A couple of months back I met makeup artist and animal lover Mai-ly through makeup artist pal, Rachel Lane. In two different sessions we shot her with her pet guinea pig Sweet Pea, and then her with her ball python Mowgli. The first shoot was around Halloween time and was a basic natural light portrait session but at some point I learned that guinea pig costumes are a thing. The second shoot was about two weeks ago and we did a pet portrait session but emphasized on body-positivity.
No worries, no pets were harmed or stressed during either session.
