Check out the latest issue of Los Angeles Confidential Magazine -

The gorgeous and talented Rose McGowan wrote a piece on her favorite doggie things in Los Angeles and gave Shine Pet Photos a shout:

Since you’re probably curious, let me answer some questions: Yes, Rose is gorgeous in person. I would die for her skin. The Gods are sometimes very unfair. Yes, she is totally awesome, kind, and sweet in person. Meeting really nice, generous celebs in person is always such a treat. And yes, Rose is a huge dog lover and absolutely dotes on her Boston Terriers, as she is famously known for.

Thank you Rose for the lovely article on life in Los Angeles with your dogs, and for mentioning me in the piece. And thanks to all the special people behind the scenes who made this all possible (you know who you are!)

I met Koby and Buddy back in December and we had such a fun photoshoot in Santa Monica. I don’t know if I’ll ever get sick of LA’s temperate weather and just love that these were taken in the dead of “winter!”

Buddy and Kobe have since moved to Asia with their mom and dad so I’m so glad we had the chance to meet this beautiful morning.

My clients got this last shot as a huuuuuuuuuuuge canvas! In this case, bigger is definitely better.

It’s been quite a hiatus from regular blogging but (I THINK) I’m back! And I’m thrilled to share some photos of 2 adorable little dog sisters named Bebe and Ruby. We had a photoshoot in celebration of their Mama’s birthday in Pasadena on a beautiful college campus. I love it when guys surprise their ladies with a photo shoot with me. Major high-five, guys, major high-five.

Thanks for a great shoot and happy birthday Tina!

mama | los angeles dog photography

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Holy cow, has it really been a month since I’ve blogged? It’s been insanely busy around here since October and I haven’t had a chance to share any photos from the last 12 clients I’ve photographed!

But this session was really special and I just had to share.

Mama was an 18 year old chihuahua rescued from the shelter less than a year ago by Kim, my amazing Studio Manager Extraordinaire. As any 18 year old dog might be, Mama was a little rickety and had her share of health problems. But don’t let her age fool you- she still had a lot of fight in her and was the feistiest little senior dog around.

I have the utmost admiration for people like Kim who rescue senior dogs, especially at such an advanced age. It’s only human nature to want to share life with a dog for as long as possible - so to adopt a senior dog is such a selfless, heroic act. I am so grateful for Kim and others who are willing to provide a loving, safe environment for the end of a sweet, older dog’s life.

We had our photoshoot towards the end of October. Mama was so present that day, like she knew we were doing something really special. She really connected with the camera, as you’ll see in the shots below. And it was just beautiful watching Kim and Mama together.

Exactly a month after our shoot, Mama passed away peacefully in Kim’s arms.

Mama looked like a little bat and had the cutest little ears that curled at the ends.

Thank you Kim. You are an inspiration and I’m proud to call you my friend.
