Fall Pet Portraits at Mann's Best Friend Pet Store

Each year I am privileged to be able to set up a studio inside the super pet store in Moore, Oklahoma, "Mann's Best Friend". Lisa Jensen is very generous with her time and space. 

We usually attend Barktoberfest where the pets come in dressed in their costumes ready for portraits. This is a blast and just hilarious. This year I wasn't able to be there for that event, but I did get to create an event called "Fall Paws 2016". This was just as fun! Vanessa Wells from Vanessa Wells Images and my sweet daughter Savannah was there to help out. Savannah was using my iPhone on a Gimbal to record most of the video in the video above. Vanessa is always a HUGE help with editing and printing the photos. We print 5x7 photos on-site and put in nice sleeves with my business card.

We look forward to December where we will be photographing more, or some of the same, fluffies in their favorite Christmas attire.

3 Reasons to Think Twice About A House

"It's normal to have pre-purchase nerves when you buy a home, but buyers remorse is no joke. Here are 3 reasons you may want to think twice, and 3 reasons to think you may have found the right place."


IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE– If it's too expensive for your budget, that's one thing. But you also shouldn't pay for something that's overpriced relative to other nearby homes. THE LOCATION ISN'T WHAT YOU WANT– The saying is true: you can change the house, but you can't change the neighborhood. YOU'RE UNSURE ABOUT YOUR FUTURE INCOME– You should feel confident in your job security, or that you have savings needed to handle a temporary interruption in income.


IT'S THE HOME YOU JUDGE OTHERS AGAINST– If you find yourself referring to one specific house even when you're visiting others, it may be a sign. YOU CAN SEE YOURSELF LIVING THERE– You already have the living room furniture laid out in your mind-and it fits! IT'S GOT "GOOD BONES"– Sure, maybe the wallpaper isn't perfect, but things like light fixtures and carpet are easily customized to suit your style.
