How’s this for a dream job? You’re a young American living in Rome, photographing weddings, families, and — best of all — pets for a living. Such is the lucky life of Stephanie Millner, whose gorgeous studio images of pets and their people helped garner her the Diamond Photographer of the Year award for 2010. I love the minimal nature of her studio shots, which, despite the simplicity of setting, still capture so much doggie emotion and personality.
Stephanie is currently working on a photography book called Furballs, which will feature dogs adopted from animal shelters. Proceeds from Furballs will be donated back to community shelters to help adoptable animals looking for forever homes.
