There is not much I like more that a furry little golden puppy! Well in this case, I got to watch and photograph little Ripley growing up into BIG Ripley! I love every ‘watch them grow’ series and I hope you do too!
Jess and Jetson are two beautiful greyhounds, both rescued from the racing world and now living the life! Sighthounds can be quite a challenge to photograph as owners usually prefer their ears up, but normal things like noises don’t do much for getting their attention. But movement does! Just have your trusty assistant jump up and down or jog by and up go the ears! Such gorgeous boys! We started in the studio and then headed off to capture the beautiful outdoors!
Buoy and Zoey are two happy and sweet Portuguese Water Dogs. I photographed them both in my studio and at the owner’s beautiful home. Many dog’s are most comfortable being photographed at home. Little did I expect such a gorgeous yard to use as a backdrop to these wonderful dogs. Just magical!
Sarge and Drake are two rescued German Shepherds and best of buddies! Their proud mom won a session I donated to Golden State German Shepherd Rescue’s annual gala and auction. Mom knew just the images she wanted and the boys were so cooperative! What neither of us expected though, was that they would do this!
And here are the boys striking these poses so perfectly!
What fun and such a joy to know that these abandoned dogs found such a perfect home!
I’m back with my Project 52; this time with the subject of water! Water to me immediately brings to mind our favorite dog park – Pt. Isabel Regional Shoreline. There are beautiful views from this landscaped 23-acre park in Richmond, CA. This is one of the largest public off-leash dog parks in the nation with over 500,000 dog visits per year! So off we went! First we pooped the dogs out on a long walk and posed them on a picnic table (can’t think of a better use for a picnic table!) so you could get a feel for this scope of this great place! Those are more doggie people behind Jack and Julie.
There are spots for pups to swim (we try to avoid them, but Jack and Julie had other ideas!), a cafe and a dog wash shop! But the best thing to me is the view at sunset of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin County. Hadn’t planned on the wet doggies, but you can’t have everything!
Now let’s see the wonderful water places other pet photographers take us! This is a blog circle, so click on the links at the bottom of each page and follow the blog circle around the world until you end up back here! First up is Amyranth Pet Photography, San Francisco Bay Area, California. Don’t get wet!
How fun to have a session with a little pup named Joy! Joy is a tiny thing with a giant, fun loving personality and an owner who is beautiful inside and out! We started in the studio and then headed out to the Lafayette Community Park for outdoor portraits. A joyful day indeed!
