I talk a lot about people/pet portraits and how much my clients love their portraits. They are the type of portraits that are very rewarding to set up and to encourage the clients while they are working with their dogs while smiling and looking relaxed at the camera. In this portrait the couple did a great job of corralling their dogs and smiling nicely at the camera. As with all my portrait sessions I give subtle directions to the couple while taking a number of poses as the action is going on. It is critical to capture a number of images while the best poses are happening because sooner or later the poses will fall apart as the restless and active dogs will want out.
