Sao The Labrador Retriever – Sydney Pet Photographer

Hello!

I am happy to introduce Miss Sao a 13 year old yellow Labby, from the Eastern Suburbs. Her name is Sao just like Arnotts SAO savoury biscuits, hehe.

Last Christmas Allison and her gorgeous old girl Sao received a voucher for a mini session together. On the day of our session, the light was awesome, the colours were lovely, the weather was perfect and best of all a vibrant and natural foliage.

Sao is a little deaf, but was happy to pose for a treat or two 🙂 Her favourite things include sniffing, food, attention, lots and lots of rubs around her ears, chin and face. Oh and did I mention food? 🙂 She is a typical “labby” loves people, food and attention 🙂

Ritzy & VoVo – Sydney Pet Photographer

Hello!

Meet the adorable girls Ritzy & VoVo, who are of course adorably named just like the biscuits (Ritz & VoVo’s)! 😀 They are both living the dream life with their person Dianne in the Eastern suburbs near a beautiful golf club, where they enjoy it’s surrounds on their everyday walks and outings :).

Ritzy the Lhasa Apso is 13 years young, she is a little deaf and perhaps a little blind, so you may say she is care-free? *wink, wink*. Despite that, she loves lots of attention and cuddles. Her slightly younger sister VoVo is a 7 year old Bichon Frise cross Spaniel, she is very excitable and energetic and loves attention lots and lots of it. They are both very sociable, love people and other puppies, and are always first to say Hello in the traditional “woof” talk :).

Printing: Old Fashioned? Or Smart?

Hi everyone,

I often talk to my clients about printing their photographs and the benefits of doing so.
Today I would like to break this topic down and why it is a good idea.

I would like to encourage everyone to print their photos and I mean any photos, from your phone, instagram, cameras etc.
Don’t get me wrong I spent a lot of my time looking at screens and I like to go digital as much as the next person. But lets not forget about the humble print.

How many times do we really look at and enjoy the photos we’ve taken? In todays digital age where everyone has a cellphone with a camera, it’s becoming the norm to store our entire lives digitally, including our memories!

Kimba, Dakota, Ollie & Gamble – Sydney Pet Photographer

Hi everyone,

I had the pleasure photographing 4 beautiful huskies from the Inner West of Sydney recently.
Kimba, Dakota, Ollie & Gamble are all rescues and are truly a one of a kind pack living very happy lives with their people Stefanie & Brenton.

Stefanie and I have known each other for quite sometime as she was a foster carer to a couple of dogs I photographed for Arctic Breed Rescue. One of the dogs ( Miss Gamble, aka flops (as you scroll down you will quickly realise which one she is!)) came to Stefanie as a foster but only lasted a week before Stef decided to adopt her herself.

Stefanie picked a really cool location for her session and knew exactly what she wanted, which made it easy for me! 🙂

I’d also like to mention she is the Sydney director of  Pawsome Pet Services based in the Inner West. Stefanie loves her job and is incredible with animals! You can check them out on instagram as well @pawsomepetservicesau

Mika & Lucky – Illawarra Pet Photography

Hi guys,

I had the pleasure meeting 11 month old Mika and 3 month old Lucky down the South Coast recently. When I asked in my questionnaire about Lucky’s & Mika’s temperaments and energy levels, Lucky was described as having “crazy amount of energy”. My initial thought was, “can’t be too bad, he is only 3months right?”. Well obviously I had not met Lucky at that point, he had a mission which seemed to be “under no circumstances stop moving” 🙂 Mission accomplished.

Celebrating Benny – Sutherland Shire Pet Photographer

Hello!

I recently had the pleasure to meet Benny, the adorable little Cavalier cross Spaniel from the Sutherland Shire. Benny is a typical puppy, enjoying the life of mischief and adventures with his human parents. When Shane first contacted me wanting to book a session as a present for him mum and told me about Benny, I was already getting excited. But when he sent me a photo of Benny to show me who I’ll be working with, my eyes sparkled at the adorably cute creature.

On the day, of course we had to start with Benny’s favourite game…..running his little heart out and chasing his toys. With Erica and Shane keeping Benny entertained it was safe for him to be off-lead and he never wandered too far away. Later, when shooting some portraits, benny would let me know with his puppy bark to hurry up and stop dangling those treats in front of him for too long  🙂

Adopt Me – Dog Rescue Photographer Sydney

Hi guys,

I have been finding myself doing more rescue photography. I didn’t think I could cope very well with the emotions and to be honest was a little hesitant, but I am strong believer a good photo can go a long way a specially for a dog that has been overlooked for some time. And good photography is essential for all shelters.  The first couple of times I visited, there were a few tears and few ideas of adopting them all, but realistically I wanted to make sure I got some awesome photos full of character and love to give them the best chance of getting noticed and adopted.

Missy & Jojo – Dog Photographer Sydney

I had the pleasure meeting 2 Alaskan Malamutes Missy & Jojo recently for a relaxed session in the park. Their mum Robyn was lucky enough to receive this photography session as a gift from a friend! When I spoke to Robyn, she said it was something her and Ray wanted to do for a long time, but needed that extra nudge to finally make it possible! 🙂

Both girls are 11 years old and suffer from arthritis and hip dysplasia, so we took it slow and didn’t do a whole lot of walking, but they enjoyed themselves, sniffing around and getting lot of attention and TREATS! 🙂
