Meet Ruby

So, as it happens, we are dog sitting again! (remember Sunny, the cute Maltese Poodle that we had as a house guest back in April?)
This time, we have a beautiful 2.5 year old Boxer/Shepherd mix staying with us.  Her name is Ruby.  Ruby is VERY shy and is afraid of strangers, but if you spend some time playing with her, she can quickly warm up to you and become the most affectionate companion. She has brought us so much fun and joy in the last few days. Her family is coming home from vacation tomorrow, and I thought I would post a blog about Ruby before saying goodbye to her.

On Ruby’s first day here, after she had relaxed a bit after our first morning walk, the mailman came and dropped the mails in through our front door. This totally spooked Ruby; she ran straight inside the restroom (all the way back in the house :p) and stayed there for the entire afternoon.  Poor girl…

She was a whole lot more relaxed on the 2nd day.

We took her out to a park for a walk. She was soooo happy!!

It’s important to stay hydrated in this hot weather.  Btw, I think she looks like a fox in this photo.

Outdoor Maternity Session:: Reena and Hero Part II

Awhile ago we blogged about Reena and Hero’s first maternity session. For those of you who haven’t read the post, Hero bought a maternity photo package as a birthday/anniversary gift for Reena.  The package entails a mini 30-min studio session every month to document the changes during pregnancy, as well as a full portrait session outdoors to celebrate and capture their love for each other at this exciting time of their lives.  Last Sunday we held the outdoors portrait session at the beautiful El Dorado East Park located in the city of Long Beach. Reena and Hero went earlier during the day to picnic with friends, and joined us before sunset for the photo session. They looked adorable and full of joy with the anticipation of their baby girl!

Without further ado, here are some of our favorites from the day:

They opted for a casual everyday look, to let us capture their genuine, natural, fun-loving personalities.

Hmm… wonder what secrets did the baby tell?

You can see how much Hero loves her by the way he looks at her:
