meet handsome Kava …

this Gift Certificate shoot has been a while coming … knowing that this mal needed a snowy backdrop, Kava’s parents waited for just the right day.

and they agreed that the area around the scruffy dog headquarters was as good a place as any as far getting some great shots of this gorgeous boy.

it was a gorgeous afternoon, with some glorious sun.

and there’s always room to run in this neck of the woods.

and how gorgeous is that coat of Kava’s?

Kava even sang for me when coaxed with enough treats.

i should mention — since i am asked this frequently by viewers of the blog — leashes and long-lines are removed from images ordered by the clients.  i can’t possibly remove  them from every single photo; i’d be at it for days.  in this case, the line used is one that i bring to any shoot where the dog can’t be entirely trusted off-leash … 60′ of light climbing line that could easily hold a horse, yet is light enough to let the dog run.

in Kava’s case, he’s generally good off-leash, but after scaring up a bunny and taking chase during the shoot, the line was put back on for safety’s sake.

besides the long-line, i always bring treats … gooooood treats apparently. here i’d given Kris a few to entice Kava away from the camera.

Fenne - beautiful dog, great pictures!

SqueakDog Pet Photog - LOVE these pictues! I always wait for spring/summer/fall to get good shots, but you continue to inspire with amazing photos in the winter!

nick - Awesome session 😀 He looks very handsome indeed!

alexa - Gorgeous images! Love all the sun flare you caught.

Jill Beninato - I love all of these….the shot of the dog howling with the owners in the background is great…

Karen - They are all gorgeous photos but as a former husky owner I have to vote for the B&W “howling” shot…..nothing depicts a husky/malamute better…

jennifer metzger - the 1st, 2nd, and 7th (leaping) shots are my favorites, along with the howling shot. Fabulous.

tina - what a gorgeous dog…great shots!!!

Michelle - Stunning photos and Kava is so beautiful! The owners chose the perfect day, and you’re right – the setting is just right. Love the shots!

Bari - WOW! I read daily, but these made me feel compelled to comment. They are wonderful!!

Marla - Lovely entry, Illona. I know everyone has their own tastes but I so hope they choose 165. It’s a gorgeous shot anyway but the camera flare just adds to that and makes it that much more special.

wendy - Gorgeous as always. I love the singing one!

tee4tia - glorious photos and beautiful dog.
