for many people, myself included, our pets are our family. we love them unconditionally, just as they love us. we see it in their faces, in the way they look at us with love and devotion. it's this spirit i try and capture when photographing pets with their humans.
i specialize in environmental portraits showing beings living in their own space. an alternative to studio sessions, environmental portraiture allows people to be who they are in a comfortable setting of their own choosing.
what's the best way to get kids to smile for the camera? make them smile. i have no qualms about getting down on my belly and making oogly googly noises -- anything to get that natural, trusting squeal of gleeful delight.
