Is there anything more magical than a dog and beautiful sunset?
I had the privilege of capturing the gorgeous Alfie at his stunning home.
Sunset (or sunrise) is the best time of day for a photoshoot, not only does it create the opportunity to capture this beautiful time of day but it is also when lighting is the softest, creating soft lines and no harsh, unflattering shadows.
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.
I had so much fun on this little cuties puppy session, during both photographing and editing.
I went for a newborn session look as a puppy photoshoot, lucky for me she was still young enough to be sleeping most of the day, making it super easy for me to move and fuss with her while I was taking her photos.
On to of everything she was just so adorable I couldn’t get enough of her and just wanted to spend the day photographing her.

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.
Here she is, Sheeba 10 week old puppy, Max’s little sister (Max, last week’s post) at her first Doggie shoot.
After she had a good sniff around my studio and wondering off every now and then, she sat just long enough between treats for me to take photos of her and after she had her fill she started to get sleepy (just like her brother) and I got some lovely photos of her getting comfy and eventually falling into a well deserved slumber.
This beautiful blue eyed girl is a true model, well as long as you have treats to bribe her with. She has been on several photoshoots, including having taken part in a winter wonderland kiddies clothing shoot for a UK clothing company.
10 Week old puppy Max’s first photoshoot. This handsome young husky’s photoshoot came just before christmas, I set up and decorated a christmas tree for him to pull down and he was well suited to the job, before I could even pick up my camera he was already pulling at the tree and I had just managed to take one photo and down came the tree.
He had an absolute blast and fell asleep half way through the shoot, thats when I manages to get a santa hat on him just long enough to get a few photos and then he was back at it. After a well deserved rest for Max we removed all the chewable props and he sat nicely for some puppy portrait shots.
Keep an eye out for his little sisters photoshoot coming next week.
