Rachel and Rocky :: Seal Beach Pet Photography

When I first met with Rachel to chat about their upcoming session and get to know them, I knew it was going to be an awesome collaboration. Rocky is a sweet, easygoing chub of a pug that people can’t help smiling back at. Rachel works for a major nail polish company based in the area (you might remember I have an addiction?) and loves Star Wars and South Park, so we were obviously meant to be besties.:)Her dad was visiting from the East Coast, so we all got together one gorgeous afternoon on Main Street in Seal Beach. There’s really nothing like that beautiful late afternoon beach light.

These three made my job so easy, it’s hard to take any credit for these images. I’m so lucky to have amazing clients that keep me smiling through the whole session!

I have no idea how she says no to this face. None.

If this amount of cuteness came running at you, you have to snuggle it. It’s a universal rule. Kind of like when a tiny child hands you their play phone and says it’s for you, you’re required to hold it to your ear and say hello.

I also have to say a huge Thank You to Rachel for the giant goodie bag of nail polish she brought for me. I died and went to girly heaven! I change my color pretty much every week and still haven’t tried them all yet.

I have yet to meet a pug I didn’t like. They are such funny little dogs!

I must be getting old, you guys. I straight up started off calling this post “MARCH Desktop Background”, and I find myself marveling more and more at how quickly the days pass. Must be a post-30 thing.

Anyway, what’s not to love about this Twain quote? One of my favorite authors, quietly calling people out in the simplest way possible.

I’m a little slow off the starting block this month, but I design these for myself anyway so I thought I’d share.:)

These words from Lincoln are deceptively simple, but I found them so meaningful. It’s pretty much my life philosophy (well, most days, anyway), except phrased more poetically than I ever could.

Finally, a belated new desktop, thanks to my wifi being out most of this week. Oh, the joys of technology! But on the plus side, I got a lot more done that I would have otherwise.;)

Margaret Mead was a ground breaking cultural anthropologist in the early 20th century, and when I read these love letter excerpts to her longtime love Ruth Benedict I was really struck by these words. No doubt because they’re what I’ve been feeling myself in my current relationship. But the more I think about them, the more I feel they’re universal – the best relationship is the one where you can’t wait to grow old together, right?

At any rate, hope you enjoy! If you want something a bit more Valentine’s Day-ish, there’s always last year’s desktop.

About Time! But worth the wait – this is lovely!

I’m starting the year off fresh with a photo of some old beat up Chucks. Makes perfect sense, right?:)I couldn’t help pairing it with these inspiring words by the brilliant George Eliot, from a letter she wrote to a friend in 1844 (I highly recommend reading the rest of it).

Hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s! Was 2013 lucky for you or are you super ready for a fresh start? After how awesome this past year turned out to be for me, anything else is really just icing on the cake.
