Jackie & Leia | Huntington Beach Portraits

A couple weeks ago I met up with Jackie and her adorable wheaten terrier, Leia, at a park in Huntington Beach. This was my first time working with a pet other than my own, so I was a little unsure of what the outcome would be, but I welcomed the new challenge. I know for me, my pets are like my kids so it's really important to me to have a few good photos of them. It was so much fun being able to give this to someone else...
