Nicole, the mommy of these three had been wanted to do a session since forever and e finally managed to set a date only in November! A short story on why its important to read the map or scout parking spots before hand: This was the first time for either of us to drive to the park (I had walked there before) and it was only upon reaching did we realise that it was a 10 minute walk to the shoot location. I gave her a quick buzz telling her I might be late, turns out she had also just arrived and was walking too.
It was a blast shooting the three with the matriarch of the group Kiki more or less in her own world, and Kei and Stitch being over so sociable and food motivated As always we start with a little energy burning, yes even for the mom…
Then it was the old girl Kiki’s turn. She had much energy left in her !
How do we get these running shots? Well maybe these two pictures from Stitch’s attempt will help clear things up.
And of course I had to try getting up close to capture those crazy faces
We wanted to move on to another part of the park for the ” sit still and look pretty” part of the session but Stitch and Kei had other plans
After they were properly tired though they still had the energy to pose so nicely. Kiki the grand old lady
And finally the sociable Stitch. While his coat patterns and eye colours are very striking, he looks even better in black and white IMO.
And finally all three together with help from the mom making some weird noises I have never heard before. I might incorporate that into my next shoot
… Stich was well and truly tired towards the end of the shoot though.
But we managed one last shot of the two sausages.
Seems like short-legged dogs do have more fun eh?
