Pet Photography Session – Fairmont Park Riverside Ca


First blog post of 2017! Last year was a blur of getting better from a wrist and shoulder injury while maintaining work and many responsibilities.  Despite all that I was still able to shoot some great sessions. This was my first time shooting at Fairmont Park in Riverside, Ca and my client was kind enough to meet me there since it was close to home. Her dogs Mika, Piper and Carli are older and having different health issues as well and we wanted to keep it fun and easy.

The park is sooo pretty and happily pet friendly and we all got a kick out of the little bridges and spots to sit and look out upon the water. The dogs all gave me great poses which was impressive considering all the smells and ducks that were running about. We had great treats but I know that wasn’t easy!

I want to make a special mention for Carli who very sadly is not with us anymore. This was her last photo shoot and it was an honor for me to do it. She was a sweet dog and really liked her. We were glad to give her one last fun day at the park. I know that is very much missed and am sorry we won’t get to see her again.




Piper was the biggest cuddliest puppy ever! Update. Piper has successfully recovered from shoulder surgery and is doing wonderfully :0)

For Barley the Yellow Lab

Barley was a beautiful dog we met this summer under sad circumstances. This beautiful lab was diagnosed with serious illness and we called out to photograph him before his time came. I have a love/hate relationship with these pet sessions. On the one hand I am deeple honored to be able to provide this service for my clients, on the other I normally struggle not to leave tears. Its a tough situation but we can say we really understand how these owners feel. Many times I can honestly say that I have sat and thought that I wish I’d had better photos of some of our lost loved ones before they passed.

Happily Barley was feeling pretty good the day we arrived and we made a point not to do anything that would tire him out too much so we shot the session in his owners very pretty yard. He was very happy to go along from spot to spot and gave us the cutest smiles the entire time. Can I say I LOVE doggies who smile! He really didn’t act sick but we knew better  and yet we were glad he enjoyed himself and had a nice afternoon. Below are some photos from this sweet boy who had to go to over the rainbow that next week. That’s about all I have to say about that for now because even though it was just an afternoon that we knew him we still hurt for him and owners. Sometimes things just aren’t fair, but Barley shined on right through to the end of his journey here. Sweet boy.

Sandee the Goldendoodle – Pet Photography Murrieta

Joy is photographing a dog this gorgeous right before Christmas. Sandee was my hearts delight from the moment I saw her. Sandee is goldendoodle and a “right fine one too”, she is just sooo pretty. Having just been beautifully groomed by The Pet Stylist based in Murrieta, she was prepped and ready for an afternoon with us out in the glorious sunshine. Since she is an older dog we were careful to take it on the easy side so her hips didn’t get sore. I cannot find words to express how happy it makes me when folks give me the opportunity to photograph their furry friends in the prime of their life. These photos will be cherished for a lifetime and really honor the spirit of these special and precious friendships that we have with our dogs and cats. I could not have been happier with the session, thank you Sandee!
