Snakes in a Studio

We don’t mind pets in our studio. We charge extra, though, because some owners let their dogs puke or piddle on our backdrops and say “Oh look. Isn’t Fluffy being cute!”. Sorry, cleaning isn’t included in our session fees.

She had visions of this 12 foot Burmese Python wandering around our studio, and refused to do it. Snakes don’t bother me at all, so I said I’d come in and shoot the last part of her session.

She showed up with a small reptile case and three small snakes. Karen ended up staying for the session (although she still refused to hold one).

The snakes were very well behaved (mostly), and I think we ended up with some images she’ll really like.

Here are a few others:

Pet Rescue

Disaster Relief Fund 2008_1221591859527I just donated to the Humane Society of the United States Disaster Relief Fund.

After Katrina, I saw this time and time again. People evacuated, leaving their pets behind to fend for themselves.

I just can’t understand that.

ike18 Owning a pet is more than just owning a possession. It’s a responsibility to care for that animal, to protect it, to commit yourself to the partnership you agreed to.

And yet, even after all the horror stories after Katrina, many pets were still abandoned during Hurricane Ike.  They were left in locked houses to drown or left roaming outside to be swept away.

Luckily, there are some extraordinary people around who respond to emergencies like Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike to save the animals that have been left behind. Most are volunteers, taking time away from their jobs and families to save as many lost pets as they can.

Thank you, to the animal rescue workers of the Humane Society of the United States, Noah’s Wish, The North Shore Animal League, and all the other agencies who have committed to rescuing abandoned animals.

Please make a donation to help these folks out. And if you ever have to evacuate, take your pets with you!
