I posted recently about a program I was doing at the Middle Country Public Library in Centereach, shooting fall festive pet portraits for patrons of the library. It was a great success! Thirty families came down to participate in the event. There were 28 dogs and even 2 ferrets in attendance! Besides a little bit of territory marking, all the animals were on their best behavior and got along really well.
I want to thank every family that came in with their pets.
Because I met so many different pets in one day, there were a lot of firsts for me. I photographed ferrets for the first time, which was fun. I also figured out a technique for shooting a photo of a dog who is deaf (it involves some foot stomping and lots of arm waving!). I also met a few dog breeds I'd never seen before, like pomapoos and cavachons. The library expressed interest in doing another program next year with a winter theme, so I look forward to that! Thanks so much to Sara Fade, the librarian and dog lover who put the program together. Here are a few of the photos I shot at the program. Enjoy!
