that little melon-head rosie

dog-gamn, i love this little dog …


i mean, just look at this face!  don’t you just want to take that round little melon and squish it and kiss it?  of course, i couldn’t after the initial meet because i had my hands full of camera, but let me tell you, it was SO hard to not just set the camera down … every fifteen seconds.


and i’m so grateful for the little slice of beach Rosie’s parents found for us to romp on …


sand beaches are one of my favorite locations … the sand provides great bounced light and a wonderful backdrop.  and, of course, waves are always a bonus … well, unless you ask Rosie who was trying hard to retrieve her stick …


still, this mighty five-month-old didn’t give up easy …




some of my favorite shots of this little girl are her leaping shots.  it was really hard to restrict myself to just two on the blog … well, not including the one i previously shared with you … she’s such a little dynamite.


and when she caught air, she sure caught air …


mom and dad, Nicole and Evan, requested some images of themselves with their girl, including a feet shot.  how cute is Rosie with her paw always on Evan’s foot?


oh, okay, one more jump shot …


and of course, a soccer ball shot … i have yet to meet a bull dog who isn’t obsessed about their soccer ball.  this little melon-head sure could hustle.


then it was off to the trails …



and some more trails …


and of course, fall leaves, even though it was a little early for a lot of leaf cover and dad and mom had to collect a few handfuls for this shot.


you’d have thought this pint-sized dollface would be pooped after our hours of running, but she was still ready to entertain at home.


… so i let rosie chill a bit while i visited with the family cats.




… long enough for Rosie to relax.




working with a puppy isn’t easy … but for this face, i’ll do anything.


and by the end, i think — finally — Rosie was truly and thoroughly pooped.


thanks, Rosie for  a fabulous shoot.  and thank you Nicole and Evan for sharing your little doll-face with me.

  • MargaretIllona, these pictures are amazing!!! And Rosie is amazing! Love that little melon-head – but you no doubt knew I would. 🙂 I knew she’s young, but thought more than 5 months. Our Belvy used to stand on his hind legs and jump a lot like Rosie. Till his first misjudged landing on the deck, when he didn’t get the landing gear down in time, and hurt his back end. Even that didn’t stop him entirely, just slowed him down. But a few more sore times, and some more years, and he doesn’t do it any more. I hope Rosie’s leaping days are many, many, many!!! What a sweet and energetic girl! And your pictures are amazing!!! When will you be in Colorado for a photo session w/B&H? 🙂

  • Holly Garner-JacksonI forgot to mention the cats….. They are pretty cool. I don’t think i’d mess with the tabby! 😉
    Any critter you can’t make look good? ;-P ?????????ReplyCancel

  • Holly Garner-JacksonOMD! Illona you never cease to amaze me with your photos. You have captured the joy of life in this sweet girl. I never thought I’d be interested in owning a bulldog but your photos show me what an awesome dog they can be.
    The owners should be very pleased with your work! These rock.ReplyCancel
