Posh Pets clients are truly dedicated to getting beautiful images. I think Afarin’s first words to me were, “I’d really like to have a photography session amongst the cherry blossoms in High Park.” At least those were the first words I completely processed and, with them, two things crossed my mind: One, the trees were already in full bloom which meant we had a total of about 48 hours to still catch them at their peak. And, two, the park is completely crawling with people that time of year because they too, want to see the blooms at peak. So, getting images without hordes of people in the background can be a formidable challenge.

I took a deep breath and asked her if she was serious. Yes. Yes, she was.

So, we went into super-hero mode and planned the entire session right at that moment (a 7-month old Chow puppy and a 7-year old toy Pomeranian), ensured that we could both move a few prior commitments around and agreed to meet at 6:45 a.m. the following morning. Starting a session at that time of the morning sounds a bit crazy, but it meant that there were less people (although surprisingly, there were quite a few). And, the light was gorgeous.

That morning I met Bijou and Yoshi and fell in love instantly. Don’t let the size of a toy pomeranian fool you – Bijou is quite firmly the ‘girl boss’ of this duo. Yoshi may be 10 times her size and full of drooling, puppy silliness, but Bijou was always waiting patiently for him to realize that photography sessions are serious business. She came dressed in pearls and there was no way she was going home without beautiful images. I’m very happy to say that that is exactly what Bijou got. Here’s a sampling of the some of the images we created that morning…

No trip to High Park is complete without photograph by the Magnolia tree. With the little princess herself, of course.

High Park has tons of locations to explore, but this was special to Afarin. That amazing golden morning light is only available to those who wake up early.

We were literally stopped everywhere we went because of this good-looking brother and sister pair…

And finally, we ended up in front of one of the most iconic skylines in the world.

I loved this session and how it came together! And Afarin was thrilled (you can read her review here).
