Sneak Peek: Shelby & Gunther ~ Navarre Pet Photography by Allison Shamrell

This fun session was a first for me in several ways, besides being the first on my calendar for 2012: it was the first time I’d seen a fountain of everlasting energy from something other than a labrador. It was the first time we visited my new favorite location – and I can’t disclose where it is! For clients’ eyes only, haha! But most surprisingly, this was the first time that the family added a new member in-between their pre-session consultation and the actual session! That’s right, the number of animals in this household increased by one over the past week, and they kept it under wraps from me until I arrived to see a tiny black cat in mom Jessica’s arms! Needless to say, it was a wonderful surprise! We were laughing about how Jessica has rescued almost all their pets, and she just “can’t say no” to a dog or cat who needs rescuing. And although it may make for a hectic household, I’m pretty sure the world is a better place for Jessica’s being in it.


So I’m going to do something a bit different with this Sneak Peek. As regular blog followers know, I usually post 3-4 photos of the subject(s) in question. But since this family has twice that many pets, how about one photo per animal? Sound fair? I think so.


We’ll start with the dogs: this is Shelby, the world’s most active 1-year-old standard poodle. She also emanates beauty; I think she’s a contender for most gorgeous dog EVER.


This is Gunter, Jessica’s little sweetheart.


This is Sushi, an old cat that Jessica has owned since her college days. Sushi wasn’t really in the mood to be photographed but I think we got a few cute ones!


These next two are Siamese cats, Simba & Sheba! Stunning creatures – I don’t know if I’ve ever met a Siamese before so it was a real treat to meet two! (“We are Siamese if you please…”) Simba is the one sitting up, and Sheba is the one whose nose I just had to get a close-up of, because it reminds me of a LION!



The Most Photogenic Cat Award goes to Otis. He made himself quite at home on the dining room table.


And last but not least, this is the newest addition, Ruby! She actually only has three legs – her from left one is missing – but she was in such a playful mood it couldn’t have mattered less. Here she is sandwiched between a chair back and its cushion, trying to get at me and my camera.


Jessica and Jon, I hope you had a great time on Saturday! Your photogenic animals have given me plenty of work in the meantime. See you soon!
