Pizza Party for Dogs!

On September 28, we're throwing our Pizza Party for Dogs at Kriser's Natural Pet in Studio City! We've booked 22 sessions throughout the afternoon and the $39 session fee goes to benefit DR Doghouse Pitbull Rescue.After our five years worth of dogs-eating-ice cream, we've started thinking about dogs-eating-pizza photo shoot since last year but wanted to get "Dogs Vs. Ice Cream" out into the world first. Our launch date for the book was August 1 and we spent some time at signings. And then... we needed something new and fun to do and the pizza idea came to fruition.I amassed the props... brick backdrop (I had to think really long and hard about what kind of background our fake pizzeria ...

Pizza Party for Dogs!

Wow, what a fabulous time we had last Saturday at our Days of Whine and Rosés event at a downtown Los Angeles photo studio! It was so much fun with expert sommelier Brianne Cohen pouring a number of specially curated rosés and me photographing dogs in a rosé-themed setting. And pink bubbly all day!This is what I hope to do for you guys... design a fun activity that you can do with your dogs AND get a photo shoot out of it. Right?!? So let me know if you have some ideas (I have a lot) or you can subscribe to my newsletter for details of when I throw another one.Oh wait, before I say more about the Whine and Rosé event, did you know that Yelp now includes a feature ...

Pizza Party for Dogs!

It’s dusk in Los Angeles. Palm trees black against a cobalt sky. Horizon glowing like a cigarette’s lit end. You and your dog as restless as the Santa Anas. You want to hit L.A.’s gritty streets to sniff up something new.Here it is . . . Dog Noir – an uncommon photo shoot.Transform into a film-noir character – gumshoe, damsel in distress, gangster, gun moll, femme fatale – and head with your dog to an iconic L.A. film-noir location. Does it look like a 1940s, black & white movie still starring you and your dog? That’s the point, baby.Oh, I've been busy behind the scenes and I'm finally ready to introduce my latest project! It's called Dog Noir ...

Happy Halloween!

Pizza Party for Dogs!

It's been so long, my friends! A very, very busy month as I finished the book by the October 15 deadline, then began to fulfill other orders plus squeeze in a couple of really fun dog and cat photography shoots! But now it's near Halloween and I finally completed what I guess you would call a Halloween Storytelling image. Yes, it's my friend Luna, the border collie mix, who is one of my greatest muses because of how expressive she is.I don't know if you watch "The Handmaid's Tale" on Hulu but I love it. Well, love is a strong word. It's sometimes very hard to watch, especially the second season. It was pretty brutal but of course I was addicted to it and hooked my sister on it as well.For ...

Photo Compositing in Pet Photography

Pizza Party for Dogs!

Quite often when I say I do pet photography composites I'm met with a blank stare. It's just simply that a lot of people don't really know what a composite is. What seems like such a natural word in my world may as well be another language to someone else. So I'm going to break it down a bit.In general, with compositing, you are creating a scene with with at least two elements that weren't photographed together. Now the end results can be for different things. Say I did a pet photography shoot with three dogs. Two are looking at the camera, one isn't. Or there is a family of a large number of animals but it's pretty difficult to wrangle them all together. In this case, I can swap out heads ...
