Pet Pawtraits

Great Danes, Great Love

Shannon McKay is the owner of McKaynine.  We met her many years ago when we wanted to spend more quality time with and have more control over our Siberian Huskies.  She and her team have been hugely helpful, and have made training really fun.  Shannon also breeds beautiful, goofy Grate Danes.  We did this Pawtrait Shoot at McKaynine Honeydew, Shannon’s home with two of her special girls.  Smooch and Joanie were the canine models.  They were so excited and… Continue reading

Sam’s Specials at Sunset

Sam Walpole, as in THE Sam Walpole from Be The Dog has been on my own doggy journey from the start.  I met her at my first ever agility class at McKaynine many years ago.  I’ve also had the privelage of a few behaviour consults with Sam to help sort out my own hooligan Siberians.  Sam wanted some photos of her pack for both professional and sentimental use.  I think Allegro is the funniest, cutest little Italian Greyhound EVER!  He… Continue reading

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

Susan’s Pack of Smiles

Susan is a Special.  She is an admirable and experienced dog handler who excels at Dancing With Dogs and Agility.  And that is how I met her – surprise surprise.  She has a beautiful pack of smiling Staffies: Robocop, Storm, Ziza and Scarlett, as well as a rescue, Lexi, affectionately nicknamed ‘Straatbrak’ and a young rising agility star Kelpie named Zara.  We went to their home on a lovely overcast evening to take some Fine Art… Continue reading

The Smits and a Soft Summer Sunset

 

 

Dorothea is a super bubbly lady we’ve met through dog agility.  She has a patient bipedal pack member named Jack, a crazy blond Lab named Jessie, an elderly Lab named Misha, and a naughty ginger kid named Stoffel who loves giving her a hard time in competition, but man he is CUTE!  The Smit family met us at Delta Park during an incredibly soft summer sunset for some pawtraits.  Misha wasn’t able to walk very… Continue reading
