This past Christmas I took a photograph of my dog in which I turned the lights from the Christmas trees into paw prints. It turned out so cute that I wanted to try it again for Valentine's Day. I didn't have a Christmas tree still up and I needed only red Christmas lights, instead of white or multi-colored. Finding strands of only red lights in stores over a month after Christmas was no easy feat!
Also like at Christmas I used my favorite crafting tool, the Bowdabra, to create a bow for Colby to wear. I had made huge bows for the presents in my Christmas set, and for this Valentine's portrait I knew I wanted to make a large red bow for her like you'd see on a new car in a Lexus commercial. The whole thing turned out pretty cute! I took this photograph in our basement. She was so captivated by the treats my husband was shaking that she never even looked over at me. She still holds the title as the most difficult dog to photograph, ever. She is like a cartoon character whose eyes turn into spirals whenever food comes out! She's my sweet girl and I'm happy to have to model for me.
The theme this week in the 52-week dog photography challenge was Love. Be sure to check out everyone's takes on the Love theme. Up next is Kim with BARKography based in Charlotte NC. Keep clicking through and you'll wind up back here!
