The Creature Conservancy Where in Ann Arbor, MI can you see an Arctic Fox, a Reindeer and an albino Alligator? The Creature Conservancy ! Warm sun on our faces, Alex and I entered and were immediately intrigued by the black swans floating gracefully in the pond directly in front of us. In the distance to the […]
In May of 2015 my family made a visit to Sea Life Michigan, at the request of my girls (ages 10 and 13). Having been to many aquariums in many cities, we were not sure what to expect, especially since this one is located at a mall (Great Lakes Crossing). We ordered our tickets in […]
This Tressie Davis Photography Pet Portrait session was a ton of fun, and my first real experience making professional portraits of a cat. As most folks know, you can’t “make” a cat do anything…so most of the session involved me following Havarti around and waiting for him to look cute. Sometimes he did. And sometimes […]
A small tree in my backyard held a little surprise. A nest with three eggs. I told myself I’d photograph the progress frequently….then I got distracted (squirrel!).

We were kinda hoping that the mama goose would bite Brian, […]

How do you know when is the “right” time to euthanize a pet? I recently asked this question on Facebook, because my buddy Tiger is struggling a bit. He has been sick for quite some time – possibly a brain tumor, but we don’t know for sure because we are unwilling (don’t hate me) to […]
So very often I am asked where did I shoot an image, how did I shoot it, what made me think to try a specific location or pose, etc. I am also very often told by clients “I don’t think there are any good backgrounds there” (in their home/yard/city/whatever). Nonsense. Most recently I shot portraits on […]
