Our Dog Photo Shoots
Some of our favorite locations
Dogs are our best friends, and they are 100% family. They are our truest and most loyal companions. For some of us, like me, they are the only “kids” we have. That’s why it’s no surprise that more and more dogmoms and dogdads in the San Diego area are reaching out to schedule a photography session to celebrate their furkids, and there’s nothing I’d love more than to help you get those special memories on “film”.
Why people hire a Professional Dog Photographer
Most people don’t think about reaching out to a photographer until they get a new furry family member, or they realize that time is getting short with their beloved friend. I get it, but I hope more people choose to reach out when their buddy is in his or her prime. Here are my top 3 reasons why you should consider a professional photo shoot for your doggo.
(1) Yes, you have a bazillion photos of your furbaby on your cell phone. But, have you ever spent an entire hour photographing your dog? Maybe, but likely no, right? Well, having a full hour helps me capture all those adorable and unique personality traits and expressions that only your pup has. I spent at least an hour with you and your pup, and its within those moments that I am able to capture the full spectrum that is your best friend. Most sessions I have a hard time putting my camera down at the end, because I just love what I do so much! I’m constantly laughing and aww’ing at all the adorableness I’ve captured during these sessions, and my clients do the same when they get their images.
(2) It’s totes fun! Some people envision a professional pet photo session to be stressful and hectic. A dog photo session with me is the total opposite. We will have fun during our session, I promise! I love getting to play and interact with the dogs I photograph. We’ll bring out the toys, treats and lots of play-time that make the session feel like just a good time. My goal is to capture the joy and personality of your dog, and the experience of the shoot itself is crucial to that end. I’m easy-going and patient, and I’ve done this 100s of times, so I have a game-plan that helps make the session a rousing success. Also, I always bring my assistant/doggie-whisperer/husband, John, along to help. He stands behind me squeaking a toy or waiving a treat to get the dog’s attention. That way you can be part of the shoot as well, and you don’t have to stress about your dog not cooperating.
(3) No matter how long we have with our furbabies, it’s never long enough. Our dogs are our family, and the hardest part of having them in our lives is having to say goodbye. John and I know this pain all to well having lost our Newton and Maya in the last 2 years. You can celebrate your dog by documenting your bond and capturing them in all their glory with photos that last forever.
