Here is a commission I recently did of Summer a beautiful 5 year old Golden Retriever. The challenge for this piece was deciding which photo to use as a reference! I took so many gorgeous shots of her, it was difficult for us to decide on which to use. Summer is incredibly beautiful, mommy had her hair brushed and oh boy she was so soft and elegant. Her hair was the softest hair I have ever touched on a dog. I just wanted to curl up with her and hide in her fluff-ness. She has such a puppy face and still has a puppy character - so cute. As with all my dog portraits, I really enjoyed getting to know Summer through my work, there's a bond that forms that will stay with me forever. Summer's mommy is a doll, very much in love with Summer and a very nice woman to work with. I just love owners who simply adore their pets - there's an instant connection.
Thank you Summer for being a part of my life ;-)
