As predicted the Saturday skies poured rain for most of the day.¬† Folks were accommodating though and most were able to reschedule their holiday sessions.
Sunday dawned cool and sunny – we were off to a great morning start! We started with our good friends the Shaffers with their FOUR dogs, Marley, Emma, Jake (of puppy series Jake fame), and Jen.
This family of dogs is a joy to photograph and we love their humans too! Jen is a “silver” lab and is featured in the bottom image. Isn’t that color beautiful? I just loved the way light reflected off of her coat.
I can’t wait to make their holiday cards this year!
Later in the day we met Luke and his family of FIVE dogs! Just a sneak peek here of Luke with one. Believe it or not we got a couple great family shots with mom, dad, Luke and all FIVE dogs which will make lovely cards!
Well, that was the end of the fun for the day. We started our next shoot with Chloe and Riley – two beautiful Weimaraners.¬† We found a gorgeous setting along the creek bank and started shooting. Below is Riley, in one of my favorite images of the day…
And then, without warning, with nary an awkward sound I started seeing this in my LCD screen:
This my friends, is the dreaded ERR message. A jammed shutter. A long UPS trip to the Nikon service center.
So alas, we were forced to abandon that session and the last of the day (with 3 of our favorite Cockers) and reschedule for next week.
A rental is on its way. A backup camera has been purchased – OUCH! With any luck we’ll still have some decent shooting weather so I can make it up to those who had to reschedule.
