I met this family at one of their favorite outdoor spots just outside of St. Louis for their pet and family portrait session. The dogs were quite the pair; one with a goofy personality and the other a bit more laid back. The young Golden Retriever was full of bounce and happy to be out and about with his family. The pit bull was a little more reserved and took some convincing to look my way. With a little patience, we got everyone cooperating (for the most part) for some beautiful photos of these lovable pets with their family.

 

We took our time to wander around the area and let the dogs soak up all of the scenery. Amidst our exploring, we even caught some sweet candid moments between the dogs and their people. We even caught some beautiful glances from the sweet pittie girl that didn’t want to look at the camera. To wrap up their photography session, we had a little playtime with the Golden Retriever’s favorite toy.
