Alyssa and Matt asked if they could do a “family” engagement session. I knew right away they wanted to include their dogs in the shoot. I think this is a great idea! An important aspect of every portrait session that I photograph is to showcase the lives of my subject in the moment. Creating an image that they will someday look back on fondly is my goal. Whether it’s a dog, a meaningful location, or just the area that they currently live in. Things change, life happens, people move, nothing ever stands still. To capture a moment in time, a small slice of someone’s life is priceless. Alyssa and Matt got the “family” photo they had hoped for.
