NEWPORT – Haines Photography is a business that photographs weddings, and events throughout the entire year, but when business gets slow, that’s when they start getting creative.
Along with weddings and commercial shoots, Haines photography shoots models who come in all shapes and sizes.
Sunday, the Haines had the privilege of working with Jake, a 5 year old Briard. The family pet was enjoying his time, but the Haine’s said they’ve worked with many family pets, from chickens, to horses, to cows, they’ve seen it all. In the case of a Water Buffalo, Doug Haines said “she approached him with a camera and when she did, he started to charge her.”
But every once in a while, they meet special dogs just like Jake. Gini Haines joked that photographing dogs is “easier then kids”!
Using squeaky toys and treats they try to get Jake’s attention. Sometimes it worked, and sometimes it didn’t, but by the end they had the perfect shot.
“We just love him” said Jake’s owner, Linda Hartford.
