Happy Tails: Dior and Sophie the Chihuahuas

Del Mar Beach is a beautiful backdrop for this family photo session with  Derek Chad Photography.    Dior and Sophie are both Chihuahuas and are a big part of Tim and Jonah’s family.   They were even in Tim and Jonah’s wedding two years ago.

From Tim and Jonah:  “Our dogs have been our world since we’ve had them. Dior is 13 years old and Sophie is 9 years old.

They make our days so much better, and each has their own personalities.

Beautiful shots! Dior and Sophie are so cute, I love their matching sweaters! What a great looking family!

Abby says:

What a beautiful family! And those matching sweaters are adorable!

Awwwwwwwww they are so cute, love the family picture and the setting is just beautiful

Sonja says:

Yep I feel like they do! Montecristo is in our August wedding and we chose to have our wedding at home because of a lack of pet friendly venues in the city. Love the photos.

Jana Rade says:

Adorable! Quite sure they’re not more spoiled than Cookie is, though. 😉

Such a great couple and some amazing pups! Thanks for sharing these lovely photos and their story.

THis is lovely and amazingly gentle and genuine photoshoot. They care for each other and their dogs so much, and it shines out through the pictures.

What a great looking family! You must have so much fun getting to know these people.

    Sadly, I don’t get to meet most of the people and their dogs that I feature. But I know the photographers really enjoy working with their clients. Derek (the photographer who took these photos) also photographed Tim and Jonah’s wedding. I think repeat clients are one of the best referrals for a photographer.

I simply adore your blog! And I agree — all dogs should be photographed professionally. This post is so beautiful, not just for the stunning backdrop and gorgeous photos, but also because it is so gratifying to see a couple so adorably invested in their canine members of the family. I have an Etsy shop where I make handmade dog snoods and scarves, and just recently began making wedding bow ties and flowery collars because I just love the idea of including dogs in weddings. Thanks for sharing these great photos and congrats to the happy couple!

I just love these- some of my favourite things – cute dogs, ocean views and a happy couple who clearly care for their fur family. Really beautiful.

So much cuteness with those matching pink hoodies and beautiful photos!

Robin says:

These two pups are so precious! It is really obvious that they love their owners. I’m so glad that they were able to be a part of their owners’ marriage. Having your pets there would be extra special.

I SO LOVE when pats are a part of family photos and celebrations. I mean, I spend more time with my dogs than anyone else in the world and I cannot imagine not having them as a part of big events. This is awesome

What a beautiful family! Sophie and Dior are adorable, I love that they were in the wedding, that’s always so special. The photos are gorgeous!
Love & Biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them
