Photography // Furry Family Photos

Remember when I mentioned the wedding we recently went to? Well, here are a few photos from a little shoot I did with the happy couple and their fur babies a couple months before the big day! I was really excited to get together with my cousin (Kathryn) and her fiancé (Brian), and of course to have the opportunity to photograph some pups. My favorite!K+B-2
We drove to a meadow that I knew of right on a cliff above the beach over in Half Moon Bay for this little shoot, a place that I have gone to for several photo sessions now. I think the setting really suited them well, especially since doggies were involved.K+B-3 K+B-4 K+B-5 K+B-6
 When we first arrived to do these photos it was sunny and golden, but as time progressed, the clouds rolled in. I think that I prefer the softness and gentleness of the photos taken in overcast light, but it does kind of bother me that half the photos are sunny and half are overcast. Oh well, I guess some variety is good, right? ;)K+B-7
Over all, I'm pretty happy with how these photos turned out and it was a fun adding some furry friends into the mix! My cousin used these photos as part of the decor around their wedding and I loved seeing them printed and displayed so nicely :) I'm also working on a (belated, yet thoughtful!) wedding gift using one of these photos, which I will be sharing in a DIY post next week, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I have realized that photography is one of my greatest passions, yet lately I haven't really been spending the time practicing and learning to be better. I definitely want to change that (especially since my plan is to have photography as part of my career)! I need to go on more photo adventures and simply carry my camera with me wherever I go. I would also love to keep photographing people, since I have come to the realization that they are my favorite subjects!

If anyone lives in the area and wants some photos taken for fun, I'm your gal :)

Yeah, it was totally fun! I felt like it could have easily been disastrous, but I think things turned out pretty well. Thanks :)
