Angus and Ben – Pet Session

Some dogs just have the world by the tail.

Angus and Ben showed up at our Bangor studio in a shined up, sharp-looking, red Chevy truck; the kind of truck dogs dream about. Sporting a Santa hat and bandanas, these bounced into the house.

Usually it takes dogs, particularly two dogs, a few minutes to adjust to the studio. Not Angus and Ben. They came in, sniffed, and were ready to go to work posing for their portraits.

And that makes perfect sense.

Four generations of Myerowitz men

Time Flies – Myerowitz Family, part 2

There is a bit of history between the Joles family and the Myerowitz family. We owe these folks a great deal. I’ll get to that in a minute. I’ll start with the subject at hand: family portraits.

We first photographed the Myerowitz family during the Thanksgiving weekend in 2011. That was a wild day, full of laughter and a certain Sesame Street song, and the day’s importance was palpable. Gail knew we were capturing a small slice, a brief moment in the family’s story because life keeps rolling, building, and changing.

Freyja, the Goddess of Love

Freyja, the Goddess of Love

I believe in love at first sight and self-fulfilling prophesies. Go ahead and call these two ideas hocus pocus, but before you do so, take a look at the images from Freyja’s portrait session.

5 Questions to Help you Decide if Professional Pet Portraits are Right for You

As a photographer, of course I believe in the importance of professional pet portraits but not for the reason you would probably guess.  I love the portraits I have, but it’s the ones I never had taken that have shown me just how special it is to have a portrait of a beloved pet.   

Life is busy.  Things happen.  For many of us, the thought never even crosses our minds.  I get it.  But if you’ve read this far, I bet you’re wondering if it’s time to think about portraits for your favorite furbaby.

Ruby’s Pet Portrait Session

From Boxer puppy to full grown beauty in a flash – Ruby’s Pet Portrait Session

Time flies and Miss Ruby is proof. Look at this gorgeous girl!

I swear it was only last week that her mum and dad brought her home to Bangor, a tiny Boxer puppy, all big feet and floppy. Visiting her for a good dose of puppy breath and cuteness was on my list of things to do. I swear. But it didn’t happen. Time got away from me. And now she is all grown up, nearly two years old.

It’s all about the fairy tale – Kori and Dan – Engagement

Once upon a time, in a stable far, far away, there was a beautiful, auburn-haired girl who loved horses. She could ride, she could jump, and she could muck out a stall with a smile. One day, she met a handsome young man who loved horses, too. As luck would have it, he owned a ton of race horses. He took one look at that gorgeous, feisty ginger and knew he had found his true love and a crack stable hand. A few dozen times to the winner’s circle and a diamond ring later and they were engaged. A match made in heaven.
