Having a portrait with your family pets is not as crazy as it sounds. Pets are family. Of course, some are more compliant than others though. If I could get my cat to sit still for half a second I’d love to have her in a family portrait with me.
Emily has it easy with her gorgeous labrador Kevin. He’s still a puppy, but he is trained well and compliant. And he clearly adores Emily. Kevin loves to give Emily hugs, proving the song by The Fauves to be true, “Dogs are the best people”.
Kevin was so super excited for our sunset beach walk. It was warm (ish) the waves were crashing and there were two humans chasing around after him. What more could a dog want? Treats I guess, but hey we had a blast on the beach.
Why not include your family pets in your next portraits?
