One question I receive often from families is if they may bring their dog(s) along for the photo session. My answer? A resounding YUP, with some conditions!

Pup isn’t allowed in the studio, so while we are going through wardrobe, clients will need to plan to have someone old enough to man the pup in the car. Typically, the husband will stay with the pupper while Mom and I select wardrobe for the family, and then we have Dad dress while everyone is getting loaded up to head to the field.

Pup will need to be put in a secure location when no in the photos with you. Some suggestions are in the car with the windows down or the car on (pending weather, of course!) or bringing someone with you that can assist with leashing pup while we’re doing other family shots!
