From the land before masks: several years ago I had this really fun and unique family portrait session with the Joneses. When they said they wanted their family pet in the photograph, I figured they meant a dog! I’m glad I was able to capture for posterity this family and their equestrian friends. Portraits with animals can be difficult but they’re always so fun and I have developed techniques to work with dogs and other pets. Pets are just as much a member of the family as anyone else so it’s important to include them in the family portrait. Although I don’t think I’ll be able to have a horse in the studio!
