One of my favorite expressions is, "It's a good problem to have." After a session like this, I need to repeat that like a mantra. Because these dogs were SO well-behaved and the weather was perfect and the settings were lovely, I wound up with way more beautiful photographs than I could handle. I always aim to get a lot of great photos that my clients will want to hang on their wall and admire for years to come, but the sheer number of "keepers" was almost overwhelming. It was a tough choice for this family because their dogs are clearly the most handsome boys ever.
These handsome boys are Toby and Gunner. They act as greeters at the family vet office so they are used to lots of people and distractions and other dogs. The weather for our shoot was unreal, too. It was 76 and sunny on the last weekend of October. The two boys were so cooperative and calm as they waited for treats between shots.
I had the pups and their humans get into position and Toby decided to show his personality. He flopped over and decided he was done, done, done. I like how he's still giving me a sneaky glance so technically he's a reluctant participant. By this point I'd asked a lot of the boys and he was clearly finished with me!
Who's a good boy? Toby perked right up when his favorite human wanted to snuggle. Toby, AKA Tobias, and his brother Gunner have middle names. Toby's full name is Tobias Andrew. I love that! And speaking of love, look at the connection between these two. Clearly Tobias Andrew is a love bug.
Guess who decided he wanted to model on the bridge? The sun fell perfectly behind him and backlit his lovely golden hair.
It was so hard to choose just a few images to share here. The family had lots to choose from and they love their portraits, which is the most important thing.
One final image from these two goofs. I love how Gunner is holding Toby back from the leaf, like "Wait, it could be a trap!" They're both so transfixed on it.
