Mr. Higgins the Yellow Lab! (La Jolla/Del Mar Pet Photography)

I can’t really describe it, I can’t put my finger on it… but I can tell you this: some sessions are really special. :)

Maybe it was because Mr. Higgins (the handsome yellow lab and star of the show!) was already experienced at posing for the camera! This wasn’t his first photo session, and I think it shows! He was always ready to flash that handsome labrador smile, and his soft yellow coloring amongst the bright blues of the water and sky came together to create a to-die-for combination of colors!

Or maybe it was because the beach is Mr Higgins’ happy place. It’s where he and his mom go every week, to relax, unwind, and chase his ball. Oh, the ball – this is Mr. Higgins’ obsession! He can’t be more than a few inches from his ball at all times, and if the waves sweep it out to sea, he’ll swim out there to get it back! He’s fearless! At one point, we wanted a few photos without the ball, so his mom put it in her bag on the sand – and he promptly ran back, dug it out of her bag and brought it back to us! What a goofball!

Whatever the reason(s) may be, I had a fabulous photo session with Mr. Higgins. And in fact, his mom originally wanted to book my 3-hour session, because she wasn’t sure about how he’d do in a more limited time frame – just like many of my clients! But I reassured her that my one-hour session was probably more than enough time, and that’s what we did – and I have a feeling we’re going to end up with plenty of incredible images! :)


Here’s the handsome boy! Don’t you love that smile?!

Mr. Higgins was in the water the entire time – he’s practically a fish!

And to top it all off, we saw the kind of sunset I pray for… it was an absolutely perfect evening.

Carina, thank you so much for introducing me to your handsome boy! He did spectacularly well, and I can’t wait to show you the rest of our photos soon! :)
