I hear this all the time.
“My dog would never sit still for a photo shoot.”
Here’s what I want to know:
Who in their right mind ever thought a dog should still for any longer than it takes to ask for a treat?
A photo shoot of adventure
Dogs weren’t meant to sit still.
Dogs were meant to sniff, explore, run, jump, play and pee on everything.
I mean, yeah, a good sit makes for a lovely portrait, especially against some of the epic backgrounds we have around here.
Like Panda’s Power Pose on a rock overlooking Pine Lake at the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge near Cheney, Washington.
Or let’s see the difference in a shoot with Enzo, a Great Pyrenees mix from Missoula, Montana. Enzo went for a little sunset hike at Dishman Hills Conservancy Area.
He has a great sit:
But look at this good boy’s Power Pose:
See the difference? Now guess which one I prefer.
The answer is easy. Power Pose all the way!
Dogs in action
During our consultation, we’ll talk about all the fun you like to have with your dog.
Do you play fetch?
Do you go swimming?
Do you …
Dogs live in the moment. They have a joie de vivre beyond a mere mortal human’s comprehension.
Creating images of them at play fills your heart (and album) with fabulous memories of your dog doing dog things.
Just the way he was meant to.
And this stunning husky, Alpine:
And then there’s playing in the water for an epic photo shoot.
And the ever-so-simple, yet perfect shot of you and your dog walking together.
A damn second.
Who’s that bitch?
Yup, that’s me and my best girl, Bella. This is one epic walking together image created by a photographer on the West Side. Bella and I took a quick photography retreat on the coast at Long Beach, Washington.
It was a ton of fun and we got a lot of images that I will treasure for years.
I love making that magic for you.
