Henri’s mom’s last name is Bean, and I think it is the cutest full name for a dog, so now I just call him ‘Henri Bean’. His mom calls him ‘H’ for short- it’s his movie star title. It’s totally fitting because this boy poses like an old Hollywood film star. 🙂
This is two different shots below, but I just realized it almost looks like it could be the same one. If Henri Bean was a contortionist, lol.
How cute is H?
Henri Bean is just as sweet as he looks. And one of the most well-behaved dogs I have ever worked with.
Color-correcting all of the images above was a challenge (I’d like to use another word here but I’m trying to keep my ‘G’ rating on this blog). The sun was so beautiful, and so low in the sky, and cast this gorgeous intense golden-orange glow on everything it touched. That’s not so great for a dog who already has reddish-orange fur. BUT, I decided to use the light to my advantage for the last few shots. I only wish I had taken more. 🙂
That’s Puget Sound below, the body of water that downtown Seattle sits on. Beyond the sound you see the Olympic Mountain range. Talk about a gorgeous night. I wish everyone reading this could join me for a stroll through the park. It’s breathtaking.
Some of you may wonder if I am tiring of doing shoots at the Olympic Sculpture Park. Not at all! I am acutely aware of the fact that soon that gorgeous golden glow, the bright green grass, the vivid blue skies and white fluffy clouds will be gone. I am milking this summer for all that it’s worth while it’s still here. With such a gorgeous setting just blocks from my studio, and clients wanting to shoot there, as long as the weather holds, it will be near the top of my ‘favorite locations’ list for Seattle dog photography. 🙂
