Our concept of family naturally includes our spouse, mother and father, children, aunts, uncles and in-laws. However, sometimes we also consider our pets to be a part of the family, even to the point that we would like them to be a part of our family photos! Sometimes, we even want them to be a part of our engagement and wedding photos too! As a professional photographer, I have on many occasions done photo shoots with families and their pets or even a single owner and his or her pet. It can be a challenge to take great photos with pets because they don't even know they are in a photo shoot! Nevertheless, I am always very patient and get the job done correctly and to the satisfaction of my clients! This couple in these photos wanted an engagement photo shoot and they brought their dog along for the photo. I have to say that their dog was exceptionally easy to work with. Maybe I should take back what I wrote earlier because this dog seemed like he know he was getting photographed! So whether it be family photography, engagement photography, wedding photography, individual portraits, or any other type of portrait, pets are welcome with Sviatlana Photography!
