Snow Day ~ Baurenschmidt Family Sneak PeekPosted on Jan 7, 2013 at 4:11 pm by Liz · No Comments
Happy New Year!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and the happiest of new years! I had a great holiday, spending time with family and relaxing to enjoy the season.
During the holidays, I photographed a very special session. Christine contacted me in October about a holiday session for her family as a Christmas gift. It was supposed to be a surprise to her family, especially to her mother who has always wanted a family portrait that included their very special fur-kid, Xander the giant schnauzer.
At the pet expo this year, Christine’s mom found me and told me how excited she was about the session – Christine had to spill the beans to make sure everyone was available for the session!
The day we had scheduled the session was the BIGGEST snowstorm with swirling winds and crazy amounts of snow falling from the sky. Needless the say we had to reschedule and I think everyone was so pleased we did! The day we actually had the session was freezing cold, but really beautifully sunny – exactly what Christine had wanted – snow and sun!
I had such a great time with this family at the Arboretum and they were such troopers for wading through the HUGE amounts of snow!
Xander is such a wonderful dog.
One of Xander’s favourite things about winter is trying to catch the snow.
He conquered this snow pile.
I thought it would be fun to post an outtake. With dogs (and kids!) sometimes you just can’t keep them in one place! Xander decided to go exploring – can you spot him?
Have a wonderful day,
