Engagement Portraits and Pet Photography

It's no secret that I love dogs. With spring just around the corner, I expect a lot of people to be dusting off the ole leash and heading to the park with their furry babies, and hopefully some of them will be giving me a call so they can get some sweet portraits done. 

In fact, my ideal client is the one who asks me, "Is it okay if I bring my dog?"

Let me be clear: it is not okay if you don't bring your dog. Yes. Bring the dog. Always.

I'm compelled to share some photos I took in Florida for a past wedding client, Brittany and Kelsey, because they were the embodiment of what I look for in a client. Happy, laid back, and they have a dog. His name is Gator, by the way. And not it's not weird that I always remember their names.

Just recently I had a client ask me if they could bring their dog, Ruby, to their session at Red Rocks just outside of Denver. (That's where I live now, by the way. I'm also booking spring portrait sessions, so get on that.) 

"Ruby is a little skittish and shy at first," they said. The moment I met Ruby, I was greeted with licks to the face and paws on my shoulders in a beautiful puppy-hug embrace, which makes perfect sense to me because dogs are my people, man. Yea, that really happened. Look at this beauty!

 Sweet Ruby led the pack at Red Rocks Trail in Denver, Colorado. This purebred boxer was every bit her breed. She was shy at first, but eventually she allowed me to take her portrait. Turns out, she’s a total ham!
