Me with my muse, Bailey!

About Allison Shamrell Photography:

Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Allison, and I work in San Diego, CA, capturing the personalities of dogs and cats of all sizes & temperaments. I do photo sessions on location and in-studio, wherever my clients prefer! My photography style is natural, playful & soulful.

Here on my blog, I tell the stories of recent sessions and events. You might even find an insight or two into the behind-the-scenes side of my business! I hope you have fun looking around!

So, maybe it’s silly for me to post about this, but as you can see, I have a new blog! It is way spiffier than my last one, and let me explain why!

  1. The picture-scrolling-flash-thingy at the top! Yes, that’s the official term. Did you know you can click on the photo of each animal and be taken to their blog post?
  2. Look how  w i d e this screen is! Although my photos from previous sessions are the same size they were before, now I can take over most of your monitor with my new colorful photos. Yahoo!
  3. I got to add a few more pages. So now you can read a revised About Allison section, a Local Resources page if you’re thinking of adopting, and an FAQ with questions that I’m positive you’ve asked yourself. Plus there’s a direct link to my portfolio website– pretty much a one-stop shop!
  4. There are fun things at the bottom of the page! You get to see my last five tweets, a (clickable) tag cloud showing what I blog about the most, and a search bar to find out exactly how many shoots on a beach I’ve done, for example.

I made a new logo! Do you like it?

It’s the beautiful mug of my dog Bailey, and I wanted to isolate her ears, eyes, nose and mouth because these are her core features. I mean, think about it- about 99.9% of other dogs out there have all of these too, and I think these body parts are exactly how our pets (and dogs especially) express emotion.

I mean, think about it! I bet you can see these same actions/emotions in your dog:

  • Ears back = I’m scared or unsure about what’s going on
  • Ears up = What’s going on? I may not know but I’m happy about it!
  • Eyes half closed = I hear you moving around and I want to know what you’re doing, but I won’t do anything about it because I’m tired
  • Eyes wide open = Let’s go for a WALK!
  • Nose sniffing = I am extremely happy because there are interesting things to smell here
  • Mouth open, tongue way out = Whew, I’m exhausted! That was a great trip to the dog beach!
  • Mouth closed, eyes wide = Why can’t I have some of your roast beef?
  • Mouth half-open, lips turned in so teeth are barely showing = I am ready to spring into action!

And that’s not even scratching the surface of body language and what dogs do with their legs, tails, etc. I believe dogs’ faces are where we see their emotion, and since that’s what I intend to capture in every single session, I felt it fitting to include the face of my little muse as my new logo. You’ll start to see it around here, and I’d love to know your thoughts on it.

My new website launches tomorrow and I’m super excited about it. Just saying.
