Pig Paparazzo

It was a dreary rainy day on Sunday.  (Which we really needed - the rain was lovely.)  But I spent a cheery afternoon wrangling guinea pigs for Joey of Salem Pet Photography.

Joey breezed in with scenery, lighting and camera.  Then we dug through my sewing room for extra props.  I was excited to use my Singer 99 as background.  What fun!

Boadicea and Wedgwood suprised Joey by returning home by themselves in-between takes.  I would simply put them on the floor and they'd trot back to the cage and up the ramp.  Well, most of the time.  Wedgie considered exploring more of the living room rather than a direct trip home.

Photographer and guinea pig take a quick break
Boadi and Wedg were well behaved, mostly facing the camera and limiting their taste-testing of the scenery.  Turns out Wedgwood is a camera ham and quite charming.  Boadi mostly loafed and looked cute.  They were patient through several changes of scenery.  Modeling must be hard work, because they sacked out all evening.

Joey was a whirlwind of activity.  I was impressed with how quickly she set up and switched backdrops.  I believe all of us, pigs and people, had an enjoyable time.

Now you're saying - enough photos of the photographer - how about Boadicea and Wedgwood!  I'll be selecting some of my favorites (so hard to do!) and posting them soon.  But if you can't wait to see the cuteness, head to Facebook:  Two Crafty Pigaroos.  Also drop by Joey's album of adoptable guinea pigs at the Nevins Farm MSPCA shelter:  Autumn Pigaroos.
