as we head into winter — our first storm brewing outside right now — my hope is to start bringing you some fuller blog entries on just a few of the many fabulous scruffies i had the pleasure of working with this year. with less sessions during the snowy months, winter is a time for some badly -needed catching up on so many other aspects of the business, and in between all of that, it’s my opportunity to share with you a few more photos from the past year.
Bo & Dallas came from Toronto to scruffy dog territory for their session this fall.
loving some of the locations we have here at our disposal, and looking for a big canvas to go along with their album and prints, parents Pam and Nelson had the tunnel of trees in mind ……as well as our favorite train tunnel where Bo & Dallas posed like little thugs … er … pugs.Dallas is a pug-beagle cross who Pam and Nelson have had for ten months. he was a rescue from a puppymill and adopted as a puppy through Speaking of Dogs canine rescue. and Bo is a pug-boston terrier cross, adopted from someone who didn’t have the capacity to take care of his needs.one of Dallas’s most endearing features, of course, is his extremely expressive eyes … i’ll admit, i had a lot of fun with both of these boys, but especially Dallas’s expressions.and when it came to using the old, spikey post for a few photos, it was a no-brainer to use Dallas, and let his personality shine through…
of course, Bo wasn’t without a few expressions himself…of course, we always let loose on our scruffy dog sessions, including playing with the scruffy dog balls … and it didn’t matter that i provided two balls … Dallas always wants Bo’s.we also spent some time on the beach, where the true drama of the weather could really be seen …in fact, in discussing the weather earlier in the day, we weren’t completely certain we would even be having a session. but Nelson was determined to brave the elements … and it paid off. big dramatic sky, then sun, then clouds, and sure, a few rain drops in between.thanks for a memorable session, Pam and Nelson … and thanks Dallas and Bo for showing me your pugalicious attitude.
