Pinterest is full of pictures like this one...
and this one...
adorable canine families posed and smiling.
Let me tell you.
I have tried and tried.
to get one (just one, please) perfect photo of my 3 favorite dog-pals.
Try as I might,
it never happens.
I've come to the conclusion that the only way others get all of their dogs together
is either drugs, Photoshop, or taxidermy.
Of my three...one is a camera hog.
One is completely camera shy.
And one has attention deficit disorder.
And then there is the cat (barn cat Moll) who likes to get in on the action.
This was as close as I could get to three in one frame.
Notice how well everyone is paying attention to me!
Maybe I could submit this to "Pinterest Fails".
I did, however, have a fun time photographing Sammy
and his many faces.
So, in conclusion...
if you were looking for a tutorial on how to take family portraits of your pets...
you've come to the wrong person!
