the hairy beasts ~ {Hamilton, Ontario dog images photographer}

if i receive a phone call from repeat client Derk, i know it’s going to be a hairy time. as the co-guardian of four hairy beasts, he never disappoints when it comes to fabulous dog models.

meet Willow and Dimitri … two of the most gorgeous Afghan hounds ever.

of course, as this was Dimitri’s first time in front of the scruffy cameras, he had to do a little warmup stretching …

Derk came to Kitchener with the hounds on his birthday for a special shoot … kilt and all.  and don’t ask me what’s under that kilt … yes, i lie down on the ground all the time during my sessions, but i wasn’t peeking!

of course, any opportunity that Willow has to nap, well, she always takes it.
