George & Friends: a Springtime Family Portrait Session

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful Spring day, or a lovelier property, for our photography session.  Because this session would include two people, three dogs, and whichever outdoor cats decided to make an appearance, I knew that we had no time to waste, so I dove right in, with the help of my trusty colleague/employee/friend, Jess, who is a talented photographer in his own right.

George, a handsome Tibetan terrier, was a ham for the camera!  He would pose, run, and play with equal enthusiasm.  He’s just happy, and it’s impossible to be around him for long without feeling happy, too.

Here is George posing and surveying his domain:

George loves to be loved, so it doesn’t take much encouragement for him to approach for some play and petting, with a big smile on his face:

I knew when I met George and saw his beautiful coat that he would look fabulous running.  He runs with such joy and exuberance!

There were so many beautiful spots on the property, and George ran around to all of them.  I thought he looked really cool sitting on this chair in the garden.

Along with George, there was Hank, a gorgeous senior dog.  His hearing isn’t the best, so we had to be creative in getting his attention for the camera, but he is also incredibly photogenic.

Then there’s Peanut.  Peanut is deaf, and shy with strangers, so I had to follow him around and look for the right moments to photograph him.

Two of the three outdoor cats made a brief appearance, and I had to be quick to photograph them, but they were both very beautiful.

As tricky as it was to run around after all the animals, I think it was actually harder to wrangle the people, but their love and affection for each other came through immediately.
