Sunset Cliffs Pet Photography Session with Peanut!

This Sunset Cliffs pet photography session was a very relaxed, slow-paced session… because that’s Peanut’s regular speed! You see, Peanut is almost 15 years old, and she doesn’t move terribly fast anymore. That’s okay, of course – she’s earned the right to go slow! :)  Peanut is a total sweetheart, and a classic “Heinz 57” mix of breeds. (Which is to say that there’s no telling what kind of dog she is!) She lives with her parents in the Ocean Beach/Point Loma area of San Diego, just a few blocks away from Sunset Cliffs. Se we started our session in Peanut’s backyard, amidst familiar surroundings & lush, comfortable grass, so Peanut would be completely comfortable. And then we headed out to the cliffs, her favorite walking spot! She showed me “the arch”, and we even got to see a few teenagers take a flying leap! (As a non-native to San Diego, I was pretty impressed, until Peanut’s mom told me that everyone makes that jump when they’re young, haha!) We enjoyed a picture-perfect sunset together, and I think Peanut really enjoyed being the center of attention. (When I didn’t give her a treat fast enough, she would eventually start barking at me! Old dogs have attitude too!)


I love it when senior dogs smile.

She struck a regal pose for me on Sunset Cliffs…

… and eventually we found a cute old fence and a gorgeous sunset sky to pose in front of. Peanut moves slowly these days, but that’s okay – that happy smile & those floppy ears are worth the wait! :)
