What could be cuter than a Pug? {Long Island Dog Photographer]

Meet Kaworu, one sweet puppy!  He is named for a Japanese fictional character.  He was so much fun and a bit of a challenge to photograph.  Black dogs are not the easiest to photograph but they also provide a great opportunity to create spectacular images for the same reason.  Of course the other challenge is Kawrou is a puppy, and like 2 year old children, like to move around almost continuously!

Michelle and I were fortunate enough to experience a wonderful 3 day workshop by the great Rachel Hale.   We knew that a black pug puppy was booked for the studio this week so we were delighted that one of the demonstrations she did was with a black pug puppy on a black background.  This is not something we had done before so we were excited to give it a try with Kaworu.  We are delighted with the results!


Louisiana Days: Brrrrr!

Thank goodness Miss A is a pro and handled the really chilly overcast weather like a champ.  The next day of course was warm and beautiful but we had the day we had and managed to create some beautiful images.  Thanks to A for being such a good sport!

She has had quite a few years of training!  We have been doing annual photography sessions since she was 16 months old and she is now 10!  Where does the time go?  She is growing up from a beautiful baby to a beautiful young girl.  I miss you LB!
