Tomac & Dodge’s mom won a session with me through the Project Wildlife “We Like It Wild” silent auction… and I am so glad she did! These two are the scruffiest, goofiest, most lovable German Wirehaired Pointers around. When I rang the doorbell, I heard a huge commotion on the other side of the door. I think Tomac & Dodge knew that it was time for fun and treats — they even dropped their favorite chewies to greet me with sniffs and kisses. I greeted them with head pats and eventually belly rubs. Well, the belly rubs got them because soon I had two big dogs who wanted to sit in my lap. I loved it!
Once I convinced these two to hop off my lap and get started, they were happy to oblige… for cookies, of course. We shot indoors and out, letting each goofball really show off his personality. You might notice Tomac is rather wet in some of the shots — when we first went outside, he raced down the stairs and leapt into the pool. Hah!
After our outdoor excursion, we headed back inside to one of Tomac & Dodge’s favorite places: their mom and dad’s bed. They hopped right up and told me how this is their bed, but they let their parents sleep here at night. As you can tell from these shots, they weren’t fibbing: they definitely own the bed.
We wrapped up the session when Tomac & Dodge started to get tired and ready for dinner (don’t ask me how they were ready to eat after all the treats they got from me, though!). I really enjoyed photographing these two and truly appreciate the donation that was made to Project Wildlife’s silent auction to win the session with me.
