KRISTY TRICK | PHOTOGRAPHER | CRAZY DOG LADY
One day, Heidi ventured across a busy street to play with the neighborhood kids on the other side. A car, one of many, nearly hit her as she didn't realize the danger she was in. The cars would honk and Heidi, being a fierce girl who was bred to chase vermin, she would bark back at them as if to say "Can't you see I'm walking here? My legs are a bit short, so give me a minute". She was not only cute, but she stood her ground. And my daughter fell in love with her.
Asking her owners if they knew that Heidi was constantly out and about, risking her life to cross the street to play with the kids. They said they were unable to keep her from digging out of their yard, so if we wanted to keep her, we could. And that's how a little red, short-haired, miniature dachshund named Heidi became a part of our family.
Many photos of Heidi and my daughter soon followed. Heidi in pearls. Heidi in a hot pink feather boa. Heidi in a bicycle basket. She was the joy and sunshine every little girl dreams of in a best friend. All 10 lbs of her.
Those photos bring us so many great memories, but they are small (4x6), some are old & crinkled, some out of focus, some have glowing eyes, many with ugly, dated carpet. And who knows where those photo negatives are. I only wish today that I had a beautiful image of her to display in our home. One that reflected her hilarious spirit, her zest for life, her adorable smile and huge personality all rolled into one compact little dog. She was a part of our family for many, many years and to this day, we still talk about her and her goofy antics.
This is why I want to be your dog photographer. To explore with them in their favorite environment, capturing their unique personalities in which to create beautiful, custom artwork so you have something in which to enjoy every day, and later cherish, long after their dog's tails have propelled them through heaven's gates. I'd love to create something special for you of your dogs. Please contact me and let's chat!
