At Long Last

Desi won a free session that I donated to Windy City Canine Rescue's Bark in the Park event back in the summer.  We finally managed to get together for some pictures of the pups a few weeks ago and I'm now finally managing to blog about it!

Izzy, the lab, used to come to daycare quite regularly, but I hadn't seen her in a while.  I'm not sure she recognized me, but it was sure nice to see her again.  She looked great and is just as fun loving as ever.

Marlee, the chihuahua cross, spent the entire session wowing me with how much spunk chi's really can have.  This girl, is not a pocket princess!

We got together shortly after a major snowfall.  The wind had blown most of the snow off the fields but a tractor had to be brought in to clear off their driveway which made for some fun man-made drifts for the dogs to run on.

Izzy had fun amusing me by running over and over the hill after her ball.

While Marlee spent most of her time enjoying the view from the top.

We also had a little man helping us by throwing the ball for the dogs.

He also really liked to pose for the camera.  :)

Thanks Desi for letting me have fun with the girls (and little man)!  I hope you enjoy the pictures.



I'm the first to admit that I don't do a lot of editing to the photos I take.  I definitely prefer the natural look and let's face it, dogs don't care if they are a little overweight, or have a double chin or a mole in a funny place. That is who they are and that is what I want to capture.

But there are times when some editing is needed - mainly to remove things like a leash or something distracting in the background.  If you've been putting off a session because your dog isn't reliable off leash, don't worry about it!  We can either do the session in an enclosed location, or I can edit out the long line that allows them to run and explore, but at the same time keeps them safe.
