Oh my goodness! I was very fortunate to photograph Forrest for his adoptive parents. They now have official baby pictures of their new addition. Since he is being weened from mom, he is attached to his teddy bear, which is 3 times his size! In order to capture his personality and personalize the image, I used his teddy in the image with him.
Echo turned 1 so Shannon and I commemorated her milestone with a photo session.
I love the outtakes as much as the session photos sometimes, especially when working with animals.. Here's a perfect example:
Leopold is looking for a quiet and peaceful forever home. He likes to be petted and relaxed, but isn't very fond of quick movements or loud noises. If you would like to snuggle Leopold forever, contact Michigan Humane Society Rochester Hills Center and ask for Pet ID#824213.
Praline has the most unique markings. I love her little white specks on her nose. It's as if she had her nose stuffed in a bag of powdered sugar chrusciki (Polish Angel Wings). She also is one of the sweetest and most laid back little ladies. If you can give Praline a home, contact the Michigan Humane Society Rochester Hills Center and ask for pet ID#827113
This kitten is so darn spunky! He was climbing over everything, exploring, pouncing, playing with a ball, kicking himself in the head. He was a lot of fun to photograph. His family has lots of fun playing with him and it's obvious he likes to play back.
Butterfly is a natural at modeling. She strikes a pose with the best of them. She is in need of a forever home. If you are interested in adopting her, contact the Michigan Humane Society Rochester Hills Center and ask for pet ID#825813. Here's a link to her description: http://www.michiganhumane.org/adoption/adopt-pet.html?petid=34867529
Today at the Michigan Humane Society, I got to photograph Tiger Lily. Don't let her fierce looks fool you. She is a love bug! Just check out that behind the scenes image of my assistant giving her a chin scratch. She loved my plush blanket and kept kneading it with her paws. She has lovely, manicured paws with long black hairs over each claws. Her markings are absolutely beautiful.
Can you give Tiger Lily a loving home? If interested in her, contact the Rochester Hills Michigan Humane Society and ask for pet ID# 819551.
I just love stormy skies. They add so much drama to an image. Especially for this one. I think it added to the story.
On top of it all, the approaching storm added a tremendous amount of color saturation. This session was simply gorgeous.
I am not usually a saturation junkie. Don't get me wrong. I like color. However, for a lot of my work, I like letting colors play off each other in a muted way. But, when I met with Xaina to photograph her, her family, and her german shepherds, it was threatening thunderstorms. The greens were so vivid and the sky was very dynamic. It reminded me of Scotland. Then, contrast that with Xaina's gorgeous red hair! How could I not let the colors speak for themselves. Muted and subtle colors just wouldn't do.
