I haven’t posted in the last week because I have been preparing the launch of my new site pmbphotography.com/creative – with many photos I don’t think I’ve ever shown. Please take a look and leave me a comment on this post with any feedback. Thank you!
This is Frederick. He was sneaking up on me a few minutes ago on my patio. But, being the highly evolved species that I am, I saw him and caught him and made him sit for a portrait. (And then I let him go.)

I know it’s a bit frivolous but I’ve had fun with our Pet of the Month portraits. For one, it’s liberating to say “Hey, stupid, stop walking away from me!” to a subject without any repercussions. For another, they never complain later that they weren’t accurately portrayed. Lastly, the animals are all from local Humane Society shelters and we have been told that the adoption rate for featured animals is almost 100%. Making a difference, saving lives. That’s what I do.
And thank you, Sarah, for the infinite inspiration in this vein.

Nothing groundbreaking here portrait-wise but I think it was a success in the studio (with our new backdrop stands!). Kim and I divided up the portraits this week and knocked out all four in three days. This was our favorite.
