6 Grown ups, 1 baby and 5 dogs! Bow Wow!!! {Az Family and Pet Photographer}


When Gia asked to me to do a “desert themed” shoot with 6 adults, baby Evan and 5 dogs, I said yes and then I began to panic a little.  Well, maybe a LOT.


Of course it was a chance to squeeze Evans cheeks and listen to his giggle, but 5 dogs???!!!  The most I had done together at once was two.  But, as I began to think about it, I realized dogs are like kids.  They are easily distracted and they like treats.  So I just had to make my distractions  better than running children, ducks, bugs and all the smells of the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch.  Squeaky toys did the trick and the parents brought the treats.  The other plus is, if the dog is at least facing forward, we consider that a smile.  If they are facing forward and actually looking in the direction of the camera, well that would be like a gigantic giggle.  So we got a handful of smiles and a few giggles and not just from the dogs.  These guys have the best contagious laughs.  And don’t even get me started on baby Evan—his mama sure knows how to make him laugh!   Ah, Ah, Ahhhhhh,  Achoooo!

I think I need to show just a couple of the out takes from this shoot just so that we can fully appreciate the magnitude of the beautiful shots we got!





Thank you Gia, Doug, Evan, Chato & Baxter.

Thank you Tim, Pam and Harley.

Thank you Collin, Kaley, Willy & Olive.

I think it was worth it, don’t you?
