About the love of an old dog

A few weeks ago, a beautiful human being emailed me to book a photo-shoot for herself and her dog. Her old, blind, cancer-ridden rescued dog. A dog that someone abandoned in his old age and that she rescued, to give him the most love possible in his last years of life. A gentle, quiet Boston […]

Weimaraner Braque photo shoot

A few weeks ago, I was hired to do a Father’s Day surprise photo session. The “baby” was a 3 year old Weimaraner Pointer who “matched the furniture”, to the delight of his human mom, hence the photo session was booked at his home. Let me tell you; this dog did not like the camera, […]

Lights, camera, dance!

I recently had the pleasure ( and challenge) to photograph a beautiful professional aerialist and ballet jazz dancer. It was certainly a novel way to shoot portraits and not entirely dissimilar to photographing acrobatic cats in mid-air, although this cat, I was able to communicate with. Small blessings. 😛 It was both a grueling and […]

I hope you enjoy the photo. And before you ask, they were not photoshopped to stand together and yes their […]

A family photoshoot

Now I know that when someone mention “family photography” your first thought is taking you to the parents with their kids. Human kids, that is.. Well, as it turns out in my line of work, the ‘kids” are usually of the furry, four-pawed variety. Case in point, a recent photo session comprised of mom, dad […]

Print the photos you love

I’ve always wondered how people see the value of getting 100 photos on a stick from the photographer, only to misplace the stick (and lose all their photos) or damage the stick -(and lose all their photos)- have you seen an USB stick? not the sturdiest things around…besides, are you ready to rummage through the […]

In life, there are cats, and then there are Main Coon cats. You have to meet one in person to realize how gorgeous they really are. They are huge and fluffy and soft and cuddly. They can also be funny. Like this: This is TRISKEL EDWARD SHERIFF CURTIS. His human mom owns a high-end cattery in […]

Afghan hound dog

I recently did a photoshoot with an absolutely gorgeous dog: an Afghan Hound. Elegant, mysterious and a very talkative clown at the same time, it was a special session. As I was clicking away I continued to be stunned by how beautiful this dog was. The camera loved him and seemed content to be admired. […]

Animal bloopers

I’ve been thinking for a while for a way to showcase all those animal photos that I took but never made it into the client’s selection because they were too strange or just plain funny (and inappropriate, sometimes..LOL) . So, I decided to add an “Animal Bloopers” section to my website. While that gets ready, […]

Beautiful kittens

Of all the cats I’ve ever photographed, ( and I have seen  my fair share of unique), Sphynxes have always been the  most fascinating. I know some people have strong reaction upon seeing them; usually not of the positive kind, but I personally have grown very fond of them. In reality, they are gentle, playful […]

What do cats dream about?

Sometimes when I photograph cats, I can’t help but wonder what they are thinking. Ok, granted, for some of them the message is obvious: “Mom, get me out of here; I hate all these flashing lights in my eyes.” Some of them are natural born stars and ham it to the camera with delightful ease. […]

Why photograph your pets professionally?

This post is going to be a little odd perhaps, a little off-kilter. “Why would I photograph my pets” someone asked me recently. I guess the underlying question would be “why hire a professional to photograph my dog/cat/ferret..etc..? ” The blunt answer is: because they will (probably) die before you and all you will have […]
