Pasadena Cat Portraits | A Vet and Her Cats

Pasadena Cat Portraits | A Vet and Her Cats

Stunning Pasadena cat portraits was the goal of this pet photography session with kitties Lando and Kingsley plus their veterinarian mom, Dr. Theresa Loo. She serves the LA area with veterinary care and also has a website called CatTherapy.org where she gives free expert advice about better living with your cat. She says she never has enough time in a regular vet appointment to share all the info she has gained in her years of seeing kitty patients so she volunteers that info through her monthly blog posts on her website. Pasadena Cat Portraits I photographed Theresa and her cats at their...

Puppy Pictures at Home in Southern CA

golden puppies by pumpkin in grass

Leo and Skye's family wanted puppy pictures at home to be sure and remember those first weeks with their new family members! They were 10 weeks old here and settling in. These golden retriever darlings were licking peanut butter we had put on the pumpkins hoping to keep them in one place for more than a minute! That cute fluffy puppy stage is so incredibly fleeting. Pictures were the only way to somehow freeze the moment and keep them young forever! Leo and Skye were playing in front of their house here in the grass by the Thanksgiving pumpkins we grabbed off the porch that had been...

Jake the Afghan Hound is a rescue dog photographed in Palm Springs earlier this year at home just a few short months after he was adopted by his mom. They are pictured above in one of my very favorite pictures showing the strong bond they have together. I've photographed his mom with his predecessor, Mr. J, a few times as well and have enjoying watching and documenting her pet companions. I know she and Jake have helped each other come back from hardships. Isn't that what our doggie friends do best: unconditional love, loyalty, bravery, constant companionship... You can see Jake is...

This purpose of this pet photo session was to get some great pictures of puppy Lucy, their new family member. She will be announced via pictures on this famiy's holiday cards. I can imagine the squeals now! Oh, and a great family photo with ALL including Lucy too was top priority! But first, an outtake: mom and dad getting kissed by Lucy!

After posing everyone just so, in between the tree greenery and fence, we got this shot which will go in their holiday cards. We had plenty of...

Dog Photography Session in Laguna Niguel WITH DAD

Dog Photography Session in Laguna Niguel WITH DAD

"Go, go, go!" I giggled as I photographed Dad and Niko, the fox-like pup, playing a game of chase in their backyard. For this dog photography session in Laguna Niguel with dad, we started with posed portraits on the chaise lounge. Then I asked dad what they like to do best together. He said, "Oh definitely a game of chase!" So, that is when I dialed up my shutter speed and let them zoom around the yard. Niko and dad were all smiles! I had photographed Mom and Niko earlier this year at a mini portrait session at the wonderful boarding and doggie daycare, Pet Suites in Aliso Viejo, CA. Mom...

Grandkids + Dogs Photographed in San Juan Capistrano at Home

Grandkids-Dogs-Photographed-at-Home-Oc

A hot mess! At least that is what we all felt like on that sunny, humid (for SoCal) summer eve chasing around 2 dogs and 2 cute kiddos. The spectators looking on: mom, auntie, grandpa and grandma were wondering if we were getting ANY good shots to frame of their grandkids and dogs photographed in San Juan Capistrano. I assured them we were and that the portraits at the end of the shoot are always the best as those are the relaxed, let loose ones where everyone looks like themselves. (As was the case with this portrait of all of them together.) After doing the standard posed shots in the...

Cat photo with peony flowers

Cat photo with peony flowers

  How to create a cat photo with peony flowers? With patience! 😉 Cats don't "sit" or "stay" like dogs do. They take awhile to settle into a cozy space. For her kitty photo session, I got Paris, our senior cat pictured here, a cozy blanket with a heating pad underneath to set on my husband's lap. I waited for her to settle in while he pet her a bit before I started photographing her. Our kitty who is turning 15 this month, has been in our family for 14 years. My husband and his daughter chose Paris out of all the other cats in the shelter years ago in Southern California. My husband...
