Family Pet Photography in San Diego, CA: Seamus the Norwich Terrier

This family pet photography session holds a special place in my heart. Seamus’ mom Lisa contacted me months ago, and we booked a date – but then she got bad news about her husband’s deployment. He would be held up, not making it home in time for our session date – or even for Thanksgiving. As a former military wife (well, I suppose I’m kind of still current, since Mr. Shamrell is in the Naval Reserves here in San Diego now) my heart went out to her. Big time. So I told her to call me as soon as her hubby was back in town, and I’d rearrange my schedule however would be necessary so that we could make their family/pet photo session happen. Fast-forward to last week, and he finally got back! Just in time! This was my very last photo session before my personal Christmas break, haha! I was thrilled to be able to fit them in, and extra-thrilled that Lisa’s hubby made it back for our session. Because while we kept the focus on Seamus – the adorable Norwich terrier with an attitude – this was a family photo session too, and it just wouldn’t have been complete without him.


So let me introduce you! This is Seamus!

He wasn’t a big fan of the studio, though, so before long we headed for the great outdoors! Then he really got to stretch his legs!

I love that scruffy little face… and I can’t complete this blog post without introducing you to Seamus’ sister, Saoirse (pronounced SEER-sha)! She’s 6 months old and was (mostly) happy to join us for a few photos. How cute is this family?!

Lisa & Jesse, I had an absolute blast during our session – and I know Seamus had a great time too! Haha! Thank you so much for introducing me to San Dieguito County Park – my new favorite location – and I can’t wait to get together again in January!  :)
