Pug mania!

I’m getting to know some of the sweet photography spots in my forest by now. It’s a really cool place, within 30 minutes of walking I have some very different areas. Today, I worked with a special model.

Meet Johnny Pug – the coolest Pug in the forest!

his is about 20 meters from the main road. Already the forest is all around us, no sight of any cars. No sight of anything man made in fact…(except the pathway).

A bit further is the deforestation site I’ve used before. At the edge of it, the stones are covered in moss.

Perfect lookout place for a small dog!

At the end of the site, the pathway divides in two. We started to the right.

After a short bit, there grows a lot of these plants – perfect as a shelter for a pug!

A bit of play and fun with Mom on the way.

Johny here is ninja-trained. Do not try this with an untrained dog.

And sometimes not all lights are on Johnny…His human “brother” is just as cute!

Not only lions live in the high grass that we found about ten minutes later.

And to top it all off: heather! Loads and loads of heather!

“Luckily I’m secure in my manlihood. I can pose with pink flowers just as good as any bitch!”

I feel like I’ve moved to photo paradise… 😀

Puppy in Dystopia

I would never place a puppy in an unfriendly environment for real. But I had this idea of a puppy, all alone in a world gone bad, alone with just a toy.

This is my first session with a customer in “my” forest. We went to a deforestation five minutes into the forest, and just let the puppy loose to follow his own desires (of course, Mom is nearby all the time!). It worked like a charm.

Of course, we also did some “normal” portraits!

It’s awesome to have these two environments literally side by side…

Yes, there is a stick flying through the air. We were trying to get him to look up. Well…

Puppies grow up too fast. Totoro will never be nine weeks again. These photos are precious, they freeze time and create memories. And he had a GREAT time!
