What exactly are furbabies? Furbabies are our darling pets that hold places in our hearts that cannot be filled by anything or anyone else. Many of my closest friends have pets in their lives that position themselves as near and dear to their hearts as children. One such friend took a walk with us recently and had us snap a few photos. She, her husband, and her furbabie, Evie, make a beautiful family. I have 3 furbabies of my own, two of whom I've have the pleasure of living with for 16 years. Daisy, my eldest feline furbaby, behaves just like a child. She loves (needs) to be held and comforted whenever she notices my arms are free. She often puts nonstop on my chest all through the night.
Photographing furbabies can present some real challenges. Here is a collection of my recent shots that were successes. When photographing pets, make sure to put safety first - no shot is worth losing your dog in a large park. A good photographer can edit the leash away using composite photography, as I've done in the image of the two dogs below. Safety should always come before the desire for a good shot.
