Elvis, Henrietta, and Oats – a stunning pet pictures session in Del Mar, CA San Diego Pet Photographer Allison Shamrell ~ The Weblog

I all the time take pleasure in doing picture classes with a number of pets, however one thing particular occurs once I get to work with a number of species of pets at one session! (It retains me on my toes, that’s for certain!) From a photographer’s perspective, it’s enjoyable to shuttle between a cat’s mentality and a canine’s mentality. They’re very totally different from one another, however I like a problem! 🙂 Elvis, Henrietta, and Oats have been merely pretty to work with at our current picture session in Del Mar.

We began out by photographing the cats at dwelling. Their mother knowledgeable me forward of time that Henrietta is a complete ham for the digicam, and I loved seeing that aspect of her persona – however like all cats, she made me “work for it” a bit too! She is 3 years previous and definitely has a thoughts of her personal: there have been instances throughout our session when she was prepared to be photographed, and instances when she declined. She was an incredible reminder that generally it’s essential to take it sluggish and waft… and all my cat mother and father can perceive that. 😉

Her brother, Oats, was considerably of a literal “scaredy cat” – and I used to be warned about that too! At first of our session he was nowhere to be discovered. I used to be nervous that I wasn’t going to have the ability to {photograph} him in any respect – however after working with Henrietta for about 20 minutes he cautiously determined to affix us. To my delight, he really picked a really photogenic location to sit down and pose for the digicam for about 3 minutes… after which he was gone once more. Ha! I’d have cherished to spend extra time with Oats as a result of he’s attractive, however he was not within the temper (neither is he ever actually within the temper) to have his picture taken or be close to strangers. And that’s okay – it definitely didn’t make sense to drive it or stress him out to ask for something extra.

After photographing the cats I lastly set to work with Elvis! He’s the canine of the household, a good-looking shepherd-boxer mutt adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Middle. And whereas he’s a bit sluggish to heat as much as new individuals, he’s completely loopy about his mother and father! He’s his mom’s bodyguard (particularly from scary intruders like the new tub upkeep man) and easily adores her. And it was clear to see that Elvis actually respects his dad, who has carried out an incredible job coaching him. I cherished seeing how they’ve bonded by coaching – and I used to be impressed at how his dad even takes him to enjoyable places (just like the canine seaside) to coach, so he can get accustomed to overcoming distractions whereas listening to instructions. That’s SUCH an effective way to coach a canine! Kudos to his dad! (And Elvis is aware of that every time he wants some snuggles he can come proper again to his mother!)

After photographing Elvis at his home for a bit, we headed about 5 minutes away to San Dieguito Park. It’s certainly one of my favourite parks on the town, and the sunshine couldn’t have been any extra excellent, filtering by the timber that afternoon. Elvis had loads of room to run for motion images, and naturally we blended in some household portraits as effectively. It was a variety of enjoyable to look at Elvis merely be completely satisfied, hanging out together with his two favourite individuals on this planet! So… how a few “sneak peek” of our photos?


Henrietta has a couple of favourite locations to calm down in her home, and he or she gave me a tour of most of them. (I hear the perfect ones are by the window, to look at for birds.)


Oats, I solely want we may have spent extra time collectively. What a good-looking boy!
