What do you get when you cross a teddy bear with a dog? A Shiba Inu named Gus! I’ve known this breed to be stoic but often standoffish. Therefore, I was curious to see how a dog photography session with a Shiba Inu would roll. Well, let me tell you, A + on stoic! However, Gus was not standoffish in the least. He stole my heart, and I was all smiles during this recent pet session.
A Shiba Inu with Style
Gus has style in spades! Pretty much anytime he stopped moving, he was posing. I don’t think Gus had a “bad” side. Left side, ride sight, sitting, or laying down, he really rocked it. It was quite evident this guy was enjoying being the center of attention.
Spokane Fall Dog Photography
Fall is an excellent time of year for family photos. I see the local parks swarming with photographers and families dressed in their best. However, when was the last time you thought about getting dog photos done in the fall?
Fall is a fantastic time for pets too! Dogs love to play in the leaves as much as any other child, and it makes for some pretty magical shots. Bonus, fall colors complement any color dog—an instant boost to your pictures to put your pup on a blanket of leaves.
Dog Photography on the Move
Gus was on the move during our session! Chasing the ball, running down the trail, tromping in leaves, and hiking with his people all over the park happened that day. Therefore, I’d imagine he slept pretty well that night. Truthfully, I was a little exhausted myself keeping up with this handsome guy.
When I discuss pet photos with clients, I suggest including a walk or hike with every photo session. Why? Because once a dog gets on the move, smells all the smells, and marks a few trees, they relax and settle into the session.
I had a great time capturing some ‘Fur’ ever images at a dog photography session for a Shiba Inu named Gus. Life goes fast, a dog’s life goes faster. Remember to take the pictures today you’ll want to have tomorrow.
