Fiesta Island Dog Photography with Butterbean the Lab!

Butterbean is a dog that’s fully labrador, in every sense of the word: he loves water, can’t get enough of fetch, and is always boundlessly happy! So it was my absolute pleasure to photograph him recently at Fiesta Island in San Diego! It’s one of his favorite places in the city, since he & his mom visit there pretty often to play fetch and make new friends. But we found a part of the island that was all to ourselves; because as I mentioned in this blog post about dogs in parks, I don’t often hold photo sessions at dog parks/beaches, just since that usually means adding a few dozen guests & distractions to the experience – which doesn’t exactly make for better photos! So we let all the focus be on Butterbean in our secluded little area of Fiesta Island, and I think we have some really great images to show for it. For his part, Bean didn’t mind at all – he was just happy to be there with his mom, playing fetch and eating treats! And really, for a dog, what better way is there to spend an afternoon? :)


Butterbean has a bow tie! How adorable is that?! To start this photo session, we took a few photos on dry land, bow tie and all, before letting him loose in the water…

Of course, no Fiesta Island dog photography session would be complete without a few action photos… and Butterbean didn’t disappoint! Fetch is one of his favorite things in the world; can’t you just see the enthusiasm in his eyes?

His mom says that when his tongue sticks out sideways, that means Bean is really happy. So even though there’s lots of drool in this close-up, I love it!

We even stayed long enough to watch the sun go down… it was a beautiful night.
