Wow! This session was intense! Paul and Melissa had some really great ideas...lattes, Christmas tree, lights and of course...Bella and Splinter, their two dogs. I LOVE animals, especially dogs. Photographing them can be very challenging though. Getting them to sit or look at the camera seem like simple things, but trust me...it's a challenge!
On entering their house I was greeted by Splinter (yes, after Splinter the big Rat in the Ninja Turtles...perfect fit!!!). Super friendly, over-sized puppy that's only a few months old. Bella on the other hand was the polar opposite. Wasn't very fond of me and was either fighting with Splinter, barking at me, trying to drink some latte, or looking for her head cone. She's used to having her cone on for allergies and probably felt kind of naked without it. Needless to say, the doggies didn't let me down! We got some really good shots and had plenty of laughs throughout the shoot. Good times Melissa and Paul, thanks again for the latte and lemon- poppy seed bread. Very yummy!!
