Megan & Steven

Megan and Steven are great. I loved working with these two. I'd never worked with dogs (or any animals) before, and never had pets growing up, so I'm not accustomed to being around animals. M & S were really laid-back as I got used to their "kids" and played with my camera settings. Speaking of which, I shot this entire session in manual mode. I'm pretty proud of that. It would have been much more stressful if I hadn't had such great subjects to work with.

I had a tough time narrowing down favorites for this post. M & S are just so photogenic that everything came out great. Throw in amazing fall colors and a gorgeous setting, and I pretty much wanted to share everything with you. But I cut it down. Here are my most favorite favorites.

First, meet Winston. Winston is hyper and fun.




And Henry. Henry is a little older than Winston, and much more calm. Almost introverted. Though when a squirrel was spotted, he didn't hesitate to chase it.











This shot was accidental. It's a behind-the-scenes shot. Steven was giving the boys a good talking-to about behaving for me.



Isn't she gorgeous?



The poor dogs were terrified to be on this ledge. The bottom of this window is about at the height of my chin.





Graffiti on the castle, but it makes for a cute picture.









My favorite shot of the day, I think.




Location: Squire's Castle

So cute! I especially LOVE the one of the dog and her boots in the background....but I have a thing for shoes, as you know.
