This week's photo theme is water. Lucky enough for me, I recently had a photo session that had several water locations. This session was for a client with two dogs, one a hound mix named Oliver and the other a cattle dog mix named Maggie.
We met at Kent Pond in Vermont. If you've never been there, it's worth the trip.
The session itself had been rescheduled a few times over the summer months because of weather, so I was glad we were finally going to be able to make it happen. The trip is 2.5 hours away from my home, so I was awake early and on the road so we could get some good morning light. The entire drive was a complete fog fest. I was sure I'd arrive at the location only to be socked in with fog. Even as I neared the location, the fog was just not lifting. Just as I drove up to the pond, the fog seemed to clear a bit. It left some beautiful fog on the pond but cleared enough for good visibility. Yay!
This location had the pond itself as well as a river flowing into the pond for a backdrop. The two pup's mom is a dog trainer, so these two were very well behaved. Maggie wasn't too keen on the camera itself but she was still a willing model.
Below are some of the photos with water as a prominent aspect of the photo.
Both dogs are avid hikers (though Oliver doesn't venture too far these days) and have hiked trails all throughout Vermont and NH. They and their mom are active on the Happy Trail Dogs group on Facebook. I hope I was able to capture some special memories of them for their family.

I love the fog!! Beautiful work!
Such great dogs with wonderful character. I loved your photos!
I'm loving the moodiness of the fog hovering over the water. The composition of the dock images is amazing too. Great job.
