Way back in October, a wonderful young woman (wow, I sound old!) offered to take some photos of my shih tzu, Eugene. If you're a frequent reader of this blog, you may remember him from his favorite's post. Rael, the photographer, took some gorgeous shots of not only Eugene, but our landlord's dog, Moby (Euge's BFF). Unfortunately, in the new year, Eugene and Moby are going to be separated due to his owner moving overseas, so this was a great way to commemorate their friendship. Is it weird that it almost makes me cry? Anyway, Moby loves to ham it up for photoshoots, so he was a bit more ready to pose than Euge.
If you want to check out more of Rael's photos or book a shoot with her, you can go here. There will also be more ways to connect with her at the bottom of the post. She was absolutely excellent with the dogs and captured their personalities so incredibly well. We took the dogs around the neighborhood and they were themselves, and she captured it without being intrusive. I think they liked her! If you're interested in a shoot with her, she is located in Milton Keynes, which is about 35 minutes from Central London on the train. In case you're wondering, she does shoot both animals and people...and will shoot them together!
Eugene had a little eye infection the day of the shoot, but Rael managed to get around that as well.
We always joke that Eugene is the Health and Safety Officer. Here he is telling off Moby for something...
Rael can be contacted on her site RaelPhotography.co.uk, or you can Like her Facebook fan page here (and there you can see lots of really cute animal photos!).
