Studio Portraits

Kym, Ella and Ben

Kym’s elegant, super-fast, extremely busy littles, Ella and Ben, are Itallian Greyhounds.  I had never heard of the breed until I started agility with our Siberians a few years ago, and to me they seem to be gentle, trainable dogs – though extremely sensitive to changes in temperature.  Kym won the gift voucher that we sponsored to raise money for the SA Agility Team to go to the 2016 Agility World Champs.  When she booked, she warned… Continue reading

Leon and Vanessa’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.  



Megan wanted some quick and simple portraits for internet use.  I suggested a studio package for flattering light and to allow for outfit changes.  Megan treated herself to some fabulous, natural make-up by Stylicious Divas.  She knew exactly what kind of images and poses she wanted so she was a pleasure to shoot.  Hope she loves them!  By Leanne Williams.
