George Cooney Pet Photo Shoot

While photographing a band out at 11th Street Cowboy Bar, I stumbled across John and his uhm, interesting.. pet. Meet “George Cooney” – John’s domesticized pet raccoon! I absolutely adore raccoons.. my family raised two babies once, but they grew up and ran away eventually.. George is five years old and goes everywhere with John. I took a few photos of George there at 11th Street, but of course I offered John my card and asked if he’d consider bringing George in for a proper portrait.. and the next morning, he sure did!
George was excited by so much “stuff” in the camera room that it was hard to get a good one, but we did get a couple – hopefully they can come back and try a few more the next time John is in town! :)
