I love photographing senior dogs. There’s something so graceful and wise about them. Last week I had the pleasure of taking photos of some very sweet seniors. (I’m going to combine these 2 photo sessions into one post because I still have 6 more sneak peek posts due)
First is Lola, a 15 year old German Shepherd mix. She was found on the streets of downtown LA and rescued by her amazing owners. She looks GOOD for her age, doesn’t she? Lola basically hated the camera. She much preferred staring at all the other dogs at the park and didn’t perk up until I brought out some dehydrated beef treats. And this is exactly why I bring a variety of treats with me on shoots - dehydrated chicken, dehydrated beef, dry biscuit treats, and peanut butter jerky treats. Because you never know if you’re going to get a picky baby!

Next up is sweet Jenny. Jenny is a 15 year old mini shnauzer. Jenny is hard of hearing and can barely see, but her sense of smell is still IMPECCABLE. I controlled her eyeline by holding up a treat and she followed it around as if her eyes were still 20/20.
She has a hard time standing on the slippery wood floor, so she ends up sprawled out like this:
Jenny adores her mama:
Bob, thank you so much for a wonderful photo shoot last week! Lola is so beautiful. I hope you love the photos.
Peyton, thank you for choosing me to be your pet photographer. It was a pleasure meeting you and sweet Jenny!
Stay tuned for the rest of your photos!
