oscar and me

We were shooting Tori and Austin’s day-after portraits.  Oscar was a fantastic assistant, keeping guard for me us at the bottom.   It’s unfortunate that I make this face when taking pictures, especially  because I know I’m prematurely aging my face with all of that squinting! *sigh*

OK, we are total birds-of-a-feather slackers lately, we know.  And we’re sorry.  Someone invent a teletransport machine for us and we’ll have so much more time for blogging, I promise.  In the meantime, enjoy this lovely family photo taken this morning.  Bean really enjoys her personal space. Oscar really enjoys cuddling.  It’s pretty awesome. 


Here’s the man you’ve been waiting to see.  Oscar Mora-Yates: Mexican street dog turned Los Angeles rockstar. Notice how his name doesn’t have the same ring to it as Ruca Bean Yates-Mora does.  He needs a middle name, and we need your help choosing one.  A little bit about Oscar: he likes to jump, groan, sleep, mount RBYM, wrestle, stumble over his ginormous paws, and eat kibbles.  He’s a sweet guy who enjoys the simple things in life, and he needs a name that reflects this.  Help us help Oscar.
