Shazier is the newest member of my extended family. Named after former Buckeye football player and current Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, he was my sister’s Christmas present. After recently losing her senior heart-dog, her youngest daughter put out feelers for a new puppy and coincidentally found a litter of Lab mixes just down the street! Shazier joined the family shortly before the holiday and settled right on in! He’s a spunky solid little bundle of fuzz and he’s learning the ropes very quickly. Smart, active, and pretty responsive, he was a bit of a challenge in the studio!! We kept the energy level low and calm and let him discover the space for himself. He’s very food motivated so we managed to get him on the backdrop for a few shots. Thankfully I have fast firing strobes so he didn’t have to sit still too long!!
