Murphy Photos

In December our local pet store had a photo opportunity where for a donation to Canines for Cancer, an amazing photographer would take pictures and you would get a digital image. I signed Murphy up because I love this photographer's work but her prices are pretty high to do a shoot. Unfortunately, the time of Murphy's appointment conflicted with my daughter's dance competition. So I had to rely on my husband to take Murphy to the picture. I really wanted a beautiful shot of Murphy looking all nice and groomed. I brushed him out before I left and gave my husband a detailed lesson on combing out his face right before the pictures (Murphy's hair tends to get messy real easy). My husband texted me that the picture went well, so I was anxiously awaiting the images via email. Here they are -

Murphy was not how I pictured him to be and at first I was bummed. I wanted a nicely groomed picture. But then I realized that this is Murphy, my happy crazy wild little man and I love them.

Oh, and my husband will not be taking Murphy for any more photo sessions without me

Murphy looks wonderful - I would love to do this with Henry but really need to keep an eye out for photos, and get a day where his coat looks coiffed yet natural.
Enjoy this photo!

Yes, we have the "serious pose" and the "I will do anything for a treat" pose

I should try to save up and have Julie do a full shoot with Murphy and the whole family. She does amazing work.

Thanks. Even though Murphy was not as "tidy" as I like, Perry did a good job getting him down there on time.
