Studio Portraits

Nadia’s Soulmate is a Dog

Meet Nadia, owned by Draco, the 8 month-young Labrador.  This was his first shoot – he made Nadia work very hard for some ‘stays’, but they both did so well.  Read Nadia’s t-shirt for the rest of their story – ‘99% sure my soulmate is a dog’.   By Leanne Williams.

Renee’s Pack

Renee is one of the best dog handlers I’ve met.  She instructs at Canine Performance Centre in Midrand, and competed at the 2018 Agility World Champs.  She booked a studio shoot with her dogs, Savvy, Stardust and Sayde to show off some of their prizes and sponsors. By Leanne Williams.

Melissa’s Pack

Melissa’s pack of Border Collies includes spirited Esca, goofy Kadin, and old man Shay.  Melissa’s dad and niece joined the shoot to help with the dogs.  You know it’s serious stuff when Melissa almost wears shoes for the first 5 minutes of the shoot!  By Leanne Williams.

Pawtraits of the Knox Family

Meet Cindy and Billy Knox.  Owned by Phoebe the Laborador, Cloe the Pug, Loki the Foxy cross Minpin, and Griffons Chewbaka, Flash and Raiden.  Chaotic cuteness.  I love the Griffons’ beards, though they gave me quite a challenge because they kept covering the dog’s eyes.  Cloe was by far the most photogenic little poser!    By Leanne Williams

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.

The Margo Family

Darren arranged a fun studio shoot for his extended family, including his 2-year-old son Adrian.  I’m not sure who was more excited, Darren or Adrian!  Both were running around like crazy, giggling hysterically and making chicken-clucking noises.  By Leanne Williams.
