I originally took this photo in December while practicing with new lighting equipment. I recently rediscovered it in my files and decided to process it… and was quite impressed with Gus’ formal look. I decided to share it on Boxer Fan Club, a Facebook page dedicated to Boxer owners and their Boxer babes. When I last tallied the counts weeks ago, I had over 1700 “likes”, 181 shares, and 61 comments. Far more popular than I thought possible, but Boxer lovers love Boxer lovers!
This made me think of other images I have captured of my four-legged kids as well as other creatures I have encountered since starting my photography journey. I have found I really enjoy capturing animals and nature photos and hope to do more in this area. Enjoy!

|Sadie on that same snowy day…she caught a snowflake!|
|Nora. Same studio set up as with Gus’ photo above.|
|My sweet feline peeking through the grass|
|A toad that ventured into my mowing path, whom I had to save. Loved his colors and decided to grab my camera and force him to model for me. He’s a natural! Look at that pose! 🙂|
|Triple L’s Stallion. Impressive even with muddy legs.|
|My sister’s bunnies. Smooching! Too cute.|
|Was so excited to capture this image. A quick stop to Oakwood Fruit Farm became an opportunity. This is Phil, a pheasant resident of the farm. He positioned himself perfectly under the beautiful blossoms and made my evening superb.|
|Had the honor to photograph this sweet boy recently.|
