One of the few creatures that loves you more than they love themselves.

Tabor said...

You have to tell me. What are your camera settings that you get such rich blacks?

Danielle said...

Your photos of her really bring out the happiness she gives just by being her...she is just gorgeous!!

Linda said...

What a great series of shots! They are so much fun to watch when they play - she is truly gorgeous!

He is absolutely adorable, Daniel, and he looks so happy with his tennis ball!

Such unabashed exuberance! I wish I could work up such enthusiasm and joy over a simple ball.

Beth said...

The series of photos is so cute!

Red said...

I'm sure the puppy is having fun and so is Daniel.
I hate to ask but is this one of those that grow to a tremendous size? I like the giant Shcnauzers and then there's another one that's big black and curly...somekind of mountain dog I think.

Tammy said...

Oh my word, what an absolutely adorable pup!!

Daniel LaFrance said...

@ Red: No... she'll be approximately 20 to 25 lbs when fully grown. I consider her to be a large dog among small dogs.

She is a cross between an American Cocker Spaniel and a Miniature Poodle (both parents are pure breeds).

@ Tabor: ISO 400, f3.5, 1/500 but these setting aren't necessarily ideal for every situation. Natural light, cloudy, light reflection off the snow. Any post processing is limited to my use of Adobe Lightroom. If you rely on post-processing software such as Photoshop you'd want to look at 'levels'. Then there's the camera's sensor and whether you capture JPG or RAW. The latter affords the photographer more latitude in editing/processing your photos.

Molly is just the cutest little thing. How she must make you smile. Adorable. And those are just wonderful shots.
