present from a boyfriend/husband that I did this year (girlfriends and wives, get hinting!). We met at a park not far from where they live and after a few minutes of getting to know me time, during which I nearly lost my fingers, I could see their food drive was enough to get us through any potential camera shyness issues.
Ruby was posing it up and head-tilting like a pro from the get-go!
Doesn’t Jack have the most fabulous eyelashes?
When I saw this on the back of my camera I cracked up laughing. How the hell can she see where she’s going with all that hair in her eyes?!!
I brought a special squeaky toy for Jackie but she wasn’t remotely interested. Luckily her people had brought her favourite, a tennis ball.
I won’t lie, it took a while to get this shot with all the distractions that were going on and it’s altogether possible that I whooped when I finally got it. Job satisfaction at it’s finest!
It would have been a crime not to include the cherry blossoms in a few of the photos. Aren’t they spectacular?
Early on in the session I pointed out that Jack’s lips were stuck and was told “it’s her, it happens all the time”. What a clown!
“What do you mean the session’s over and I can’t have any more treats?”
Rachel and Kieran chose these images for a canvas wall collection for their living room. The composite below is of two canvasses that will be hung independent of each other elsewhere in the house.
Do you have a birthday coming up? Let me know if you want me to post you some promotional material to casually leave lying around the house. Or directly on your other-half’s pillow. Whatever approach works best for you!
