Annie and Linda – Pet Photography – Healthy Pet Magazine

I’ve been waiting, not so patiently, for the summer publication of Healthy Pet, published by and yay! It’s out! Annie, the rescue dog I photographed is a small Chihuahua who has survived some harrowing experiences. I guess you can her a death defying little rescue. She survived living on the streets, a severe case of kennel cough and even a rattlesnake bite. She is such a tiny little thing that it all seems very remarkable when you meet her.

Annie and Linda, her very loving owner, met me at a gorgeous park in the shadow of the San Bernardino mountains. Let me tell you something she LOVES Linda, it was very cute. I was able to strategically place Linda wherever I wanted Annie to look. Though tiny she has a proud little stance but is also very loving. She wants to look you in the face and will literally climb up your leg like a cat does. I saw her do it to Linda! So funny, she has a lot of personality. So glad none of those very serious experiences did her in.

Photographing Annie was an inspiring reminder that it doesn’t matter how big you are but really the strength of your heart and spirit. I have no doubt she can handle anything in her future and I hope that it’s just love, pets and long walks with her beloved Linda.

Bonnie & Gino BFF’s Furrever

Bonnie & Gino BFF's Furrever

These two are just very close, and it is so obvious when you are with them! I really liked Gino, he is super layed back and has a great smile. I loved his pretty eyes too with a unique little fleck in it that stands out and gives him a special look that is all his. I think Gino did great especially since the park was rather busy that day and he was just interested in all that was going on without being nervous. I think was very into the treats! Fine with us, we had a nice walk and enjoyed the atmosphere and very pretty scenery and found some great spots that we had all to ourselves. I wasn’t sure how Gino would be feeling that day as he is in remission right now but he is doing great. Bonnie’s thoughtful fiancé Tim gifted her the session what a sweet guy. I think he get fiancé of the year award, hands down!

Here are a few more of the beautiful photos we took that day:

Pet Family Photo Session – Oceanside, Ca


I have to say this was a pretty exciting session. While I normally leave to arrive at a pet photography session early, I did on this day not knowing that the freeway was closing down due to a brush fire! That said I really didn’t want to miss it so we ended 4WD off the freeway out of a huge mess (with some guidance from the authorities) and arriving at Oceanside beach in the nick of time. So I have to say despite the fact I was a wee bit stressed about the excitement, that soon turned into happiness at how pretty the photos were turning out. Maggie, the dachshund and her gorgeous owners looked and dressed great and we became celebrities of the beach as did our session! It was a fantastic sunset, creamy with luscious colors and it really just goes to show everything we put into these efforts is absolutely worth it! Can’t wait to go back again.

Mary S Roberts Adoption Center – Adopt a Dog or Cat!


It was so nice to meet Zahira and staff at the Mary S Roberts Adoption Center in Riverside, Ca. They are the sweetest people and really love the pets that reside there. I can honestly say we were extremely impressed with their shelter and level of care they give their dogs and cats. We got to meet some of the long time residents who are in need of homes and photograph some very funny cats as well. These guys are all adorable and very sociable and would love to come home to be the well loved pet in your home.

If you are interested in adoption for a dog or cat please visit the website below and ask about these cuties. I mean really, just look at them how could you not fall in love!
