Diane is an amazing photographer working out of a studio in Half Moon Bay, California. She has a knack for capturing not only the personality of the pugs in front of her lens but the relationships between the pugs and their humans, even if there are no human faces in the frame. Bubbles + Chester are no exception. You can see every ounce of love these pugs have for their humans.
From Diane of Fog Dog Studios
Meet Bubble and Chester. Bubbles (little black Pug) was a rescue. An older little lady, she had a pretty rough go. Her Fur-ever parents guessed that at she was a senior Pug. They fell head over heels for her crocked smile and little tongue that spent more time out to the side than in her mouth. She adored her daddy which we captured during out session together. Then there’s Chester! A young Pug by all means of the word and goofy!!!! They were so cute together!
Mom and dad brought their fur-pugs in for a studio session as a gift to themselves. They wanted to make sure they had photos of Bubbles while she was still young at heart and before Chester really grew up! They loved the graphic style and really loved everything about black and white. Even though we photographed in color, they really wanted the images converted to black and white.
ABOUT FOG DOG STUDIOS
Hi I’m Diane Costello, as a Fine Art Portrait Photographer, I specialize in Dogs. I am located in beautiful Half Moon Bay, California. In under ten years I earned my Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman Degrees through Professional Photographers of America and am also a Certified Professional Photographer. I am a published author of Top Dogs; Portraits and Stories. My personal life is a great blend with my business life. I have been photographing people, places and things for over 20 years now and I still love the process. I love photography. I love light. I love color. My original focus in photography started with Fine Art Landscapes and Still Life, primarily in black and white, yes, using film. Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would move over to the portrait side of photography…never, ever imagined I would be spending my days working with and photographing dogs and their people…I love what I do and am very passionate about those special portraits. The goofy expressions, the serious look, the bright eyes and wagging tails of your dog, those quiet moments of complete and unconditional love between you and your dog.
