Dog Photographer | Grande Prairie, Beaverlodge & areas, Alberta


Fun in the sun! I’ve been having as much fun as Austin here who is full of glee as he rolls in the snow. I’ve been taking advantage of my extra time to take photographs for the sheer pleasure of taking photographs. I’ve been playing around with abstracts, shadows and curves. The recent hoar frost was full of photographic opportunities. I’ll likely share a few of my fun shots in another post this week. For now, here is a pair of photos of my cooperative office assistants, Austin (above) and Pearl (below).

How are you enjoying yourself and playing and having fun these days?

I love these images, Diane! The portrait of Pearl is especially wonderful. There’s a lot going on behind those eyes. Brilliant work!

These are such beautiful portraits. I believe I’d have to frame that bottom one if it were my dog.

Oh Diane, your dogs are BEAUTIFUL!!!! Austin looks so happy in the snow, and check out that look on Pearl’s face ๐Ÿ™‚

I was hoping do get back to cross-country skiing after all the snow that was forecast for this week — except the snow keeps turning into rain, so everything is just a wet slushy mess outside ๐Ÿ™ Probably won’t even get to the dog park for our usual Friday walk. But I’m having fun watching lots of the Olympics every day — GO CANADA!!!

They are quite a pair! The action shot in the snow is full of vigor, action and “fun.”
Pearl is so coy and appealing. fine images on both fronts!

Oh my goodness – does it get any sweeter than this? These dogs are glowing with happiness in your photos – a combination of their personalities and your magic with the lens and light. Fabulous!
