Whenever one of my couples asks to include their dog in the session or wedding, I always respond with an enthusiastic YES! If you have a dog as a pet, they are as much part of your family as a child would be. I know this to be true as I am the proud fur-mom of an adorable Llasa-Apso named Fenway. Fenway is always at our family sessions, it wouldn’t be our family without him and his wayward underbite. I find that animals create an extra dynamic (sometimes maybe too dynamic HA!) and allows my couples to relax and perhaps focus on something else other than the photography. They provide laughter and spontaneity and I absolutely love working with them. Bev and Mike’s pup is no exception. She gave us a run for our money and provided some excellent shots that I could never have set up on my own. My favourite is when Mike tried to kiss Bev and she came over, rested her head on Mike’s shoulder as if to say “I was your first girl, don’t forget me”…. I can’t wait for their winter 2015 wedding, I know it’s going to be great!
