Studio Pet Photography for Dogs & Cats – Featuring the Animals of La Jolla Colony Vet Hospital!

This studio pet photography session had its beginnings a few weeks ago, at the Helen Woodward Animal Center Puppy Love 5k event… I was chatting with many of the runners & walkers as they came back from the race, and a woman with an adorable, border-collie-mix dog walks up to my booth! I came out from behind my table to meet her dog, we get to talking, and eventually she introduces herself as a veterinarian and the new owner of La Jolla Colony Veterinary Hospital! She asked me about working together on some new decor for her clinic’s lobby, and of course I was happy to oblige! I absolutely love working with local businesses, and if I can give fellow entrepreneurs a few pieces of art that makes them love their business just a little bit more – especially if it features their own pets! – then I consider it a match made in heaven! :)

So imagine my surprise when she told me that I wouldn’t just be working with her border collie mix, Mony – but also with her terrier mix dog and her two cats! Cats in the studio?! That’s only happened a few times before, with – ahem – mixed results, so I knew this would be a verrrrry interesting session! Let me introduce you to the stars of the show…

This is Mony (left) and Daisy Mae (right)! Mony is a border collie/spaniel mix, and Daisy is… well… a big question mark! She has terrier in her heritage, that’s for sure, but after that your guess is as good as mine. Mony is 5 and Daisy is 10, but both have the energy level of a 1-year-old! I just love these two!

And here are the brave felines that came along, too! Just wait until you hear their names – and I don’t mind telling you, since their mom is a vet and you know she loves them very much (even if their names don’t exactly suggest that they’re beloved members of the family): Booger & Skidmark! Haha!! I laughed out loud when I heard that! Even more interesting: you’d never guess it from their photos, but these kitties are actually littermates! Despite their hesitance, I really enjoyed working with them both – we put the “pet” in studio pet photography session, rather than giving all the attention to their canine siblings… cats deserve their time in the studio, too!

Sarah & Ben, I loved getting together with you both – thank you for bringing everyone in to the studio (I know it wasn’t easy)! I can’t wait to see these fluffy faces on the walls of your new clinic! :)
