I love animals.  I wish I had room for more of them in my life.  But my goodness…I thought grumpy children were there worst portrait subjects – nope!  This is Hernando, my frequent, but reluctant model.  He’s impossible to photograph.  Unless there’s a touch of The Nip sprinkled on the set (that would be the crumbs around his mouth and paw).  I have no good pictures of my other furry child because she simply won’t stand for it.

Dogs seem to be much easier (and significantly less grumpy).  My friend Emily of Onesie Couture asked me to take a few pictures of her furry children George and Mini.  These dogs were so sweet and well-behaved.  And I love Emily’s explanation of Mini’s name (“he looked like George so we called him Mini George”)!  That girl cracks me up!

Family beach photos are very popular in our area.  Every Gulf Coast family has their ubiquitous white shirt & jeans on the dunes photo.  Personally, I get a little bored with these because of their popularity but every photographer around here gets asked to do these shots. 

I’ve tried to keep my beach photos a little more interesting this summer, with different times of day, less uniformity in the poses and clothing, and more individual shots.  When it comes right down to it, it’s hard to complain about any job that takes you to the beach, right?
