"I'm nervous!", she messaged.

"Don't be!", I replied.....but I always am too.

You just never know....until you do.

Hello?! Is this thing on?? 🎤 I haven't been very active on this page...2020 definitely threw things for a loop. I had big plans for pet portraits specifically, and hope to pick those back up for 2021!

That said, our pets are part of our families, and you will often see them over on my family portraiture page....the Smith family was a great example this past Fall! So whether it's at your home, at the park, or (fingers crossed!!!) at a show this year...I'm really looking forward to seeing you all again!

October is my favorite.

Beaches are such a great location for dog sessions!

*Please note that as a responsible pet photographer/owner all dogs at the beach are kept ON LEASH AS REQUIRED BY LAW, and it is then edited in post processing*

Before I had to shut everything down due to Covid-19, we were able to sneak in this surprise announcement for one of my previous wedding couples. I think Fergus is going to be a great big brother, don't you?!

Loki, 8 weeks. Dog of mischief. Thief of our hearts.

[03/20/20]   I am brainstorming ideas for more live streams:

1) re-editing one of my earlier portraits and seeing how much it has changed over the last 2 years

2) image review for people currently shooting horses/pets

3) showing how I would edit submitted images

4) basic camera help

Suggestions??

[03/20/20]   Well, that was super fun! 2.5 hours of editing! Hopefully something useful for those that watched...even the lurkers ;) 😉

Join Me Tonight! March 19th at 8pm

I will take this image from start to finish, answer questions and chat about what I see (in my opinion) as the most frequent "mistakes" photographers make when editing black background photos!

Post in the comments now with your biggest black background issues, or things you want to improve on!

Share with your friends, and let's have some fun!

[03/19/20]   I've been livestreaming some portrait edits in my other page...any interest in horse editing?

03/04/2020

Did you know that I can photograph your other 4 legged friends at shows as well?

Who is going?

Happy to finally share this special composite! A lot of time and effort goes into making these as perfect as possible...the lighting, the editing and posing all have to be right for it to work....I hope they were as pleased as I was with the outcome!

[12/19/19]   I had been planning on waiting until Spring before opening my dog portrait sessions...but thought maybe I should check if there was any interest in 'Snow Dog' portraits specifically? I'm thinking that might be a fun Boxing Day offer!

Happy National Day of the Horse!! See your pony? Tag yourself!

I have started to catch my breath on outdoor shoots and am now starting to work on requests for horse composites....what are composites you ask? They are when I take two photos and place them together as one.

If you are interested in having one done...maybe of your own personal horses, or as a gift for barn family, coach etc...shoot me a message!

Details:

$25/horse in composite

NOTE: this is using images I have already shot, not for a new shoot :)
