Me with my muse, Bailey!

About Allison Shamrell Photography:

Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Allison, and I work in San Diego, CA, capturing the personalities of dogs and cats of all sizes & temperaments. I do photo sessions on location and in-studio, wherever my clients prefer! My photography style is natural, playful & soulful.

Here on my blog, I tell the stories of recent sessions and events. You might even find an insight or two into the behind-the-scenes side of my business! I hope you have fun looking around!

If you would like to receive a quick little email to let you know when I publish a new post, see the button at the bottom left of this page! Thanks! :)

Pet Christmas Cards & Holiday Mini-Sessions!

The holidays are coming up quickly, and if you’re in the San Diego area & hoping to include your dog in your Christmas cards, I have a great solution for you!

Dexter’s Deli & I are hosting holiday mini-sessions, to give you a great family photo & help you get those Christmas cards in the mail! 


Take a look at this year’s adorable card designs! (featuring Bailey, of course!)

I’ll keep this short & sweet, so you can get all the details and get back to enjoying your – ahem – November. (hey, it never hurts to plan ahead!)


~   Saturday, November 16th I’ll be at Dexter’s Deli in Del Mar, CA, accepting 15-minute sessions for $85 each. They include plenty of shooting time to get a few photos of the whole family, a few of just your dog(s), and any other arrangements of people/pets you’d like. You’ll walk away with a high-res, printable digital file to make your own cards, or you can order the custom-designed cards above for a small additional fee. Call the store to reserve your time slot! (if there are any left!) Their number is 858-792-3707.

            ~   (Tip for regulars: tell them you’ve been to Dexter’s before… There’s a special deal for loyal customers!)

~   Saturday & Sunday, December 7th & 8th I’ll be at my studio (3251 Adams Ave, Suite C, San Diego, CA 92116). These 15-minute mini-sessions will be $95 each and come with either two digital images or 12 custom-designed Christmas cards! The normal price for a session like this would be over $130, but it’s the holidays (my first Christmas in San Diego!) and I want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to make a Christmas card that’ll win the spot of honor on their relatives’ fridges. :)


(As opposed to Dexter’s ivy wall background, studio photos will look more like this:)

Questions? Concerns? Email me,, or leave a comment on this blog post.

I hope to see you & your dogs either this Saturday, or in December! :)


(Just a quick footnote: I only have a couple of spots left for full-length sessions in time for the holidays, as well… and those clients would have access to the custom card designs shown above too! So if you think you might want more than a digital file & cards, definitely send me an email and we’ll chat about getting a date on our calendars!)
