This past week we hosted our first fundraiser for Maxx and Me Pet Rescue (https://www.maxxandme.org) at Advantage Pet Center in Largo, Florida (http://advantagepetcenter.com) and it was a wonderful experience meeting so many dogs - all different - and all fun bundles of fur to photograph.
Today, we photographed another group of dogs for Maxx and Me Pet Rescue - and we met some wonderful dogs. This sweet little girl is a medium size dog, very friendly and very interested in food - I told her we like to work with one simple rule. In exchange for a little modelling, we will give you some yummy food (and if you don't like that, we can give you a bunch of attention!).
As you can tell from her photographs, she was very willing to do a little modeling for us. Over the years of photographing dogs, I have learned several different sounds that often times will give the 'head tilt' that so many people find cute.
Most of the time when I make the 'weird noises' it's just the dog and us photographers - there aren't foster parents, teachers, and others watching - but this time I had a few watching us work with the dogs. One person actually asked what class taught all the noises to attract the dogs - that's the point when you realize that you're really working with the dog and not really paying attention to those around you!
If you're interested in adopting Coco, contact Maxx and Me Pet Rescue at maxxandme.org - you never know if a share on facebook or on some other social media might just be the ticket for a dog getting their forever home.
