It was so good to see Gianna and her two adorable pups Coda and Cadence again. We met for a photo session at Lake Ronkonkoma. The lake is a great spot for pet photo sessions because dogs are allowed and it's so big that there are tons of areas with beautiful backdrops for photos. Gianna was recovering from a sports injury at the time of our session, but she was a trooper throughout the whole thing. I've photographed this trio several times over the years and every time I see them, it's very apparent to me the bond they share. These dogs certainly love their girl!
We started with some photos of the three of them together, then did individual portraits of Coda and Cadence. They looked so adorable in that golden hour sunset light. Then we did more photos of all three of them, then some shots of Gianna with each pup. After that, we did a few solo portraits of Gianna on her own while the dogs took a break to run in the sand! After we were done with Gianna's portraits, she joined them for a walk up and down the shore of the lake for some candid shots of them together. We ended the session with a few photos of Coda and Cadence sitting lakeside, all nice and tired out from an active session. I always make sure to shoot for variety in my sessions, in groupings, backdrops, composition, etc. so that my clients have a lot of types of photos to choose from. That way, photos can easily be used in collages or albums and not look too similar when grouped together.
These three did an amazing job as always! Here are a few of my favorite photos from our session!
