I know that your pets are part of your family, and you may want to include them in family portraits. I love this! Pets are, indeed, important family members, with special bonds and unique personalities. I am always open to families incorporating pets into family portrait sessions. Of course, it helps if they’re well behaved – and well-groomed – but they also can just be themselves. Just like any other kind of family, sessions with pets are done outdoors and I encourage fun, relaxed, and authentic interactions. Pets make for playful and dynamic portrait sessions, so be ready for anything!
