Photographing ‘dogs with hands’ has been a whimsical fixture on my inspo List, and this week provided the perfect chance to bring it to life. With time constraints and only my husband Ken's hands available, he graciously volunteered to assist. 🙌🏻 Setting the stage involved some impromptu furniture rearranging and cushioning for Ken's comfort, turning our kitchen into a makeshift studio. Inviting our pup, Queso, to the table seemed like a sure win, given his penchant for lurking beneath it during meals, hopeful for tasty accidents. 😋 However, his reaction was more perplexed than I anticipated. Nonetheless, being the good boy he is, he obliged. Then things got even weirder for Queso when Dad crouched behind him and played with his head. LOL. While Queso adores attention and treats, this whole affair seemed a tad peculiar to him especially as I struggled to direct the positioning of Ken's hands. Fortunately for both Queso AND Ken, the session was brief, resulting in some delightful captures.
