Pet Portraits:

Baker Beach



THANK YOU for our wonderful and memorable photo shoot, THIRD year in a row! We always feel joy being around you. I will forever cherish these.”

— Josephine L, San Mateo

Candid Portraiture for Life’s Many Messy, Imperfect, Joyous & Beautiful Moments with our Dogs.

Baker Beach is a popular location for the simple reason that it contains one of the most recognized structures in the world. Of course, I’m referring to the beautiful and iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

Baker Beach is a mile-long stretch of beach that lies at the foot of the serpentine cliffs west of the bridge and is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, as well as, the Presidio. For those of you who don’t know, the Presidio was a military base in San Francisco from 1812 to 1997. There are still gun installations at the site, known as the Battery Chamberlin.


Late afternoon and twilight are an excellent time for photography here, and even early morning, if you don’t mind the fog! The beach is dog-friendly, kid-friendly, and even clothing optional-friendly (well way down at the end of the beach!) and is a great place to spend sometime before taking dog pictures or after you’ve finished your pet portraits.

“Thank you so much, we love all the photos!”

When you ready to book your four legged family Playdate session you can either click the ‘contact’ link at the bottom of the page, give me a call at 510.213.8038 or jump straight to our online booking calendar at the ‘book now’ link below.

From there we will discuss the location for your session, talk about how awesome your dog is and help me get to know a little about them to prepare for our time together.


I like to play and have fun. So my sessions are pretty casual and relaxed, running about an hour. I will get a range of photos of you with your dog(s), and the dog(s) by themselves. Nothing is ever forced, I very much go with the flow because having dogs myself I know it’s the only way to get the most genuine (and fun) photos.


We may part ways after your session, but the fun is just beginning. I usually get pretty excited to see what images I captured, so your proofs are generally delivered in less than 2 weeks and displayed in a beautiful online gallery for you to be able to pick your favorites for purchase.

I’m 100% available to help in the image selection and ordering process.


The Pet Playdate session lasts for an hour(ish), includes all members of the same household at no additional charge. The session fee of $175 is payable upon booking, reserves your date on my calendar, covers my time, travel and all post-processing of your images.

Digital packages are purchased after viewing your images and you can get detailed pricing here or if you are ready to get the fun started, just click the book now button below.
