a shot of summer on this grey day ~ {Ontario pet photographer}

i figured today — our third day of dreary grey, rainy weather, here on the fringes of hurricane Sandy — would be a great day for a recap of a few images from our scruffy summer … a little shot of sunshine and blue skies…

these are images which have already appeared on the scruffy dog facebook page … but we share them here in case you missed some!

first up, Reese and Rio …  these girls are such awesome and willing models.  then again, it’s not their first time around the scruffy block.  these two girls had their first couple of scruffy sessions several years ago … and this isn’t their last.  they’re already on the books for next fall.

their session was supposed to be just a quick one down in the train tunnel of graffiti … but i couldn’t pass up the ripe wheat fields and dramatic skies … so we took a little detour and grabbed a few extra shots.
then we have Charlie … what an amazing boy this is.  so ball-motivated and, as such, superb to work with, in or out of the water … but mostly “in”.

and since i seem to have a backlog of images of resident mcscruffy, merrick goobernuts, i figured i’d show just how fun-loving this boy is.  he loves, loves, loves his Flappy …

but more than anything, this boy loves to work … loves his training bumper, no matter what the terrain or how rough the water.

he does have to wear a floatation device, however.  he’s a strong swimmer, in spite of his short legs … but where merrick runs into trouble is in his enthusiasm and his never-quit attitude.  he would literally swim until he sank … so the floatation device (made by Ruffwear) gives me peace of mind that i’m not going to have to rush in after him if he tires, if an undertow grabs him, or a current starts to take him downstream in the case of the Grand River here at home.

gosh, i love this little goober so much … probably even more than he loves that darn bumper.

… and it only makes me realize that i really do need to start taking more photos of my big girl matea …

then again, merrick — once terrified of the cameras — has become a real camera hog.  he carries on like nobody’s business if i have the lens pointed at anyone other than him.

and finally we have the lovely Tora who came to scruffy dog territory for her session…

how beautiful is this girl?

i hope you enjoyed this little facebook recap.  stay tuned for much more!!

Kimi - Hello!
I absolutely think these are amazing! They’re so sharp!
If you don’t mind, I was wondering what lenses you use and if it’s all natural lighting.
Thanks!
