Session Share: Pug, Part Two – A Personal Project from Jennifer Kapala, of Jennifer Kapala Photography

pinterest-branding-horiz-(final)jk

Inspiration: The inspiration for this series was threefold. As part of my second 365 I wanted to recreate a series of pictures I did with our pug and my two youngest boys a few years ago, which was a lot of fun! A lot has changed in our lives as we recently moved homes, and I wanted to give them some memories in their new one, as well as a few pictures to hang on their bathroom wall. Most of all, I really love the how children create all sorts of fun in the bath, and of course the unpredictable elements a dog adds to the chaos.

Favorite Element: Water, kids and a dog – what could possibly go wrong with that combo? I have to say my least favorite part was cleaning up the mess afterwards!

Biggest Challenge: Actually shooting in the space I have to work with and working fast enough to get what I wanted without getting covered in water. My camera definitely got a few splashes!

Final Thoughts: As a photographer, I believe it’s important to take time for personal projects and create something that inspires us daily. As a mom, I believe it’s important to have memories our children will look back on and be able to say, “remember that time…” So I am looking forward to getting the images back soon and hanging them on the wall.
