Using Local Color for Your Dog Portraits

Springtime flowering trees and summer blooms can make a colorful edition to your photographs. What a fun way to celebrate your dog. Just beware that your dog may decide to crush all the flowers.😊

Backyard blooms:

From forsythia to lilacs, to tulips or coneflowers. all of these can provide a wonderful backdrop for your dog and you never need to be far from home. if you spend the majority of time enjoying your yard and home with your pet, that is where the photo session would be best. We can utilize the color in your yard as well as fences or other objects to create a wonderful portrait.
