Chula Vista Pet Photography Session with Rufus the Border Collie Mix!

I’m so excited to share this blog post with you! This Chula Vista pet photography session was incredibly special to me, for 2 different reasons… first of all, it was my first Chula Vista session! Ever! Can you believe that?! Since I moved to San Diego last year, and opened my studio doors in August, I’ve been busy with clients in San Diego, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, downtown, Lakeside… all over the place, really, except for south of the city! So I was thrilled to finally have an excuse to explore Chula Vista. Reason #2 that this session was so special: it’s a secret Mother’s Day gift! So if you recognize the dog in these photos, don’t tell his mom!! I love celebrating Mother’s Day with the moms of 4-legged children; I always describe my Bailey as my daughter, and right now, she’s curled up in a ball, sleeping at my feet. In my opinion, dog moms (especially my awesome clients) deserve recognition, just like moms of human kids; Mother’s Day is for them too! So Rufus’ mom will receive a custom 8×10 print of her handsome boy on Mother’s Day, and then she’ll get to visit my studio and see allllllll the rest of Rufus’ photos! How fun does that sound?!


So let me introduce you to her handsome boy, Rufus! He’s a border collie mix, and as far as any other breeds in his heritage, your guess is as good as mine. But how distinctive and striking is he?! (Also – did you have any doubt that Chula Vista pet photography sessions can have gorgeous backgrounds? Because I might have… but now I think this is my new favorite location!)
