i haven’t photographed these two in like 5 years, i think it is. i’ve known them for even longer than that. casey has worked for my brother for years, starting at the original animal hospital that he owned, going with the move to the now Alicia Pet Care Center. she now is the director of operations of The Pet Rescue Center. she has a tremendous heart for animals and music is pretty much the only other thing that really reaches into her soul. her daughter is completely following both of those paths in her life.
when casey and i originally talked about her shoot, we bantered back and forth about the options. it was the usual suspects for this area: the beach… the woods… etc. when she said she would love to do it in her home and do it more as like a slice of life session, i was thrilled. YES! count me in! so, here’s a little sample of what we got up to:
i told the two of them about a photo i had done of myself years ago during a trip to the philippines. we gathered the appropriate necessary props and i went through a few lessons of the best way to achieve “maximum lift-off”, and we spent the next few minutes creating some extra fun.
