One reason why you should ALWAYS work with children and animals.

Back to blog

We have recently been getting more and more requests from our clients asking whether they might be able to bring in the four legged members of their family for a family portrait shoot.  As we have started to photograph more and more pets as part of the family shoot it has opened up a whole new focus for our photography.  Pets are such an important part of every family so is seems only right to include them in the family portrait, which will be up on your wall for years to come.

Toddler & Dog sat on vintage suitcase

A couple of weeks ago we spoke with Gemma who had heard about us from her membership at Cupcake in Putney.  She was very keen to book in a shoot for her 16 month old son who is at such a great age.  She then said that she “was super excited when I received your email about including dogs.”  (They have a 5 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Matilda who is absolutely beautiful.)

Gemma brought her little boy and Matilda in for their shoot with our photographer Hollie.  We all feel in love with them both as they came into the studio.  Her little boy was super smiley and Hollie adored his “fro”.  Matilda acted like his big sister and was so well behaved.  They both followed instructions beautifully and Hollie captured some adorable images.

Gemma said that “Hollie was an absolute star, she was very accommodating and professional”.  The whole shoot was “fun, relaxed and perfect and there was a lovely fun atmosphere throughout the hour of the shoot.”
