Baby Goat Kid :: Minnesota + Wisconsin Farm Animal Photography

I’ve been discovering that photographing farm animals in a studio setting is considerably more challenging than dogs! You have to stay one step ahead of them, while they’re constantly trying to figure out how to not do what you want them to do.

This beautiful little goat kid would rather snuggle on your lap than model for the camera, but I think this image isn’t too baaaaaad  :)

Rudy Tooty :: Minnesota Micro Pig Photography

Rudy Tooty showed off some of his tricks in the studio today! This sassy little Micro Pig is the first one I’ve ever met, and he was super fun to photograph! He’s only 5 months old, and lives with his mom in the city. He’s really smart, a little stubborn, and very dog-like. He knows how to sit, shake, spin, and stand up for treats, and he LOVES his treats :)

Stray Feral Rescue :: March Rescue of the Month

Continuing with our Giving Back Program, the March Rescue of the Month is Stray Feral Rescue. They are an all-volunteer, no-kill, pet fostering and adoption organization that provides education, resources, referrals, and advocacy to benefit all animals and the humans who love them. They take in owner-surrenders, and (as their name suggests!) stray and feral cats and kittens. They work mainly with cats, but they do have an occasional dog available for adoption as well.

I photographed Josie at her foster home, where she enjoys watching the birds from the radiator, and playing with her catnip toys. She had a litter of 4 kittens almost a year ago, and after some work on socialization, she and her kids are ready for their forever homes. Josie would be happiest as an only cat, or to be adopted along with one of her kittens.

Goodbye George :: Minneapolis Joy Session

I first met George when I did my Style Hounds project back in 2010. When I saw his amazing smile, I knew he would be a perfect model. He was the biggest Pekinese I’ve ever met, and just a goofy, sweet, wonderful boy. He’s a bit of a local celebrity, as it turns out my good friend Mary Ludington had also photographed him for her book, The Nature of Dogs.

I was so sad to hear they had to let him go today. He gave his family an incredible 15 years, and he definitely left a lasting impression on my heart.
