I met Amy in the comfort of her own home to take her maternity photographs. Since I photograph most of my portrait work in outdoor natural settings, it was a nice change of pace not to have to worry about the timing of the sun and other elements. Working in a private home can have it’s own challenges though. You definitely have to use your imagination, as I did with Amy when we used her bathtub window as a backdrop and her stairs as a ladder.
I also got such a kick out of Riley Amy’s Schnoodle, yes that’s right… half miniature schnauzer and half poodle. I actually grew up with the same mix breed of dog and I always thought my parents made up the funny name. Now Scnoodles along with Goldendoodles, Labradoodles and everything oodle have become really popular pets.
