Pets on Set!

Oh my goodness. I just LOVE pets. One fun thing about working on a film set is that I get to go around into all of these people’s houses and play with their animals. This is Daisy. She is the most lovely dog that I have ever seen. She is so cute and sweet that I chased her around in the cold rain to snap some photos of her so I can remember her forever. Isn’t she sweet????

Daisy’s Headshot… Sending it off to the studios.. she will be the next big movie dog! She could play a dog or maybe even a…

Lion?

What a sweetheart!! Aww…

This kitty was sooooo scared of me!! She saw my camera and would take off running. I don’t know if the big screen is in her future, but she sure is cute!

It did keep me entertained to chase her all over the house though ­čÖé

This handsome little tiger lives with the Beards, the most darling couple I have ever met. This little guy should know us pretty well because we have spent the whole month with Kim & Andy Beard and their little kitties. I can not express how grateful I am to this couple and their feline babies for letting us uproot them for so long. Wonderful, wonderful people.

Those tiger eyes!!! So great!

I hope my adventures continue to bring me in contact with new furry friends because they are often the best kind!!

Christin the Koi Fish

The series is back and BIGGER than ever, you guys. Oh my gosh.. I can’t even explain how excited I am about this. About a month of work went into this shoot today.. we are stepping it up a notch on the series and incorporating designers and wardrobe into our artistic animal shoots. I am so happy and excited and inspired!!!

Today’s shoot features Ms. Christin Sorensen rocking a killer dress made by Candace K Styling and sporting makeup by Subreen Davis Makeup Artistry. I am so so so lucky to have such a talented group of girls on my hands… It is an incredible thing!!! Ok Ok, now I’ll shut up and show you the goods!

We will start off with a few behind the scenes photos just for fun. The getting ready process is always a fun time to spend with the girls. We were all constantly snacking on donut holes which made Christin quite jealous… You see, she was glued to her chair as to not mess up her body paint while it was drying.. So in the below pictures, you will see some generosity as we feed her donut holes. ┬áCandace helped Subreen with the body paint to help pale out Christin’s complexion. Final touch: paint her nails black!

Once to the location in the University Area, Subreen was able to put the finishing touches on Christin’s back and Candace got her dress all set. We got the occasional funny stare from spectators.. I’m sure they were wondering what was up with the koi fish in the river. My favorite, though, are the people who pretend like that don’t notice. You can see a look of confusion on their face but they don’t want to be rude and stare… Gets me every time.

Happy Birthday again to Laura, the set decorator!

And now, I give you…. *drum roll*… Christin, the Koi Fish!
