Lola - Houston Fall Pet Photography

Pumpkin spice. 

It's September in Houston, and pumpkin spice is the only indication that fall is almost here.  Because the leaves sure as heck aren't changing color anytime soon!  With temperatures still in the high 80s, I order my ICED pumpkin spice drink and dream that one day soon I'll get to wear my riding boots and a scarf. 

Speaking of leaves changing colors, last September I was out location scouting and found this beautiful spot in downtown Houston where the leaves had created a lovely orange and yellow blanket on the sidewalk.  I was thrilled!

Fast forward one week later, I showed up to the same location, getting ready for my photo session with Lola, and heard a terrible noise: the steady hum of gas-powered lawn equipment.  Sure enough, I ran over to that once-gorgeous-staircase-covered-in-beautiful-fall-color and to my horror, saw the groundskeeper blowing off the very last of my coveted leaves.  Noooooo!

Colorful fall leaves or not, Lola rocked her session and had a great time on her playdate in downtown Houston.  And I did find a very small spattering of leaves:

My fall schedule is filling up!  If you want to schedule a photo session before the holidays, get in touch soon!

Sasha the French Bulldog - Houston Pet Photography

Meet Sasha, a 7-year-old black Frenchie diva!  We had our session in a downtown Houston park.

This last image is one I had in my head for a while.  You see, photographers can't help but walk around and take notes of their surroundings and build up a mental list of new shots to try - whether it's a new subject, new location, new angle, new lighting, or something else.  Lucky for me, Sasha was the perfect dog to help me achieve this vision!
