Changing it Up: Portraits of Chloe

Chloe is an anomaly, I suppose.  She's a Goldendoodle, the progeny of a very blonde Golden Retriever named Oliver and a poodle mix named Marg.  And Chloe is black.  She looks much like a Golden Retriever and very little like any kind of poodle.  The most popular Goldendoodles are pale colored and curly--something like large "squishy" teddy bears.  Not Chloe.  It's tricky to include her in a photo because her features disappear.   I did these portraits for Be Still_52 -- "Changing Things Up" from our still life course.  Chloe was in the river, chasing sticks, digging for rocks, loving the water.

What a beautiful dog! I can see where it would be difficult to photograph her, but you did it!
