Crystal & Boys | Blanding, UT Photography
This family! These boys are outdoors, houndsmen kind of guys, that do awesome things but, still like their mom. I love that. And I loved that they will take a day off of hunting just to take pictures with her. It gives me such hope for my own small humans.
We clearly took these photos back in the fall but, we just finalized the images so I can finally show you. I am so excited. Autumn is by far my favorite time of year so I am thrilled to show fall pictures in the middle of this dry winter. The mountains here are one of my very favorite things about Blanding, UT photography. They are always changing and always beautiful so, it makes my job so much easier. I think I say that all the time but, I guess, I just really want to make sure you guys understand how much I love the outside here.
Ridge | Legendary Senior 2018
After we took some family photos Ridge hung back for a few more senior photos. As you might remember, if you are really good at stalking us online, we also took some photos of Ridge at the golf course near the end of the summer. Well, he wanted to get some with his hounds too. So, we played with his puppies and took some photos.
Now, some of you might know this but, my dad has close to twenty hound dogs. Really. That is a real thing. He quite literally has nearly twenty dogs. Occasionally, he has more than twenty.
And I hate them. I hate them all. Now, I don’t hate animals, I love an adorable puppy but, a hound dog is not an adorable puppy. They bark all the time. They like to bay at everything. My dad has one dog name Bill, or Bob, or Joe or something (I try not to make friends) he got fixed and since that day has barked none stop as his missing parts. Head through the legs, barking, all the time. He was fixed, TWO years ago!
Hound dogs are loud, and they not very cuddly or loyal. They try to trick you when they are puppies with their big, flappy, adorable ears and their doe eyes. But, don’t let them deceive you. They are are heartless things that chew up your shoes, and try to eat your toes, tree your children on chais, and don’t even love you when they grow up.
So, when Ridge asked me if his puppy was the cutest hound dog I have ever seen I had to say, no. Because hound dogs don’t love you back. They just bark until you are in the fetal position – sobbing. But, that doesn’t mean they don’t make cute additions to senior photos.
