Outdoor family photography session with pet can be an important ‘milestone’ for many. To some, it marks a new adventure in their life with the addition of a pet in the family. Having a pet is a major commitment, somewhat akin to adopting a baby or another family member. I had the privilege recently to conduct a photo-shoot for Paul and Rachel, long time friends who I went scuba diving almost a decade ago. It was a joyous occasion to shoot them with their 4.5 months old cute and adorable pedigree French Bull puppy, affectionately named Loki.
Photographing portrait with pets, especially little puppies, can mean a significant moment as the owners want to preserve the time when their pet is at its cutest.
Pets bring joy to a couple relationship and can be a source of bonding, just like children. Owners frequently identify themselves as “papa’ or “mama” to their pet.
Pet naturally lit up their owner’s smile, as you can see in the picture.
Palm and paw moment, when human and animal are fated to be united through providence. There is so many types of dogs out there, to feel a natural liking and bond to the animal and bring it to a forever home, take destiny too.
A dog’s affection and love for its owner is unconditional.
Loki raring to run at the Gardens by the Bay grass patch. Such is the excitement and energy of a little puppy.
A look of determination on Loki. Eager to get places in a hurry.
One of the happiest puppies around. Glad I managed to capture that expression. It was no mean feat as Loki was really zipping around.
A great conclusion to a fun photo session. The weather was scorching hot and humid but it was Loki that melted my heart.
