As a family photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have seen my fair shared of beloved pets! And I love photographing them all.... big or small, young and old! Just as the movie says "Must Love Dogs"; they are a part of the family and should be included in your captured memories!
There are so many reasons to include your dog in your session-
New Puppy! You just got this sweet new puppy and want to capture all of it's cuteness- puppy breath and all!
Include the WHOLE family! Dogs are part of the family too...it's fun to capture the interaction with everyone.
End of Life... these are heartbreaking sessions but are so beautiful.
In order for your dog to be camera ready, don't forget to take him/her to the groomer the day before our session! Also, when using a leash, we will do our best to hide it in the images but sometimes it's impossible.... in those cases, it's best to be prepared with a leash that matches your outfits! There are a lot of great options on Amazon, and you can even be a little "extra" with some of these fun colors and patterns. Why not even dress your male dog in a coordinating bowtie!!?!?! Or have them be part of a special announcement?
If you do choose to bring your dog to our session, please let me know ahead of time. Also don't forget the leash, treats and maybe even a squeaky toy. I can't think of any other pets other than dogs that I have photographed, but that's not to say I won't! Have an idea of how to incorporate your pets? Just let me know!
