Well, I've Finally Done It.

I've officially taken the cutest picture of Cedar, ever.



*dies*

Isn't she darling? <3

I spent a good part of the afternoon messing around with the settings on my camera. It was fun and interesting for sure... and I got some pretty good pictures out of it, too :). Cedar is a great subject to photograph... maybe because she's had a camera shoved in her face almost every day for 2 1/2 years? :D

Oh, and she's beautiful, too. That helps <3


If I learned anything today, it's that thus far I certainly haven't been doing my camera justice in any way. Now to get a few better lenses... hmmmmmmmm.

Sometimes I got nice pictures like this...






Sometimes the results were a little less, er, impressive ;)

Of course, no photography session would be complete without a little senseless dog torture. At least, according to Cedar.


Good thing for her, she got plenty of this as payment for her modeling services:


This picture makes me happy, even though it sucks.


Why, you ask? Well, two weeks ago, Cedar wouldn't have set foot anywhere near the tippy board. Now, she runs to a 2 on/2 off position with one command of "spot"... and will rock the board with her front OR back feet. Good girl, Cedar!
