My dog won’t sit still!

I hear it quite often: “I’d love to get professional photos of my dog, but I don’t think it’s possible. He’s too hyper, too shy, fearful of strangers, doesn’t know basic commands, is afraid of cameras, never sits still…etc.”

Everyone worries how their pup will perform during a photo session. It’s a common concern regardless of a dog’s personality, age or training level. The good news is that your dog doesn’t need to be highly trained, doesn’t need to be off-leash, doesn’t even need to be super-friendly with strangers. There’s no pressure to perform. His or her only job is to be a dog. It’s my job to capture your dog’s personality in a way that will leave you with lasting memories of your special little fur-friend.

Here’s before and after images of my friends, Bailey and Beau.

First photo – straight out of camera, both on a leash being held by their person.

Second photo – leashes, owner, and other distractions removed, color and lighting adjusted to bring more attention to Bailey and Beau.
