Keeping Up With Liberty and Cissy

This little puppy is growing exponentially.  It was interesting to see the changes in her personality between this photo shoot (taken at 4 months of age) and the last (taken at 8 weeks of age).  As a carefree, eight-week-old puppy, she did not question anything that was going on around her. Our most-recent interaction this past weekend was an entirely different experience!  The previously easy-to-photograph puppy has suddenly decided she is camera shy and would have nothing to do with me or my camera!  

In the end, we negotiated a compromise:  I used my 70-200mm zoom lens allowing me to sit a respectable distance away so as not to spook her, and she, in turn, agreed to be cute and silly from afar.
