Just a little update on Fall photography sessions. I have a very full three weeks ahead of me with a jam packed schedule of high school seniors, children and pet photos! Bookings for this time of year are filling up quickly as everyone wants to have the stunning Fall colors of Ohio as their backdrops. Currently, there are just two Saturday openings in the month of October and four weekday openings during the last two weeks of the month. November is starting to fill up as well. If you are considering a portrait session this Fall, especially for holiday gifts, please contact me soon to get on the schedule. Session held up to Saturday, December 8th* will be guaranteed to have their portraits and products in time for the holidays. (*Please note, if purchasing an album your session will need to be completed no later than November 18th)
Now, to the good part of this blog post, Gunnie’s portrait session. Every year, my mom has me take photographs of her furbaby for holiday cards. On a recent trip up to Boardman, Ohio, we squeezed in his session between a shopping trip and dinner with the family. We are both always trying to come up with new locations for her Westie’s photos. This year, we picked the area around the Poland Library and across the street at the small park surrounding the Poland Village Town Hall.
Just like taking my own dogs’ photos, taking photographs of my mom’s dog is just as hard. I swear, since these dogs know me and what happens when the camera comes out, none of them feel like listening. I really think they pull out this behavior to earn more treats during the shoots! Gunnie would look every single direction around him besides right at me. It was pretty funny that he wanted nothing to do with cookies or my special noises while we were out. But, later that evening he was giving me full attention at the house with no camera involved.
Sporting his very stylish new Burberry scarf from Etsy, we did come up with some fun images of him for this year’s Christmas card.
The lighting is so beautiful with these.
