Ready, Set, STOP!

We headed out to one of our favorite properties in northern Virginia last week – The Kennels at Stoneleigh.  Set amidst the fields and woods of Virginia’s western Loudoun county, it is a true paradise. And dogs get to stay there!

We were hired to shoot 4 dogs. Two in one family and two as a surprise for a sister.  We started with Riley.  We ended with Riley. While the weather was perfect to begin, the clouds blew in and the light went – just like that.  Normally we add light to sessions when this happens. But with only one assistant, 4 high energy dogs, and no one to hold the light – we had to stop the session.

The dogs are gorgeous, as is the location.  We’re not sure when we can finish this shoot as the dogs go home today and we are booked solid. Hopefully we can figure something out as these 4 dogs together will be grand.

In the meantime – here is Riley!
