Please welcome San Diego pet photographer Allison Shamrell of Allison Shamrell Photography to the session spotlight!

These are two of the most gorgeous rescue dogs I’ve ever met! But for as similar as they look physically, they have incredibly distinct personalities – Tate (the boy, with lighter coloring & longer fur) has come a long, long way in becoming less dog-reactive since his mom adopted him a few years ago. They’ve worked hard for him not to freak out upon seeing another dog, even at a distance… and today, you’d never guess that it was an issue he struggled with so much! His mom Robbin has done an incredible job helping him overcome his fears! Skyler, on the other hand, is a happy-go-lucky puppy who’s “a sweetheart 95% of the time”, Robbin likes to say! Haha! Luckily, she was a sweetheart 100% of the time for our photo session – and I never got tired of photographing her beautiful smile. (Seriously – I think this pup could be a doggie model!) Regardless, both dogs are wonderful, fluffy lovebugs and I had an absolute blast playing with – I mean, photographing them! 🙂
