Meghan and Christian are young, hip (he's a bass player in rock band, it doesn't get any hipper than that!) and live in downtown Dallas so it was only natural that we photographed their family in the trendy neighborhood of the Bishop Arts District in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, TX. There are some really great murals throughout the area but when they said they wanted to dress up for their session (I'll admit to doing a little happy dance in my office when I heard that), I knew just the mural that would do this couple and their monochromatic dogs, Morty and Lacy, justice; the black and white #cactex mural by artist W. Heron. I also knew this session was the perfect one for this week's theme in the Pet Photography 52 week challenge, "urban".

Urban Family Portrait (with the pups of course!)
Meghan and Christian
I adore this couple and their dogs so was thrilled to hear that just a few weeks after this session, Christian popped the question and of course Meghan said "yes"; the happy couple will be wed later this year!
