I'm going to the dogs:)
Fall of 2013 was the year of the dogs - ok probably not really but for my portrait business it was and I loved it. I tend to gravitate towards large (or multi generation) family portraits. I am sure it has to do with me being the youngest of 6 kids. So when clients inquire about bringing grandparents, cousins, etc. to shoots my policy is always "the more the merrier". I do tend to thrive in chaos. This year the additional family member in tow seemed to be of the four legged variety. Now I will not claim to specialize in pet photography (but can recommend some fab photogs whose specialty that is) but I love, love, love to add the family pet in to the mix. Nothing adds emotion to a shoot like seeing how everyone attends to each other.
The Nash family is blessed in many ways - one of which is the love to and from their "little girl" Casey! She was up for the running, sitting, loving and general silliness of the session. This was at the end of the shoot and although Kathy, Bill, Owen and Connor were up for more I swear she is looking over her shoulder and thinking 'really Jodie, enough of this, can I just go chase the ducks?'
So as we all sit inside shivering I hope your feet or lap are a little warmer with a furry friend. As I type I have Jäger (Boxer not beverage) under my desk and Smokey (silly gray kitty) on my lap:)
