Jackie & Jack - Family, Teenage & Pet Portrait Photography, East Grinstead (West Sussex)

This was a very special shoot because it involved two of my favourite people - Jackie and her son Jack - and they brought their wonderful doggies with them. Jackie had Betty who is just the most sweet dog and the only other girl in a home full of boys (Dad, 3 sons and Rollo). Betty clearly got straight into her, 'I'm ready for my close-up' mode and I just love this one of the two of them. It's just the kind of shot that I'd like of me and my dog, Fred.

Jack brough Rollo who was totally fine until he had to stand on the paper and then he acted as though the paper was going to melt his feet... Jack had major problems getting him settled so I am thrilled that we got this shot!

And finally just a quickie using low key lighting. Four years ago I entered a shot that I had taken of Jack into the National Portrait Gallery's Photographic Portrait Prize sponsored by Taylor Wessing so I thought it would be nice to update this shot. Jack is very good in front of the camera - a natural, and a pleasure to hang out with.

Thanks to you both for coming along and hope that you all have a very Happy Christmas. E xxx
