Project 52 | Self-Portrait

This week’s Project 52 theme was a challenging one–”Self-Portrait!” I am much happier behind the camera than in front of it, a feeling I believe many photographers share. But it’s not so bad when your best friend is in the picture with you! The most difficult part was handling my heavy camera in one hand, so I balanced it on my knee while I sat in the backyard with Buddy. I wish I had taken the time to do something more detailed, but I plan to try another self-portrait to share with you later this month. In the meantime, here’s our quick backyard “selfie”…

Baby Wallace | newborn portraits

Just two and a half weeks ago my big sister gave birth to her second child, a handsome, chubby baby boy named Wallace Aaron. We are thrilled with this new addition to our family! I’m so happy to have a little nephew to love and spoil, just like his big sister, Layla. When Wallace was a week old, we had a little newborn portrait shoot. I am obviously not a newborn photographer, so this was a very different experience for me, a far cry from playing on the beach with energetic dogs or making strange noises and waving stinky treats around. As long as baby Wallace was warm and fed, he was the perfect little model, sleeping away while we positioned him for photos. I loved photographing his chubby baby cheeks, precious little lips, and all of those darling baby rolls. I’m so excited to watch this little boy grow up (but not too fast!) and see where life takes him.

Welcome to our family, Wallace Aaron!

Project 52 | Paws

“Paws” is the theme for this week’s Project 52 challenge! I love this theme, because detail shots are my favorite images to capture. I love Buddy’s paws. As he’s gotten older, white hair has popped up all over his body, right down to his toes. The best thing about Buddy’s feet? I never have to trim his nails, because his daily walks do that for me. Never had a nail trim in over 8 years!

52 on Friday :: Paws » Northern VA Pet Photographer | DC & MD Dog Photography - […] you can guess…This week’s theme is paws.  Go check out Emilee Fuss Photography in Sarasota, FL to see her take on the paws […]

Marna Niebergall de Rojas - Oh, I love these photos Emilee. I have similar ones of my Joy when she was 16. I wish I would have just jumped on the blogroll this week and shared those from my archives. I love that little “star” In between the pads of Buddy’s paw. What a beautiful capture.

Alicia Kapheim - Nice idea to get the pads of the paws, I agree w/ Marna, the patterns on the pads and in between is pretty neat.

Susannah - Love these shots.
