Baron the rescue dog, part 2

This picture is so dramatic and fun that it deserved its own post. Read Baron part 1 here.


Doesn't he look like a Mighty Dog? It's a sunset so I was facing west and Baron just gave me exactly what I wanted. Baron is a mutt and a rescue, and he was actually afraid of cameras. At one point he got pretty skittish but we worked it out and he turned into one of the best dogs I've worked with. He was such a cooperative dog when treats were involved! The Trader Joe's treats that look like beef jerky are always a hit. The little girl in his family kept sniffing them saying they smelt so yummy. I think she might be part puppy!

Don't make me choose between these two photographs! One, I love for his head in the air like a superhero. This second one I love because his tongue is out and he's smiling for the camera, which his family never expected he would do.

Slurp! Peanut butter is delicious!

No one is positive what kind of dog Baron is, but boy he is fun and loving. He is such a great dog for these two kids. Just look at this goofy happy grin with his tongue hanging out. LOVE THIS!


Baron was in rescue group and staying with a foster family before his forever family adopted him. The couple who fostered Baron took turns sleeping on the couch with him because he was scared to be by himself when he first got to their house. Eventually he found his way to this fabulous family and just look how joyful he is. He's so happy to be a dog and have these kids draping themselves on him! He has such a playful and sweet disposition. You can tell he loves being a dog.

Here's another sweet picture. This foreheads-touching pose is a favorite of mine for dogs and their people. Sometimes it winds up as noses touching or a big slurpy lick right across the mouth. You never know!

I adore the feel of this candid. I saw a split-second moment where Baron was looking up and relishing being her dog. I love how both their eyes are closed but there's still a connection between them. Usually I prefer outdoor pictures in color, but these felt so timeless and almost had a documentary aesthetic that I had to go black and white. Of course I gave the family the choice between color and black and white, but for me, the contrast is what makes the photograph.

More pictures to come! We had an awesome sunset shot that I can't wait to share. Stay tuned!
