Ever the delightful weirdo, and unlike any dog I’ve known before, Lulu has always adored having her photo taken. The consummate diva, she comes running for the click of the shutter, the clap of a flash bulb. When I’ve finished setting up backdrops or flashes I’ll turn around to find her sitting bang smack in the limelight with a cheeky grin. If asked to move to the periphery while I shoot a client, interjections of indignant barks will punctuate the rest of the shoot until she’s allowed a cameo appearance.
And as for dressing up? I had never dressed a dog in my life before Lulu (I thought the concept ridiculous). So much as drop a tea towel over her as a puppy and she’d run to the nearest mirror to admire her fine self. The hilarious moment she wore a tutu for the first time (approx 1y/o) is documented on video HERE.
With that in mind it’s not hard to believe that I have literally thousands of photos of Lulu. These are a few favourites, both in and out of the studio…
