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…
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!
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.
I hope my adventures continue to bring me in contact with new furry friends because they are often the best kind!!
Day 3! Our final day in Gatlinburg… We got up early and checked out of our little villa. Then headed over to the Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. It was a rainy Monday morning so the usually bustling tourist town was fairly deserted. We intentionally saved the aquarium for Monday… Can you imagine trying to get a shot like the one above with 1000 little kiddies running around? So perfect and serene.. so empty. Just how I wanted it to be!
One of the first things you see when you go in are the Japanese Mudskippers. OKAY ONE OF MY FAVORITE ANIMALS EVER!!! YESSSS!!!! I have never seen a mudskipper in real life.. I was so excited, I could have died!!! Almost peed my pants!! If you don’t know what these little buggers are, check out this link and then you too will be obsessed:
THEY ARE SO COOL.
Okay, anyway… take a breather for a second.
Not claiming this to be a photographic masterpiece here, but just some fun pictures from our day. That funny one in the first picture is named Stevie. Personal favorite. We were there just in time to watch them feed the little guys!
These are Nautili.. nautiluses.. uhh.. Yeah that’s about all I know about them… something about a math equation, too…
I was also really excited to see that they had Sea Dragons!! Another personal favorite aquatic animal. I have been trying and trying to get a good photo of these suckers for so long. I tried at the aquariums in Niagara Falls, Seaworld in Florida, and the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta… They are so hard to capture!! FINALLY. Finally, I got them! The pictures I’ve wanted! I can’t tell you how stoked I am about this!
So gorgeous. Maybe one day I can be a wildlife photographer, or a travel/destination photographer, where I get to go find these guys in the real world… Just dreams…
Alright! That wraps up the Gatlinburg vacation.. Again, sorry it’s been so long. Mad busyyy. Next pics are probably gonna be some production stills or something since that is consuming my life right now. Hope everyone is living a happy life and much love to all of you!! xo
