Behind The Scenes of My Header Photo Shoot and My Card

Hi, all! Today I'm taking you all behind the scenes of my Valentine's Day header photo shoot.
So sit back, relax and watch me do my thang.

I also got a Valentine's Day card from my BBFFs (Beautiful Bestest Furiend Furevers) Lily Belle and Muffin! Thank you, Sweeties! Love ya!
"Momma! I got a card from Lily, and Auggie's collar came!" Check back next week for a review!
"Uh, Momma? I don't have thumbs, will you open it?"

"Aw, that is so sweet!"

"Thank you, Lily and Muffin! You're the bestest furiends a girl could ask for!"

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola, Top Model
The equipment/props, minus the Nikon.

I'm ready!

I get paid in food.

My neck sign. Mom stole the idea of Pinterest.
It's a cardboard heart covered in tape and construction paper.

Trying it on for size.

Little long!

The set

Needs more...umpf.

Much better!

Crappy lighting, but this shoot needed to be done. 

Get a loooonnnnggg little doggie!

87 photos later, here are the winners:
New profile pic

New header.
Exposure, color and clarity were fixed in post production, as well as getting my eyes brightened and my "mascara" (dark eye rims) enhanced.
