The Bugs.

I am so glad it's Friday! This week has just flown by with my artwork and the summer is just zipping by.  I think the hubs and I are going on a little road trip over the weekend.  We plan on finding some sunshine, playing some outdoor games, and  doing some outside painting. :)
My little bugs had their beauty treatments this week which included a bubble bath, and a little mani/pedi.  They love every second of the attention and can't wait for their next day at the spa. The spa being the bathtub. They insisted on doing a photo shoot to show off how gorgeous they look.   The bugs favorite thing in the whole wide world other then eat/sleep/poo is going outside! It's like Christmas and the greatest thing ever!  They wouldn't sit still until we went inside! I think the best advice someone gave me when shooting photos of pets- is get on their level and be patient.  I am still working on my action packed photography skills. :)
What are you up to this weekend?!

Puppies!

It's going to be scorching hot here this weekend so my goal is to try and stay cool. HAHA.


My mom says Oregon is like 60 degrees right now?! I'm so jealous. Have a good weekend!

I love the puppies! And that's a great tip about getting pictures of them - I need to test that on my two rug-rats. Looks like they are so happy - which I'm sure makes you happy.

This weekend is low key only because I'm about to go on vacation and I need to do things like pack and not spend money.

Your dogs are adorable! What kind of camera do you use? Try a faster shutter speed or the "kids & pets" setting.

Dogs look so hilariously crazed in pictures when they're outside! They're having the time of their lives.

punkychewster said...

shall try out your advice on puppy/pet photo taking. except one of my pooches is scared of the camera, and the other just can't be bothered to look cute. :(

Erica Leigh said...

bobbi said...

They look happy. I can see why! I would be running wild like that too if I had someone to give me treatments!
My cats love to be brushed. When I open the box where all their beauty products are they all come and sit around me waiting for their turn to be brushed...

Mayavienn said...

Awww your babies are so sweet! Hope you all have a great weekend! We are headed for Austin, Texas for the weekend!

Brandi {not your average ordinary} said...

Your pups are so adorable -- and these photos are great. I think getting down on the same level as animals is an excellent photography tip. I'll remember to use that one more in the future.

jen said...

Love your pugs. Wish we had a dog, but not too keen on the whole picking up the poop thing!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your bat mascara comment made me laugh out loud!

Jenny Taylor said...

Ohh my goodness they're so cute!

I have no real plans for this weekend except relax and maybe get some sewing done.


Also--in response to your comment about Portland vs. Austin-- the one thing that is definitely better about Portland is the weather. I've been to Portland and Austin during the month of September and I was miserable in Austin. It's scorching hot and humid. As soon as I stepped outside I felt like taking a shower. Eww. Portland, however, was refreshing! In fact, I think I wore a sweatshirt while I was there.
