Boogie’s Photo Shoot with Jesse Freidin

July 13, 2010 at 6:01 pm 5 comments

Have you all heard of Jesse Freidin? Jesse Freidin is an award-winning pet photographer based in the Bay area who has a handsome Boston Terrier called Pancake, and shoots very stylish black and white doggie photos with a vintage camera. Website:

Jesse was in L.A. last month and we were thrilled to have our first professional photo session EVER!

Read Jesse Freidin’s blog post on our BOOGIE-PANCAKE barter.

The shoot took place in my apartment (er… I should have cleaned up some more) because we all agreed that this is where  Boogie feels the most confident and relaxed, with no external distractions.

Jesse and Diana (his assistant) were awesome. It was impressive how quickly they made Boogie feel comfortable and happy.  Boogie loved them and was surprisingly cheery and cooperative even when the camera was pointed at him. Remember, I have a dog who gets nervous around strangers … He doesn’t even usually like having his photo taken!

Firstly, here are a few pics from our session; some taken from Diana’s flickr set of behind-the-scenes photos.

Today Jesse sent me a gallery of Boogie photos. I am having a really hard time choosing JUST ONE favorite photo to be made into a print, because they are all so great!!! After consulting with Boogie’s extended family, here are our favorites of the bunch:

A classic Boogie SIT pose. When he is waiting for a treat.Everybody LOVES this one…


Another huge favorite. We love Boogie’s “sticky lip”.  Such a great photo!

A classic Boogie and ball pic… he looks so regal. I love it.

How can I possibly pick just ONE???

Boogie and I also had photos taken with Flat Brutus! This was quite surreal and extremely cool…

The Flat Brutus Project is a very special fundraiser for French Bulldog Rescue and you can read more about it on:

If you are located in L.A., don’t let this stop you from booking a session with Jesse Freidin. He travels around! 🙂
