This is Vanessa, my daughter's almost 4 year old guinea pig. (Well, actually one of two guinea pigs. Molly will have her session another day!) Vanessa is such a hoot. (She's an Abyssinian guinea pig, by the way.) I admit, when my daughter came to me at age 11 and told me she wanted a guinea pig (or two), I went "Eewww." I had no idea that they would be such sweet, sociable pets. Educational too--my daughter created a guinea pig website on her own when she was 11. (Is it me, or does Vanessa look just a little like a camel??   I think that's part of her charm.) Anyway, I'm very happy today, because my 50mm 1.8 lens came back from repair this afternoon, and I was able to take some shots of Vanessa with it.

Oh it's so nice when you get a lens or get one back! :)

Vanessa is so precious - we used to have guinea pigs they are so fun and cute! Not to mention soft!

Funny you mentioned she looked like a little camel because when I first saw the thumbnail of the photo I actually thought it was a bison! I might have to let my daughter get a guinea pig.

Yeah, I see the "camel". A cute one too! Glad you got your lens back.

Vanessa is too cute! My son wants a hampster... Still trying to decide on that as the cats might have a hay day if it ever got out!

Vanessa is too cute, but I'm still a fan of Lucy.

Camera Info

Most of these have been shot with a Nikon D200. I have two lenses--the 18-135mm kit lens and a 50mm 1.8. I also occasionally use a Canon Powershot A540 point and shoot. (And a few of them are camera phone pictures!)
