Meet Rossi! This dog was so sweet and seemed so wise, I could just feel it while photographing her with her owner on that after noon at the Coronado Dog Beach, which just happens to be Rossi's favorite place on earth! This was the first time I had ever shot a portrait session that specifically focused on an owner and pet. Let me just say that I really enjoyed every minute of it! I was hired on by Jen's brother (Jen is Rossi's owner), as a gift to her. Never before had I seen such a connection with a pet and it's owner, it was really sweet! I don't have a dog, but when I was finished shooting this portrait session I wanted to go home and get one!
Here's my favorite shot of the day...
I caught this last shot of them as I was walking away, it feels sort of peaceful to me.
Thank you to Jen's brother Rob for hiring me, this really was a great experience and wonderful afternoon! I loved shooting something a little out of the "norm"!

These shots are so sweet! He does look like a really nice dog. I got some shots of my friend with her dog, but it was a bit tricky because you can't always tell a dog to pose for you! Nicely done. I love the one of the dog licking her chin!

Amelia, I have the biggest smile every time I look at these pictures. You are so gifted at capturing emotion. Thank you so much for giving me such awesome memories of Rossi - she is so special to me.
