Buford & Rio ~ {Pensacola, FL Pet Photography by Allison Shamrell}

After a very busy weekend, I finally have time to post Buford & Rio’s videos! (If the videos don’t load, just refresh the page.)

I absolutely loved this shoot. It was SO much fun. Lori, their mom, let me get creative, which is something that not all pet owners are usually up for, so I definitely appreciated the freedom. And the backgrounds we casually chose during the shoot became some of her (and my) favorite shots from the entire session! So here’s to working with people who have a similar creative vision to your own- the end result is always amazing.

The first video is from the outdoor shoot, and I posted a few extra pictures from that part of the session for you to see as well. The next video is all studio work, since we took some time there as well. In fact, we took enough time for both dogs to actually fall asleep! We were in the middle of re-creating the photo I took of the (famous) golden retrievers Riley & Zoe, and Buford suddenly shut his eyes- so of course, we waited until Rio did the same! So it’s a little twist on that original photo you might fund amusing. I’ve also posted that photo by itself below.

Here are the photos by themselves. The first two are in front of Seville- it hardly gets more classic Pensacola than that!

Then we went to the steps of the art museum…

And a completely random red wall was our favorite place!

I applied a grainy, old-film-type effect to this one. Do you like it better than the original (above)?

These two old doors were just begging to have two dogs in front of them!

And since all that posing was so exhausting to these poor fellas…

Love it! :)  Zoe & Riley- eat your heart out!

Anyways, I also wanted to include the storyboards I proposed from these images. These are two examples of what to expect when I design storyboards.

Thanks again for a great shoot, Lori- enjoy your storyboards!

    I see another order in my future! These are awesome!

  2. […] up with the words to write for this blog post. Rio might be a familiar face to many of you, since I photographed him and his brother, Buford, back in January of this year. Buford was 14 years old at the time (if my memory serves […]
