Photo Session with San Diego Vizslas Prim & Track!

I knew my session with San Diego vizslas Prim & Track would be different than most of my photo sessions. For example, my usual pre-session prep routine typically includes charging batteries, formatting memory cards and making sure I have a fresh bag of treats on hand – and that’s just fine for working with, say, a shih tzu. But I prepared for this session by doing a few stretches & jumping jacks, and making sure I’d eaten a good breakfast of carbohydrates! Haha! If you’re unfamiliar with vizslas, take it from me: these dogs are athletes. They’re well-oiled machines, ready to run at breakneck speed as far as they possibly can – and so I knew I’d get a workout, too! Sure enough, we hit the beach and they let loose! And for those of you familiar with my sports photography background, you know I was pretty much in heaven… beautiful dogs with boundless energy, happily jumping in & out of the water and playing in a field of wildflowers? Pinch me! :)

But luckily, their parents have instilled great obedience in Prim & Track, so we were able to combine action photos with family photos and everything in-between. I love working with dogs that know the “stay” command – it makes “posed” images like the one below so much easier & quicker! (so we can get back down to the beach faster, right?!) In short, we had a simply fabulous session together, and I can hardly stand sharing just a few images with you today… so if you want to see more, it’s a good idea to follow the Facebook page! (hint hint! haha!)


Here they are – my favorite pair of San Diego vizslas! :)

Track is one year old and quite the serious boy. Honestly, have you ever seen a more handsome dog??

Prim is two, and she’s happiest when she can chase her toy or hunt in the bushes. Talk about instincts!

Kate & Blake, thank you for a truly wonderful afternoon. I loved spending time with all four of you – and I’m having a blast sorting through the rest of our photos! See you back in the studio soon!  :)
