Zoey the dog, Kathy and Steve

I recently enjoyed photographing Zoey the dog in the home of Kathy and Steve.   It is especially fun to photograph people in their own home.  And Zoey is a cute dog that revealed some fun personality.   I felt that she deserved some special attention, and so I created this computer-enhanced, graphically designed painting of Zoey with her owners in the background.   Scroll to the next image to see the original photograph.   I like this painting and will be showcasing more of what I can do in future days and weeks.

So which do you like better, the painting or the photograph?

I am a firm believer that everyone should have some great photography of themselves (OK, I may have a selfish motive in saying that but it is still true).   Kathy and Steve were willing to take that step.   This is not a candid snapshot; it is a carefully crafted portrait that complements their relationship, their personality, and style.

The following are a few more of my favorite images from my time with Kathy, Steve, and Zoey.

avatar About Jim

I love photography, and I've found that Madison is a beautiful city in which to shoot. The Wisconsin Capitol, State Street, Monona Terrace, Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Allen Centennial Gardens, Henry Vilas Park, and the Arboretum are just some of the many beautiful places one can go for gorgeous outdoor pictures.

I am a full-time photographer. I enjoy many kinds of photography, as you can see on this web site. In my storefront studio I offer portrait photography in a setting that allows me to control the light and backgrounds.

I work both in studio and on location to provide creative personal photography and videography for weddings, businesses, and families. James Studio offers a classic look with a creative flair!


  1. I do like the painted pic!
