Madison the Golden Retriever! (San Diego Pet Photography)

Have you ever met a dog that’s simply BURSTING with joy? I mean happy beyond belief, can’t-even-handle-it joyous, constantly full-body-wiggling due to a never-stop-wagging tail, whose huge smile and relentless cheer can always brighten your day?

That dog is Madison!

I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with this ridiculously happy pup recently, and she kept me smiling the entire time, haha! I love working with happy dogs & happy people, so I was in for a treat when I met up with Madison and her mom Debbie. We had a fabulous time exploring Balboa Park, stopping by Coronado, and finishing up under a dazzling sunset on the beach in La Jolla. I learned that Madison has a hard time staying still – because life is simply too exciting to just stay in one place, haha! Her antics certainly kept me on my toes, but I’m loving the resulting photos… because capturing joy like this may not be the easiest task, but it sure is worth the effort. This gorgeous girl is radiating happiness! (Make sure your screen doesn’t overheat! Haha!)


We started our photo session in Balboa Park, and I knew I wanted to find some soft, pretty flowers to frame Madison’s lovely smile! Can’t you just tell that she’s a total sweetheart?

Turns out, I was able to trick Madison into “posing” for a moment or two… and I’m glad I did! The sun gave her the most amazing halo…

Last but not least, we went to Madison’s favorite place: the beach. Don’t come between Madison and her tennis ball! :)

Debbie, thank you so much for a fabulous afternoon! I had a great time with both of you, and I’m excited to show you the rest of our photos soon! :)
