The Best of 2009: Dog Portraits {Columbus, Ohio Photographer}

Next stop on my Best of 2009 list – the pet portraits!! This is a tough one, all the dogs I’ve had a chance to photograph in 2009 have been beyond adorable! I really wanted to feature one of each dog from last year, but I was able to narrow it down to the top three. I hope there’s no hurt feelings from any of the pups that I didn’t make the cut for my Best of 2009! I pick my top three based on my style of shooting and really seeing the personality of the dog in the photograph.


Can’t beat a great action shot of this adorable Lhasa-Poo running crazy through the park.

I just love the expression on her face!!

And of course, my guy! He just looks so serious in this photograph. This photo of Baxter was one of the People’s Choice Weekly Winners for the Best Friends Animal Photo Contest in November!

    Wow, these are three great images. I’m kinda partial to the second one also. But the last one is pretty awesome too.
