I had the pleasure of working with a great couple (Matt and Corrie) and their amazingly well-behaved 3 month old lab mix, Trooper.
They chose the location – Freedom Park, in the middle of Charlotte – which couldn’t have been more perfect, even with all the mud. (I looked like a mess when we were done since everyone who has ever done a shoot with me can attest to the fact that I get into my work, including lying in the mud, to get the perfect shot)
After meeting at Starbucks and treating them to some hot beverages, where we bonded over our origins (they’re from upstate NY, we’re from NJ), we headed out for the day to shoot some amazing photos. The stars were aligned for their shoot. We had perfect lighting, perfect weather, albeit a tiny bit cold, though that made for some great color on their faces, perfect location and thy even had the perfect dog.
I played my usual fly-on-the-wall self and followed them around the park.
Trooper must be the most well-behaved 3 month old puppy I have ever met.
In any case, these are just a few samples. I will be adding to this album over the next day or so.
Location: Freedom Park, Charlotte, NC
