It is my opinion that . . .
Every pet owner needs to have
a picture of themselves with their pet.
If you have a pet session with me, just expect me to ask you if I can take a few shots with you in them as well. (You can say, no of course and that's fine, but I feel so strongly about it, that I have to ask.)
It's the candid shots that I love the most. The ones where the people don't realize I'm photographing them. The images are so beautiful because they are so real - No cheesy grins, no self-conscious smiles, just . . . real . . . genuine . . . heart (and that's not just the dogs I'm talking about). ;O)
How many times have I heard someone say, I wish I had a picture with my dog before she passed away, or I wish I had a picture of my dog and I before he got sick. It happens all the time because time really does fly. If you are planning to have pictures taken and you plan to have your pet be a part of them, fantastic! If you don't have plans for a professional session then when you're snuggling with your pet on the couch and watching tv have a family member snap a picture of the two of you. Or, the next time you go out to play fetch ask a friend to take your picture in the yard. If you go to an event like, oh lets say a dog swim . . . document it! You'll be so glad you did. ;O)
Project 52 is a blog circle so head over to Charlotte NC based dog photographer Kim with BARKography. You can click from one blog to the next until you end up right back here.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Take a picture or a "me and my pet selfie!" (And then don't forget to print it out or back it up somewhere until you can.) ;O)
