Photo Session

Yesterday I did a photo session.  I planned it so that I would have the morning light coming in on the Christmas tree — it was a Christmas photo session, of course.  The subject needed to look nice, so I combed her hair.  And she was decked out in her Christmas attire — a Martha Stewart holiday collar which was 50% off at Petsmart this week.  And I had a Santa hat from the year before.

Once I got over the fact that she just wasn’t going to wear the Santa hat, the session went very well.  Meggie patiently posed for numerous shots — and if you know anything about Airedale Terriers, this was akin to a Christmas miracle!  This is my third year for doing a photo of Meggie and this is the first time that I had a selection to choose from for our Christmas cards.  Below is the final version.  The only photoshop-ing was to crop and add a date.  Meggie is an incredibly sweet and kind dog, and I sort of think it comes across in this photo.

Merry Christmas from Lady Margaret of Penleigh House aka Meggie.
