Pet Photography Project 52, Week 51: Simplify

This pre-Christmas week has been busy, to say. the. least. Between goal-setting meetings for the coming year, editing my final session of 2016, and crossing off last-minute Christmas to-do’s, I have been one busy little bee.

Winston & Cubby – Coraopolis Pet Photography

It’s not every day that I get to photograph pigs. Yes, pigs–two popcorn-obsessed, lovingly spoiled pot-bellied pigs! That said, meet five-year-old Winston. It was a super blustery late-November afternoon for piggy photos, but Winston was a good sport, pausing in between bites of Cheerios, popcorn, and grass to give me a snout-y smile.
