Being in Florida, it can be a little difficult to represent winter in your photos.  In Florida, we start to get cold when the weather dips into the 70s but it still looks like Spring or Summer. So for the pups’ holiday session I decided to use winter hats I found at Target with a simple string of white lights.

It’s hard enough to get dogs to sit still on their own let alone when you put hats on them.  So I put the pugs on a barstool, which is a trick I used to help them sit still.  Please keep in mind that they were supervised, so if they did decide to jump someone would be there to stop/catch them.

My Very First Blog

So I’m not much for writing (that’s my sister’s forte), but I’m going to give it a shot.  If you’re really in to punctuation placement, you may not want to read my blog.  So far I’ve spent about 5 minutes writing this and mentally telling myself, “Commas are your friend, not your enemy.”  Anyway, onto the good stuff!

So naturally, the easiest first blog revolves around my children. I have three of them.  They all have fur.  And four legs.

For this shoot, I focused on our two pugs (Bugsy and Kallie) mostly because our larger dog Dexter is a little camera shy.  I’d been wanting to capture our pugs’ food obsession for awhile.  So, I picked up a few treats from PetSmart, put them just out of reach, and let them go nuts.  Needless to say, I ended up with some really fun photos.  But, don’t worry.  No pugs were harmed in the making of these photos and they both got treats at the end.
