When clients ask me if they can include their pet in the family portraits I always say “Yes”! Even though I am not always super comfortable around pets (and I am getting better at it :)) I realize the importance of including pets in Family Portraits. They are an important part of the family, and it’s always more fun for the kids and makes the Photo Shoot more relaxed with a pet dog or cat around. Everyone interacts with or wants to hold them, and their furry cuteness adds another element to the portraits.
I love the detail in the girl’s hair with her beautiful braid! Small attention to detail makes such a big difference in the portraits. I think my favorite photograph from this Photo Shoot is the mother-daughter shot and of course the close-up of the kids holding their dog. You can bet that it is their favorite too, and the one they will want to put up on the wall in their room!
