I am always a little hesitant to photograph families with their dogs. This is funny since photographing toddlers and newborns has its own set of variables, but I still find them easier to work with than puppies. There are some tricks that work pretty consistently with kids, like tickling. While this usually results in a smiling giggly toddler, it does not produce the same result with dogs... Kim, Andy, and their two adorable golden doodles are moving and they wanted a few photos of the four of them in their beloved city to help bring their Seattle memories to their new spot. A grey or rainy day might have proved to be a more accurate memory of Seattle, but we were lucky to shoot on a beautiful sunny evening with the skyline shining in all its glory.
I was happily surprised at how well the shoot went and I even love the photos of both dogs tugging on their leashes in opposite directions, adding a little chaos to the scene. Seems like an accurate representation of a trip to the park with two dogs, right?!
