I’ve been studying a few new portrait styles, one of them, relationships, captures the connection between the people in the image. It didn’t take me long to realize I’d been shooting this “new style” for a few years at my old job, only we called it Pets with People instead of Relationship photography.

It’s all about the connection….

Relationships portraiture is usually a fine art B&W that captures some of the emotion between the subjections. Often used for children’s portraits with their parents or grandparents. ?

Of course at the Dumb Friends League we’d been doing “People and Animal” shots for years. I plan on offering this style for pet portraits as well as family sessions.
