I was recently asked by one of my good friends to take a few photos of her cute dachshund puppy, Frankie. At first I thought 'Frankie?! I'd love to!'---But then I quickly realized I didn't have much experience photographing pets. Nonetheless I was up for the challenge, and quickly began to scout inspiration from various sources to help me with the shoot. You cannot exactly tell a pet what to do, let alone pose for a picture...especially if the pet is very excited when interacting with others. Frankie was a little ball of energy! But I knew once he placed his little paw on my hand and dove for a kiss....we were gonna be buddies. He winked his little puppy eyes as if if giving me the go-to "Yea you can take my piccha" line. This little guy had me running up and down the hill, laying on the grass, chasing him in the leaves,---well you get the picture. At home as I anxiously sat with soaked jeans waiting for my photos to upload, all I could do was squeal from cuteness as I sorted through one by one. Through this fun experience I learned that sometimes a different opportunity may come up and you may not know what to do, or where to start. But even so, it is always worth a chance to try. You'll never know what you are capable of if you don't take that first leap. Enjoy!
His "You can take my piccha" wink ;)
