One beautiful Sunday morning, we set out to Burlington to meet Toby and Caleb. We had been warned by his humans that Toby, the 10 year old husky, could be a “little stubborn” and they were not sure how the session would go. They needn’t have worried. First of all, Tobey had obviously taken his custom portrait session seriously by going out and getting himself groomed and his stunning coat blown out (Okay, maybe his humans had helped a little with this). Secondly, he knew he was a bit of a celebrity and his very walk showed it. Strangers literally stopped us mid-shoot to remark on his coat and that he looked so much younger than his 10 years.
And then there was the gentle Caleb, an 11 year old Rottweiler mix. She is very attached to her mom which can sometimes present some challenges. But in this case, it just meant that she looked wherever her mom was. That is a photographer’s dream! Caleb also loves, loves, loves the water! LaSalle Park, where we had our session, is home to a pretty marina. A number of times during the session Caleb would look longingly at the water and whine to go in. We had already discussed the water and her mom really wanted water pictures of her swimming, so we promised we would let her in – once the “dry land” photos were done. And so Caleb tried her best to be patient and gave us beautiful images. Once we said she could go in the water though – she was off!
So, here are some of our favourite images of our session that day.
Toby and Caleb – you were an absolute joy to meet and to photograph! You are both quite obviously loved by your mom and dad, so enjoy that to the full – we know that the images we captured will be cherished for years to come!
