Happy Friday! If you don’t already have the travel bug, this session might change that. This spectacular dog-friendly engagement session in Waimanalo, Hawaii from VIVIDfotos, features a beautiful family, including Otto the Min Pin mix, as well as some breathtaking scenery.
From Melissa: “Kathy and Evan adopted Otto a few years back, and he is loved to pieces! He had a wonderful time walking around the beach, smelling things and splashing around in the water! We couldn’t get over how cute it was!” From Kathy and Evan: “Otto is a 7-year-old miniature pinscher mix. He was given to us from a family friend at three months old. One of Otto’s sisters is eight pounds, so we have no clue what makes him so large. He thinks he’s a lap dog even though he weighs 30 pounds.
We live in Hawaii, so naturally, he loves to sunbathe, go hiking, and run along the shoreline. For a period of time, we lived in Oklahoma, and he’s had a chance to play in the snow, but he’s not a fan. We are so happy to have Otto in our life, and we couldn’t have asked for a better dog!”
While I can’t guarantee you’ll see Otto if you visit Waimanalo, I think it would still be a trip worth taking.

He is adorable, am chuckling that his sister is smaller than him LOL so yes it would be interesting to know what mix he really is, but on the other hand the smile on his face says it all. What a wonderful place to live and WOW the beach is amazing.

I just love beach photos! These turned out wonderful. And I am not a fan of playing in the snow either!
These are wonderful photos. We recently got a new puppy, and I want to take some photos of him!
Otto seemed to understand the context of each photo. Or is this a super talented photographer?
Loving this min pin, adorable little doggy. I love seeing the photos you take with the beloved dogs in the photos, they are truly a member of a family. Love the happiness that radiates in these pictures. High quality photos too, fabulous!
Adorable pictures! Seeing these pictures makes me want to go to the beach right about now and just relax and enjoy the views.
Otto is so photogenic! I swear, it’s like he knows he’s the Cindy Crawford of doggy modeling ♥
oh my goodness these pictures could not be any cuter- love when people incorporate them in to their pictures and engagement sessions like this!
Otto is so cute! He seems like he is full of positive energy. Just look at his gorgeous smile! These photos will be a great memory for a very long time. 🙂

Otto is adorable. I’ve always wanted a min pin but because they are in the Doberman breed line most landlords are picky. He is so well behaved too. My dog would have never sat there so calm n still. I have a Yorkie (he has his own Instagram page if you like stalking dog accounts: https://www.instagram.com/buddytheyorkie2014) and he is a mess but I love him like a child. It’s been a while since I have done a photoshoot with him. I struggle with the extreme heat so going outside during the summer isn’t fun unless I’m at the pool.

He is such a cute dog! I love all of the family pictures with the dog on the beach. It’s amazing how much our dogs become so close and important to us.
