A Little Dog Slobber Never Hurt Anyone

March 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Creating portraits of families with dogs is such an enjoyable experience.  When you bring a dog into the mix the normal rules of studio posing go right out the window.  I can put everyone where I want them but inevitably the dog will move or get restless and everything has to be repositioned.  So it ends up that wherever the dog sits generally determines how I pose everyone for the photograph.  And the best part about it is that nobody cares; the dog is almost always the center of attention anyway so we might as well make the photograph about him.

Below are a few images from a family I had in our Olympia studio recently.  The dog's name is Pete.  They love him - you can tell - and nobody minded a bit when he got tired of sitting there, shot up and started roaming around the studio.  I didn't even mind when he licked my lens.  A little dog slobber never hurt anyone.
