PORTRAIT TIPS

4 ITEMS TO BRING TO HELP INCORPORATE YOUR PET(S) IN YOUR FAMILY PHOTOS

NATURAL FAMILY PORTRAIT

If you are planning on bringing a pet to your session, we are more than happy to have you do that. We love furry friends and are always pleased to add them into our sessions! Here are some things you should remember to bring to ensure everything goes smoothly:

  1. A leash. This will help you keep your pet near to you and where you want him or her for photos (They aren’t just for dogs, you know). Be sure to bring a thinner leash, as they are easier to hide or edit out if necessary.

  2. A friend. Having someone come with you specifically to take care of your pet is ideal. This will help so that your pet is not running around all over the place or alone in the car, should you wish to take some photos without Fido.

  3. Treats. Treats are great bribery for your animal. It will help keep your pet still and focused on the camera.

  4. A favourite toy. The noisier the better. This is also a great tool to help keep your pet’s attention on me. We can also use it for a fun game and get some fun interaction shots.

 

PORTRAITS THAT WILL BE THE ENVY OF YOUR FRIENDS

FAMILY PORTRAITS

My youngest child is fourteen years old now and during my journey as a parent I have always been intrigued how quickly my three children have changed in their mannerisms, passions and interests. 

At younger ages this may be playing with a particular toy or as they get older it could be learning an instrument. It could be an expression that melts your heart but one day it is gone.

It’s interesting how incredibly valuable photographs that depict personality become. They hold immense value to myself and my wife because besides our memory that is all we have to remember specific traits that  our children had while growing up. 

Our children love looking back at these moments together. They get so much enjoyment from them. There is a lot of laughter that is for sure. 

Seeing the value of this style of photography I want myself and my photographers to create genuine memories for you and your family to enjoy. 

It can be the simplest little thing as an expression when your child does a certain activity, it could be a glance you receive when you give your child a hug. 

The best part about photographing this way is that it is very natural and fun, we laugh a lot and in no time you will have way too many fantastic memories to choose from.
