Ophelia loves you …
this shoot was a surprise valentine’s present, so … surprise, Bob!
Ophelia is a five-year-old Portuguese water dog whose love for her toys and ball is outmatched only by her love for her owners, Barb and Bob.
on a cold afternoon last week we hit a small trail and let Ophelia fly … and pose …
and Ophelia is quite the poser.
… and a catcher …
and did i say she was a poser?
to be honest, it was hard to get shots of this girl where she wasn’t posing, but i got a few. 🙂
and for those who are curious and who have asked me in the past via emails or on the blog … yes, not every dog can be safely let off leash during a shoot. as a result, i always carry a 60′ light climbing line for safety. and yes, it is removed in post-process when prints and products are ordered. that’s why you don’t often seen me removing leashes and lines in blog entries … it can be a lot of work and it can’t possibly done on every photo. i removed the line from most of Ophelia’s blog images, but not all.
oh, and Bob, someone was on your bed while you were at work … just warning you. but honestly, i got the distinct feeling she’d been up there before. 😉
thanks, Barb and Ophelia, for a fun afternoon. see you soon at your studio consult.
