Focus!

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cam.  Thank you for all the kind remarks on my portrait work for Serene Sunday.  Like many of you, I am a professional, so while I might make it look easy ... there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes.

In order to get photos like those that you saw on Sunday, we have to go through a lot of this:

"I'm not feeling it, Mom."
"What are you two doing?  Is Cam getting treats?"

We all know what I'm doing here!
Maggie had just said, "Booooo!"

She says "boo" a lot.  I think she's trying to "roo" or "woo", but it comes out as "boooo" so far.  Of course, one of her litter-mate sister's names is Boudica and she goes by Boo or BooBoo, so maybe she just likes to talk about her.  I'm not quite sure.  She's still developing her voice.

Anyway, we usually do that for quite a while, then Mom finally caves.

"Oh.  You DO have treats after all?"
"Do I get some, too?"

Mom's working on being able to get both of us in focus ... and we're working on focusing on the mission at hand. If there are treats involved.

The little one still hasn't quite reached pro status yet, but she's learning!

Have a lovely day!

Cammie!

  1. Oh, you will get the hang of the photo shoot quicker than you think! It took me a while too but now all Ma needs to say is "Photo Shoot!" and I come running and posing. BOL

  2. Mom keeps muttering about 'focus' too - we think she must be talking to her camera, but we are totally On Point. Except for when something more interesting is going on... Which is fairly frequently...

  8. We agree - Mom says she probably takes at least 20 photos to get just 1 good one and every time we go adventuring she take 150-200 photos.....thank goodness for continuous burst

  14. Cammie, you are one special lady. You can teach all of us about looking dignified and confident. Just like Queen Elizabeth. Mom says you probably practice walking with a book on your head.

  15. I appreciate all the hard work you have to go through for those incredible portraits. I just hope there are enough treats to equal all the work.
