i probably should've thought this through...


Our neighbors showed up at the humane society gig so I asked if they wanted a portrait done since I had everything ready to go. I was shooting with my 50mm lens so all shots were taken from the top of a ladder. In order to get the attention of all the dogs, Hubster was giving them treats and leading their eyes up to me. In addition, I sat up there working a squeaky toy. Dogs usually go for one or the other...or both. In this case, when I got up the ladder, the toy was still lying there so I gave these guys the dog treatment. Squeaking, whistling, making kissy noises, everything except throwing them Charlee Bears. Mom and Dad starting laughing immediately, but the first couple shots of the girls was just confusion. Followed closely by them opening their mouths and panting! lol!

So, this is the transitional capture between stage 1 and 2.

I don't think they'll be using it for a Christmas card this year. Unless they want to crop the kids out. Dad had joked earlier about that anyway. He also mentioned something about photoshopping in a hotter wife.

Now you know why I love these people.

I can comment on your blog again! For a while there, the comments section was gone and all I could do was +1 it on Google Plus!

I actually love shots like this...you can tell they enjoyed themselves. That's what it's all about in my book.

Oh my gosh, I think this is an absolutely perfect photo. I love the looks of glee and would so use this in a Christmas Card photo!
