Today I finally took my two dogs to the studio for some fun. They are both big, and full of energy and bot terribly well trained. It was a crazy half hour to get them posed and snap a few images.

Pet photography is an area that I would like to grow. I figured that if I could get my two crazy canines to behave, I can handle other pets as well.

Erie Pet Photography: Cats and Dogs

Today I had the honor of photographing a pet for the 2012 Humane Society calendar. Fergus, a lively golden retriever, has a wonderful personality and loves running around outdoors.
 Using my new 70-200 IS II lens, I captured some great action photos of Fergus retrieving his red toy.
You can tell that this is one happy dog!
Then we went on a cross country road trip to visit with some kittens:

These four kittens were a lot of fun. They were still a bit freaked out by the grass, but they are starting to get inquisitive. By the way, if anyone wants a kitten, let me know!
