My Favorite Model

I love how my pup, maQ, helps me practice my photography skills and creativity. He sits, he stands, he turns, he lays down, etc. He is so patient and is always happy to make me happy. He aims to please.

Since I normally post all my photos of maQ on his Instagram account, I thought it'd be nice to share some more recent portraits of my boy on the blog! Autumn in New York brings the most sensational light and I've been using maQ as an inspirational muse! I love these (Canon) portraits of him, they just scream happiness. Don't get me wrong, I adore the graffiti posts and all his goofy cuddly candid shots; I even love the ones I take from my iPhone, but it's nice for a change to pick up a real camera and get some honest photographs of my beloved pet.

Look at him on the go! He even helps me hone in on those action shots!

BAM! Look at the muscle tone on him! Macho man... isn't he in great shape?!

My favorite time of day to shoot is during the golden hour. This takes place right after sunrise or before sunset, the first and last hour of sunlight in the day. This daylight gives photos a redder and softer touch, making any photo extra beautiful and extra spectacular. Isn't my fella so incredibly gorgeous? What soulful eyes! It's undeniable! I have such a majestic creature. :)

I cannot wait to spend my favorite season with you! Thanks boy, for being you and for letting me be me with you! We are such a pair. Everyday I am so grateful to have been blessed with such a wonderful, sweet-loving dog. Just thank you. Thank you, love.

Here's my goofball starting off his Friday right! Time to dirty up the mouth and get down on some serious action! Play! Play! Play! And then, more play! Ha ha!

Until next time, have a nice weekend!

Love & xx's,

maQ + suz
