As mentioned in the previous post, when I was taking portraits of Emily and Tim, they wanted to get some with their dogs – Lemon and Romeo. While I’ve been taking photos of Emma (the cat) and Sidney (the box turtle) for years, I don’t usually get the chance to take pictures of other people’s pets. Lucky for me, Romeo and Lemon are were completely willing and adorable. Romeo, the black dog, was pretty content to hang out wherever we plopped him and does this very cute head tilt thing without us even asking. Lemon, the white one, was really attentive for his little tennis ball, but was a lot more energetic and kept me on my toes. As an animal person myself, I really get how pets are part of a family and I think having them in family portraits is a great way to show the personalities of the animals as well as their owners. It was a lot of fun to shoot Lemon and Romeo and I’m looking forward to doing more pet portraits in the future!
