Who let the dogs....In

We love St. Bernards, and we were so happy when a client of ours asked us if they could bring their dog into the studio for a family portrait.  Of course we said Yes!  Then our happiness turned to sadness as they told us why they needed a family portrait with their St. Bernard, because their beloved pet had cancer and they would have to put it down soon, but before they did they wanted to be able to remember her during happier times.

We had plans to photograph them on our seamless white background and reflective white flooring since they were wearing all black, but the dog had other ideas.  She would just not step on the flooring, not sure what she did not like, but everytime they tried to get her or pull her on the flooring she would pull back and she can pull hard!  So, we pivoted, and replaced the shiny white flooring with our carbet from our lobby.  That seemed to do the trick, she walked right onto it.  The next trick was to get her to face the camera, which was harder than you would think.  She kept wanting to sit or lay down facing the family and not the camera (I guess I can't blame her, LOL)
