One fine day

After a spell of really hot weather, it was nice to have a lovely fine late afternoon photo session. The avocado trees on the family farm were lushes and green and the fallen leaves made for some fun photos with the kids!

Official family portraits…of the pet kind!

When a new family member comes along and he looks as cute as Maverick, there’s no doubt that a new ‘family’ portrait needs to be taken.

Sometimes waiting can be so hard

I’ve wanted to share these photos of gorgeous Elsie for a month, and I can finally share them! This little beauty was a dream. When I met with her human mum to plan her photo session Elsie was happy to say hello for a while and then have a sleep while I talked with her…

The extras that make great photos

When I’m taking photos, whether it’s portraits of people or pets, I always look for the ‘behind the scenes’ images that show relationships and trust, and when people are their most comfortable and relaxed.
