Please welcome Phoenix based pet photographer, and Hair of the Dog Retreat alumni, Dawn Rotta to the Session Spotlight!

Recently, we met up with the Rowe family for their outdoor session or what I call OVER THE TOP fun! We began in Joelle & Steve’s beautiful backyard so we could include all the furries in their family (“baby” Pete,  “big sister” Stella, and resident kitties, Billie & Fred) and then we ventured down the street to their gem of a community park where I sat back with my long lens and let happy unfold with a backdrop of gorgeous light from the setting sun.
