Because these pups are ridiculously cute.
Some of you may remember this post a few weeks back; we met Rob and Penny and their beautiful puppies. But we had all the wrong kit. A wide lens and no flash diffuser, the pictures were alright, but I organised a re-shoot with the pooches with the appropriate gear.
And I am oh-so-glad we did.
It has taken me an age to write this blog, so apologies if I am a little sketchy on the details. Rob and Penny bought their beautiful Bichon Frise ‘Bo’ with them over from the UK when they moved here a few years back. They had her bred, and she blessed Barbados with seven of these crazy-cute-canines. They are gorgeous.
Sian and I popped over to Rob and Penny’s a while back to do this shoot, and since then, the pups have all moved on to their own homes. But we got them, all together for about an hour. It was an interesting shoot to say the least.
They say never to work with animals or children. Now, I love working with kids. In fact, it’s one of my favourite parts of the job. I love it when we get a family with nippers. I find children are a lot more natural in front of a camera, and there is nothing better than a natural shot of a child full on belly-laughing in the Bajan sun.
Puppies are, clearly, very different. It is hard to get them where you want them to be – hard to get them to look where you want to, and try as I might, I couldn’t make them laugh.
