New lens for Omaha Pet Photography SHINES bright!

Just received my new lens in the mail and I am truly a happy customer! For the past year I have been shooting with a Canon 50mm F1.4 prime lens which works well for 90% of portrait photography. It opens up real wide and chugs light and creates the most beautiful pet and people portraits ever. 'I' was the zoom on that lens. I had a couple of other standard kit lenses the were used but I had NO patience for slow lenses! So, I sold them on eBay. Moved on and upgraded to the Tamron 28-75mm F2.8. Fast and sharp and lightweight and AFFORDABLE! I shoot all shots in RAW format, then create more magic in LR3 and finally the icing on the cake is in CS5. This shot at 28mm proves that I don't have to sacrifice a mortgage payment in order to buy an 'L' lens. (I'll consider that investment next year!) Until then, my mascot WILL be beautiful and my future clients WILL have amazing pet portraits to cherish!!!!

Darling kitten and girl create cuteness pet portrait!

What a darling couple of small things to photograph! The kitten has been named appropriately 'Diamond' because of her diamond shape mark on her head by Rozzy. This little girl is obsessed with anything princess like and Diamond came into her life and is bringing her so much joy and cuteness! My favorite photograph is the close up portrait of them both. It's 'high key', desaturated and grainy for a vintage look and I LOVE it!!!

Leia grad party with oreo cake and celebrity!

Leia celebrated her grad party this weekend and it was a nice turnout. Family, friends and good eats. Little king sandwiches were on the menu and OREO cake!. Leia is good friends with Lukas AKA'FRED FIGGLEHORN' (he is a delightful and kind kid) and his cousins plus 40 kids pigged out on sammiches and cake. I couldn't resist a celebrity photo snapshot though. Seriously!

Toy Pomeranian dog models the latest teen fashion

On a beautiful Saturday morning in June a blond toy Pomeranian and a willing teenager got together to pose for some fabulous outdoor portraits. I'll try to make this a weekly event to showcase some hip and stylin' fashions where pets are a big part of the show. Pets and people getting together and connecting for a photo shoot. This is where my adrenaline rush happens. I love to use bright and bold colored tops on people for backgrounds. It contrasts wonderfully with the pets fur. Mint is a hot color this summer, vintage denim from second hand shops is forever trendy and you can never go wrong with classic red! LOVE it!!!
