Welcome to week 15 of our Professional Pet Photography Blog Circle. This week we are up close and personal with our topic of “Get Close”!
I decided to pull out my Canon 100 mm macro lens this week and work on a few shots with “detail”. I haven’t used it too much over the winter, but I plan to take it out more this spring when my purple sand cherry blossoms show up sometime later this month – they are my favorite flowers to photograph and they make an appearance for a short time every April!
First image is taken Thursday afternoon. This was our warmest day in quite a while and Kota and I just got back from our afternoon walk. Fifty five degrees is a heat wave for her! Tongue out, but happy pooch!
This time of year is lots of shedding! Actually, shedding is a daily thing 🙂 Here is a close up of that thick fur that I pull out in big tufts lol! She has on her pretty colored spring collar!
Another image after our walk:
The last image is taken one morning this past week. I’m obsessed with Kota’s nose! I love the pink that runs down the middle and the little nubbins 🙂

Kota looks so happy🙂. Great photos. Mine seem to be continually shedding too!
Absolutely love the third photo down, and nose photos are always my favorites! Spring shedding has started in earnest here, so I tell people, if they don’t see us for a couple days, we are buried under hair and need rescue.
Great photos especially the last nose shot. Macro lens are a blast to use. Glad you are going to start using it again.
Lots of great detail – love the nose!
Nice sharp close ups.
Woo Close ups for sure, see all Kota’s great colorization in her coat and complexion/skin etc. Cool. And of course her beauty marks 🙂 Sweet collar to boot, we love them, thank you again!
The amount of shedding in my house right now is out of control. My two don’t get the big tufts though but I know lots of dogs that do. Nice job on all of the close ups!
I just love that first image. I saw it on IG this morning and instantly recognized your Kota. 😉
Oh I want your macro lens so badly! Totally jealous!
I’m in love with the nosey pic myself. What a beautiful pink strip down the center.
Hi Darlene and Kota! I hadn’t realized Kota had that stripe!
