Professional Photography

Hi everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your summer. We had some really hot days about a week ago but now we are back to cool and cloudy. I always feel that summer ends here with an obvious sign. This is the week we will probably start to wind up the warm days.

We have been busy with Charlie and her agility trials for the past few weekends. She is off with Grandma this weekend in Sequim, WA for a three day trial. Since hubby and I both work we let Charlie go on her own. We miss her terribly and will go to the trial tomorrow for the final runs and to pick up our little girl. Ollie seems lost without her and the house is so quiet. Without puggy wrestling matches and races, it's just lonely.

We do have some lovely new photos to look at and that helps! There is usually a professional photographer at the agility trials. Most of them have websites where we can preview the shots of our doggie. Lately the photographers have taken some really nice shots of Charlie and we have made some purchases.

These photos were taken on a very warm day and the sun was shining brightly. The photographer is Ken Kennedy. He has a lovely website with some great animal photos. We really love how vibrant these photos are. The expressions on Charlie's face are wonderful, she really looks like she is having a great time running around the field.

Please visit Ken's website Ken Kennedy Photography to see more beautiful dog photos.

The other photo we recently purchased has not arrived at home yet. I will give you a link to our cute "glamour" shot of Charlie. Nina S. Photography The action shots are not as good as Ken's because we were in a dark barn and flash photography is not allowed.

We went out to Michael's today and bought picture frames for our lovely photos and the pastel drawings I showed you in a previous post. Hubby has already framed the two pastels and they look fabulous! We selected a shadow box style frame. It's rectangular shape allowed us to put the drawings side by side. It is just perfect!

I hope you enjoyed these great photos. I really love them and they will be a great memory for us all when Charlie gets a little too old for agility.

hugs to you all!
