PUPPIES!!!! Super high energy, cheeky, floofy, cute Bearded Collies, proudly bred by preservation breeder, Eileen Ashton of Ashvale Bearded Collies. My camera and I got absolutely mobbed every time I lay down for a good low-angle shot. Totally worth it. The mom wouldn’t sit still for a photo at all, so clearly that is where the pups get their energy from. I captured some phenomenal action photos of her playing and jumping for toys and am now sorely tempted to train a Beardie for agility. Photography by Leanne Williams.
