Puppy Photography Session in Carlsbad, CA with Lily the Terrier Mix

Have you ever met a puppy with an old soul? Well I have, and boy did we share an incredible puppy photography session together! Lily the terrier mix is one year old (going on about 12, I think!), and during our photo session she showed me every side of her personality; I saw her puppy curiosity, her snuggly love for her parents, her beautifully stoic seriousness, her goofy run-in-circles-until-I-drop silliness, and finally, a bit of her don’t-take-any-more-pictures-of-me stubbornness! Haha! Lily gave me different expressions in practically every frame I shot, and I’m so excited to dig deeper into her photos and bring out the very best of the best of her sweet brown eyes and scruffy fur. But for now, I just have a sneak peek for you to see, with some of my standout favorite images. But don’t worry – it’s a big one! This session was actually spread out over two days (since puppy attention spans can only last so long), so this is an extra-big sneak peek for her parents. Plus, I’m excited to say that I’ll be seeing Lily again in a few months for a fresh set of puppy photography images to add to this one! So let me introduce you to the cutest little terrier mix with an adorably off-kilter floppy ear!


Can you even handle the cuteness?! That ear is just too much for me!

Whether she was running across the open grass or over the rungs of her agility equipment, Lily gave us more than our fair share of action photos! I think she might have rocket boosters strapped to her feet, just out of sight…

She’s friends with everyone she meets, human or canine… the world is her oyster. Of friendship, of course.

Lily loooooves to hunt geckos! Her terrier heritage really comes out when she’s in the fields of Carlsbad, nose to the ground…

We also spent some relaxing time at home… oh those eyes. Stop it right now. What a snugglebug!

And then Lily came all the way down from Carlsbad to the San Diego studio! I just love the way this little lady steps out.

She looks great on white, gray and black backdrops! I can’t decide which I like better… but I think I’ll keep the black background a surprise for later! :) Here she is, striking a pose on the gray – which really brings out the warm tones in her fur!

Lily, thank you for having the sweetest, biggest eyes and ears that are such a joy to photograph! Starr & John, thank you for an absolutely fabulous couple of afternoons… I can’t tell you how excited I am to visit more locations with you & Lily again in the future! :)
