Meet Bella, the prettiest, sweetest dog I’ve ever met. She’s a 5 year-old pure-bred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with a knack for fetching balls and looking adorable from any angle. Her Rockridge family loves her to pieces.
For those who follow my blog, let me be the first to tell you that I’ve expanded my photography service to include DOGS! My job just keeps getting more fun. For my first try I met my mom and her super energetic Maltese mix at the park. It didn’t go very well and I thought, “what the heck was I thinking?” Not being one to give up easily though, I pressed on and photographed 3 more dogs including Bella shown below. The process is like learning a new body language because dogs and children behave very differently, and dogs can be unpredictable (especially if they see a squirrel!).
So far I’ve learned that a high-pitched bark can really get a dog’s attention (yes, I bark now), and that I have to be even more on my toes to keep up with 4-legged friends. I’m really excited about this new venture because it will give me a whole new way to be creative, and I am expecting a slew of funny stories to tell from dog shoots. Be sure to check back for more photos, stay tuned for a forthcoming website, and please feel free to send this link to your dog-loving friends.
BTW, I would love to read your comments on these and future dog images, and tips on dog behavior that you have to share. Thank you!
