big, bold and bright
i met loki and angus with their momma bright and early on a chilly fall day in the beaches for our photoshoot/playdate.
loki (named for the norse god of mischief) suits her name. she is a bundle of energy and is obsessed (that’s putting it lightly) with her soft bite floppy disc. as long as it’s in sight she is running, jumping, barking and anxiously awaiting for it to be thrown. she buried it, dug it up again, lost it in the surf, braved the water to retrieve it, lept to the heavens for it, played tug-of-war with it. you would never guess in a million years that this pretty beagle/blue heeler cross is 9 years old.
angus, is a distinguished older gentleman who was rescued 7 months ago from a wonderful non-profit shelter in westfield, new york. the handsome 11 year old blue heeler has a gentle soul and laid back energy…definitely the yang to loki’s yin.
read angus’ rescue story, written by his momma, here.
we did the usual portrait photos first up, taking advantage of the morning shade. i started to get nervous as i watched as our patch get smaller and smaller as the sun got higher and higher. just so you know i almost never shoot in direct sunlight. so when the sun is finally up (big, bold and bright) i pack it in adn call it a day. but i decided to work with it and play around with some action shots. we all got wet and sandy!
why haven’t i done this before?! it was so much fun!
