Thankful Thursday: Lucy Photo Fails

Lately, Lucy has become camera shy! I have been trying to take an adorable portrait of her, but as soon as I move the lens to my face, her face is not adorable and she will turn away or walk away from me. This is the sequence that has been happening:

When that did not work with the big camera, I tried using my phone, but I can't control the lighting and they are not candid shots. I had to talk outrageous baby talk to her to keep a semblance of happiness on her face, and that still did not work so well. 

I have to figure this out. She used to be a cute and happy poser; you only need to see her sidebar photo to know!

So why am I thankful today? I am thankful that Lucy allowed me to take any photos of her. At all.  😕

All suggestions are welcome. Please.

  1. I too have no idea. Hopefully it is just a passing phase. Lucy is a sweet and adorable. Maybe she prefers to see your face instead of the camera or phone hiding your face. Lol!

  2. But she is a very cute dog...don't stress her with camera :)

  3. I think she reacted like this because she was doing her business, I think I wouldn't make a friendly face either if somebody takes a picture of me while in the restroom, lol ! poor thing ! BTW my cat would do the same !

    1. Hi, Gattina. When I posted that photo, I realized that it did look like it, but she was not. It's a posture of discomfort. Thank you!

  4. We all have been posing since we were puppies but some days we just don't feel like it either.

  5. Sometimes I need a treat to smile at the camera for mom!

  6. She's adorable. Perhaps her treats aren't enough. Just a though.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to Lucy. ♥

  7. Do you bribe her, I mean offer her treats after a photo session if she looks at you? Lucy sure is pretty! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  8. Lucy you are a beauty and OMDs look at the view you have for your pose
    Hugs Cecilia

  9. Lucy is adorable. Each of our animals has gone through a "I will never, ever let you take my photo again!" phase. Right now Jo Jo runs every time she sees me and my cell phone!
