Pet Photography - Out takes

December 20, 2019  •  1 Comment

This week's pet photography theme gives a 'behind the scenes' look at what happens when rescue dogs have different ideas than we do.  I recently reviewed our photos from this year, 2019.  We have shared almost 600 photographs of over 45 dogs and 20 puppies this year alone!  That's definitely a lot of future pets being photographed.  My partners, Jim Vargas and Greg Turner, have helped with each shoot along this way and without them, I would not be able to have such great success - thank you.

Now let's look at some of the out takes.

When the dog doesn't want to have their photo taken and you now realize how strong they are!

Then they get into position - you know they are looking at something over your shoulder - but are they about to spring into action? Somehow, everything looks good except the legs just don't look right!

I know I am a big dog, but maybe if I hide behind Jim he can protect me from those things aimed at me!

You think you have just about everything right - and something gets their attention that you don't see because you're looking through the camera lens...

Ok, maybe the bubbles idea is not going to work - but it was worth a try!

I'm tired - are you guys done yet?

When you're trying to get a litter of puppies to stay put - they were all tired and almost asleep before we moved them into the chest....go figure.

This rescue dog was so scared, I think he was figuring if I slide out of here on my belly.....maybe it will work.

but all he really wanted people time with Jim.

This little girl wanted nothing but to sit right next to me - and I was told to kiss her - not sure if she liked that or not.

And sometimes we just enjoy our moments with the rescue dogs.

Just in case you're curious, they all came around and we got great photographs of each.

Each dog is unique.

Each dog has different experiences in previous home

Each dog might have preferences on female vs male (we have both on our team)

Their stories are unique, their past is unique and their future is hopefully brighter than it was before they joined the rescue world.

Thank you for the opportunity to meet each of you and have fun while we created beautiful photographs of you!
