Photographing this handsome teenager and his beautiful yellow Labrador was a lot of fun. These were a surprise Christmas gift for some family members, so we had to keep the whole thing under wraps until after Christmas. The Lab, whose name is Baxter, was definitely an active boy during the photo shoot. It took a bit of bribing and some commands of 'sit and stay' from Mom and I to get him to cooperate. I'm pretty sure the doggie treats helped out a lot! But he was a really good boy (and so was his teenage buddy!). Check out these two handsome young fellows!
Family generation photo sessions are something I love to photograph. When I get can three or more generations in one photo, it makes the session special for me.
Wondering why it means so much to me?
Mainly because I love the photos I have of myself, my mom, and my grandma. There aren't a lot of them, so cherish the ones I do have. Even if it's just snap shot (like the one from my bridal luncheon many moons ago), I love it. My grandma is getting older; she turned 93 this year. And as much I want her to stay around for awhile longer, there's no promise she will. So I make every effort to hold onto those precious memories I have of her.
I photographed three generations in this photo session, and I know this family will cherish them for some time to come. Plus, I was able to photograph a Labradoodle who was huge but the sweetest dog!
Nothing quite like holding up/throwing a wet tennis ball to get a dog's attention with a camera in the other! It was definitely not a first and I'm sure won't be the last! Enjoy this family photo session!
