Our day at the beach was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold and even though the skies were a bit gray, the light was perfect for these two pups and their mum. Meet Bernie and Idris. Bernie, a tall blonde with a beautiful smile - was a runner, so he had to stay on leash at all times, but that was OK - honestly, I don’t think he really cared. Idris on the other hand, a silver lab was really good off leash, he was very obedient and was right there at his mums side except when he was running around taunting Bernie with a stick! These two were absolutely hysterically to watch and photograph. Even more important, this photo session was a birthday present for their dad! Woo hoo - he is going to love these!
We met up at one of my favorite local dog friendly beach.The tide was low and perfect fro those amazing reflections I love. Although the sky was gray, there was still texture and it added to the drama of the landscape around us. We had Idris and Bernie stand for a few shots and then sit for a few shots and then sit together for a few more....then mum found a stick. Idris was all about chasing that stick, running into the ocean and back out, shaking it off and antagonizing Bernie to a game of tug.So much fun. I was wet, Mom was wet, the dogs were wet...we had a great time and the photos were perfect.I even included a before and after of Bernie with his collars and leash and after - all removed. One of my favorites was when the two were standing next to each other and then Bernie would tilt his head...you could totally tell that he was a hunter.Almost fox looking as he starred down at the sand, listening to the bubbly noises made by the burrowing crabs.
What a wonderful day spent with a couple of wonderful pups!
