Happy Friday Peeps! So as another week rolls to an end I think about all the cool things that have happened lately like getting to meet and shoot some incredible people, I wonder who else is out there I have yet to connect with and photograph? And what ideas will they have about the look and feel of the images they want me to create? Do they want to be photographed with their partner, children, best friend? Or maybe they want some fresh, modern images for their website? Maybe someone needs a special event covered or are planning an intimate wedding with just their closest family and friends and want all the raw and candid moments captured in an unobtrusive way???? These are the things I wonder about and look forward to. And wherever these people are, I hope our paths cross soon! Have a great weekend y'all 😀😀😀.

"My husband, Jason, went to a pet store 12 years ago to look into getting a fish. He lived in an apartment and knew he couldn't have a dog because he didn't feel right about not having a back yard and lived on the 3rd floor, etc. But, he wandered over to the dog section anyway. You know, just to have a peek. The pet store had some kind of event where the full breed dogs were being shown off and out of their cages playing with shoppers. Angel, as a mix, wasn't included and the only dog still in her cage. Jason picked her up and he says she immediately fell asleep on his shoulder. He walked around the store and she continued to snooze away. He looked at fish, priced them out, found an aquarium... still, zzzzz. He came home with a dog. We've had her for 12 years. And she's our girl. The BEST girl." // I absolutely love that story--you can tell Angel has been well loved by her family. ❤️ #thetotopackage

“Girl in Beret" oil on canvas, 16 x 20 in. (2005) by Michael D. Koch. Portrait of model, made during my studies with Frank Mason at the #artstudentsleague . This is only in photo now, repainted it later over and over into something unrecognizable, should have left this version, liked it more, learned a lesson. #portrait #portraiture #oilpainting #portaitpainting #modelportrait #contemporaryart #frankmason #womaninberet #brunettemodel #frankherbertmason #lifepainting #fashion #portraitart #girlinberet #contemporaryrealism #painting #contemporarypainting #contemporaryportrait #impressionism #newyorkmodel #modernportrait #portraiture #figurepainting #artoftheday #figurative #painterlyrealism #classicalpainting #classicalrealism #koch
