Remembrance Sessions : Pet Photography with extra meaning
Wednesday, July 23, 2014 11:43AM

Good photographers will capture emotion in every portrait --usually joy, love or even fear -- but it's rarely more emotionally charged than when there is an impending loss.  We often get calls from clients for "end of life photos"  when they have just received bad news from their veterinarian.  Most of the time they tell us they have had pet portraits on their to-do list for a long time, but kept forgetting.  Our beloved pets are with us such a short time compared to our human companions and the photographs need to tell the story of that relationship as completely as possible. It's a special joy when they are still active and feeling fairly normal.We recently visited a beautiful basset hound named Minnie, who has cancer. Her mom is taking some time off from work to be with her for her last days and I'm so glad we were able to capture a little sample of their love for each other. I know Minnie is surrounded by love and given every comfort.  I was honored to be her photographer.

We always love celebrating family milestones -- and we encourage grandparents to join the fun. So when we have the opportunity to do a family photo session with three generations it feels just a little more special. I know this little girl will treasure these portraits someday, just as I treasure every photo of my grandparents holding me.

If you've got a high school student in the family it's time to learn a little bit about the world of SENIOR Portraits. We just launched our new website dedicated just to Senior Portrait Photography  so all things SENIOR are top of mind right now.  First, Dallas area seniors often prefer to be photographed in the spring rather than the fall -- mostly because of the heat. This is opposite of many parts of the country where summer and fall is the busy season for senior photos.  Second thing to keep in mind is location.  Dallas area seniors love outdoor portraits -- although some of the private schools like Greenhill often require a studio shot of the graduate in a special outfit.  If your senior attends a private school you should check and see if professional portraits can be used in the yearbook, as some can. This is a big improvement over the run-of-the-mill school photos that are done on site at the schools. Kid at this age really love to express their individuality which is a little difficult with the "stand in line for a five second portrait" approach. Our third point is be prepared for some creativity and expression from your senior.  We photograph seniors with cars, cats, guitars, stuffed animals, basketballs, dogs, sheet music, trucks and just about anything else that you can imagine. That's really kind of the fun of it, right?  We ...

What are you wearing for YOUR senior portraits?

Here's a short list of some fun things you might want to bring for your senior portrait session:1. Something Mom likes.  You know she's got an opinion and since she's more than likely picking up the tab, be sure that you have at least one outfit that she loves.  It will save so many arguments later!2. Something super casual.  Most of our sessions are done at least partially outdoors and you'll want something that you can jump, climb or lay on the grass in. Your favorite jeans or shorts, maybe?3. The perfect dress.  Girls almost always have at least one dress (could be a PROM dress) that makes them feel sooooo good.  Something that is lightweight and flirty works great with a bit of a breeze!4. Layers.  Every outfit is more interesting in a photograph if there are layers involved.  So even a cute dress with a sweater or jean jacket or for guys a vest or a hoodie?  Or a shirt with a t-shirt or tank underneath?5. Something sentimental?  A lot of seniors want to bring something that has a lot of good memories for them.  Those special boots, your grandfather's hat, a special charm bracelet -- whatever it is, just be sure and tell us about it so we can make it a special focus during your session.We're preparing to launch our new senior portrait website, but until then, check out our SENIORS board on Pinterest for more fun ideas
