Project 52 – Black & White (4/52) | Central Coast Photographer

Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.

The theme for week 4 is – “Black & White” – chosen by Karen Weiler in Canada – ” I love black and white photos…so I thought it would be a fun idea to have a sea of them this week.  Or, just have black and/or white predominantly in your image.  It’s up to you! ”

Oh, I too love Black & White images, I had so many, many ideas for this one :) I called on my Daughter Aimilee, who was more than happy to model my new  Poppy & Rose Full Length Tutu…


Aimilee who is only 7 had to sit on a bar stool, so I could capture the length of the Tutu.


and of course the dogs could not be left out….

I think my Girls are all getting too used to being in front of the camera, it was hard to get a shot without the dogs, they kept positioning themselves right where I would want them!!




We had such a great Girls morning shooting this week, and we didn’t eve have to leave our back-yard :) now don’t forget this is a blog ring, so starting with Guilford Pet Photographer, Kathryn Schauer Photography, follow the links all the way around until you get back here. It will be great to see what everyone comes up with this week!



  1. Thanks Everyone, I have had my eye on the Tutu for a while and stayed up really late one night for a spot FB sale…worth every lost minute of sleep 😉
