Buster – The Gentle Giant

Buster is a young, 140 pound Bullmastiff puppy!  He often stays with a neighbor friend of mine in Boulder while his parents are out of town.  Me and my dog Jackie have taken many walks with him since he was a 20 pound youngster. Buster is such a sweet, gentle giant and he loves hanging out with lots of dogs and people.  He had a good time at his portrait session and ate lots of treats!   Since he is young though, he didn’t want to sit for long so we kept his portrait session short and sweet.

Boulder Photo Session Benefiting the Longmont Humane Society.

Two senior bulldogs and their human parents, Amy and James, set out on a lovely afternoon in Boulder for their family portrait session.  The light was beautiful, the grass green and big toothy smiles set the scene.  Ludo, age 12 and his buddy Mara Jade, age 8 had fun sniffing the ground, being in the lime light and trying new poses to get the best shots.  Ludo doesn’t walk so well anymore, so his dad would just pick him up and carry him throughout our session, from scene to scene.  Mara Jade would waddle alongside to keep up. We got a ton of great images that their parents will have to commemorate the bond they have with their pups.  Amy and James were the highest bidders and won this photo session at the silent auction for Homeward Bound, a benefit for the Longmont Humane Society that was held earlier this year.  Each year I donate a session to the fundraiser along with a few prints.dog-photograhers-boulder-evie-photography-1026best-dog-photograher-boulder-evie-photography-101715pet-photos-boulder-evie-photography-1112best-pet-photographers-boulder-evie-photography-1049best-pet-photographers-denver-evie-photography-1011boulder-pet-photos-evie-photography-1111best-dog-photographer-boulder-evie-photography-1030pet-photos-boulder-evie-photography-1103pet-family-photographer-boulder-evie-photography-1120best-dog-photos-boulder-evie-photography-114938best-family-photography-boulder-evie-photography-1146

Mango and Teagan

Mango and Teagan visited with me at my Boulder Photography Studio to have their portraits done. Quite the playful pair, these two live together with their humans in Longmont. Mango has a special job.  He is a therapy dog and he and his mom visit with patients at Longmont United Hospital to lift their spirits during difficult times. I really enjoyed playing them in the studio and giving them lots of treats in exchange for their fun and silly poses for the camera. They are both absolutely beautiful!

Fun in the Fall

This was my third family portrait session with this Boulder family and as usual, there were lots of laughs, playing and tail wagging. One of the best things about family photography is seeing families time and again and seeing how quickly their children grow. We had a perfect fall day full of colorful leaves to play with and to use for a beautiful background.

Lady Bug and Boomer

These two pups created lots of laughs at their pet portrait session in Louisville.  Both are seniors but had plenty of energy running around the yard, jumping for treats and Lady Bug, a Great Dane, especially liked showing off her “baby” stuffie.  Boomer is a Beagle and is now 10 1/2 years old!2016-0911-1071-8102016-0911-1092422016-0911-1041282016-0911-10092016-0911-1156-16x202016-0911-1043292016-0911-1026222016-0911-11152016-0911-10962016-0911-11792016-0911-1153562016-0911-11522016-0911-1052x2016-0911-1005112016-0911-11642016-0911-1177592016-0911-11052016-0911-117258-46

Capturing the Bond.

On a recent pet portrait session, my goal was to capture the bond between Lyn and her best friend Lizzy and to also create an image in silhouette. The bond was obvious and could not be denied!  I was also lucky enough to have an amazing sunset and was able to get a silhouette showing their bond.2016-0621-109233-sm2016-0621-1017-sm2016-0621-116441-sm2016-0621-113938-x-sm2016-0621-1169-sm2016-0621-1040-sm2016-0621-1176-sm2016-0621-1006-sm2016-0621-114839-sm

Jackie & Jesse

Jackie and Jesse are of course, my favorite pet photography subjects. They are, or were always a little shy in my Boulder studio but they also had fun with the challenge of figuring out what I’m asking them to do while showering them with treats.  (Jesse passed away almost two years ago). Then the decision.. color or black and white photos?  Why not both?boulder-dog-photographer-101boulder-dog-portraits-103boulder-pet-photo-105boulder-pet-photographer-100boulder-pet-photography-102boulder-pet-photography-104pet-photographers-boulder-106

 

 

Choose Happy

While on vacation in Massachusetts a few years ago, a friend asked if I’d take some portraits of her horse.  His name was Happy and the name sign on his stall said “Choose Happy”.  I was in awe of his size, his spirit and his gentle demeanor. We walked around the pasture taking photos and several juveniles saw the activity and ran up to me, sniffing, nibbling on my camera strap and bouncing around.  Thank goodness my friend Alix was there to keep the teenagers under control.Horse-Portrait-Boulder-8472-2013-600x900Horse-Photography-100-xBW-600x900Equine-Photography-101-600x900Horse-Photo-Boulder-8472-2013-600x900Horse-Photography-Boulder-104-600x900Horse-Photography-Boulder-1398-600x900
