Welcome to my Orlando photography blog. I would like to share hints I've learned photographing children and other portrait subjects so you can understand what makes your portraits better. The first thing that is important for any portrait is your clothing choice.

Happy 17th birthday to my pomeranian Cody

The smartest dog I have ever known turned 17 years old January 2nd.  Happy Birthday Cody.  Love him !  I adopted him when he was 3 and I originally bought him for my grandfather who desperately wanted a dog for a companion. The lady I got him from no longer wanted him because he was "oversized" for a pomeranian. Sometimes the gifts we get for others come back to us in the most amazing way. I flew him back from Pennsylvania after only 3 days when he refused to eat. Once he got back to me, he ate immediately. Go figure. I used to say that he was the most expensive dog I ever owned because I flew up with him to deliver him and paid to fly him back, along with a limo ride from Johnstown to the Pittsburg airport. On his 15th birthday he became paralyzed and had a $6000 disc surgery. I know, but what we won't do for those we love. He is pretty spoiled as are all my fur children. Cody has a special talent with mothering other animals and has helped raise all the dogs ( and cats) I have rescued. The lady I got him from told me he chased cats, but he changed his mind when he met our first kitty rescue.
             I always take a professional portrait or two of my animals when I adopt them because I want to remember them always ! I love doing portraits of every type of animal. I personally have a small country estate with horses, dogs, cats, ducks and a cockatiel. I have never known an animal that I didn't like or didn't like me. I photographed horses all across the country professionally for years and became known for it. Talk about a dream job.

            There is a new movie coming out soon called "A Dog's Purpose that shows a dog reincarnating as many different dogs and helping and loving those who own him. He ends up coming back to the boy who had him first, who is now a grown man. The man recognizes him from the specific way he retrieves a ball. To see the movie trailer, go to   

When a client tells me they love animals, say no more, they had me at "love animals".      Animals were my first love and my passion.
