Doing child portraits is always a challenge. You have to work with them to keep them from getting distracted. You are lucky if you get 5 minutes of attention. Add a pet: or better yet, a young and very active golden retriever and all of the sudden live gets very interesting. That is what we did a couple of weeks ago. The family met me in N.E. Mesa about an hour before sunset. The session was very productive and better yet, it was alot of fun. I was able to create few great images. Here is a selection of images from the session.
