How To Take a Dog Family Portrait

Pinterest is full of pictures like this one...

Let me tell you.
I have tried and 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 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!
"Helloooooooo....hey....over here!"

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!


  1. I have no idea how they stages those pinterest examples! One of my dogs usually tries to lick the camera as soon as a crouch down to get a photo. Usually one will walk away or look away or move.... its impossible!

  2. Haha! This was funny. I love your wit. Beautiful dogs even if I never see them on pinterest.

  3. Thanks for the chuckle. Good luck with that. Maybe Someday ? Have a good day....

  4. Cute post! Might be time to call in the professionals! I'm guessing it takes a small army to wrangle, pose and keep their interest. Your 3 sure are unique individuals. Love that camera hog Sam!

  5. What a fun way to start this Thursday morning! At least you have a couple pics of all 3 in a single shot ... that is a plus right there! And the one picture has them all right there, all looking in the same direction [however, not at you], and all looking reasonably happy! Of course, Sammy always has a smile! :)

    Hugs from CO ... Marcia

  6. the last pic of sammy is worth the effort. hey, if the other two don't want to go to hollywood too bad for them! sammy is on his way!

  7. You are sooo funny--but love all the photos--love the dogs and cats whether all in one shot or all by themselves--thanks for sharing--and a chuckle!!
    love and laughter, di

  8. Oh Beverly, you made me laugh so hard! What a great post. I love your photos, even if you did not accomplish what you set out to do.

  9. Fun post . . .
    (I think photoshop comes to play for some . . .)

  10. lol Love them all...Sammy of course, is a ham! Moll a runner up.
