Every fifth wedding anniversary my husband and I celebrate by having portraits made of ourselves and whatever dogs are in our lives at that time. In December, for our twenty-fifth anniversary, we asked Tina to do this for us in our home.
Although she told us she doesn't do much pet photography, she worked well with our two less than cooperative bassets and got some good photos of them alone and with us. (In retrospect I think it would have worked better if we'd saved the dogs' photos until the very end, after they'd had a chance to calm down and adjust to the unusual activity going on around them.)
Even though it was evening, the lighting Tina set up made the photos look as if they'd been taken in daylight, which I thought was a pretty neat bit of photographic magic. She also saw ways that hadn't occurred to us to use the furniture and space in our home for the photos. We were especially pleased when she thought to pose us in front of the wall on which all our previous anniversary photos were hanging.
We wound up with a good mix of nicely touched-up formal poses and candid shots saved on a CD as files suitable for printing out and files better for posting online. At the time she was taking the candids, I wasn't terribly confident the poses she was encouraging would result in photos I'd like, but they turned out quite well.
If you choose Tina to do your photography, you'll get a professional who arrives on time with everything she needs, is flexible and happy to go with the style you want (e.g., edgy, formal, etc.), and won't make you wait forever for the finished photos.
