What I love most about photographing dogs is how instantly it turns me into the most present, joyful version of myself. Dogs bring out the most loving emotions in me and I wholeheartedly enjoy every minute spent capturing their unique selves for it. Fortunately, this joy-igniting effect usually works both ways and I can bring out the same joyfulness in them too. This is Nexie. She is the second dog I have ever photographed in a studio, and this photograph captures the moment when she realized that despite her initial shyness, being in front of a camera might be a fun experience after all.
