Indoor Photo Shoot

Hello, everyone, it's me, Cammie.  I hope you enjoyed seeing our Group Christmas Portraits, Take One and Take Two.  Maggie, Zim, and I are happy to share the process with you - perhaps our experience will give you some good ideas!

In Mom's defense, it is harder to get us to cooperate outside; there are so many interesting distractions out there and sometimes all the treats in the world just aren't enough to hold our attention!  Inside, it's a whole new ballgame.  Let's look at a recent group sitting. You'll see how much simpler it is!

We had all just gone outside and were waiting for our treats.  That's usually when Mom tries for a photo.

"Maggie!  Zim!  Mom has treats!"
"I can smell my Stinky Goodness from here!"
"Are you sure?  I was going to run up the stairs and do zoomies!"

"She has Fruitables for us, Maggie.  Look at the camera!"
Stinky!  Stinky Goodness!  Stinkiest treats in the land! ♫"
"Oooh, it's the pumpkin/blueberry ones!"

See?  Piece of cake!  We all look perfect, don't you think?

"Wait.  I think Mom's out of ammo. "
 "Maggie, you're in the front row.  Does she have any more?"
"I don't think so, you guys."

Note Maggie's Harp Seal Look.  Honestly!  You'd think Mom would run into the kitchen and re-load, wouldn't you?

"No more pictures!"
"I'm outta here!"
"You guys, I have cookie crumbs stuck in my throat.  GAK!!!"

Well, anyway ... she got a GREAT photo of us in the house!  And if Mom had only put up some Christmas decorations in the foyer (something about helping someone avoid temptation ... you know who I mean) then we'd have the perfect Christmas portrait.  So in actuality, we upheld our part of the bargain, but Mom didn't pull through with hers.

I hope you all have a lovely week.  Apparently there will be another outdoor photo shoot coming up.  Mom might want to get some really special treats lined up this time.



  1. Nice work! We weren't sure it was possible to actually have three huskies sit together and almost look at the camera in unison, but Mom is saying something about an infinite number of monkeys and the works of Shakespeare. We have No Idea what she is talking about (as usual), so we'll just say the three of you look fabulous!

  8. great pictures. mom said she wasn't about to fall for Maggie's harp seal impersonation, but the look from Zim made her want to go looking for treats :)

  9. Are you saying that aside from the Zim Detection Device on the Christmas tree, you also need Maggie Detection Devices around the house?

  10. The photos are getting a whole lot better, guys, but your mom simply can't run out of treats!

    Love ya lots♥
