It's always fun to get a pair of animals in the studio. Capturing their portraits individually as well as their relationship with each other is a great gift for a family. In this session, we had a two wonderful German Shorthaired Pointers, 9 month old Omar and his sibling, 3 month old Onyx.
These dogs were such a joy to photograph, not only because they are adorable puppies, but because young dogs often react very favorably to the newness of a photo session. Their natural curiosity and innocence make for beautiful expressions of alertness and wonder. These two beauties were no exception. Well into their obedience training, they did their sits like champs.
After some freeform playtime and lots of joyful mouthing with each other, we got out the dog bed and prepped for the coveted image of them together. While getting a pretty pose of them on the bed was tricky (all they wanted to do was play), we stuck to it. The result, an adorable image the babies together that mom will be able to enjoy long after they've grown up.
The final collection included an array of 8x10s and 8x8 prints along with a beautiful Canvas Wall Art. A sweet celebration of these new family members.
