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. 🙂
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.
I *love* the pink with Ruby and am so happy that these turned out! Tristan you can wear a pink shirt to our shoots anytime!! lol
