Love in Long Beach

This family was the highest bidder for a session I donated to the Seal Beach Animal Care Center’s wine tasting and auction fundraiser a few months ago, and I was thrilled when they said they wanted to do a session in their own backyard. My favorite kind! She’s been volunteering at the shelter for years and of course all the pets are rescues.

When I arrived one Sunday last month to find they live in a super cute historic home in Long Beach, I knew we were going to have a great time. Their lush oasis of a backyard was the perfect setting to photograph them, two by two – two cats, two dogs, two kids, and two adults, all full of love.

Can you tell we had fun? They were such a joy to work with. And I’d kill for mischievous dimples like little mister has. :)
