Maya, the sweetest dog

columbus-dog-photography

I had the most wonderful time with this beautiful German shepherd / lab mix named Maya. She is 11 years old and moving a bit slow but what a gorgeous creature she is. Maya was calm enough to go off leash and even walk down the sidewalk calmly. I joked with Maya's owner that my own dog would have been halfway to Columbus hitch-hiking if we let her off the leash!

We did a very early morning photo session so we could get the best light. There was a lot of morning dew and Maya didn't want to sit and get her bum wet. Who could blame her?

We started in the backyard for pictures and by the time we moved to the front of the house and the sun had warmed the grass nicely and we had a happy, comfortable, sweet, gentle Maya looking at the camera, ready to model.

Look at that face! I made some silly sounds to get her ears perked up.

After all that hard work, Maya got to relax in her favorite spot.

Look at this dog in front of the fireplace. Is that a Christmas card picture or what?

Jax, the rambunctious dog

Jax is one rambunctious dog. Oh, did I say dog? I meant PUPPY. This dog is pure energy. Long gangly legs, happy disposition, and an adorable curiosity for everything. What a funny little (ok, big) boy he is. Jax is a one-year-old black lab and was SO patient when clearly he wanted to run.

Jax's owners have a dog trainer working with him and I'm pretty sure I set back his progress a few lessons. I wasn't exactly discouraging him jumping on me and giving me doggie hugs and kisses.

Who's a good boy? Jax is a good boy!

I just can't take any more of his smooth fur and those big eyes just begging to play. I'll admit it - I asked to watch Jax if his owners go on vacation. They just met me for the first time today so they probably won't take me up on it, but I would do it!

Bella, the patient yellow lab

Every few weeks we visit my husband's family in Plain City, Ohio. It's a quick trip from northern Columbus and we just have the best time. Ever since we moved from Dayton to Columbus, we make a point to scoot down the road from Delaware County over to Union County at least once a month for a visit.

For ten years my husband's family had a wonderful yellow lab named Maggie, who was best friends with Bella, the yellow lab next door. My husband's family likes to say that Maggie taught Bella everything she knows. Sadly Maggie is no longer with us but Bella carries her sweet spirit. When Bella doesn't want to listen or starts to act up at the vet, her family just asks, "Bella, would Maggie do that?" and she straightens right up! Bella loves to play and her favorite pastime is tearing up cardboard soda containers.

I took these pictures for Bella's family in December. Can you believe it's winter in these photos? And can you believe she's a grown dog? She looks like a puppy! We had a lot of fun. Just looking at her face in these makes me laugh. Aren't dogs the best?
