Hi guys, say I have a portrait shoot next Saturday and I wanted to discuss posing options to due the nature of the couple. So it’s a woman I work with and her partner. They will be bringing their black lab too. One of the women is in a wheelchair and im not sure if she can stand up or wants to.

It will be in Denver in a park that happens to have a big Greek Parthenon type structure so columns etc and the rest will be typical park type grass and flowers.

Can you think of anything beyond the basic poses im coming up with? Thanks in advance!

insufferably pedantic. I can live with that.

They may have poses in mind. You'll have to ask unless they volunteer the information. If it isn't a physical strain, the ambulatory woman might sit on the other's lap, perhaps holding the dog, or with the dog at the side or in front (Labs are heavy).

There's some here on pinterest that could give you some ideas:

I found a lot of them to be very cute and intimate. I think the poses just need to have as much body contact as possible if they're going for a style that's very heartwarming and shows their love, since the element of a wheelchair usually separates people in a lot of photos (one can only stand so close before the wheels get in the way. My sister is in a wheelchair so it's something I've noticed looking back on some photos). Like the examples on pinterest, they are somehow connected together either through holding hands, looking at each other, giving a kiss, or wrapping one's arms around the other from behind.
