It is spring. Kind of spring. It does not feel like spring. It still feels like winter here in Maine. I think that it is going to snow this weekend. It can't snow, I have to go hiking on Sunday and I have a photo session in Ogunquit. It is time for the snow to melt, the weather to warm up. (not to warm, no global warming please) I am ready for photo sessions with out the down jacket, a giant hat, long underwear, boots that could trek across the tundra.... I am ready for short sleeve shirts and jeans.
This was hopefully my last chilly shoot of the year. I photographed Brittany and Tad at Mackworth Island in Falmouth. Yes, it was super cold but they were such champs. We braved the wind, the snow and I stepped into a snow drift that sunk me up to my waist in the snow. My camera survived!
We got to one point in our walk and Tad saw the beach. He bolted with Brittany yelling Noooooooo Taaaaddddddd. Tad decided that he wanted to take a little dip into the ocean. Now when you are photographing a giant fluffy golden doodle and he decided to go for a swim... not good. We finally got him out of the water, he gave a great shake and his fur went back to being fluffy. The shoot went on!
Brittany was super smart and asked for a studio shoot before we went to Mackworth. It was great. My studio was nice and warm and Tad was the best of dogs. We had lots of treats and had a great time.
