I photographed Paddy and Abigail recently in Los Angeles. These two handsome and playful Terrier mixes were incredibly charming with their scruffy fur and smiling faces and racing around the back yard at full speed and crashing into each other. When they weren't zooming around, Paddy and Abigail were sweet and gentle, and we had a wonderful LA pet photography session. The sky was perfectly overcast, creating my favorite quality of soft diffused natural light. I knew this LA pet photography session would result in a great group of black and white dog photos to show my clients- which will be happening next week at my studio. Here a few of my favorites.
I love watching families interact with their companions. The reason I never photograph in a studio is because I want to meet my clients where they are comfortable- physically and emotionally. In this way, I am giving them every opporunity to simply be themselves, and let their dogs be themselves. This is how natural moments happen during a dog photography session- by giving clients every reason to feel calm, unwatched, unposed.
