I’m so happy to finally share these sweet Lab girls with you! I photographed them on a sunny afternoon back in March, at their lovely home in Naples. Summer is a gentle old girl of 14, and Emma is her 5 year old energetic sister. These two are your typical wonderful Labs–they love their pool, tennis balls, and people! You all know I have a major soft spot for Labs, so I loved photographing these girls, capturing them playing with their tennis balls, relaxing in the house, and swimming in the pool. Summer has those sweet puppy dog eyes that you just cannot say “no” to, and Emma has an unending supply of energy to play fetch and swim. Together, they are the perfect Lab duo. They made this Lab-loving girl very happy to be a pet photographer!

I think it’s time for another Friday Five post! I’d give a rambling introduction, but I don’t think that’s very necessary, so let’s jump right in, shall we?

  1. Time – Can you believe that it’s already July? We’re halfway through 2015! Time is flying by. In August, I’ll have owned my horse for 3 years. My nephew just turned one. My niece is already five. My sweet Buddy is an old man at twelve. It’s crazy how fast life starts to move as you get older. I remember thinking that time passed so slowly when I was a kid–it took forever for each birthday and Christmas to arrive. Now they’re here and gone in the blink of an eye! While I’ll admit that the speed of life can get a little bit overwhelming, I am grateful that every part of my time and existence is held in the loving hands of my Creator, and I can trust Him all the time. Even when life is moving too fast for me to keep up.
  2. Peanut Butter – I was never a big fan of peanut butter as a child, but I eat it every day now. I put it in my oatmeal, on toast and rice cakes, and use it in recipes. Add chocolate and it’s even better. I’m hungry just typing this! I found some fancy peanut butter at a local health food store that I want to try out. I think it was chocolate and coconut? Yum!
  3. Books – When I first moved to Orlando, I decided to leave most of my books on my bookshelf at my parent’s house. I don’t have a lot of time to read, so it didn’t seem necessary to bring all of those books. But once I got to Orlando, I missed them. Those books are like old friends. Each story has touched me in different ways, at different times in my life. I just love a well-written story and pages filled with character. And the smell of books… best thing ever. So, when I went back home for a visit a couple of weeks ago, I packed up all my books and loaded them into my car. And now they are right back where they belong, on an antique bookshelf at the foot of my bed. I’m a happy bookworm. :)
  4. Jurassic World – I don’t think any explantation is necessary for this one. It was awesome.
  5. Rain – Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for rain that nourishes the earth. But I looked at the forecast for the next week and it was not promising sunshine. Which means I can’t get out and ride my horse. Or run. Sadness. But, I guess it’ll be a good opportunity to read some of those books I brought back to Orlando with me, right?

And finally, here’s a look at my life in iPhone pictures. If you want to see more, you can find me on instagram @emileefuss!

Meet Chloe! I photographed this gorgeous German Shepherd girl on a bright, sunny morning at New Smyrna Beach last month. She was happy to model and show me all of her favorite things to do at the beach: swimming, fetching her frisbee, and running along the shore (from her mom, to her dad, and back again). I enjoyed capturing her in her element! The location was perfect, too. I can’t tell you when I last visited the East coast, so it was nice to see what the beach is like on this side of the state. I loved the pathways and calm blue water in the inlet at New Smyrna Beach. It was a fantastic spot for Chloe’s session.

I first met Chloe and her mom at Paws in the Park. With her bright eyes and beautiful long coat, Chloe stood out to me, and I just had to photograph her! I’m so thankful that I had the opportunity to visit New Smyrna Beach with Chloe and her parents. It was a great, fun way to test out this beach as a spot for future sessions. Many thanks to Chloe and her family for the wonderful session!

If you have an outgoing, well-behaved, and good-looking dog model like Chloe, consider signing up for the Dog Model Database! I work with dogs from the database when I need models for commercial shoots or personal projects. It’s a great way to get a complimentary session and experience something fun and new with your pet. Sign up–it’s super easy!
