Dog portraits are great solo but sometimes it’s better together. Meaning if you have more than one dog and they get along why not get a portrait of the two (or three) of them together?
Now maybe you have more than one dog and you want to be in the portrait with them. That is very doable. Unless they’re super well trained and behaved and maybe a little tired it will take a bit of time to achieve this so have patience. Often times I find that the dogs are doing just fine but it’s the people that are super stressed about the process. They’ve overly worried that their dogs aren’t performing as they should. After all they think “they’re so well behaved at home!” Well they probably are but you’re now in a studio that they’ve maybe been in once before—hence the reason we stress a pre-session consultation with you and your dog(s) so they can get to know the place.
It’s very important for the owners to realize that just like children acting out=—dogs sometimes do as well. Or they’re just very excited and maybe a little afraid of this new place and new concept of posing for a camera. That’s why we work with the dogs to get them calm and to achieve the pose with you that we can all be happy with. I often hear at the ordering session that they cannot believe we got the shots that we did. That’s because they’re looking at and stressing over their “children”—the dogs.
We love photographing dogs families together—both them alone as well as together with their owners. Have more than one dog and want to create a great memory that you can hang on your wall as art? Give us a call @ (719) 475-0160 and we’ll et the ball rolling.
