Sometimes when I meet a family for a session I can instantly tell how much fun we are going to have right off the bat. When I met the Johnson Family at the St. Matthew Athletic Field in Gahanna, I knew in an instant that we were going to have a blast. The kids were awesome and they helped keep the family pet, Sage, occupied while we walked from location to location. Oddly enough, within the first 2 minutes of shooting this session, Sage sat up and looked right at me for the perfect family portrait! As a photographer, I never know how the pets are going to react to being outside and having to sit still for a shot. This session just goes to prove that you CAN include the family pet in your photos and can have some amazing results. I can’t wait to see the Johnson Family’s holiday card for 2013 decorated with a few of my images!
