The Maple Bear
We got Maple as a pup. As a wheaten terrier, they are known go through rapid changes in coat color and texture over their first year of life (born black, and by year one they are nearly white), so I challenged myself to creatively document her growth and changing appearance, bi-weekly. At four months old, her white undergrowth started to appear and the length of her hair had started forming the fluffy "bear form" that's characteristic of an adolescent wheaten. At the right time of day, the sun casts a near perfect life size shadow showcasing her form, and shooting from the top down, I was also able to document her changing colors in the same frame.
