Loca’s Portrait Session

A few weeks ago, I had the honor and pleasure of photographing Loca and her Daddy in the studio.

Loca’s story does not have a pleasant beginning.  Rescued from a horrible situation, she arrived at her new home severely underweight and scared.

But when you look at her today, she has the fairy tale ending that every animal desires.  Loca is surrounded by people who love her and now thrives in this new chapter of her life.

Enjoy this breathtaking pup.
