some dogs and some breeds are just made for the camera, and Henry and Martha — two much-loved Bernese Mountain Dogs — are such a breed. when it comes to photographing dogs, some colors and coat types are just naturally loved by the camera, and Berners are one of those. add to that a wonderful nature and an equally wonderful guardian to spend my afternoon with, and this Big Picture session turned into one of the most memorable sessions of last year.
i should also note – as there are still a couple of session openings for early November before the 2015 scruffy year is completely filled up — these photos of Henry and Martha were taken November 24th last year. November is beautiful! …and probably my favorite month to shoot in.
in Doug’s words: “I also wanted to thank you again, Illona, for all of the wonderful shots you took of Henry and Martha. I’ll always remember that as a wonderful day. At the time I just wanted to get some professional pictures taken of them while they were still vibrant. I thought we still had lots of time with them both, just another lesson that you can’t take anything for granted.”
