Ruby & Buster- Santa Monica pet photography sneak-peek

I was beyond happy, positively bowled over, when Ruby and Buster’s parents said they wanted to come up to Santa Monica from their home in Orange County for a photo session at the Santa Monica Pier. Some of you may remember them from our Napa Valley shoot last fall. I was so happy to see them again (the whole family), I nearly cried. Buster has lost a whopping 12 pounds and is looking sleek and svelte.

Here are some of my favorite images from our shoot:

I processed these in Lightroom with a very bright, saturated hand. I wanted to give a colorful Southern Cal feel to them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rarely does a shot I take make me laugh out loud, but I had just gotten done telling the workshop group that greyhounds and whippets can look funny if you shoot them straight on, so I guess I just needed to inadvertently prove my own point (I forgot about this when I took this picture, but now I’m glad I did, lol)

Had to get the famous Santa Monica pier in the background. It was a Sunday, and extremely crazy busy that day, but the dogs were fantastic. They did *such* a good job. I’m so proud of them.

  1. So wish I was closer, we’d be there in a moment’s notice. Your art is simply wonderful and your very talented.

    I HAVE A FEVER! AND THE ONLY CURE IS FOR MORE COWBELLY!!!!!

  2. Jamie, these really have a Santa Monica feel to them! Love how you captured them! Great stuff. Sounds like your workshop went really well, congrats! Enjoy your stay!

  3. Ruby & Buster’s Mom here…Jamie these shots are incredible! I’m totally in love with all of them. However, I do believe the pups have a bit of an ego now that they feel they are super models ๐Ÿ™‚ They said they will sign “pawtographs” for all their fans! Hee hee. But really, thank you for everything. We had a blast!

  4. Jamie, I LOVE these photos! They are some of my favorites ever! The colors, the noses, the eyes, expressions . . . wonderful! I imagine the owners were very pleased.

  5. The one with the dogs and the ferris wheel are my favorite. Definitely a fun photoshoot! I also love the matching pink in the last photo. Ruby is such a doll! So sweet. The photos really shows how happy they both are!
