Project 52 Week 52: Favorite Things

Week 52 or our Pet Photography Blog Circle!  Wow!  The year 2017 just flew by!

This week’s post is titled “Favorite Things” – great way to end the year!  I thought I’d share a few “random” favorite things of mine.

  1.  SMILES and HAPPINESS!  This is handsome Dorian who I photographed this month.  He is smiling in every picture!  We did a photo session in his backyard so he was super comfortable and had the best time!

2. Christmas combined with a dog that smiles….and add in some bokeh holiday lights!!!  I love the month of December.  I love decorating for the holidays – putting ornaments on the tree along with decorating cookies!  It really is the most wonderful time of the year!  I also admit to being a serious “bokeh lover”.  This was taken with my 100mm lens – it’s not my “favorite” lens as it doesn’t focus as well as my others, but in the house i gave it try since I wanted to shoot around f/2.2 and I don’t have enough space to use my 135mm or 200mm .

3. SNOW covered branches on Christmas Day combined with my favorite 135 mmm lens!  These 2 are definitely a favorite of mine!  This was taken later in the day with the sun front lighting Kota.  Love the yellows through the trees and I always wish the snow stayed on the branches for days.  There is nothing like a white Christmas!  That morning my husband and I enjoyed a hike on the trails behind our house with Kota.  It was so peaceful.

4.  Gifts of art from images combined with Acrylic blocks – my favorite product!  This is Buddy.  He is my in-laws new rescue, a Swiss Mountain Dog Mix.  I photographed him the beginning of this month on Squam Lake in Holderness, NH.  They are in the process of choosing some artwork and this was a holiday gift to them 🙂

  1. Great examples of favorite things, Darlene! I am looking into a 135mm lens this year. Also, where do you order your acrylic blocks from? Love it.

    1. Thanks, Elaine! The 135mm lens is definitely my favorite – you will love it! Highly recommend! I get my acrylics from WhiteWall in Germany – LOVE them! They even ship much faster than from Bay on the west coast 🙂

  2. So many to choose from – great pictures, what a year with many successes w/ur photography business! Nice work – more to come in 2018
