The summer heat has not been easy on us here at Hound and Hoof Photography! Everyone loves a smiling dog portrait- but I always prefer it when not when *every* picture is a great, big, slobbery smile!!
And, as you might imagine, it’s a challenge to get very hot dogs to put their little tongues inside their mouths.. even for a second!
But, as usual, patience prevailed! And Gailen was the perfect “Cover Boy”. He’s a very well trained dog and he was very responsive to my queues and noises and treats. Whew!! Made my life much easier.
Here are a few of the images we came up with- showcasing this gorgeous breed of dog and the hometown of our model!
So how excited do you think little Gailen was to be in Mom’s corvette?? SUPER excited! First time he’s ever stepped foot -or paw- in it, in fact. I think he’s going to be begging to ride in style to the Feeder’s Supply from now on. After all, he is a big- time model.
By the way… this breed of dog is so stunning. I love LOVE LOVE to photograph them!!
I was reluctant to develop anything in black and white because Gailen’s eyes are such a gorgeous yellow color. But.. I like this image because of his intense gaze.
So one of these photographs will be on the calendar cover- not sure which one. But I’m sure you’ll want to buy a calendar to benefit the Louisville Weimaraner Rescue, which serves Kentucky and Indiana. It’s a great organization working to save the lives of some wonderful dogs.
