     A Poochon or Bichpoo Pet Portrait Session

    Well, here is Augie the Bichpoo Flying Nun of the dog world.  Augie is a very cute  8.5 year old Bichpoo (a Bichon Frisé Poodle Mix) with ears that have a mind of their own. When we scheduled the session the weather was  perfect, 75º  days, low humidity and dark blue skies.  A photographers dream.  On the day of the portrait session not only was it very cold but the wind was blowing. Ann (Augie’s mom) did not want to reschedule because the next day he was going in for a teeth cleaning and the Vet would shave his leg for the IV.  Not a good look for a pet portrait.

    At The Atlanta Park

    Bundled up, everyone arrived at the park.  I started to unpack and was thinking about the darkish background I would  need to shoot Augie against. This would emphasize his puffy white coat and give a nice separation from the surroundings. I looked over at Augie; the wind was blowing  his big puffy white ears all around. It was like some mad invisible puppeteer was controlling them. To get his ears not to cover his face, I had to point Augie into the wind, like a plain lining up on a runway for takeoff. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t.

    All’s good in the end

    We ended up with some nice photographs. I love the black and white version of the images because it gives a nice contrast from the back ground and Augie’s flying ears give the images a whimsical quality.

    Thanks Ann it was fun.

    Puppy Portrait Fun

    I had a great time photographing Hank, a very energetic 7 month old pup. When I walked in, the house was immaculately clean. This made me a little nervous  not knowing where we where going to be able to shoot. This was not a problem after all.  As it turned out, Hank got a one day reprieve from the absolutely DO NOT GET ON THE FURNITURE standing rule. This reprieve and the introduction if hot dogs ramped up Hank even more. As it turn out he love to be up on the couch.  Hank was a great model and a very smart dog. He learned the command Pillow, (which is run as fast as you can, jump up on the couch, and bury yourself in a pillows) in two tries. I think Shannon (Hank’s mom) is still trying to unteach that command to Hank.  Over all it was a very good portrait session and we ended up with a lot of great images.
