A mind of his own! That’s what I remember most when I think about the photo session with Jonesy. What a gorgeous 9-year old Siberian Husky – but what a stubborn subject. He loved exploring the wooded park and really wasn’t all that thrilled with wearing reindeer ears – but I must say he wore them well. We added a tartan plaid red scarf which complimented his coat. His fur is so thick and so beautiful. His eyes are special too…one is a mottled blue/brown and the other is pure brown. And look at that expressive nose! We were lucky to still find some fall color and even more lucky to have had a bit of sun on what could have been a typical rainy, gray Oregon day. Thank you Jonesy for putting up with my “black box” and for being so patient with me.
Meet the menagerie headed by JoJo, the tiniest Yorkie I’ve seen in a long time. I photographed her for her Mom, sister and Grandmother’s holiday card. She wore the cutest elf costume although it was clear she was embarrassed to be seen in it! The cats were nonplussed…of course they were not asked to dress up – as if they would! I spent about an hour taking the pictures of the four gorgeous cats all of which are rescues with their own personalities. JoJo was very accommodating and spent her time comfortably on the couch. The cats, well that’s another story. I crawled around on the floor to get their photos. I think they enjoyed watching me and making it difficult for me to capture just the right moment. In the end tho’ I think I succeeded in getting each of them in a relaxed pose.
Bailee’s Mom and Dad wanted holiday pictures for their Christmas cards. We were lucky to find the only 45 minute time-frame when it wasn’t raining! I took these images in a local park and was lucky enough to still find some color. Bailee is a rescue and she’s about two years old. She is small but mighty. Love those ears! Bailee ‘s Mom and Dad are newlyweds. They were great to work with and all three are quite photogenic. They braved the wind and chill but you’d never know it by their beautiful smiles or Bailee’s attentiveness. There is no question that Bailee feels she is the star of the show!
