Adding The Family Dog Can Make Your Portraits Complete - Morro Bay Family Beach Portrait Photographers

I created this family's portrait while they were on vacation in Morro Bay. I knew they were bringing their dog and I was excited to find out it was a beautiful black 140 pound Newfoundland named Finn. Finn was so fluffy and docile that as soon as you saw him you wanted to pet him. That is until the drool started hanging from his jowls. A drool towel came in handy, especially when he shook his head and the stuff started flying. The kids were unfazed by the flying drool and I was quick to cover my lens, so we all just wiped it off and kept shooting. It all worked out and I got some great shots. The mom loved the photos so much she called them magical.

Some more intense breeds will only look once or twice and they are done with you, but Finn was much more curious than that. The family enjoyed it too.

When I shoot family beach portraits, I like to get some lifestyle photos of them playing and interacting with each other. It gives me that slice-of-life feel that I love to capture.
