As a pet and people/pet photographer the great majority of pet I photograph are dogs. While I do indeed enjoy and in fact, love photographing dogs, this portrait session was was truly a great pleasure to create.

For this portrait session, it was critical to have a helper and not just any helper. Karen, the birds owner brought her friend who also has birds and knows the ins and outs of bird behavior. Her friend assisted in bird placement and bird sounds and words that interested the birds.

I specifically chose a blue background to complement Karen’s shirt and to contrast nicely with the birds colors. We experimented with a lot of different posing combinations and Karen and her birds did a great job throughout the portrait session.

Just hanging out with my birds!
