When dogs and horses are an important part of the family they are included in family group photographs and often warrant individual portraits of their own.
Vaughan Ives makes photographic studies of horses and portraits of dogs that bring out their personalities. Portraiture of cats and other smaller creatures is also undertaken.
A selection of studies may be seen in the Pet Portrait Gallery.
As part of a portrait session children often ask for a few photographs with a family pet which invariably relaxes sitters and produces wonderfully informal family portraits.
