Miles+Ella: Washington, D.C. Pet Photographer
It was a busy Sunday last weekend, with two pet portrait sessions in one day (Savannah the cat to come!). Pets are what I first started photographing and I've really missed it. For about the past 6 months I've been focused on photojournalism, as well as wedding and portraits, while pet photography has all but disappeared from my repertoire. That was until I received an email from Miles+Ella's owners, and I couldn't have been happier. Miles and Ella are getting older, and their owners wanted to get some good portraits of them just being them. These dogs could not have been any sweeter. Miles (the chocolate lab) still looks, and acts, like a puppy. Despite both of them being thirteen years old, he and Ella were running around battling for a tennis ball outside for a solid 30 minutes, and they really only quit because it started to rain. We headed inside to get some shots of the dogs in their favorite environment: laying on the floor. Tell you what, they live THE LIFE!! Their owners are madly in love with them, they get regular treats of carrots and corn chips, and belly rubs out the wazoo. Makes you wish you were a dog sometimes.
