Two Brothers and One Smiling Puppy
The Portrait Session in Our Studio
The Pham family came into our studio for a family session. They brought along their one-year-old pit bull Maddox, who was a very smiley, happy puppy. Tran and Michael Pham wanted the shoot to focus on their children, Ashton and Anthony, so we started with some shots of the boys.
Ashton is seven, and Anthony is three, so they were full of energy. We set them in front of our reclaimed wood backdrop and began by taking individual shots of them. Michael took Maddox for a walk while the boys got acquainted with space. In no time they were playing around and wrestling, which made for a few sweet shots!
We brought out a fuzzy blanket, which they both liked, and then reintroduced Maddox to the scene. He was well behaved and obedient the whole time. He just sat on the mat with his big pit bull smile and posed like a pro. We got a shot of the boys with Maddox and his cute lolling tongue. After taking individuals of the boys with their pet, it was time for the puppy to take a break in the car. He has a taste for leather shoes, and Michael had forgotten a pair in the car! So as you can imagine, he worried that the puppy would find them! As far as we know, the shoes survived.
After that, we focused again on the little guys, who gave us close attention. We took a great shot of the brothers sitting on the fuzzy mat, arms around each other. A few more individuals later, and it was time for a family shot. Tran and Michael held the boys’ hands, and then they all came together for an intimate family moment. Being the energetic kids that they are, Ashton and Anthony were happy to get outside to play once the shoot was over. It was a fun afternoon, and we look forward to sharing their photos with them!
