Rookie and Lola have been in front of my camera before so I was beyond thrilled when they signed up for a studio session with me. These two are FULL of personality and have the squishiest and most kissable faces. I wanna squeeze their checks like a grandma would!!!
So, no, he is not a Spice Girl. In fact he’s a boy…a very handsome one at that. This little fluffernut is a cutie Schnoodle (Schnauzer/Poodle mix) named Sport.
Sport was an absolute DREAM to photograph. As long as I had a treat, I had his FULL attention. He would just sit/lay/stand in front of the camera until he was “released” or fed a treat. From what his mom says, this is way different than he used to be when he was younger. Evidently, back in his heyday, Sport was a little bit of a crazy boy (weren’t we all?). He’s since calmed down and has even done several years of volunteering with at-risk children. What an angel…
For a little over a year, I had a tiny little 11×8 foot office that I used for client meetings and ordering consultations. When we made the move to Uptown Charlotte, I knew I had to move my office out of Cornelius. I looked for months and months and finally found a place that would just be large enough for what I wanted to accomplish. I wanted to have a big enough space to meet with clients, work out of, AND do studio work. My new space isn’t super big or fancy – just 360-ish square feet – but it gets the job done.
My husband and I have been trying to personalize the space since we moved in and we are nearly finished (pics to come soon!). Fortunately, it’s far enough along that I can already set up my studio background and lights. I’m so excited to be shooting in the studio again…no need to worry about weather, time of day, etc. Plus, I love the nice clean look it gives!
So without further ado, I’ll be featuring some of my latest studio work here on the blog! Hooray!
One of the first models in the new space was Tucker. Please give a warm welcome to this multi-colored and very unique looking handsome boy!!!
Cosmo’s session was scheduled for a “warmer” day – about 43 degrees – which, at that time, was warm for the weather pattern we were having. Yeah. Well, turned out Mother Nature wanted to bring along a crazy wind chill with that so it wasn’t so “warm”. I’m talking, bundled up and still freezing kinda winds. Obviously, little Cosmo is a Chihuahua and they are very sensitive to the cold. We would go out a shoot a picture and then come right back in to get her warm. It was pretty obvious that it was going to be stressful on her so we scrapped the session for the afternoon and decided to try again the next day. It was probably the best decision because we lucked out with a very pretty evening and Cosmo was much more comfortable. She certainly got to show off her sweet little personality! :)
