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. At only a few months old, this little fella flops, jumps, runs, falls, yaps rather than barks, and spends a lot of his time laying upside down! His marble-coloured…

Blossom + Mum and Me session

When life gets away from you and the busy-ness of day-to-day activities just keep on going, it’s a blessing to be able to slow down for a while and enjoy some precious moments together. Children change, they mature, they grow, and it can be hard to remember what they were like a few years ago…

What a cutie-pie

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing a friend’s puppy.¬†As expected, Maple was full of energy, flopping around the back yard and only sitting still for a moment at a time. As you can imagine, as soon as I walked away from her, or got anywhere near the ground, she was running after me…

They have the funniest faces when their ears are flopped down, their face is all droopy, and any loose skin is being pulled by gravity, but when they’re on the up part of…

Have I ever…

Have I ever mentioned how much I love photographing dogs? Yes! Well, I’m going to mention it again….I love photographing dogs!! Big ones, small ones, cooperative ones, not-so-cooperative ones, fast ones, slow ones……I’m sure you get the idea! It’s incredible that each one has their own distinct personality. How they can be content and just…

When your sibling just won’t leave you alone…

There once was a little brown puppy, sleeping soundly on the grass after using up all his energy playing. Along came another puppy, a black puppy, who was ready to play. “Come on” said black puppy, “It’s time to play!”. But the brown puppy just hadn’t had enough rest yet. He kept his eyes closed…
