We love our fur babies – dogs, cats, smaller beasts – they are family as much so, maybe sometimes more so, than family : ) Photographing people and pets together can be….delightfully challenging. And, like children, getting pets to look at the camera all at the same time, and smile, requires tips, tricks, and treats. Oh, yes, and patience. Meet Rachel, Jon, Gus, Crusher and Squirt (can you guess who is who?). A family of five who embodies puppy love. And because I just had to, I thought I’d include a few outtakes, so you can see it’s not always “one shot” perfection in this profession.
