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)…
Because what cool guy doesn’t
pose on a keg??
Woody’s dad loves fish so we were stoked to find this cool mural!
This was when I discovered the power of the tennis ball. It’s Woody’s kryptonite.
Hehe…I love that the dog in the mural is checking us out…
Woody got a little overstimulated with all of the action going on around NoDa so we snuck away to a secret little place I had scouted earlier. It’s in the process of being demo’ed but it lasted long enough to serve as the perfect background for this chill guy.
Skateboarders 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.) ;)
Isn’t it funny how something so “ugly” can be so perfect?!
I just had to include this last image because it gave me a good chuckle. :)
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! :)
