Although I'm now based in San Francisco, my hometown is Barcelona. I don't only have my family and friends there, but also lovely clients who are willing to wait 6 months for me to go home to photograph their pets.
This Christmas I had several sessions booked and now that I'm back and settled, I want to share them with you.
Let me introduce you to Set & Vincent. Set (which means Seven in Catalan), is the 2nd long hair collie this family has had. A few years ago, their first collie passed away at the age of 14 years old. So, when the time arrived, they didn't doubt their decision to get the same breed. They rescued Set from a puppy mill in Girona. After a few months of lots of patience and unconditional love, Set knew that he was home.
A few years later, Vincent joined the family. He is of the same breed and he was also rescued from another puppy mill.
Vincent's mom chose the location. It's been many years since I left my lovely Catalonia so I'm a bit outdated when it comes to new locations for photo shots. Luckily, she found the perfect one.
Although the day was moody and looked like it was about to rain, the weather turned perfect. The light was gentle, the weather wasn't harsh, and the dogs had a wonderful time running and chasing each other.
After a while, it was time to relax, and for me to become invisible to them so that I could capture the perfect moment.
Of course, being outdoors, the dogs couldn't help themselves and had to go back to have some more fun!
In the meantime, Set was just doing his thing.
Although Set was rescued and I know he is a lucky dog, her mom feels very lucky to have him in her life. You can tell the love is there.
One hour later, it was time to head home.
It was a very nice session and we all had a great time in the forest.
Thank you, Montse, Vincent, and Set for letting me be part of such an amazing day.
