When mommy and daddy contacted me about doing this little guy's newborn portraits they asked if we could get a few shots with their Golden Retriever, Benson. I'm always a little apprehensive to shoot newborns with dogs because it can be unpredictable. Knowing this is typically a gentle breed I was happy to oblige. When Benson arrived he was a little excited. It took us a while to get him to sit still but he eventually did for a few seconds and I was able to get a shot. I actually took one of Benson with the baby moved aside and then one of the baby alone and composited them together. The safety of the baby is always the most important thing. I'm sure these two are going to be best friends. And baby Luca was such a great little subject and slept like a dream for his session.
Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot.
