I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable family of three at their home in Romford with their dog (and other pets) at the beginning of spring. I must admit, until recently I hadn’t photographed many families with pets. How is this even possible? Pets make such a great addition to any photo sessions, be it a newborn or a family one. In the end they are part of our families and should be included in this moment of time being captured by the camera.

This family not only had a dog running merrily around us but also a kitten (who was actually hiding from me for the whole time I was there), fish and a guinea pig. Now I know it’s not always practical to photograph all the animals in the house as some may seem more scared of the strangers or camera noise, but I was very pleased that this four-legged member of the family joined us for the fun. I’m sure the whole family will treasure the photos with their dogs for the years to come.
