Photographing pets is a breeze for me after nearly 10 years of practice. But, not gonna lie – photographing pets and babies is HARD. Really hard. Most new Moms are just trying to survive, return to work and juggle a family. I am doing all of that, but also try to push myself and photograph Remington with our baby because I know these moments are flying by already. She will have so much fun looking back at these antics with her first dog. Sometimes a funny idea just pops in my head and it’s my personal mission to make that photograph happen.
Lucky for me, our baby is wonderful and Remington is beyond behaved. Such a patient dog that he literally sat here next to Abrielle, tempted by dog biscuits strewn across her table and waited like a statue while I took a bazillion photos. Needless to say, he got all those biscuits as a reward when I was done. (He also shared with Abby who isn’t quite as easy of a model, so she hasn’t appeared in too many of these shots.)
He wasn’t quite as thrilled with the head apparatus shot, but he’s never been a fan of wearing anything on his noggin. It really messes with his perfectly coiffed look I think. But, still – what a good sport. Love these two so much! Happy holidays and be sure to keep following the blog for more adventures with these characters.
