I recently had the pleasure of meeting Julia, a lively Chihuahua mix, through a referral from one of my former pet photography clients. Unfortunately, Julia suffers from congestive heart failure and other heart-related problems, so her parents were eager to find a pet photographer to capture some special moments with their senior dog.
We decided to take Julia to Echo Park for a lifestyle dog photography session near her home. Beautiful blue skies and the Los Angeles skyline provided stunning backdrops for photos of Julia cuddling with her family. It is clear that Julia has developed a strong bond with her family over the past three years since she was adopted from North Central Animal Shelter.
Julia was active and adventurous throughout the pet photography session. She especially liked playing in the grass and leaves at Echo Park, although she did spend some time soaring through the air and climbing on trees (with her dad safely close by, of course)! It was inspiring to see Julia smiling and enjoying herself throughout the shoot.
As the sun began to set, the golden sunlight shining through the trees provided the opportunity to capture Julia and her owners basking in the warm rays. Julia was more than happy to curl up in her mom's lap and enjoy some well-deserved ear scratches.
I had a fun time meeting and photographing such a spirited senior dog like Julia!
Here are the best photos from the session.
