Some dogs just have the world by the tail.
Angus and Ben showed up at our Bangor studio in a shined up, sharp-looking, red Chevy truck; the kind of truck dogs dream about. Sporting a Santa hat and bandanas, these bounced into the house.
Usually it takes dogs, particularly two dogs, a few minutes to adjust to the studio. Not Angus and Ben. They came in, sniffed, and were ready to go to work posing for their portraits.
And that makes perfect sense.
As a photographer, of course I believe in the importance of professional pet portraits but not for the reason you would probably guess. I love the portraits I have, but it’s the ones I never had taken that have shown me just how special it is to have a portrait of a beloved pet.
Life is busy. Things happen. For many of us, the thought never even crosses our minds. I get it. But if you’ve read this far, I bet you’re wondering if it’s time to think about portraits for your favorite furbaby.
Here are some questions to help you decide.
From Boxer puppy to full grown beauty in a flash – Ruby’s Pet Portrait Session
Time flies and Miss Ruby is proof. Look at this gorgeous girl!
I swear it was only last week that her mum and dad brought her home to Bangor, a tiny Boxer puppy, all big feet and floppy. Visiting her for a good dose of puppy breath and cuteness was on my list of things to do. I swear. But it didn’t happen. Time got away from me. And now she is all grown up, nearly two years old.
Okay, these two adorables really live in Hermon, but they came to my Bangor studio Saturday morning and spread their wrinkly sunshine. There’s something about dogs with wrinkles, isn’t there?
