As much as dogs are considered part of the family, I’m always amazed at how many back-to-school family photos never include them!
While the focus is, naturally, on capturing your children as they gear up for another year of school, forgetting to include your furry family members is a big mistake.
Not only are dogs emotionally sensitive (they absolutely sense that something is changing when your kids pack up and head back to class), but their presence defines so much of your children’s childhoods.
While many of my past clients have requested that our photoshoots focus on just the dogs, it’s always fun when the entire family gets involved – especially children! To be able to capture that unique bond between children and their dogs is so special to me.
It’s part of my job that I cherish and I love being able to create these memories for families.
Fall is a great time to take back-to-school photos not just because kids are getting ready to fill their backpacks again, but because the natural scenery is just beautiful – and in some places, it’s truly breathtaking!
From autumn’s colorful foliage to that unique light you only get this time of year, it really is the perfect season to get the whole family together – dogs included!
When getting ready to schedule a back-to-school photoshoot with me, keep in mind that one of the best places you can do it is right at your own home.
