Gentle Giant – Geneva

I met this beautiful girl named Geneva, at a portfolio building session I held for senior dogs. She is 10.5 years old and at times during her session, her back legs would become twisted and she would almost fall over. But to her rescue would come her amazing owner who would proceed to lift her back end up, and straighten the legs out.

Although there were lots of photography props and equipment set up throughout the room for her to potentially trip over, she seemed to take her time…maneuvering her awkward legs around all the obstacles. This was just a small part of her sweet personality that I saw throughout our hour together.

About this breed:

The Bernese Mountain Dog breed is one of 4 breeds from the Swiss Alps, officially established in 1907. The name derives from “alpine pasture” and hound/dog, as they accompanied the alpine herders and dairymen. Originally kept as a general farm dog, these gentle giants were used as draft animals, to pull carts.

It was a pleasure to photograph Geneva and to experience this amazing breed up close. Here’s some of my favourite photos from Geneva’s senior dog session.
