GSPs’ Humans Are Getting Married

Amy and John are engaged to be married in about a year and needed some pretty pictures to use for their Save The Dates.  They booked a Lifestyle Pawtrait session during a lovely winter sunset in Kyalami, and of course they included their four spirited, beautiful German Shorthaired Pointers.  The dogs ran, and swam, and chased birds, and occasionally the couple managed to convince them to stay still for some portraits.  Don’t know who was more exhausted,… Continue reading

Pawtraits of George and Fabian


Supremely handsome George and Fabian came to the studio to show off their posing skills.  They’re both in amazing condition and very fit thanks to their mom, Chanelle, and PetFit.  They’re also qualified, working therapy dogs with Paws for People.  By Leanne Williams.

Leon and Vanessa’s Pawtraits

Leon and Vanessa won the gift voucher that we sponsored to help raise funds for a school.  They brought their 4 furkids, Emily, Anja, Kenobi and Qarma into our Sharonlea studio.  They’re such good, well-trained dogs, so we could put them in sit-stays and down-stays to pose for their individual portraits.  Since it was waaaaay too much to ask all 4 dogs to sit still and pose all at the same time, the group photo is a… Continue reading

The Mes Family’s Pawtraits


Candice and JJ, proud parents of Shnauzers Pippin and Frodo, are celebrating their 7 year anniversary and booked a studio pawtrait shoot to commemorate the occasion.  Candice and the two fur kids were treated to a morning of professional preening for the shoot, and everyone wore shades of blue.  The dogs had fun playing with the resident laboradors of our studio, but Frodo did NOT enjoy the Christmas outfits.  Photography by Leanne Williams.
