Their full names are Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Vincent Atticus but their friends call them Ruthie and Vincent. Sound familiar? It probably won't surprise you that their mom is an attorney who fights for animal rights with the Texas Humane Legislation Network. THLN is a terrific organization and I love the fact that staff is photographed with their pets on the website.
Christine needed a new headshot with her cats so came into the studio for that along with a portrait session for Ruthie and Vincent. When I saw Ruthie's beautiful coloring, I knew I wanted to photograph her on gray; I love a tone on tone color palette.
This week's theme in the Pet Photography 52 Week Project is "gray" so I knew immediately that I wanted to share the images from this special session. Christine not only fights for animal rights, she's also active in animal rescue. Ruthie is a rescue cat and Vincent was a foster fail who had to have a front leg amputated. After nursing him through that, she couldn't let him go. Now these two are thick as thieves and enjoy a life of comfort and love.
