“Her name was Lola, she was a show dog. With pretty flowers in her hair and sunglasses to spare…”
When Ms. Caron called me up and said she had a bit of an unusual photo shoot for me, I had no idea what I was about to get myself into. She told me her dog, Lola Sunshine was an Instagram celebrity and after checking out her IG, there was no doubt she truly was a star.
On our first afternoon of shooting, I arrived at the Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach to find little Ms. Sunshine herself lounging by the pool in her pink sunglasses with a cosmo by her side. From that point on I knew this was going to be so much fun!
Decked out in her Heremes handbag and scarf we shopped the stores of Worth Ave.
Everywhere we went, people stopped to take pictures of Lola and talk to her owner. Lola made sure to give out her business card to her admirers.
Shopping and all the attention was exhausting and little Ms. Lola needed to relax again. So we headed to the beach. A trip to Palm Beach requires a stop at the famous Worth Ave. clock tower and some time with your paws up in the sand.
By the time we were done with the beach, Lola was ready for dinner. We stopped by the famous Ta-boo to meet up with some friends for a cocktail before heading back to the Brazilian Court for a candle lit dinner.
The next day, Lola met up with a new girlfriend of hers that she met while staying in the hotel.
After some girl time by the pool they decided to take some pretty pink Lilly Pulitzer bikes out to the streets. We all peddled around Palm Beach for a bit (yes we all did… I’ve done some crazy things for photo shoots but I never thought I’d be on a bike with a sun glass, dress wearing dog)
Lola desired to do more shopping so she hit up her favorite boutiques, Style Paris and Jennifer Miller for a new pair of shoes and earrings. Of course it wouldn’t be shopping in Palm Beach without a glass of champagne by her side.
I know I had a blast with Little Lola Sunshine and from the looks of things she sure did as well.
I’m super sad to see her leave Florida and head back to her home state of Illinois.
I sure hope next time she’s in town she looks me up!
