These two guys came to visit us last week. Two of the sweetest puppies. ( I call all dogs puppies, no matter how old they are) Boo is 14 years old, but still gets around pretty good for an old dog! He is missing part of an ear thanks to a fight with a possum.
Mo is the young guy. He’s only 7 months. He looks like he’s part Pit Bull, but what a baby. He made sure he was right next to mommy the whole time.
Once we got the two of them calmed down, they posed nicely for us!
This one is probably my favorite one from the session!
This guy came in to get some portraits done for Valentine’s Day. Such a well behaved dog! We didn’t need a leash, which is always a plus. He pretty much did anything we asked him to do. He had such beautiful markings on him.
This is Hamlett. He belongs to our assistant Shelley. She brought him over so that she and Jess could mess with the lights and settings and such. After they wore him out playing with him trying to get their shots, I joined the party. This was our first kitty shoot, so I was excited to get in on the fun. He was such a good little guy. He pretty much laid there and let us do whatever we wanted. There’s no way that my cat would do that.
We started out with some shots in the basket, then we let him out to play a little bit.
This little girl is Pepper. She is a 4 month old lab/beagle mix. We asked her owner to bring her in. Like any puppy, she was a bundle of energy, and so lovable. Like any puppy, she did not want to sit. We did get some really cute shots of her, and shee even let us put a pettiskirt on her. Wait til Joy’s son sees these!
I don’t think we’ve ever come across a dog that we couldn’t get some great shots of. We may have to pull more tricks out of the bag for some, but in general, they all do what we need them to do.
Here are some tips for when you get your pet photographed. Feed and water them before they get here. Walk or run them before you leave. This will burn off some of their energy. Once you get here, take your pet for a walk around the yard. Let him or her sniff around and do their thing.
Once we get your pet inside, we will let him/ her get used to us. We don’t jump right into shooting. We want your pet to feel comfortable and safe.
Here are some of our favorite images from the shoot.
Since I posted about being at the Bark for Life, I guess I should blog about the walk. This walk benefits the American Cancer Society and takes place at Nay Aug Park, in May.
This was their second walk, and the dogs doubled this year to over 200! Not only is there a walk, but they have dogs performing obstacle courses, dancing, and doing tricks. There are quite a few vendors there such as kennels, groomers, trainers, as well as us, photographers.
Although it rained while we were there, it did not lessen the crowd. They had a great turnout and raised a lot of money for a great cause!
Thanks to everyone who participated. We all have a story about cancer. Hopefully one day there won’t be any more.
While at the Bark for Life last month, we found a great little couch/ pet bed that we had to have. We started talking to the owner and one thing led to another. We decided that we would get some large prints of pets, on the bed that she sells, and hang them in her boutique.
In turn, we sent out a request to all of our facebook fans. Free pet sessions so we can get some prints to hang.
This turned out to be a lot of fun. Especially for me since I got to watch all these dogs drag Ed all over the place. haha.
These images are products of these shoots. We’d like to thank Amy, Sandy, Judy, Gina, and Liz for bringing your furry friends over to help us out.
This is Rich. We went to his house to do his family’s photos as well as his senior photos. They have Border Collies, and puppies! The dogs and puppies ended up being so much easier than I thought they would be to shoot. Whew! Here are some of our favorites from the shoot.
The city of Scranton has a monthly art show, held on the first Friday of each month, appropriately named First Friday. Each month, local businesses and a few churches, display art made by local artists. We have had the honor of being asked by St Luke’s Church to be part of their display a few times.
October’s theme was pet art. Pets were welcome to come, and Father Pete had a pet blessing in the church. There were dancing dogs, along with pets looking for homes that were there with the Griffin Pond Aimal Shelter. Springbrook Kennels, K-9 Training and a few other facilities were there to educate owners on pet care, grooming and training.
It as a fun night and we got to meet some great people. If you are looking for something to do on a Friday night, google First Friday in Scranton and get a list of establishments displaying art.
