A mini Schnauzer on the loose in Pittsburgh

For those of you that don't know, I hopped a plane on August 6th and headed east to take part in a 4-day Hair of the Dog pet photography workshop in Pittsburgh with the AWESOME Nicole Begley of Nicole Begley Photography! Such a great experience (more on that in an up and coming blog) :)

On our final day, we headed to the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh where each attendee was paired up with a fur model and their human sidekick for a photo session around The Cathedral of Learning and The Carnegie Library.

Meet Ms. Chiloh (an identical twin to Pawztography's own fur "child", Brimley) …. 

Can you believe this was in the middle of the city?!

We even found some beautiful flowers in the midst of it all!

So many sights and sounds in the city….

Showing off a classic Schnauzer pose … again, can you believe this is smack dab in the middle of the city?!

And one final image, my favorite…. Chiloh acting as keeper/guard dog of The Carnegie Library.

Thank you, again, Nicole for an awesome four days of shadowing and learning and to Chiloh and her human sidekick, Cheryl, for an unforgettable hour of fun in the 'Burgh!
