The story of a photo session

Not too long ago, I took a photo that was going to be displayed at a local business.  The family had a gorgeous French Bulldog and I was excited to go and shoot the photo.  The husband was on the front stoop with the dog when I pulled in.  I immediately noticed the front door and thought that would be a great place to take a photo.  However, the husband had another idea so I followed him to the backyard.  It was obvious he was proud of the backyard and commented that his wife worked very hard in how it appeared.  It was lovely.  Pots of plants, flowers, walkway, deck… everything was there.

When taking a photo of a pet, I always strive to take a unique photo where the pet will shine.  Below are some of my beginning shots and they were fine, but my gut said “it could be better”.

I finally suggested to the husband to try the front door.

THIS IS IT!!

This is the process I go thru in taking those special pet photos.  I hope to meet with the client before the shoot, but this time I wasn’t able.  But it worked out and the mounted photo was on display for several months at a local business whom I partner with.
