Hello my furiendsss!
Valentinesday is around the corner and Abel already found his Valentine.
She is a beautiful red dapple miniature dachshund named Lotje (@lotjethedachshund) 💕
So, Lotje lives in New York, VS, and Abel lives in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, but we wanted a photo together to celebrate our first valentinesday together.
I asked the mommy of Lotje to take a picture of Lotje with a white background and I would do the same with Abel and then I will put them together in one photo.
Here you can see the result and all the other photo's too:
It took a while to get Abel sitting still, but at the end it went well! My first idea was that Abel held a rose in his mouth for Lotje, but as you can see, that didn't go very well haha.
We stopped trying en just took a 'normal' photo, but to make it more 'valentinesdayproof' I edited with some hearts and crowns.
Now they look super cute together and everybody is jealous! Look at us, we make such a good couple!
We are still looking for a beauty too for Eros btw 😏 so if you know a pretty lady, you can tag her under our valentinesday post on Instagram!
Love to see all the ladies coming in for Eros, that would make him feel special.
This was it for now, if you want to share something or comment or ask, feel free to massage us.
If you use a photo of us, please tag us (see previous post) 💕

Hello my dear fuuuuuuuriends!
It's been a while, but I finally found a subject to write about.
It happend to me as a photographer before, but now it happend to me as an owner of two insta-doxies again: The copycat.
What can we do about it? And how can we get credit for it? And, how can we ensure that this does not happen again?
One day I scrolled down my Instagram timeline and I saw a picture dat looked very familiar and I clicked on it and saw I that it was an exact copy of a picture of mine.
At first I saw surprised, but then really soon after I felt a little betrayed.
Sometimes you get inspired by something and you'll use it as an inspiration. And when I use something from somebody, I'll give them credits for it.
But unfortunately I had to find out myself: I was being copied.
For now, it was okay because I reacted like ' Hmm looks familiar haha 😂' and the person reacted like 'Inspired by you😘' and we went on.
But I needed to get the credits for it by meself! And that is the part what annoys me a little bit... we deserve the credit, we need the credit and we would like to get the credit without asking!
Back to the questions: What can we do about it? And how can we get credit for it? And, how can we ensure that this does not happen again?
Well, to be very honest, you can't do very much about it. We live in 2018 where social media is unstoppable. But we can spread the world and let them know what to do.
I love it when I inspire people, really I do, but sometimes they do not understand that we worked really hard for it, and then I see an post without being mentioned.
Thats hard to take for me, especially because I'm a photographer. So If you have any questions or want to create a picture like ours, just ASK! And I will let you know if it is okay and if you would like to give us some credits for it!
I want to give you an example, but the copycat will stay anonymous, because I do not want to spread any hate towards the copycat. (scroll down below for the picture)
And at the end of the day, the 'copycat' inspired me to write this post, so it all comes back together.
Please feel free to ask for any tips, permission or anything else! Because I love to inspire people and spread our creativity!
Abel, Eros & Sterre
PS: for all the smart ones out here, yes I asked my 'copycat' if I can use the pictures as an example, with the promiss the person will stay anonymous!
Because, the person and I are good and we talked about it!
Happy Birthday to our beautiful doxie Eros!
10 years already and still just a few grey hairs around his nose!
But we all know that the pictures from instagram will look way more fancy then real life. So, I decided to post my behind the scene about this beautiful picture.
You guys should know that we don't have a white floor, and only a few white walls where I can photograph my doxies.
I create my own wall and make sure it will look like a studio and weird enough, it works!
But maybe I should buy a background system soon, to create some pictures with more coloured backgrounds. But unfortunately I'm just a student with a low budget so for now it works quite good.
Eros is the best model, he stits still, he doesn't bite in everything like Abel does, he behaves like a real model! So for this picture the only difficulty was to create a stunning and original photo.
I've tried a lot of things, other flags, balloons and all kind of stuff. But after all, the most basic photo was the best one.
I hope you guys think this photo looks as cute as I think it is!
If you have any questions, or tips, or advice, or just wanna say something, it is all welcome!!
We want to hear from you guys what you think, is you want to see more of these posts?
Let us know :)
PS: The other pictures are just raw images so don't judge us on that hahah!
