Bedecked in Snow: My Dogs Pose Before and After the Blizzard

The day before Blizzard Jonas blew into town, I posed my dogs on the steps of our deck, figuring I might have an opportunity for a Before and After comparison.

To create a good Before and After picture set, the photographer should be in the same position, with the same perspective. And the subjects should be arranged similarly.

Post-blizzard, digging a narrow path through nearly three feet of snow was about all we could manage, and don’t even ask about actually reaching — let alone clearing — the bottom step.

There was no room to sit pretty all lined up on the deck, and the only way I could get an After photo with the same perspective as the Before shot would have been to dig a Susan-sized ditch in a snow pile at the bottom of the stairs. The dogs and I discussed our options over treats.

I think the final result turned out just fine; don’t you?

Plus we got a bonus amusing outtake from the bunch. Can’t ask for more.

Tucker, Lilah and Jasper sit in a narrow snow canyon dug out after Blizzard Jonas.

What’s in the air? Hope it’s not more snow.

Do you ever take photos of your pets for perspective or interest?

    Do you still have snow on the ground? We do almost two weeks later. We don’t like he snow, but we bet the doggies did. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    What a great idea for a before and after photo! You’re got a very cooperative pack there and I bet they all had a great time romping through the snow after the photo shoot!

    I hope spring is in the air and that snow runs back to north pole soon :o)

  4. Cole slipped and that was it. He decided to hold it for the duration. LeeAnna

  5. BOL, where do you live? Here in Minnesota we got dumped on! 🙂

  6. That was a great idea! I’m overwhelmed at the amount of snow – I live in Portugal, where usually doesn’t snow at all, with the exception of one mountain we have.

  7. OMD! That is crazy. I know that I’ve told you before but I’ll tell you again, I cannot imagine that much snow! It’d be such fun to play in at least once. ☺

  8. Now that’s a lot of snow!

    So, who decided the one dog needed to be scrunched into the snowbank and not on the path? Looks a bit like two against one going on to me.

  10. They sure enjoyed the snow!

    Wow! Great before and after pictures. Your cute dogs really seem to enjoy the snow! 🙂

    All of our snow has pretty much melted away!

  12. Wow, that’s a lot of snow! So fun to see the before and after pictures. We don’t have any snow here in IL so it’s fun to see the pictures.

    Good grief, you had to make them a path. What a difference! They look happy, snow or no snow. 🙂
