Copper + Chase's Sneak Peek

Let me introduce you to Chase and Copper, two incredibly sweet dogs that I was lucky enough to photograph this morning...


I love dogs, and they are a lot of fun to photograph! As long as you have a pocket full of treats, most of them are very willing to sit to have their photo taken, and Cooper and Chase were no different.

My trick is to balance a treat on my lens in order to get the dogs to look at the camera. That's what I did to take these two photos:

Copper...


Chase...


Or sometimes I will hold a treat in my hand while I snap the shutter to get the dogs to look in a slightly different direction, like I did for these photos:

Copper...


Chase...


You just have to be careful that the dog doesn't decide to help himself to the treat and jump at the camera to get it. If that happens, you better be quick or you're going to be cleaning doggie drool off of your lens. Chase almost got mine, but I managed to move it just in time. Although, I'm not always so lucky when I photograph my own dogs!

Thanks, Lisa & Troy, for letting me photograph your wonderful dogs!  It was great getting to take their photos.
