Rufus & Armani - A Christmas Card Story

One of my favorite times of the year is when I receive a call from Pat to schedule a session for a holiday card with Rufus and Armani. It all started three years ago when Pat wanted to do it as a surprise for her sons. Then we did it a second time, and this year people were asking Pat if she had had their photo taken yet. I love how it has become a tradition. As you can imagine whenever you combine a cat + a dog + a Christmas display it is going to be an adventure, so I've included a couple of behind-the-scenes photos as well. Here are a few of my favorites. I can't wait until next year! 


One of the reasons I love documenting my clients in their homes is because it captures life so candidly. Sometimes we take those moments for granted, but I always try to capture the little details that I naturally document in my own life, as part of a session. It is especially rewarding when I later hear comments like "that is so Max".

Michelle first contacted me when Max was diagnosed with a tumor and was going in for surgery and chemo at the beginning of the year. Shortly after our session in July he had his checkup and is cancer-free!! Hooray!! Here are a few of my favorites from my evening with Michelle, Max and the kitties in their home.
