The Blair Christmas Project

Do you love cute dogs? What about cute people? Enter the Blairs, Gisele and Steven. She’s a coder and he is in the Navy. They are a cutie couple living in the small town of Pacific Grove, California with their adorable Dachshund, Aldo.

Here are some fun facts about the location we shot their Christmas Card photo session in…

  1. It is known as the “crown jewel” of California’s state parks - there are 280 of them for reference. Thanks Wikipedia.

  2. It is located in Carmel, California right before the famous Big Sur coastline begins.

  3. This location is not dog or pet friendly. (Please don’t tell on us, we didn’t know until we got there!!)

  4. This location is only one of two places where the Monterey Cypress trees are native. The other place is the resort-town Pebble Beach.

Spoiler alert, this gorgeous couple lives right next door to me. Their dog Aldo and my cat Santa have a long-term turf war going on that’s quite humorous to observe. We are all still convinced that one day we’ll happen on the two of them snuggling somewhere when they think no one is watching.
