Gertie (again!)

Some of you may recognize Miss Gertie from her super-adorable studio session a couple months ago. Her mom just knew she also wanted to capture her silly lady on-location at her home. We waited until the weather warmed up so we could get Gertie swimming in the pool...her new favorite hobby! After dodging some rain showers, the clouds parted and we had a nice, humid evening poolside. Gertie was excited to see me again (really, she's just excited to see anyone that will play ball with her) and put on her best show. We started off checking out around the backyard before cooling off in the water. :) Charlotte NC Dog PhotographerCharlotte area pet photographerGoofy girl!Outdoor Pet PortraitsHow do I keep Gertie's attention? Pull out a squeaky ball. She's all mine!Charlotte NC Pet PhotographyCharlotte NC Dog PhotographyUh oh! The ball went in the pool! Better put on the lifejacket just to be on the safe side. Gertie won't go in the pool unless... Frenchie Playing in Pool...she has the safety of her pool float to land on first.
