    Thanks Denise and Jayson. Setup was pretty simple. I used one flash with a shoot through umbrella setup at camera left about 45 degrees and shooting downward at about 30 degrees. I had a DIY reflector setup at camera right. I used my 5D2 and 70-200 lens. Shot at f/8-f/11 most of the time at 1/160 and ISO 100. Denise I took your advice on the basket shot, but we did it with a little twist. I think it came out pretty well .

    We used a black coat on a chair for the background and surface.

    I served a month as the pet photographer at petco and petsmart. Squeaky toys are a must have plus you need to practice doing a unique , loud sound that can get there attention. I was not allowed to keep the digital images so when I got done uploading them they were dumped. These just so happened to be left from my last shoot. Props are the biggest thing you can do to make for some cute photos.
