Dishing with the Dogs

What’s better than a day at the spa or even just a mani/pedi?  Our four-legged friends have the same idea…ahhhh a bath, a clip and a blow dry!  Here’s a typical day at the Groom Room in Ridgefield, CT.  These images capture some very happy dogs who are truly enjoying the pampering!   As a long time customer of The Groom Room…it was great  “dishing with the dogs” about what kind of pampering goes on in the back room. Canine smiles all around and some were not the least bit camera shy! Thank you Bridget Miller and your wonderful staff for sharing your day and giving me access to some very cool dogs.

Dog Portraits: More than just a Pretty Snout

Dog Portraits: More than just a Pretty Snout

Inspired by this pose, courtesy of my girl Ruby, I set out to begin a series of dog portraits with special emphasis on their “noses” or “snouts” as my husband calls them. After a few photo sessions with my canine friends and “their humans,” I began to see or maybe not see something. As I cropped with the camera and later with the images, it became clear that something was missing.  Capturing images of a nose without eyes, I was truly missing their personality. The spirit, twinkle and even a little attitude, just wasn’t there. So the eyes are back in the picture.  Click here  to look at Dogs Volume I and let me know if you agree. Maybe Volume II will be titled: “Heads or Tails”… check back for more dog photography!    ...
