Meet Rizza! A beautiful young Belgian Malinois that I had the pleasure of capturing some amazing photos of. I particularly love doing classic portraits of dogs on dark backgrounds like this and using the power of light to emphasize the elegance of our dogs. This portrait of Rizza did not dissappoint and really highlighted those gorgeous amber eyes and that amazing profile that provokes the thoughts of alertness and intensity associated with the breed.

Sometimes we just see the goofy, silly pup in front of us and don’t have the opportunity to really appreciate how truly amazing the architecture of the different dog breeds truly are. During our photo shoot with Rizza, I caught MANY photos of this boy in full goofy mode, with his tongue waggiling back and forth the whole time. I swear, Rizza has the longest tongue I think I have ever seen on a dog! While these were all so fun and fantastic, this picture was unique and provocative and that is the reason why it was a top pick for his mom.

If you want a beautiful portrait of your pet like this, be sure to schedule your next photo shoot with us!
