What great smiling faces!

Capturing children with their beloved dog is always a pleasure and an opportunity for some fun portraits that mom, dad and the relative will love and enjoy.

I chose to do a tight close-up on the 3 of them as a strong image with their dog as the centerpiece of the portrait and the girls on each side of their dog to hold on tight and smile.

I like a simple, non distracting background that does not detract from the subjects. These type of portraits tend to be high energy efforts and the girls needed lots of encouragement and the result was they did a great job both smiling and controlling their dog!
