Halloween – Pet Session

Heres a little something from last year Halloween, the ever beautiful Storm as a pumpkin for halloween. She loved her costume, it kept her nice and worm on this frosty morning and she got tones of attention from all the trick or treaters.

Are you a Halloween lover? Got any plans for this year? Looking forward to next Halloween already 🙂 !

Pet Session – Kate & Storm

As an animal lover I fell head over heals involve with Storm, she is such a well behaved little girl and her pet session was one of the easies photoshoots I have ever done.

Storm and Kate are such a well suited pair, the love they share for each other is beyond words and you can see their connection in every look they share and each command Storm obeys.

I couldn’t have asked for a better photoshoot to start of with after moving to the United Kingdom. I could spend all day every day photographing owners and their pets, each one shares such a special connection beyond words. I truly believe animals have the purest of souls and this is shown in their unconditional love for us.

TDSI Shoot

And finally The Doggie Support Initiative winners photos are here. Gail and her furkid Kiara won the TDSI photoshoot raffle draw, to support dogs in need.

It was just before christmas so we added a bit of christmas props. Kiara just loves running and she is so fast so I took a lot of photos just to get one of her running and it turned out great it actually looks like she is flying, just one of my favourite photos. Just a friendly lovely girl and loved photographing her.

Cango Wildlife Ranch – My Review

So this is my first official review. The Cango Wildlife Ranch in Oudtshoorn, South Africa.

If you love animals, this is the place to visit. They have a large variety of African animals and friendly guides, that take you on a guided tour trough some of the specialities of the ranch, when you first arrive. The guides joke around with the visitors and are open to any questions about the ranch or its animals, very friendly.

One of the tour guide talking about the cheetah’s.

With the rare white tiger, not actually an albino, simply a genetic code, as well as tigers, lions, cheetah and many other large wild cats.

During the tour and all along the walkways you come across interesting facts about the animals and where they came from, as well as their history.

There are also some amazing encounters you can do and have your photo with some of these amazing animals. Here we have some brave souls going crock cage diving, in stunningly clear water, with these large ancient’s.

I like to move it, move it! Lemur encounters (feeding). How about having Lemurs jumping around and on you, will hand feeding them and having your photo taken as a keepsake.
