Pet Portraits

That annoying little brother…

Pet photography in Wisconsin

Pet photography is ridiculously fun. My friend Marcia is having me do a year of “annoying little brother photos”.  They were not initially called that, but her two other canines have deemed him “The Annoying Little Brother”.

I just found out there is a private dog park in Madison!  Laura introduced me to it when she, her husband Aaron, and their dog/ fur child Oscar came over from Milwaukee to do a session.  We were looking for a spot that Oscar would be comfortable with me photographing him without other dogs around,…
