Shiny New Year

Happy New Year and we are off to a brand new start with our 52 Week Pet Photography Blog circle! The first topic of the year is “Shiny” .

I wasn’t sure what to do for this topic. I thought of my dog, Kota, posing with some holiday gifts that were “new and shiny”. I also considered posing her next to my brand new tires that I had put on my Ford Escape – Happy New Year to me – haha! I decided to take her outside in the morning and see what would work for this blog post. Even though we haven’t had much snow this winter, we have had some beautiful golden light – perfect for “sun – SHINE”! The first image shows off some of that beautiful shining winter light just after sunrise.

As I studied Kota, I noticed her amber eyes with a bit of glisten, along with her “winter nose” with that little bit of pink shining.

And guess what else seemed to be catching some light? Kota’s purple id tag attached to her fox collar. Kota has a nice collection of collars and they all fit her personality just perfect!

And one more image that I shared on instagram this week: Kota’s “shining” moment of giving her dad a paw! Look at the way she looks at her dad with those eyes and that smile – two peas in a pod!
