Pet Pawtraits

Mayhem and Chaos

Meet Mayhem and Chaos, two spirited terriers, loved by William and Rebecca.  Williams’s mom treated Will and Becs to a gift voucher for some Lifestyle Pawtraits with their dogs.  We went to Delta Park late one afternoon, and let the dogs run around and play before coaxing them into sitting still for a minute for some portraits.  They were rewarded with a swim and another play before heading home, which also gave us some lovely action shots.… Continue reading

Judy and her Goldens

Judy is one of my friends from a canine yoga class I attend weekly with my Sibes.  She has a very special rescued Golden Retriever named Caleb who really enjoys the social side of the class.

Ansi, Kiki and Rival

Meet Ansi.  Owned by Kiki the golden retriever and Rival the horse.  Every photographer’s dream brief: ‘Please get some creative family pawtraits of me, my horse and my golden retriever together. But the dog is terrified of the horse. Oh, and the horse is in training to be bit-less, so there will be no bridle or any other physical way to control him.’  Plus, Ansi loves vivid colour, and the day we scheduled the shoot was dreary… Continue reading

Baby Blake and His Extended Family

Introducing the only puppy from the first litter of the brand new SellerSouth Kennel….Blake Dean!  Mom (all health checks clear) is recovering nicely and is super proud and protective.  Little Blake is already booked to a great Agility- and Flyball-Home.

But seriously…..I met new mom, Lindsay, at agility competitions and workshops a couple of years ago.  She’s loud.  If she’s angry, you know it.  If she thinks you did well at a round of agility,… Continue reading
