Spring is the perfect time to capture beautiful photos, and there’s no better place to do it than in San Diego's Balboa Park. With its stunning architecture, lush gardens and vibrant pink trumpet tree blossoms, it's no wonder this location is a favorite among photographers. But to make your spring photoshoot truly unforgettable, you need the perfect outfit, of course. Enter: our flowy boho matching skirt set with pockets. Our favorite spot in the entire park has blooming pink trumpet trees and cacti, as seen below, in the photo with our very photogenic dogs. We love how this dress silhouette and color contrast with the beautiful background. Read on for our top tips on how to capture stunning photos with your fur babies—and the outfits to wear while doing it.
Shooting with a dog isn’t easy, but have you tried a photoshoot with three dogs? Even the best doggy treats did not work, but we're still very proud of our furry friends and are happy with the results. When shooting with dogs, keep your photo shoots short. Much like kids, you can get their attention briefly with if the photographer holds a treat over the camera, but at the end of the day, they’re just being dogs and doing their best. It’s worth it though, because, let's be honest, having a dog in a picture makes it better.
We took the dogs for a walk starting at the Spanish Village at Balboa Park and continued to the walking paths at the Rose and Cactus gardens. Be careful of the cacti, keep your dog(s) on leash and don’t let them wander off too far. This area is full of beautiful but prickly cacti.
Our Izamal Two-Piece Dress in sky blue looks even great without the dogs.
What is that pink tree?
The pink trumpet tree, also known as Tabebuia rosea, is a flowering tree species native to Central and South America but it has been introduced and cultivated in many other parts of the world for its stunning display of pink trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom in clusters during the dry season. The tree can grow up to 30 meters tall and provides great photo ops and shade throughout Balboa Park. It's commonly used for ornamental purposes in landscaping due to its vibrant and eye-catching flowers, and we’re glad it made its way to San Diego.
