The best Christmas gift for true animal lovers: Dog Photography session Gift Certificate

With Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays around the corner, everybody is starting to look for “that” perfect gift. Something unique, original but with meaning.

There’s definitely lots of amazing pet products but they are products for pets. But what about for the pet owner? What’s out there for the dog lover you are? Well, don’t worry. There is something: Frame Your Pet’s Gift Certificates.

And this is exactly what Porter’s mom did.

Porter is her boyfriend’s most beloved pet. So when they knew that Porter had cancer, the idea of a life without him was inconceivable. Porter overcame the cancer, and now that he is back to his happy days, his mom decided to gift her husband with something unique, original, fun, artistic and custom made: a dog photography session for Porter.

Choosing the location was pretty easy. She wanted to have it done at Runyon Canyon because it’s their favorite place to hang out with their dogs Porter and Lola.

Porter in his past life was a monkey. I'm sure.

Runyon Canyon was perfect for the dog photo session. With 160 acre park area, offers plenty of hiking and walking trails that helped me get diversity on my photos. Also, Runyon Canyon is one of Los Angeles’ most loved places to go with your dog thanks to its 90 acre off leash area. Without forgetting the breathtaking views from the top!

When we got there, I started shooting at the bottom and I kept shooting until the top, where I finished the session with these beautiful images of Porter and Nadja together during the sunset.

If you are looking to surprise somebody with a very unexpected Christmas gift or do you want to gift yourself with something to remember for years to come, buy your Gift Certificate here.

Also, and most important, the Gift Certificates are part of the BUY ONE, SAVE ONE campaign. For every Session sold, I’ll donate a session to a dog or cat in a shelter.


Porter definitely likes to be on trees!

Modern Dog Photography session with natural light at Bernal Heights, San Francisco.

Some people think that pet photography is cheese. Some people think that art is just for a niche. And some people don't even think about the combination of both: fine art pet photography. But this wasn't the case of Alana.

One of the things Lily likes is to be hold on Alana's arms and I wanted to capture that special thing they have together.

She didn't think it twice. She is passionate about her pup Lily, a beautiful combination of pit bull and terrier. She knew Lily was growing fast and she didn't want to wait too long. Lily is a young dog, full of energy and very goofy and Alana wanted me to immortalize her dog's personality, forever.

During our pre-session consultation, she told me about their story: how they met, how a good match they are, what things make Lily so special and unique… All the information helped me to design the perfect dog photo session for them.

TigerLily, which is her actual full name, has a tan coat with black stripes. Somehow she looks like a little tiger. So I though that going to the top of Bernal Heights, which have very dry zones with some naked trees like the African savannah, would be perfect for her. Lily would blend nicely with the nature and the color palette would be warm but wild.

The light during the sunset is perfect to create candid and warm portraits. Here Alana was giving Lily a treat for being such a good dog model.

We did the session in the late afternoon. I wanted to use the soft light of the end of the day and then play with the sunset's colors. The sunset is wonderful for dog photography because the natural light is still abundant but not very harsh. As a pet photographer that only uses natural light, it was perfect. It allowed me to play with the long shadows, create strong silhouettes against the sun and get a romantic look. If you are skilled and know how to use your natural resources around you, you can end up having very creative and artistic photos to show to your client.

Here are my favorites pictures from that day.
