THE KITTY CAT PROJECT | Phoenix Pet Photographer

I've been working on a really FUN project over the last couple weeks, but unfortunately, I can't really say much about it just yet!  Suffice it to say that I've had so much fun playing with shelter cats lately!

Foothills Animal Rescue was so great to work with on this project and all the sweet faces you see below, (and many, many more!) are still waiting for their 'forever' homes!  If you're ready to welcome a little furry feline friend into your life, check them out!  And FAR (Foothills Animal Rescue) has lots of great dogs, too!

Are these the cutest faces you've ever seen??  :)

SANTA PAWS PHOTOS ARE DONE! | Phoenix Dog Photographer

We had SOOOO much fun photographing all the adorable pups that came out last weekend to the Villa La Paws Santa Paws Event!

Thank you so much to all of you that brought your dogs out to benefit seven of our local rescue groups!  We all had such a great time while raising money for these awesome organizations.   I hope you enjoy your images!

I have lots of fun events planned for the new year, so make sure you subscribe to our blog and "Like" our Facebook Page!  This is where all the events and special Mini-Sessions will be announced first!
This is just a sampling of some of the dogs we had a chance to meet...

The Santa Paws Event at Villa La Paws is coming up soon... Next Sunday, Nov. 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  This event will benefit 7 different local rescue organizations.

There will be a choice of two backdrops...  One with "Santa Paws" on a holiday backdrop and a second set-up where headshots of your four-legged friends can be done with all sorts of holiday scarves, bandannas, antlers, hats...etc!  You get your choice of one of the two.

The fun part of this event...  along with the beverages and cookies of course, is that you can choose which organization you want your donation to go to.  There will be a jar for each organization and you will be given a 'chip' when you pay for your photo.  Just drop your chip in the jar of your choice.  Or for those that can't decide... there will be a jar that will be split equally between all the organizations that are there!

So, mark your calendars!  Printing will be done on-site, and you'll receive a holiday frame to display your photo!

CANVAS CLUSTERS | Scottsdale Pet Photographer

With the holidays right around the corner things around here are crazy busy!  I have so many photos and events to share with you!

Today I wanted to show you how images from your photo sessions can be used to create clusters.  This cluster was made from a single shoot that I did last week during the graduating class of Hollywood Dogs at Villa La Paws!  A series of images (really any number of images from 2-12) all with the same color tones work best for this effect.  The secret is to make sure to use images that compliment each other in the color spectrum!  These can be images done in the studio or on location.  We just want to make sure they are all shot with the same quality of lighting.

And this hysterical laughing dog is Shylo!  I could hardly take the photos because I was laughing so hard!

If you're in the market for a fun, personalized piece of artwork for your home consider a grouping of your images.  Although most of the time these are done as canvas prints, you can just as easily do them with the new metal prints or we can mount your images on backer board and make them seem to 'float' off the walls. 

The cluster below was done with (1) 24" x 32" and (3) 10" x 13" gallery-wrapped canvases.
