Serenity the Scorpion

rezlife is starting a new series after spring break entitled ‘Grosser than Gross.’ My first stab at art direction for this series was a little too dark, so I decided to go with a cute and cuddly, albeit deadly scorpion named Serenity.

Cats!

Yesterday Megan and I went over to Brandon and Janelle Gregory’s house for dinner and game night. I had been taking some pictures elsewhere before we arrived, and once I got there I though it might be fun to get some pics of their cats, Sherlock, Frannie and Zooey.
