BFFAEAE

What is BFFAEAE, you ask?  Well, the five-year old inside of this puppy-loving blogger claims it to mean “Best Friends Forever And Ever And Ever“!

Meet Sophia, a delicious Boston Terrier, who lives happily in our little town of Montclair.   She is the proud Best Friend of our friend and restauranteur, Ilson.

 

Finding the perfect best friend can be a big task.  There are hundreds of ways to adopt, rescue, breed and love a new pup, but finding the right one for your lifestyle is key to a successful and lasting friendship.

Make sure that you are choosing a dog that is right for you and your lifestyle  –

Having a 130-lb pupster, think Great Dane or Mastiff,  in a teeny-tiny apartment is no fun for anyone.

Wanting to run and be active with your canine companion, perhaps you should be staying away from Bulldogs and Chihuahuas (although they enjoy a good walk, they definitely won’t be able to keep up with any marathon training!)

Dogs can also be quite expensive! Think food, toys, accessories, vet bills, training, medication, grooming and of course, Halloween costumes!

They are a big responsibility, but when done right, these lovable creatures will become your lifelong friends!

Headshots are Important…for Everyone!

Just as headshots can be crucial for people with jobs in modeling, acting, or even business; headshots are just as important for animals seeking work! One of the most basic steps in getting your animal into advertising photo shoots is to get them a great head shot. The better their photograph looks, the more likely they are to get chosen by the art director of the job. A photograph with good lighting that shows the animal’s face and body is a good bet. We photographed our friend Ilson’s (owner of Samba Restaurant in Montclair) Boston Terrier, Bella. The image shows her fit body stature and lovable face.

Who could say no to casting that face?

Photographing Food in an Environment

 

When photographing food in an environmental setting, attention to detail is key. Notice the creamy cup of butter next to the pastry?
Or the carefully placed newspaper by the coffee? The soft background baked goods add more of an atmosphere to the scene. The lighting hints at a morning glow around the food.
These details can help the viewer envision themselves in the setting and enjoying the wonderful food!

There is no better way to start off your week than with a perfectly brewed cup of coffee and a delicious pastry.
These scrumptious morsels were photographed for Samba restaurant in Montclair, NJ.
Why not head on over to make your Monday a little sweeter?

Happy Shooting Feasting. 🙂

T.G.I.F.

Weekend To-Do List (for all of us):

  • Relax. Breathe. Repeat.
  • Catch up on some ZZZZs.
  • Take some photographs ! Heck, why not kick it old school and shoot some film!
  • Check out the Garden State Cat Club Cat Expo/Show.
  • Adopt a cat from the expo…and spend the rest of the weekend attached to it.
  • Have an extra helping of dessert. It’s the weekend you’re allowed. (But make it something good like this flan from Samba restaurant in Montclair, NJ)

Happy Friday!
