People were lined up outside the Larimer Lounge waiting for their nights to begin and I was standing around outside waiting to meet a dog. Not just any dog, Franklin the Great Dane. As Franklin approached with his dad, I couldn’t get over how beautiful and graceful Franklin is. He’s steady in his walk and everyone turned to stare…. “he’s the size of a horse” people cried out. It’s something Franklin and his dad hear on every walk. People ran over to pet him and ask questions and we walked slowly towards the alley to begin our portrait session.
Franklin’s dad is an artist and he loved the idea of an urban photo session for his furry best friend. They take long walks everyday all over Denver and Franklin is used to people and other dogs so I suggested the alley behind Larimer St in Denver’s RiNo district.
RiNo is a really great location for a pet photography session if your dog is used to walking in busy downtown areas and you love color. It’s not for every dog, there are a lot of distractions. For Franklin it was nothing a few yummy treats couldn’t take care of.
We wondered the alley and found colorful spaces and hidden doorways to take photos in. Franklin had fun doing tricks for treats and getting pet by lots of people walking by. It was a great night for a dog photography session and Franklin was a great model. He’s a sweet soul and I’m happy I got to spend time with him.
Here are a few photos from his session below.
