Valentines with Holly part 1

By February 22, 2009Blog, Events

Last week I had the pleasure of covering another dog party over Valentine’s Day for an adorable dachie called Holly. As her mom is a dedicated volunteer of Noah’s Ark CARES , she requested that all presents be made as donations to the organization so guests could have fun and do a good deed too πŸ˜€ What her mom was not aware of though was that her friends had contacted me also and were planning on giving her a surprise present and asked me to do an album for her and her dogs.




I’m happy to report she was clueless until we sprung it on her πŸ˜€ The rest of this blog will be dedicated to the other furry happenings at the party πŸ™‚

Picture intensive so click the link below for the full post. It was a very hot day but the dogs certainly had a fun time socializing and sniffing around! I rented a 35/1.4 for the event just too see if its suitable for my shooting style (and to fully utilize the full frame sensor!) Here are quick snaps of some of the guests whom you might recognize from an earlier post

One special guest was a dog called Batman who is born with a nervous disorder that leaves him more or less unable to coordinate his limb movement. The end result is that he moves around by wiggling his body around.Β  His mom took care of him as a puppy and he is now 4. Tremendous amount of dedication there.

Here we have Goldie a very senoir dog who is almost blind. He still manged to have some fun though he liked to stake out the water bowl πŸ˜€

And here he is demonstrating the wonderful bokeh of the 35/1.4 @1.8 πŸ˜€

And whats a party without food? Here is the spread of food for the dogs(except the cupcakes at the top) kindly sponsored by US Doggie Bakery. They specialize in making human-type food thats safe for your dogs to eat. Its also probably wayy healthier than commercial kibble since there are no preservatives or additives.

And of course a pink cake for the birthday girl πŸ™‚

As you can see holly’s mom was so not expecting the double celebration.

That lady feeding holly happens to be the boss of US Doggie Bakery πŸ™‚ Holly is just interesting in that biscuit..

Thats the end of part 1 πŸ™‚ Part 2 will be up tomorrow !
