Weekend photography...

I've decided I really enjoy taking photos of other people's dogs. It's more of a challenge than my own; I know how to shoot mine for their best sides, so to speak. I know how to adjust colors and backgrounds to make my dogs pop out and stand out. However, since the entire crew of Dune Cardigans and Aurigan was at my house for the Bremerton show, I'd been itching for a chance to practice my photography on someone else's dogs. You can see some of the pictures I took for Dune over on her blog. :) I love her dogs; they were so well behaved. Hunter was really a pleasure to work with - I think with a bit of practice he'd pick up modeling as one more career in his resume!

Of course, the highlight of my photographer's day was how much fun it is to photograph puppies. They don't sit still much. They don't have to look at you. But they do all these freaking adorable things and you hope you're fast enough to catch it on camera. I'll let Dayl over at Aurigan share most of them... this litter is gorgeous... but I have to share a few of my favorite shots of these beautiful pups. The photographer in me is thrilled with them.

One of the pups from Aurigan Cardigans... apparently Matt has good taste for girls. ;) Hey, I knew that. I also know he'd dump me for that pretty face in a heartbeat, sigh.

... Albany next weekend. If you see some crazy person ringside with a camera and a red-brindle dog, hahah, that's probably me and Caleb!

Oooohhh.....gosh....brindle puppies...

*can't breathe...must resist the urge to inquire about those puppies*

Brindle cardi puppies are the only puppies in the world that make me want to vacillate in my "only rescued / adopted / re-homed / retired dogs" Rule.

I may need to go lie down.

Oh, random corgi licks! I love random corgi licks! Do you know you're licking someone's blue-jeaned knee, little fella? Yes, you know...and you're going to do it anyway.

Great photographs, great subjects. :)

Soooo great! You captured some great shots. LE and Bella are by far two of the hardest dogs to get ears on. Ever. And you were totally right that they would look AMAZING with the ocean background.

And dang those puppies are CUTE! I was so happy the weather cooperated too.

Thank you thank you thank you.

Best wishes for Albany! We are sitting tight on this one as we were there two months ago and need to budget other things right now.
