If you are reading this blog…chances are you’ve seen these pictures before either on FB or on my website…but I think the difference here, is I get to talk about them if I want to and share a little more about the photos, the people, or animals in them, or the shoot as a whole.
I wanted to share these pictures of Karen and Rio. When I first met them, Karen was just finishing up grooming him in the barn and I was immediately drawn to him…his color is so bold and loud. For any one who likes apps…he’s sure to catch your attention! Rio is quite a character and full of himself in a funny way. The were the first ones I photographed this day at their barn and boy…was it COLD! Not only was the temp in the single digits but there was a wind that made it even worse. Then the snow came! lol I thought for sure there would be people cancelling their appointment, but no on did! They trudged out into the snow, put on a smile, and got the job done. At first I thought the snow was going to be annoying, and sometimes it was coming down so hard…it looked like I had big snowballs right in front of my lens. But this first pic of Karen…looks just right to me to make it a little more wintery. She ended up using this image for her Christmas card…an excellent choice I think. The 2nd photo of the two of them just makes me smile. It shows how much Karen truly loves and enjoys Rio and is just a fun moment between the two of them that I was happy to have caught. Maybe Karen will let me go back and photograph Rio running loose in the snow this winter…I think he’d be a site to see. 🙂
