Photo Session with Roxy & Ruthie in Fairbanks Ranch!

I shared a fun photo session with two adorable dogs recently! I’m thrilled to introduce you to Ruthie & Roxy, two dogs (with totally opposite personalities) who live in the Fairbanks Ranch area of San Diego! Ruthie is a 12-year-old greyhound, rescued from the racing track in Tucson, AZ. She loves to relax, of course, and is definitely the calm dog of the family. In fact, this used to be a greyhounds-only family, but then Roxy wriggled her way into their hearts! Roxy is a 4-year-old pug-dachshund mix with a surprising amount of energy… she wanted to play fetch for our entire photo session! She’s a total goofball and always ready for her next walk. As you can probably tell, I had a blast photographing both dogs & their distinctive personalities. After rescheduling their session due to rain (in San Diego, it feels so silly to say!) we were able to get together at their house for an early-morning sunrise session recently. And what made this session even more fun: it’s a surprise for their mom! Ruth & Roxy’s dad contacted me weeks ago about giving the photos to her as a Christmas gift, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to help make their holidays even more special! :)  So without further ado… here are just a few photos to give their parents a “sneak peek” at the results from our session!


This is Roxy! Can you handle that face, and those eyes? She is too cute!
