New assistant in the studio

January 30, 2011 Published by . Leave your thoughts

As the people who have stopped by for headshots over the last couple weeks have noticed, there’s a new assistant in the Organic Headshots studio. She’s short. Fuzzy. Doesn’t say much. And she doesn’t really help much either.

She’s a dog. A foster dog from PAWS Chicago. I’m fostering her and giving her a good home while she recovers from being neglected and most likely abused before being rescued by PAWS. Under my recent care (and mad tuna dog treat baking skills) she has gained a much needed 15 pounds so far and is looking and acting like the healthy happy Akita she is.

She’s the sweetest thing since Pop Tarts- very friendly and just wants to be loved, pet, and fed every minute of every day. She greets visitors at the door during headshot sessions and sits quietly behind the camera, watching intently, waiting for a lull in the conversation so she can nudge her way over to whoever is having their portrait taken and distract them with belly rub requests.

I’m setting up for some headshots this morning and took some quick portraits of this adorable photo assistant. Who is available for adoption, by the way. Come for headshots, walk away with a perfect pet!
