Pet Pawtraits

Terina’s Trio

Terina has three Border Collies, Keiko, Novac and Arrow, who are WILD on the agility course.  So when she booked her Pawtrait Shoot, I immediately thought it was going to be HECTIC to get all three dogs to sit still for a family photo.  I was so wrong.  Without the agility equipment and hype of a dog show, the dogs were calm and as good as gold.  Beautiful ‘stays’!  And we rewarded them with a… Continue reading

Small and Annoying

My agility buddy, Bronwyn, contacted me to arrange a Lifestyle Pawtrait Shoot for ‘Small and Annoying’.  I was confused.  ‘Small’ is her nickname for her daughter (bipedial), Amy.  ‘Annoying’ is her nickname for her newest dog, Presto, an imported Pumi.  I believe she does actually mostly quite like him.  :-p  It was a very grey and rainy day, which suited me perfectly and gave us some lovely light, puddles and props to work with.… Continue reading

Blundell Trouble

One Siberian Husky is a handful.  Three plus a Malamute puppy is insanity.  Usually.  But Nubs and Bear surprised us.  They were super chilled and happy to maintain their brilliant sit stays and down stays while we played with the amazing sunset light.  Loki, the young black and white Sibe, was a little more spirited, but then, he is a teenager, and, well….his name is Loki!  Izzy the Malamute pup kept us entertained with… Continue reading
