Josie & Gracie ~ {Pensacola Pet Photography by Allison Shamrell}

Photographing Josie and Gracie was a Father’s Day gift for one very lucky Dad in the Pensacola area. And while Gracie (the sweet little pomeranian) is her mama’s girl, Josie (the gorgeous golden retriever) is really her father’s favorite, so the session was mostly about her. Since I have a soft spot for goldens, and Josie happened to be fantastic at posing, the shoot was a lot of fun! Guess what: this was the last Father’s Day this family will have with ONLY four-legged children!! They’re about to have a two-legged addition, and I couldn’t be happier for them all.


I had a lot of fun being sneaky about this session! Some of you might remember the Sneak Peek of these two, and I only posted it after their mom said their dad definitely wouldn’t be poking around my site. I guess you could say that’s the advantage of being the only pet photographer around (or at least the only photographer whose business is 90% pets): it’s not incredibly hard to keep secrets like this one, since so many people don’t know I exist! (I’m working on that, of course, since it’s not actually a good thing… but it was in this case!) So I didn’t do many of the things I normally do: tag the owners in photos of the dogs on Facebook, visit the clients’ homes to show them their images after post-processing, send their products directly to their house so they don’t have to wait an extra second to get them… the whole thing was quite surreptitious! But I can promise you this: if you need a birthday/anniversary/any-old-day gift for someone who has a dog they’re crazy about, you’ll have WAY more fun with me than picking up a gift card to Petsmart!


Enjoy the video – and Kari, thank you for allowing me to photograph your beautiful dogs. You had a great gift idea :)




Oh, and here’s an outtake image that was pretty popular on Facebook! I gave it the only caption it could possibly have: “Narf!”
