Puppies....six weeks old....Cardigan Welsh Corgi's....tons of fun!!

Cardigans come in many different coat colors, and often have blue eyes. They have drop ears until the age of about 6 to 12 weeks. The puppy in front is starting to have one of her ears go up.


The key to taking puppy litter pictures is to take them right when they arrive to the studio, they are a bit scared of the surroundings and stay still. Of course, 5 minutes later I had puppies crawling all over me!!

Thanks for ALL the lovely comments!!!

Ahhh, so that's the secret to getting shots of motionless puppies!!! Will remember that for the future in case I ever need to do it. Thought you might have had to give 'em a little Valium or something ;-)

Your set up is fantastic. Then to have (6) puppies cooperate enough to stay in position and look at the camera is awesome. Must have been a few takes on this one. Truly professional work.

I want them all! What a beautiful shot! Despite the fact that those blue eyes are enchanting, the one with black eyes seems to be the most alert of the bunch. And I agree with the person who mentioned how cute the black and white tippy-toes sticking out of the bucket are! Wish I could see a photo of them crawling over you - just for fun! That must have been priceless!

I didn't realize Corgis could be all white. What darlings!!!! This is just so heart thumping. Congrats.

Congrats on the yellow Jen!

That is so amazing! They had to think they'd died and gone to Heaven when they saw this!

I was going to ask if you're a magician, but then noticed Paul had made a similar comment. Your animal shots are tops. (OK, your other shots aren't bad either!)

Such a cute image. I know this had to be a lot of work to get them in this pose. The blue eyes really standout. Nicely done.

6 posing perfectly. I am so jealous! Oh, I hope there are outtakes with them bouncing around and knocking over the props.

This is precious. Great lighting, love the background. You captured those adorable expressions perfectly. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Well who can give a photo like this a 5, or even a 6, NO what about a 7, don't believe I could, how about an 8, not sure, I think it's worth more than that, a 9, hmmmm maybe, but you know what I'm going to give it 10, for absolute 100% cute factor! All the best!


Ohh and did I mention the eyes, WOW, those eyes!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/29/2013 07:55:40 AM
They don't realize how lucky they are for being born in a good life situation. Some pups don't have that luck. Great tones, sharpness, details and you've made their eyes really pop out :).

Top 3

How on earth did you manage to get 6 puppies still enough for this shot? I commend your talent and whomever wrangled the pups!

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I can't help but look at these adorable puppies and want to pet them. They are so cute and those blue eyes are so lovely. Love the light and the poses of these pups in the baskets and boxes. But it is the puppy in the front basket with the raised ear that keeps drawing my attention to him. He looks like he just cocked his ear to listen to something that is stage right. Excellent pet portrait work on this one.
