Brace yourself.

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 29: Sky, Before & After

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a before-and-after, so I thought week 29’s sky theme was a great opportunity. You see, while I intended on using Hunter for this week’s photo, living on four heavily wooded acres doesn’t always allow for the best views of the open sky, so I turned to a favorite Read More

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 28: Comic Pop Art

Comic, huh? Well, what direction to take this week’s Pet Photography Project 52 theme… I wanted to create something different, but what. My mind kept going back to art.

Finn the Husky/Retriever Mix – Schenley Park Pet Photography

I’ll admit that when I found out Finn was one of my calendar models, I was particularly excited. Like my Hunter, he’s a husky/retriever mix–so I was already in love–but it wasn’t until this handsome, happy, heartthrob bounced up to me at Schenley Park that he really won me over. Listening to Finn’s mom Becky tell Read More
