Photos are always better (and more fun) when you add your best friend. Meet Olivia and Tucker (Left photo) and Tanisha and Maya (Right Photo).
I confess that after the photoshoot I always say to myself, wow that was much easier than I thought it would be. The trick seems to be at first ignore the pet completely and just talk to the person. Pets quickly realize that you are a friend of the person and there is nothing to worry about. Always works for me... so far.
