Shizu Coco – Christmas photo shoot / CT pet photographer

December 3, 2010

Today I met adorable Shizu Coco for a christmas photo shoot.

Here is his story: His owner found Coco running on the streets and when no one claimed this cute puppy, she went ahead and adopted him. This seems as if it was meant to be :)

And here are the photos from todays session:

Photo 1: Coco on the beach. I really like the natural color scheme in this one – with all the beige, brown and golden tones.

Photo 2: Since Shizu Coco did not like to sit, we added the red bucket to the picture. Look at these big round eyes!

Photo 2b: These motives are great to play with saturation – leave the red but reduce all other colors – the result looks like an old time photograph, doesn’t it?

Photo 3: Close up

Photo 4: The close up looks great in black and white, too.

Photo 5: The landscape format gives more space to add text for a christmas card. And the golden star adds to the christmas theme.
