It’s Gonna be a Beautiful Baby! (Winnipeg Maternity Photographers)

Leave a comment

I have enjoyed photographing my 3 maternity models in the last week. Lee-Ann was model number 3 and is glowing with her pregnancy;  joy  written all over her face.

The only glitch in this session was that my not so well-behaved dog, Zara, barked for most the session. She was upset that another dog was in her territory and with her mommy.

Thank you Lee-Ann for being so understanding.

Here’s a preview of last night’s session:

Last week we welcomed a new member to our family; an adorable puppy named Roo.

Roo looks like a miniature Zara but as far as we know, they are not related.

Here is the most adorable puppy I’ve seen in a long time with his new Mama!

Dogs are very near and dear to my heart. My fiance and I have 3 dogs between us so it’s always a pleasure for me to photograph someone’s dog. This guy named Murphy was a gem. He listened and sat and is beautiful as well.

These are our 3 beasts:

And this is the amazing Murphy! Isn’t he a darling?

These 2 huge dogs came to the studio last weekend. We are dog lovers here so I always welcome dogs into the studio. These 2 were a bit bigger than most of the dogs that come but they were great to photograph. I love those large eyes and big tongues!

When I had my first Westie we had a big picture printed and framed for above our fireplace. A friend of mine used to give me a hard time because she thought the dog picture was larger than any pictures of the kids. Well, when I look at this dog picture of these 2 adorable beasts, I see it above a fireplace or on a large wall.

And here are two adorably cute kids:

Today was my first session after the studio renovation. It was great to be able to use the studio again and I loved my new brick backdrop. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of this one.

I enjoyed photographing this good-looking family of four with their little white dog. It had been a few years since our last session so it was nice to see these kids again.

Here’s are a couple of images from this session:

 

Photographing our dogs! (Winnipeg Pet Photographers)

This year I  thought it was be a great idea for my boyfriend John and myself to have a picture of our 3 dogs on our Christmas card.

I set up a holiday backdrop and started on our Christmas card photo session. My hopes were high. I thought I could get one dog at a time into the studio and then stitch together a composite image for the card.  If you have ever taken pictures of dogs, you know that they aren’t the most cooperative subjects, but they do respond nicely to treats, in much the same way that little children respond to Smarties.

I took one dog at a time down to the studio.  The dogs are never allowed in the studio and being there made them anxious. Their number 1 priority was to leave, as seen in this image of Fergus. I tried with Maddie and Zara but it was hopeless. I needed a new plan.

I waited for John to get back to my house and enlisted his help. I took my best treats, some yummy bacon snacks and put all three dogs on leashes. John was in charge of giving them the treats and keeping them in line. It wasn’t easy as I also wanted them to look at the camera.

They look a lot happier in the thousands of pictures that I have of them running on the beach, which only goes to show how hard it is to pose a dog and make them smile for the camera.

But I did get something. The best ones are below.

But those statically posed and somewhat puzzled dogs do not in any way represent the character of our dogs. And isn’t photography about capturing more than a replica of who the person is. Shouldn’t it be about that person/dog’s nature.

The images below capture who our happy, fun, joyful dogs are.

I think what I will do it cut and paste them from these images and use them in a card.

What do you think?

I was at a fantastic seminar on the weekend where the presenter, Marlene Fast, made us think about where our Happy Place was in photography. Well, I was in that Happy Place tonight with this wonderful couple and their fun doggie. This little guy is a bundle of energy at 8 months of age and as cute as can be.

Kildonan Park was a perfect location for this fall photography session (except for a few mosquitoes). The light was perfect; the couple was fun and the dog was cute. As I said; My Happy Place.
