Family photographer

After photographing and designing for print publications, I branched out in 2007 and founded Buddy and Bug Photography with a focus on child and family portraiture.

In 2014, my daughter - like every other girl in America - was obsessed with the Disney-hit, Frozen, and I wanted to create a session to capture her Frozen excitement. That is when I first thought of having reindeer mini sessions - question was, I didn't know if they were real! After some research and to my surprise, I discovered reindeer were real and a reindeer rancher lived near me.

With Christmas approaching, I expanded the concept beyond "Frozen," seeking to capture an essence of the holidays often ignored (why should Santa get all the glory when the reindeer do a lot of the work *wink*). My reindeer rancher told me he had never been used his reindeer in professional photo sessions, but it was an instant hit and within hours of posting my photos, photographers began contacting me and asking me to create overlays of my reindeer to sell.

At that time, I had not yet discovered the world of creating digital overlays. It took me two years to open an Etsy store, but I finally got around to it. Some of the listings include a preview of the png file on the top and the original image of the live reindeer on the bottom. I included the original image to give some perspective on size, lighting, etc.

I am so appreciative all of the photographers who supported me and encouraged me to try this new venture. I have recently began expanding my overlay collections. I hope you love the files, and I would love to see the images you produce! ~ Marianne
