Before I became addicted to photographing humans, I really thought I wanted to be a food photographer. Well there’s really not much market for that and I thought I’d have to be a better cook. Anyway, Ree Drummond has the perfect food, family, fun, photography website. If you haven’t checked her out, you should. Here’s the link: The Pioneer Woman but wait, don’t go yet. So after I decided she had the market on that, I thought about my dogs. We had two at that time, Molly and Sarge. Molly is gone now but Sarge is going strong. I thought how fun it would be to set up something with a pet groomer and see if folks wanted their dog’s portrait taken after their grooming session. It never really worked out although I still like the idea. What I like more is photographing pets (dogs mainly) in their surroundings interacting with their people. I’ve tried having a couple in the studio but most of them didn’t like the unfamiliar surroundings and plus, Sarge got really jealous. So anyway, I take LOTS of pictures of Sarge for 2 reasons. He’s an available subject who doesn’t moan and groan when I ask him if I can try something out with him, and number 2, he’s really a cute little guy. Here is a typical day in the life of my spoiled yorkie, Sarge. By the way, he is not a little delicate tea cup yorkie. I call him the “Uber Yorkie” because of his size. He’s quite loveable. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into the life of my little 4 legged child. And if you have a dog (or cat, or bird or lizard, anything but a tarantula) you want a session for, please contact me. I will be happy to do it.
