These photos were done a couple of months ago when Heidi was pregnant with Lola, and were taken by the talented Kellie from Romantic Events Photography, thanks Kel. We decided that we should get some nice pregnancy portraits with the dogs down the beach, which is easier said than done.
I do a lot of couple and family portraits with dogs and this was a good opportunity to be on the other side of the lens and get the perspective of the clients. It is always fun doing shoots with dogs as they are unpredictable, fun and don’t really care that you want to take their photo, they will do what they want. Sort of like toddlers!! And it was harder than I expected to try and pose how Kellie wanted us to with the dogs pulling in all directions and jumping on us.
I find it weird getting my photo taken and I am much more comfortable on the other side of the lens but I find it an invaluable experience to get my clients perspective as it helps me understand what they are feeling and helps me grow as a photographer. I found the same thing when I was photographed at my wedding. How can you expect to know what it is like for your clients if you haven’t done it yourself!
Although it can be more difficult doing a shoot with dogs it really does help to relax everyone and have a bit of fun during the shoot.
