The Ice Cream Book! It's Coming!

My publisher, Familius, just sent out its Fall 2019 catalog and our "Dogs Vs Ice Cream" book is in it! It's real and coming to a bookstore or pet store near you soon! It's very exciting! Very colorful! Okay, I'll calm down now. You know, I have really loved this project. I've written before that it was seven ice cream socials for dogs in August and September in which we photographed 192 dogs and cones filled with Purina's Frosty Paws doggy ice cream. I used Frosty Paws original because I wanted all the ice cream to be uniform in color -- like vanilla. I've used others that have pretty colors but I just wanted them all to be one color and Frosty Paws is very easy to find. And we just used ...

The Ice Cream Book! It's Coming!

Avid readers of my blog (hee hee -- there are no avid readers) have heard about my sister Denise. Well, she was just in L.A. this month and helped me on a very special photo shoot. It was for her step-daughter Kate, her boyfriend Clayton, and their dog Nora, all residents of Los Angeles. She gifted them a pet photography shoot by me and on a clear but partly cloudy day, after rivers of rain, we stepped out to the western edge of Los Angeles County.First of all, Kate and Clayton are quite an attractive couple but you add on Nora and you have quite a trio. The landscape was perfect. Big boulders, blue sky with puffy clouds, and green grass peeking out from among the rocks. In short, quite a ...

And I know she's a NYC girl. But you never know, do you? Call me, Miley!Check out the story on PureWow and TV Insider. And below is the front of the card included in the gift bag.

The Ice Cream Book! It's Coming!

Thank you everyone for such a wonderful 2018! I am filled with gratitude over the number of dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and people I've gotten a chance to photograph this year! What a great year 2018 has been! I've had such a wild ride, it's kind of unbelievable! I'm pretty sure I've written about this hundreds of times but my Ice Cream Social for Dogs book, tentatively titled "Dogs Vs Ice Cream," will be published by Familius in July 2019, just in time for National Ice Cream Month. It's my first book and I'm excited out of my head about that. That was seven Ice Cream Socials for Dogs with just over 190 dogs photographed. It was super cute watching the owners react with their pets. Hey, if ...

Another Cat Calendar

The Ice Cream Book! It's Coming!

It's been four years since I last did my all-cat calendar but we have another one for 2019! But it's a personal calendar, one designed for cat brothers Vincent and Winston. Their mom Monica had outfits for every month for them. These boys were great. Well, Vincent didn't love outfits... he usually only had one expression... but he put up with it, which, truth be told, kind of astonished me. As the caretaker of my two cat boys, they don't like to dress up that much. Well, not at all. But these guys went through all 12 months.I would photograph one of them first, usually Winston, the gray boy, and then Vincent. And in Photoshop I would put the two of them together in appropriate settings. I ...
