What will it take for you to look over here?

People often tell me how lucky I am to be a pet photographer. And it’s true. I love my job. But it’s not always a piece of cake. It takes a lot of patience, creativity, flexibility, improvisation, humor, more patience and a dose of luck. Here is a little behind-the-scenes peek at today’s photo session with Mari, my foster dog who is available for adoption through Motley Zoo Animal Rescue.

It went sorta like this…

Hey, Mari! Look! I have really yummy TREATS!

All you have to do is look over here…

.

.

.

No, really! I promise… these treats are so YUMMY!

Don’t you want to SIT for one of these amazing, delicious treats?

.

.

.

Ok, ok. Forget the treats. What if I make some strange noises?

Beep, beep, beep!!

.

.

.

Seriously? Now you are just messing with me on purpose.

.

.

.

Oh! There is a dog walking by? Perfect!

Ok, you hold still and watch the dog and I’ll just sneak in some photos. Cool?

.

.

.

Hold it… Hold it… Got it!

  1. Great idea, great shots, and great execution!! So is Mari like Leon’s sister or cousin or what? Looks like some family resemblance there!? I like the side view pic the best. Not all “mistakes or missed shots” are what they seem!

    On another note, thank God for digital camera’s!! :)

    • John – I was going to Facebook you to tell you I was fostering Leon’s stunt double!!! And she is not only his twin in looks, but in personality too!

      And yes, thank god for digital camera’s ;) I also love the profile photo.
