Your Pup’s Portrait – and other critters

Almost  two years ago, our beloved dog Boughchieux (pronounced bough cho)became very ill and we were facing a horrible decision that every pet lover dreads – saying goodbye.    We had one more round of medication to try before that decision was made.  So, what did we do?  We got the camera out, set up the studio and had a photo session that focused around our sweet, yellow lab.


Fortunately, the medication worked and our dear friend is still with us.  However, I feel so blessed that we have images of the dog not only from that session; but from the many sessions he has had since we brought him home.  By the way, our cat has been photographed just as much.

Our animals are truly part of our family.  As I write this, the cat is sleeping quietly next to me on the desk.  I have wandered into the living room to see my daughter using the dog as a pillow while she reads.   And neither animal misses family movie night.


Capturing the relationships that we have with our beloved pets is just as important as capturing the relationships between three siblings, or a daddy and his little girl.

The expressions are priceless and have become some of my favorite family images.  This month, let’s focus on your family pet for his or her very own portrait session.  All family members are welcome to join the fun as we spend an hour playing in the studio.
