Still, this year's Christmas card photo-shoot was extra fun for a two reasons: 1) I got to trash the house (before putting it back together) and "blame" it on the dog and 2) Jan got to see just how good Bella is at modeling for me these days.
Usually Bella and I go off somewhere to do our photo sessions. I'm not sure why (probably the shock and horror at seeing what our living room looked like pre-dog) but Jan decided to hang around this time. I put him to work being 'the treat guy'. That definitely helped me out because it allowed me to get some shots of Bella where she's not looking right at me (a photography hazard of teaching the "look" command.)
When we wrapped the shoot and I was cleaning up, I overheard Jan cooing and coddling our little super model sounding rather amazed at just how good she was when asked to stay, look, and pose.
He was impressed and I was proud.
Still, I did find a few outtakes of Bella not looking her most lovely and elegant. Enjoy!
|You're going to blame this mess on me, aren't you?|
Yes, yes, that's very funny. Blame the dog. Har har har.
|I can't see you.|
|Maybe if I look drunk you'll stop doing this to me.|
|Is this the pose you want, Daddy?|
Am I doing it right?
Can I have that treat now?
|Is that tree going to land on my head?|
|I'm not sure this one really qualifies as an outtake. Still, I wanted to include it because she's just|
so. darn. cute.
