Handsome Hound Harley!

We knew Harley had arrived long before he actually entered the studio. Harley, you see, is a hound. A large and loud hound.  We heard the hound “aroo” as his human made the corner into the driveway. And there was Harley, nose in the air, ears flapping out the window and a very large voice.

Harley’s human, Lynn, would of loved to have him photographed outside. Lynn however, understands Harley and all of his “nervous nuances.”  Too timid, she feared, to be comfortable on an outdoor shoot, she opted instead for some lovely head portraits in the studio.

I think she made the right decision. Harley was one of those dogs who was keenly interested in the session – for about 15 minutes! And then he was done. Finished, done, ready to move on.  No interest in squeakers, calls, treats – nothing.  Lucky for us we got some great shots quickly!

I  love this one of him on a lighting check.  I think he’s saying, “Yup, I”m handsome.”  I also love that even the most spirited of dogs seem to know it’s something special and they always hang in there long enough to  give us something to make a beautiful portrait!

Thanks for brightening our day Harley!

Lynne (Harley's Mom) - Ok, I know I’m biased but he is a handsome devil!!! I’m so happy with these pics, I can’t wait to see the rest! I’m surprised you didnt name him “Fidgety Harley” – you guys have infinite patience for even the most “challenging” of subjects. Excellent job!! 🙂

Anne Hooks - Oh, gosh – His expressions remind me of Rocky (who is part Plott, so the hound part is there)! Great shots for such a short session.
