Pet Portraits

Ok…so I realize I haven’t been too good about updating my blog.  I also realize my last blog post had to do with photographing a pet! However, I am trying to get back in the groove of blog posting.  So here goes…

Today 3 kids walked in my studio to show me their new pet.  He was a cutie!  (Well the kids weren’t bad either)  So before they could leave, I had to spend just a couple minutes photographing the little guy for them.

Meet a Domanic.  He is 8 weeks old today and he is a Mal-Shi (a Maltese and Shih-Tzu mix) and was just a ball of fur.

So whether it is your pets or your kids…we can make portraits for you!

Memories made with a fusion video.

My motto as a photographer is “Making Memories Last a Lifetime”, I try to do just that.

12 years ago the Hampton family were blessed by the addition of Molly, a beautiful Golden Retriever.  Molly is not just a pet, she has become a member of the family.  Just recently the Hampton family found out that Molly was sick.  It doesn’t look like Molly will be around for long.  (UPDATE: Molly passed away April 9, 2014)

004_Hampton FamilyKeith called me, told me the story and asked if I could photograph Molly with their family.  I knew it was something that I would be honored to photograph.  But I wanted more for them.  Recently we have been creating a few fusion videos.  Now you ask what a fusion video is?  It is a combination of still images and moving images (video) blended together into a final product.  We would love for you to see what we produced for them.  Below is a link to the video.

Give us a call when you want us to create memories for you!

Fun clothing for fun sessions!

We absolutely love for our clients to have fun during a session!  And we have fun as well.  We also love to see it when they bring fun, quirky outfits!  But this time it was a little different!  Matilda Jane Clothing was kind enough to send me an outfit to review and photograph for them!

MJ_001Meet Carissa, our model who agreed to help us out!  She is wearing an outfit from the Paint By Numbers collection from Matilda Jane.  But the fun part is, this outfit is 3 different pieces sold separately.  You can mix and match their individual pieces to create several different looks!  And these colors look great on the solid white background (which I love to shoot)  Just look at the adorable long sleeve Sky View Puffer Tee, it looks great with the Turtledove Knot Top over it, or the tee would be great by itself!  Now how about those Gleam Leggings? The leggings add even more color and more quirkiness to the outfit!

MJ_003Carrisa had so much fun in the studio and outside!  The outfit sure never restricted her movement!  I never heard her complain once about how the outfit felt on her.  Yes, we have all had on cute outfits our parents put us in before that either scratched us like a tow sack or felt like a straight jacket! Not this ;)

MJ_002I also want to comment on the quality.  The pieces all felt extremely well crafted.  The material wasn’t thin, the seams were all sewn tight, I wasn’t afraid she was gonna mess it up playing on the hay bale and jumping around!

MJ_004So, now that you have my opinion on the clothing…I encourage you to check out their website. www.matildajaneclothing.com I am not saying you should purchase Matilda Jane clothing to come to our studio, please don’t think that.  I do encourage you to think about fun, quirky outfits, and how much fun they look in the portraits!

We look forward to photographing your child next!

The cutest Raggedy Ann!

Our studio has been extremely busy these past several weeks, but last night we made it a point to be open to photograph some cute kids in their costumes.  We had a few to show up in the studio, but this one took the cake!

This has to be the cutest little Raggedy Ann that I have seen.
