Woody has been on my radar since November when we had several sessions get rescheduled due to rain. As excited as I was to photograph him, I totally understood when his dad decided to wait until the Spring to try our shoot for the ump-teenth time. As sad as we were to have missed the last of the Fall colors, this Spring session exploded with vibrancy! It was perfect! Woody's dad wanted a cool, urban vibe and NoDa was the place to be! Woody was a rockstar as he posed throughout the area (as well as attracting a ton of attention)...

It's in the process of being demo'ed but it lasted long enough to serve as the perfect background for this chill guy.On-Location Dog Portrait SessionSkateboarders have taken over this abandoned area and have created their own little skate park. It's complete with pipes, ledges, ramps, and, of course, graffiti. (Sorry if I didn't get the skateboard lingo correct.) ;)Charlotte NC Pet PhotographyBull Terrier on GraffitiIsn't it funny how something so "ugly" can be so perfect?!Charlotte NC Bull Terrier Photo ShootOn-Location Pet Portrait SessionBull Terrier Running with BallNorth Carolina Animal PhotographerI just had to include this last image because it gave me a good chuckle. :)Bull Terrier Running with Ball

Thanks, Woody, for being such a fabulous model and for making my vision a reality! You are seriously one of the coolest dogs out there! :)
