I have always been a huge animal lover. As a kid, we had pets of all kinds. My parents made sure that we took good care of them, and this early "caring for others" definitely helped to shape who we were. Since animals are always willing models, I find myself shooting them often, but have rarely showed any of these images. I'm not sure why. As I was going through some folders today, I came across this shot of Sebastian, who is one of my daughters adorable Pugs. He has been a patient "model" more times than I can count.
