Project 52 | Head Tilt

The latest challenge for Project 52 was “Head Tilt!” Now, none of our dogs have a dramatic, adorable head tilt. They have a lot of other cute quirks, but the head tilt is not on the list! I figured Penny would be the most likely to tilt her little Boston noggin, so we headed out into the yard for her mini photo shoot. I made all kinds of noises. Tried the squeaker–nothing. Whistled–nope. Made all kind of shrill and strange noises, and Penny just stared at me like she hadn’t heard a thing. Then I hissed at her like a cat, and for a brief moment, we had a head tilt! Then I whined like a sad dog, and another little head tilt! Those were the only two sounds that worked, and they only worked once. But we did it, we got the head tilt!

Tara - You could almost make an entire project about – what does this noise do?
I recently photographed a tiny dog who wouldn’t acknowledge me unless I barked like a big dog :)

Where do you get the 52 prompts from??

Daisy & Tristan | Sarasota dog portraits

Daisy and Tristan came by for their closeup last month, and I had a wonderful time photographing them. The duo is owned by Meg Nichol of Positively Simple Dog Training, so not only are they sweet and photogenic, they are super well-behaved. Daisy–the shy, red girl with the big ears–was rescued by Meg after Hurricane Charlie. Shortly after Daisy came into her life, Meg adopted Tristan the Muppet–I mean, Havanese. :) He is Daisy’s best friend, a mellow and calming presence helping her to relax. He is one cool guy! Daisy and Tristan adore their mom. I loved how intently and lovingly they watched Meg and tried to please her. She is a lucky woman to have such a wonderful pair of dogs in her life. And I think I’m lucky, too, because I got to photograph them! :)

Enjoy the images! And if you’re in need of help with your dogs, please consider Positively Simple Dog Training. Remember Meg’s slogan: “It’s never too late to ask for help!”

Project 52 | The Eyes

I love this week’s Project 52 theme! We were challenged to capture our pets’ eyes. Now, I just love to capture detail shots, especially of animals’ eyes. Buddy has the most handsome brown eyes that I’ve ever seen, so of course, I had to photograph him for the challenge. Penny also wanted to join in. I couldn’t leave her and her googly Boston eyes out, especially when she was staring at me so intensely. Enjoy!
