Pet Family Photography in Riverside Ca

These guys were so awesome to work with. I really didn’t quite understand how great these pets were going to be and I was so pleased to see how much they had to offer to our session! It is a rare thing to take cats on location but it happens sometimes and man is it cool. Kitty who was rescued and adopted along with the doggos has the best home now and is so very much loved by these two who know quite a bit about the pet world. I consider these guys colleagues now and I’m really impressed with all they have done for dogs and cats in need of homes. Oh and did I mention how cool their pets are? Ok, just wanted to make sure. Mad skills all of them, for sure. Really great family, they are an absolute joy.

The Love Post – Happy Valentine’s Day Special!

It’s almost that lovey dovey holiday again! I think puppy and kitty love is the absolute best and they should definitely be included in the celebration!

2017 Pet Photographer of the Year Award

I am incredibly honored to be named 2017 Pet Photographer of the Year by the Inland Empire Professional Photographers and Videographers! My award was for competing with my images in the pets category for the year. This is the first time I have received this acknowledgement by this organization and I am very thankful! Even though competition is hard (and emotional!) I feel like I learn so much every time I participate.

These competitions are judged by PPA master photographers who travel to the events from all over California. It’s truly an enriching experience every time. I am ooking forward to this new year and perhaps competing internationally. I couldn’t do it without all those adorable furry faces my clients provide me. Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart!

A Day at the Beach – Del Mar Dog Beach

This was such a fun session. Joe and I arrived early and sat and watched the waves rolling in and the dogs all jumping in and out of them with glee. I could sit there all day and watch, the dogs are just having such a great time. I really need to plan a day off to just do this. Yes that’s what I would do on a day off!

Diana, Lola and Max all met us a bit later and Lola was soooo excited we had to let her chase the ball a few times. It was so funny to me that she just needed 2 or 3 good throws and then she was ready to meet us and do whatever the heck it was we were up to. I knew those waves were calling to them so I tried to hurry up with the portraits so the real fun could be had.

After they did their best to stay put and look at me it was reward time. Jumping in the OCEAN! Let me just say this was coolest part. I wish every session could end like that. I was able to get some very pretty photos of them jumping and playing in the water and when the light got too low we were off to find some dinner. The dogs and Diana however were still out there having the time of their lives. It was truly heartwarming. Can’t wait for the next beach session, they are always amazing 🙂

Riverside Special (Cat) Pet Photography Session

Sooo, Joe and I got a really special surprise at this session, because someone, lets say of the feline variety decided they were not going to be left out of the family pet photography session! I had to admit I wasn’t sure for a moment what exactly Kitty was going to agree to during our time together but learned quickly that she was up for quite a bit.

Kitty has 3 great doggie friends, all rescued by this beautiful couple and everyone it seems has special skills. They are very good with pets and work in our industry and we were impressed at how much and far they had come with their rescues. They were all wonderful animals and I am not lying when I tell you guys how thrilled I was with the session. I felt determined to get an awesome shot of the family and especially Kitty because she was obviously something special to be captured. We definitely had fun with the mellow and talented bunch and got some great photos for them to enjoy while doing it. There’s so many to enjoy from this session and I hope you all enjoy them images as much as we have!
