I’m back with the Beautiful Beasties Network Project 52 – this time focusing on photographing more than one pet!  My week started out with a rescue photography session with two of the cutest puppies.  After I was done with the individual images, I popped them together.  I love how it provides some sense of  ‘scale’ to both of them!

Then we headed off to the mountains!  Between my two dogs and my sister’s two dogs I figured I would have lots of opportunities to wrangle up some group images.  That proved not quite so easy!  Jack and Julie have the posing down pretty well, although they were soppy pups!  Photographing at high noon by reflective water was no fun though – needed my off camera flash to overpower those shadows.

I found the easiest way to include Riley in the image was naturally capturing what they love to do – Julie chewing something and Riley looking for something to chase!

When people ask how I am able to successfully wrangle group shots, I assure them that I get tons of rejects too.  Thought I would include this one!

1.  Note Molly sitting atop Riley’s photo-bombing head!

2.  Jack and Julie pose oblivious to all around them.

3.  My husband picks this moment to practice balancing on a log.
