As most of you may know, Chihuahuas can be a little shy and tend to get nervous around new people and new big, black objects looking at them (aka, the camera). When I first met Lola and Charo, I took the safe approach and greeted them with treats and stayed down on their level. Charo, the long-haired fuzzy one of the pair, instantly was a fan! Anyone that gave her attention was a-ok in her book. Lola was a little more timid but I could tell she would eventually come out of her shell. As a matter of fact, I was 99% sure that she would be a camera ham by the end. (Spoiler alert! I was right!)
I introduce Charo…
Charo instantly fell into her top model ways. I’m pretty sure she’s done this before. ;) She was completely ready to show off her “frizzy cotton ball” look!
Lola hung back for a while but really started to come out of her shell once we reached the beach at Lake Norman.
She was pretty interested in the water and even got her toes a little wet at one point!
The sisters had a blast running around on the sand!
Right about this time, Lola really started to steal the show. She totally “got it” and was ready to work it!
Lola’s like, “yeah, I got this!”
When we walked out to the peninsula, we were greeted with the most amazing sunset! Most of the session was shot with cloudy skies – something I normally avoid. However, they worked in our favor since we wanted to capture the background of the lake. As the clouds parted, the sky turned the most gorgeous shades of orange, pink, and purple!
And the family enjoying the lovely views…
I heart this sweet family and I hope you enjoyed their sneak peek!
