Rhodesian Ridgebacks are the breed of choice for sisters Sarah and Haley and their mom Sherry, who came for a visit during the fires up north. We decided to do their beach session near their home in Imperial Beach so that their dogs Mila and Fasi could be included, but the first part of the hour was very sunny! Since my photography style avoids direct sun, I was scrambling for shade. We found a little spot a few blocks away and got some pretty headshots and rock backgrounds. I’m always amazed at how the right light and some beautiful subjects can make a run-of-the-mill parking lot a workable location for portraits! (Scroll down to see a pull-back of the location.)
Once the sun hit the clouds, we hit the beach and had fun running around with the pups. I love the favorites they chose:
Here’s where we started the session, hiding from the sun and getting some pretty backlight, too.
