Pooches: On Family Photoshoots with Dogs

Though I think if we did, we would have figured out some way to include the pups in our photos. 
Because they are our little family.

As luck would have it, Miss M and Mr B asked to be Mr. & Miss July for this year's Unexpected Pitbull Calendar (see our page here!), which became extra lucky because this meant we were able to have photoshoot with a professional pet photographer.

We were beyond excited to work with Sebastian from Sparenga Photography. Besides being fun and easy to work with, we liked that he was able to capture the pups' personalities so well. Photographing dogs is so different than photographing people, and so often dogs are just seen as an accessory in the photo. I think getting our family photos with a pet photographer made them turn out that much better. (We don't like our faces allover the Internet, so we are purposely sharing photos that don't show as much of us.)

We had a couple of location changes, including downtown:

In our home:

And on the lakefront, showing their personalities so well:

We loved all of the photos, especially since we have so few photos of all of us together.

These are amazing!! How lucky -- we'd love to get some photos by a pro! The one of the 4 of you looks photoshopped in front of that beautiful skyline! And the bottom-right photo of the couch! And that last photo!! Gimme a break -- love!

We pre-ordered our calendar! We can't wait until July to see these beautiful mugs in our kitchen!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! My dad is a professional photographer, so I have grown up with a huge appreciation for photos, especially ones of family. :)

How do you have 2 photogenic dogs, I don't get how that is possible. I have have one who takes great photos and one who is part big foot (has to be a big foot dog since all of her photos come out blurry).

Beautiful photos...beautiful family!
