Willy and his friends enjoyed a Picnic this Labor Day Weekend.
I decided to have a doggy picnic this weekend. Carly Sue, Willy and Sadie Rose were all decked out in their western style bibs. They didn’t know what was going on, but they knew treats were involved, so they were game for anything!
They had a great time, but I had a hard time getting good photos of the actual picnic. They were a tad excited about the PB&J sandwiches! I did get some awesome photos before the food frenzy began.
Willy knows the ropes and poses pretty good on cue. We are still working on the whole “watch me” command, but all in all he is a great model.
Sadie Rose started to get the hang of it once she realized that if she sat still and looked at me she got a treat.
She followed Willy’s lead very well, which made my job a lot easier. I am in a temporary foot boot (brace) and my ability to maneuver around is limited. It was very helpful to have Sadie and Willy sit so still for me. Carly Sue on the other hand …
Carly is only 4 months old, very busy and clueless when it comes to photo shoots, sitting still and looking at me. With her it was just a matter of snapping the camera like crazy hoping for the best. I was very happy with this photo of her.
Dog photography is an art. It is a challenge as well, and I am still learning. It helps when you have a great model, like my Willy the Kid. The more I work with him, the easier and better it gets. I hope you enjoy Willy’s life through the camera lens. Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day.
