A Girl & Her Goat

Hey Guys!

It's been awhile since I've last posted, and I've missed it a lot! Life has been so crazy. Even though I took a break from the blog, I haven't stopped taking pictures. I've begun taking a lot more portraits of people. I'm happy that I've expanded my niche. I have really started to enjoy it!

 

About a week ago, one of my dear friends and I decided to do a shoot with her goat!

He was her bottle baby that she has raised into a sassy fluff ball of personality.

If he could talk, we would've had an earful of complaints, on how there was a frightening lack of treats on the photoshoot, when in reality there was more than enough.

He's basically just a big dog. Haha, fun fact, I was just told that he prefers brown paper napkins from McDonald's as his snack!

Bottle babies get very attached to the people who care for them, and you can definitely tell that, that is his momma.

I love taking pictures with animals! They give a very natural, candid, look to photos. No matter how hard you try, you will most likely not come out with a posed photo. They will do their own thing, whether you like it or not. So you might as well go with a loose idea of what you want, and just capture what happens, at least when a stubborn goat is involved, haha. And in all honesty, who wants a posed picture when you can have candid shots that show emotion and their natural interactions? This is, of course, just partaining to certain shoots. There are shoots where you want to have more styled photos.

They definitely love each other, so their interactions were very fun to capture.

Goat kisses!

I could not get over how cute they were while editing these. Their happiness is infectious!

This was the first shoot we got to have in the golden hour! The lighting was perfect, and I absolutely loved this old tin barn.

That's a wrap folks. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do! It was a blast.
