I get to meet some really amazing people and some pretty cool animals too....one of these days I need to dig into my archives to find the smattering of pictures of kiddos with dogs, chickens, tortoises, snakes, toads, and crabs that I have photographed! One of my all time fav pics from when I was first starting photography is a of a boy with a praying mantis on the end of his finger....I LOVE that shot.
I really feel like people connect so much with their animals. I have 4 kids who many days act like animals so we don't have any cats or dogs (I guarantee if you ask them to act like a dog or cat they will....and for now that works for me). WE do however have a HERBERT....
Herbert is our tortoise...he likes to hang out in the back yard...eats whatever fruits and veggies I give him and generally is SUPER easy to have as a PET. AND....he will live until my kiddos are in their 20's...and that makes me really happy! So when people tell me they have pets that they want photographed...we always try to work it in...even if they do happen to be a dog almost as big as me! Pretty soon...Mr. "K" will be slobbering as much as the dog and mom and dad will have some serious fun on their hands! :)
So....in all of his grandeur....Mr. "K" and his new lifetime buddy...Mr. "M"!
Aren't they so cute together!
Dad was SO excited that his "boy's" were being photographed so he jumped in for a couple of shots! I am saving those for the slideshow.
But here is a super smiley Mr. "K" with his new family....
It truly does amaze me at how much some babies can look so similar....Mr. "K" reminds me of two clients I have had....he looks so similar to them....except for the RIDICULOUSLY awesome MOHAWK that this little 5 week old was sporting! Can you get over this...
and that was AFTER we had put some hats on him! This hat is an original from the amazing Jolie Anne! You can check out her work on etsy HERE!
Stay tuned for more CPR images coming up!
