Santa Cruz Photo Shoot with Hendrix

Hendrix is a sweet four month old puppy that I expected to be much smaller than he was! It was rainy day in Santa Cruz so we did almost the entire session inside but at least there was some awesome, colorful furniture to use as props and we had a great time coming up with creative ways to get some interesting shots indoors. Check out some of my favorites:
