Taking photos of my “subjects” is one of my favorite things about the pet portrait process. Especially with dogs as awesome and handsome as Rickee. Thought I’d share a few snapshots from our recent session this past weekend on a beautiful day in the backyard. Hope you enjoy them!

I'm purposely ignoring you. 200 photos should be enough.



And he was right. On to the tough part: sorting through ALL of them to find the best portrait worthy shot.

Can’t wait to hear which photo my clients pick for Rickee’s portrait. But he’s such a photogenic pup…I don’t envy their decision!

If you’re curious to see the first aussie I ever painted, check out “Patou’s” portrait on my website.

Thanks, as always, for your interest in my work. New work coming soon!
