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


    I all the time take pleasure in doing photograph 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 positive!) 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 latest photograph 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 digicam, and I loved seeing that aspect of her character – 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 She is 3 years outdated and definitely has a thoughts of her personal: there have been occasions throughout our session when she was keen to be photographed, and occasions when she declined. She was an excellent reminder that typically it’s essential to take it sluggish and float… 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! Firstly 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 truly 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 might have liked 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 photograph taken or be close to strangers. And that’s okay – it definitely didn’t make sense to power it or stress him out to ask for something extra.

    After photographing the cats I lastly started working 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 little bit sluggish to heat as much as new folks, 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 accomplished an excellent job coaching him. I liked seeing how they’ve bonded via coaching – and I used to be impressed at how his dad even takes him to enjoyable areas (just like the canine seashore) to coach, so he can get accustomed to overcoming distractions whereas listening to instructions. That’s SUCH a good way to coach a canine! Kudos to his dad! (And Elvis is aware of that at any time when 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 considered one of my favourite parks on the town, and the sunshine couldn’t have been any extra good, filtering via the timber that afternoon. Elvis had loads of room to run for motion pictures, and naturally we blended in some household portraits as properly. It was lots of enjoyable to observe Elvis merely be comfortable, hanging out together with his two favourite folks on the earth! So… how a few “sneak peek” of our photographs?


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