New Man in the House

This is "Nash", the puppy we're keeping from our litter born early December. He's our newest hopeful, and is the most darling puppy to live with; we think he's quite the cutie! The head-only picture was taken last weekend, and we did the body shots on Saturday. Nash was a very wriggly fellow, and we never did get just one good photo. Chelsea is my right-hand everything, and we've been doing photos together for a long time. It has not been the easiest dog/puppy-related thing that we do. My instructions from the "taking" side of the camera are, apparently, not always clear ("My left, not your left ...!!") and can sometimes result in very animated differences of opinion. We decided to try things another way, and agreed that it worked out really well. We didn't get the exact pictures that I was aiming for, but it was a very acceptable attempt with Chelsea behind the camera and me positioning the puppy. And I have to remind myself from time to time, this blog is supposed to be FUN, and not necessarily perfect; in fact, imperfections are something we can all identify with, and are part of what make us interesting and different. I'm pleased that Chels has discovered a fun side to the picture taking, and I'm glad for the chance to share another interest with my daughter ... as long as I don't take it too seriously :)

I think he looks great! Imperfect is all we ever get even though we strive for perfection. We've learned after many years how to stay married after a photo shoot; something that wasn't a given early on! haha

Well, we ended up with photos that were "more imperfect", but we were more "perfectly happy" with the overall effort, so I guess that's definitely an improvement right there!

Such a pretty boy Brenda....I think you did very well with your pictures considering how young he is...:) We had a phone shoot yesterday too of Tara with her Ch. Babies that gave her ROMC. Turned out ok, but took 5 of us to do them... Hope to have them up on my blog in a day or so.

Nash is really nice. How exciting to have a "hopeful"- I look forward to seeing more pictures as he grows.

My husband *hates* to take pictures with me. He is now in the "avoidance" mode- hence, I haven't had nice pictures taken in just over a year. The best I can do now is my back yard candids. I need to find another "partner" for that activity.

Oh my goodness, Nash is ADORABLE! I just want to reach out and hug him. Look forward to meeting him next time we see you.
