YOU ASK US HOW WE DO IT

Many of you leave comments
asking us how we get group shots
of our puppies.


Along the way,
you get a few
really cute "accidents".


This is Lilly's only litter -
it will always be one of our favorites photos.
Dad,
the patient parent,
sits on a stool and waits
and waits
for just the perfect shot.


When Mom decided that she wanted to
do this photo shoot,
it was utter chaos.


And one smart aleck puppy,
who we won't name,
but it's a girl,
kept jumping out of the wagon.



Dad took over as wrangler
and
Mom sat down on the grass
to be the photographer.
Sometimes,
he didn't make it out of the way
before Mom clicked the shutter.


This is the only one that we've
ever cheated a bit with -
we can hear you all going
"we knew that".
Murphy,
the second pup from the left
was looking the other way
and we turned him around
to face the front.

Still,
it took about 100 tries
to get this photo.


First,
Mom tried taking this photo
from across the room
and Carrleigh ran through -
of course that got the pups attention.


Once Mom decided to sit down,
then Ruairi joined in
which helped get more of them standing up.


But then Ruairi
jumped up in
Mom's lap for a second.


It only took about 50 tries
to get this photo.

Sometimes it's just
"dumb-luck".

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh, Ruairi
and
The Sweet Babes

The illusive one that you chase and chase ~ the one that you wait for might not be the one that makes you go oh my! or hehehe!
The first cross eyed babe one is a winner.

I figured there had to be about a gajillion out takes for every good photo with all those pups.

Hoke said...

Amazing!!! All you need is to put it on a postcard and I could see it framed in your house!!!

euthymic said...

Wow, you sure worked hard to get all those pups to cooperate for the perfect photo. Great job, the pics are amazing. We also like the spontaneity of the "imperfect" ones:)
