I am in the process of unpacking in our “temporary” house from our move from Columbus to Boardman, Ohio. I am also trying to wrap up all of my blog posts from the last few weeks of portrait sessions. Life is crazy for us right now and I will be so happy to finally get settled this week. After weeks of packing, it’s time for the unpacking to begin!
One of my last dog clients in Columbus was also one of the first dogs I photographed back in 2010. Solomon, a Siberian Husky, was just 1 1/2 years old when I photographed him in German Village at Schiller Park. His person, Monica, contacted me about getting some updated photos for holiday gifts. Monica’s mom had requested a new photograph of her for the “kids wall” in her home. Being the awesome pet parent that she is, the dogs were included.
This time, the photographs included not only Monica and Solomon but also her boyfriend Mike and the newest addition to their family, Gerbil. We meet at Frank Fetch Park in German Village on a late Saturday afternoon for the portrait session. This is just a tiny park, but we were lucky to have it pretty much all to ourselves during photos. With the exception of some other dogs passing by for their evening walks, it was peaceful and perfect.
Mike and Monica had been fostering Gerbil for the last few months. They fell in love with him during the fostering process and just the week of the photographs they had submitted their adoption paperwork for him! It was perfect timing for portraits with the new adoption.
The dogs did fantastic, as did their people for their portraits. Siberian Huskies are so beautiful and I just love their stunning coats and amazing blue eyes. Here are a few images from their session.
