It is Project 52 time again! This week  I have again joined up with other pet photographers from the Beautiful Beasties Network  to collectively challenge ourselves with a weekly assignment.   This week’s topic is 'into the woods.'  Well we have a most beautiful wooded area right by our house.  I photographed 2 year old Trent there last weekend.  His Grandma wanted images of Trent with his buddy Jack.  Jack has watched over Trent since he was born and she wanted an image that captured that relationship. This is Jack and Trent! Little Bailey also came along and worked very hard to keep up with everyone! While Trent's grandma didn't ask to be in any images, I just could not pass up capturing this tender moment! This is a blog circle, meaning at the bottom of each post will be a link to the next photographer's interpretation of this fun theme!  Start with  Denver Pet Photographer, StinkDog

I start with this poster size, super sticky, gridded paper from Post-It.  I get it as Office Max. On one of my own walls, I hang the client's print.  I mark the corners with painters tape. With the print still on the wall, I cover it with the poster sized post-it paper (sometimes you need to overlap paper
