Choosing the right park to have your photo session can be a challenge. Here are a few tips to consider when choosing your pet portrait session.
I will often receive an inquiry from clients who want portraits of their dog at the local park, but are hesitant. When this happens, I'll let them know, it is just like taking a walk in the park. I know some of the concerns these owners have and you may as well, so let me address some.
The plans for this photo session had been in the works for 5 months. I had initially planned on meeting and his family in August. His mom had contacted me wanting photos at their favorite place here in Central NY. The problem was that they work most of the year in Texas and are only here during the summer and holiday's. This is the home though that Hank loves. This is where he gets to run free on their property and explore, so this is where his mom wanted to have the session.
The weather outside promises to be frightful this weekend with a sudden drop from 50 degrees to a cold 9 degrees on Friday with high winds. We have a promise of at least a little snow to take us to Christmas. When you’re not sharing some Holiday cheer with friends and family, I can’t think of a better way to get warm and cozy than to snuggle up with the dog and watch some Holiday Christmas Dog movies with your best friend.
I believe that you don’t have to do much to make a big difference. A small kindness, word or gift can have a huge impact, not only on those you’re giving to, but on those who share your care. A donation to an animal organization not only helps the pets but also impacts the community and makes them feel less alone.
My last 2 dogs, after some training, were pretty well behaved when I asked them to sit and stay. Then I brought Declan home! He is my 'wild child'. He will sit and stay, until such time as he sees something more interesting. Then he is off to the races. And boy can he run. I definitely understand the frustration and anxiety a person may have when their dog is not listening to them.
