Allen provided me the opportunity to do my first official pet portrait session. He wanted to fill some multi-photo frames he’d bought awhile ago with pictures of his animals as a Christmas gift to his wife. She has a special connection with them and he anticipated she would go nuts over these pictures! We had to get really creative since half the animals we needed to photograph were grumpy cats! In many cases Allen had to hold his babies to calm them down, but I was able to snag some shots of the dogs in their natural environment! He also needed an updated profile picture for his workplace’s personele directory…and a framed shot for his mom.
He told me a couple of weeks after Christmas that when she unwrapped the first frame, she wasn’t totally sure what she was looking at and he thought “oh great, this is a disaster.” Then she started to tear up, especially when she saw her little white dog. Needless to say, these photos meant so much to her and were a total surprise. Well done, Allen!
