Mine on Monday {Kalamazoo Child Photographer}

I haven’t done a Mine on Monday post in awhile.  The weather was so beautiful this weekend in southwestern Michigan and we took our pup for a family hike both mornings.  I took my camera in hopes of a good shot of Lexi since she has grown so much since my last post of her.  Well needless to say, I think pet photographers are super heroes.   She is so busy, fast, and BLACK that I have such a hard time photographing her – sometimes my camera just can’t find focus since there isn’t any contrast on her at all and since she usually only gives my 0.25 seconds before running off…I am not fast enough with manual focus.  Oh and add it the fact that anytime I point the camera in her direction she thinks that is a cue to run as fast as she can towards me, especially since I usually try to shoot her down on her level.  It’s an invitation to play.  Today I will try to bribe her with hot dogs and see if I can get some eye contact.

Added bonus of having my camera is the girls both wanted their photo taken.  I love this location…I will have to take them back sometime with a session in mind.

    Shooting pets is tough! And I think black ones are the worst. As much as I love my two black cats, I can’t catch focus on anything but their eyes, and you are totally right that if I get down on their level and get them to look at me, they are heading straight for me!!
