Dog Days: Newport Beach Pet Photography

dog-at-the-beachdoggie-at-beachdog-photo-at-beachdog-and-owner-beachI can remember back the day my husband came home with a birthday present for “me”.  A yellow Labrador puppy! she was my everything. It was comical the times I would take Sandy as a puppy to the beach and have a full on photo shoot to try and capture that cute puppiness. Of course she was more interested in the sealife, water, sticks, leftover picnic lunches than looking at the camera. But looking back at those pictures is pure bliss. Simpler times for sure.

So, it was a bit out of my element to come photograph this sweet dog and her owner, I almost didn’t think I should. I love families, love everything about capturing the connection, the love, the laughter that is found with kids and parents. But I was surprising blessed this special day. This session inspired me in a huge way that I wasn’t prepared for. LOVED every second of it, and it reminded me of so many things like keeping my puppy off the bed at night, the way her wet fur smelled at the beach, and the first time she swam out passed the breakers with me. Thank you Gidget!
