Sophie ~ BLOW project ~ Hamilton pet photographer

This Cockapoo girl is Sophie, or rather Sophrenia Euphemia … and these are her images from my much-awaited BLOW project.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with this very popular pet photography series, I introduced the BLOW dog photo series in this very first blog entry, and it has become a big hit on sites like Bored Panda and across the globe in the UK, France, Estonia, and even Japan among other countries.

Sophie was more than happy to catch the breeze with her ears … and not move.

Thank you, Sophie, for being so pretty and sharing your fabulous ears!

Stay tuned right here on the scruffy dog blog for more exciting entries in the BLOW photo series!  You can also see more of BLOW across different online publications like Dog Milk, Dogster and This Dog’s Life (sometimes called Dogs vs Fans) as well as real publications globally.

Solomon ~ BLOW project ~ Hamilton pet photographer

This is Solomon, Sophie’s Cockapoo brother … but unlike his sister, Solomon was not nearly as enamored by the fan in the BLOW project.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with this very popular pet photography series, I introduced the much-awaited BLOW project in this very first blog entry, and it has become a big hit on sites like Bored Panda and across the globe in the UK, France, Estonia, and even Japan among other countries.

Thank you for your disdain, Solomon; it made for one of my favorite photos.  Not everyone loves the wind in their hair.  🙂

Viva & Cee Cee ~ BLOW project ~ Kitchener-Waterloo pet photographer

This is Viva, and she is a superstar!  She is one of three Chinese Crested belonging to Becky of Grooming with Finesse, and this isn’t my first time working with Becky’s amazing girls.  They are not only gorgeous little girls, but they are so well behaved.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with the BLOW series, I introduced the much-awaited pet photography project in this very first blog entry, and it has become a big hit on sites like Bored Panda and across the globe in the UK, France, Estonia, and even Japan among other countries.

And this niblet is Cee Cee, Viva’s sister.

And here are Viva and Cee Cee, with mom Sofie in the middle.  Sofie was a superstar herself and had her own blog entry of BLOW photos.
