A Dog and Cat in Santa Fe

My client adopted Dottie from the streets of India as a puppy. India is known for it’s feral dog population, and when my client was traveling there she came across a tiny, helpless, homeless little puppy that she just fell in love with. Street dogs in India have hard lives - they have to fight for their food, wander constantly to find safe shelter and do what they can to avoid disease.

Sedona and Sienna in Santa Fe

Golden Gate Bridge Dog Portraits with Murphy

This San Francisco dog photography session couldn’t have been more magical. I met my clients at Marshall Beach (a less-popular/more secluded beach on the North side of the Golden Gate Bridge - highly recommend!) at exactly 4pm on a Sunday. I had just wrapped up a super busy and fun Instant Doggie Photobooth in Hayes Valley with my assistant, and after a quick bite we zipped across the city to the Marshall Beach parking lot.
