It was almost two years ago that I first met my wonderful business partner Don, and his partner Kevin. At that time we photographed their three Westies at their beautiful home.
New to the family then was Cassie, also known as Girlie. She was a shy girl who preferred to stay on the periphery and watch her brother’s antics. Now, two years later, Girlie was much more approachable and easier to photograph.
Enter Penny. A.K.A. Penny Loaf, Henny-Penny. A white schnauzer, rescued last fall from a rescue group who had snatched her from a hoarder. Though Penny has come a tremendously long way since entering this “white dog” household, she had yet to experience a photo session. And while Girlie hovered about when we shot 2 years ago, Penny ran for cover this year.
We still managed though to coax and cajole and wrangle a few lovely photos. Penny has these remarkable ears that move about like antennas. I’m so glad I got a few shots that show them!
As always Blake and Dash were the consummate hosts. Smiling, playing, and ready to pose.
Don and Kevin have this amazing ability to bring damaged, neglected and sometimes abused pets into their home, and with time and a lot of love, allow them to flourish. Penny is no exception.
It was a magical evening.
