I had a fantastic time photographing this trio of pups. Smokey, Molly and D’Lyla are the absolute pride and joy of their mom and dad. First up is Smokey. She is the youngest of the group and the most active. In fact, its the first time I’ve ever seen a pug who plays fetch. She is fast and could definitely give my labs a run for their money! Next up is the Bulldog, D’Lyla – she has a million expressions! I was cracking up while editing these images because she was making so many funny faces while her mom was holding her! Every time I look at them, it makes me smile. Last is Molly, the matriarch of the group. She takes her job sitting on the couch very seriously. 🙂 In addition to photographing each dog individually, we got a nice family image of everyone that now hangs in their home. Of course, we had to catch Smokey first!
When Miso and Mei Mei’s mom contacted me, I knew we were going to have a fun session. Every year she comes up with a creative theme or wardrobe for her Christmas pictures and this year was no exception! We went to Klyde Warren Park for their photo session – one of my favorite places to photograph dogs! I don’t usually photograph inside the dog park but on this particular morning it was completely empty and Miso (the dachshund) was itching to play fetch. She might have the body of a dachshund, but she definitely has the heart of a labrador! Every single time that Mei Mei got the ball, Miso would literally take it out of her mouth. It was hilarious!! Thanks for a fun session!
Mac is a playful guy who likes being out and about with his mom in New York City. As you can see he is also a very stylish dog, sporting the latest in doggie couture coats. We started our photo session in the Flatiron district with the iconic building in the background and the taxi cabs perfectly aligned. Then we took a stroll through Madison Square Park where Mac had fun showing off his jumping skills and greeting the other dogs we met. After a bit, we headed down to Union Square and played fetch before warming up inside the ABC, a local dog friendly store. I think Mac was sufficiently worn out after his big adventure. 🙂
I met Rosie and her mom in Brooklyn for a photo session that would take advantage of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. Rosie is a superstar therapy dog who knows over 200 commands and she has even appeared on the Michael and Kelly show to show off some of her tricks! Needless to say, I was pretty spoiled during the photo shoot because she could do anything and everything! Her skills came in especially handy towards the end of the session. We headed onto the bridge for a couple of sunset shots but we had to hurry because the parking meter was running low. It is a bit of a walk to actually get on the bridge and when we finally got close enough, I only had about 2 minutes to execute the shot before we had to turn around and head back to the car to avoid a parking ticket! Rosie was a champ with her sit/stay command even with all the people walking by which allowed us to get a beautiful portrait of her on the Brooklyn Bridge with the sunset in the background. An iconic image for an awesome dog!
