Silhouette Sunset Sessions: a Fine Art Pawtrait Session Option

“To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”

Those are the words of Milan Kundera and the inspiration behind my Silhouette Sunset Sessions. Tranquil, connected, colorful, simply paradise.

My goal: to create a vibrant, dreamy, and intimate experience in pet portraits. My models: Bailey, a nine-month-old golden retriever and her mama Lauren who met me late afternoon in early November at Mingo Creek Park, and wow–did we work some magic!

True or false: We actually had a sunset. Give up? That’s a big fat nope, and I knew it’d be a slim chance given the month’s super dreary and wet weather. So, are you curious how we ended up with these stunning hues? Check out this comparison to see what we had to work with versus what we ended up with.

Also, would you believe Bailey was leashed during her entire session? Bet I fooled you, didn’t I? See how a long lead allowed her the freedom to play and run while keeping her safe and in the area I needed her to remain to produce her silhouette.
