Pet Photography

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

I all the time get pleasure from doing picture classes with a number of pets, however one thing particular occurs after 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 travel 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 latest picture session in Del Mar.

We began out by photographing the cats at residence. Their mother knowledgeable me forward of time that Henrietta is a complete ham for the digital camera, and I loved seeing that facet of her persona – however like all cats, she made me “work for it” a bit too! She is 3 years outdated and definitely has a thoughts of her personal: there have been occasions throughout our session when she was prepared to be photographed, and occasions when she declined. She was an important reminder that typically it’s essential to take it sluggish and drift… 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! Initially 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 digital camera for about 3 minutes… after which he was gone once more. Ha! I might have cherished to spend extra time with Oats as a result of he’s beautiful, 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 actually didn’t make sense to pressure 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 just a little 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 performed an important job coaching him. I cherished seeing how they’ve bonded by way of 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 one among my favourite parks on the town, and the sunshine couldn’t have been any extra excellent, filtering by way of the bushes that afternoon. Elvis had loads of room to run for motion photographs, and naturally we combined in some household portraits as properly. It was a variety of enjoyable to observe Elvis merely be pleased, hanging out together with his two favourite individuals on the planet! So… how a couple of “sneak peek” of our photographs?


Henrietta has a number of favourite locations to loosen up in her home, and he or she gave me a tour of most of them. (I hear the very best ones are by the window, to observe for birds.)
