My Puppy – Archer


Hi all,

My partner and I recently  adopted a rescue puppy from the Sydney Dogs and Cats Home shelter. His name is Archer and he is between 4-6 months old American Staffy cross Boxer.

I’ve always been very passionate about animals, loved dogs and have been around dogs my whole life, but never owned one. So, finally 2 weeks ago after months of talking about it, me and my partner Steve decided to rescue a dog from a shelter. We were not necessarily looking for a puppy, but when we saw Archer (formally Geoffrey) in his cage, he stole our hearts. Never in a million years I would think my first ever dog will be a boxer cross, but here we are and I love him.

The first week of bringing him home with us, I must say I was totally overwhelmed, but he is learning quickly and we are now putting some powerful rules in place as well. He is still very cheeky and he loves to get us out of the bed by stealing our socks and shoes to get attention ?

When he plays and runs he reminds me of Bambi (the young deer from the Disney movie) because of his clumsiness and curiosity, discovering new things to eat and play with every day. The funniest thing is when he gets a new toy he never seen before, he starts hoping on his front legs like Bambi and if me or Steve aren’t in the room he runs to one of us to show us what he just got!

Well today was his first day at the beach, which was absolutely hilarious to watch. I don’t think I got the funniest shots of him as I was too busy laughing at his first experience with sand, but here are few photos anyway…..introducing Archer the Bambi dog.

Cheers, Sonia

Bernese Mountain Dog – Sydney Pet Photography


Hi guys, meet Ziggy a 2.5 years old Bernese Mountain Dog from the Northern beaches. I met Ziggy and her owners Grace & Declan at our city style photoshoot at Kirribilli over the weekend, which I personally was looking forward to very much. I was hoping to do a pet photography session over there for what feels like forever!

We almost had to re-schedule as the weather was not playing nice most of the morning. Well, finally the rain stopped and here we were across the water from Sydney’s two biggest icons.

As I was waiting for our doggy model I was looking for some spots to take a few photos, I saw a bride and groom having their photos taken in the same spot I was thinking of. I must say I giggled to myself and though if it’s good enough for a wedding it’s good enough for me :)

Photographing Ziggy was a lot of fun, I remember  having to make some really silly noises to get his attention even just for a second or two. I specially loved the way he was galloping across the grass to play fetch with his toy.

Please scroll down to view highlight images from our photoshoot with Ziggy.

Biscuit the fluffy puppy – Glebe Park Pet Photography


Hello to all pooch lovers around the world! Meet Biscuit, a cheeky, fluffy Cavoodle puppy from the lower North Shore in Sydney. I met Biscuit and her owner Linda on our recent photoshoot at Glebe park, during the weekend. It was challenging photoshoot with so many dogs and people pretty much everywhere. However we managed to find a quieter area where we could play with Biscuit and let her run freely (with the occasional running off to say hello to others of course :).
Biscuit enjoyed herself to the fullest, she loved playing and meeting other pooches and people.

From Linda: Biscuit is a very cheeky cavoodle and absolutely loves meeting people and other dogs. Her favourite past time is rifling through the laundry basket for socks – dirty or clean, she is not fussy.

The Cheeky Samoyed – Sydney Urban Pet Photography


Hi guys, this is Aurora a 3 year old cheeky Samoyed from Inner West Sydney. Aurora found her new family recently this year with Jasna and Stacey after their previous Samoyed sadly passed away. Aurora has a beautiful, gentle soul, she likes long walks and like most of us, doesn’t mind a treat! She was happy to walk and explore some new streets with us and did not mind to pose for a shot or two. When I was reviewing the images from the session I discovered that she was treating us with a lot of cheeky, happy looks through out during the photo shoot. These are so easy to miss sometimes without the camera to capture them.

Puppy Fun With Kovu – Forest Pet Photography


Hello everyone, meet Kovu an adorable 4 month old, Husky cross Collie puppy! I met Kovu and his lovely owner Kristen recently for a photoshoot near Coalcliff on the South Coast. Our original plan was to head down to the beach for some nice running shots as well, but this little furry bundle of joy ran out of energy after chasing his horsie friends in the paddock earlier that afternoon, hehe:).  We finished our photoshoot on a meadow bank in a grassy patch up on a hill where Kovu played around in a long grass and was loving it! I was so happy to meet Kovu’s amazing little brave heart, his beautiful face and soulful eyes. Thank you Kristen and Kovu!

Please if you like my photos, like my Facebook page or leave a comment below, thank you guys :)

White Dogs Can Jump – Harley The Staffy Cross


Hi guys,

This is Harley, a staffy cross originally from Canberra, but currently based in the Sutherland Shire in South Sydney.
So far I have had a great experience photographing staffies, they are playful and keen to chase a ball or a stick. Their body is athletic, muscular and they strike some beautiful strong poses. You must be wondering why the funny headline? Harley is a jumper, but even Ben the owner did not know he would jump over a meter tall fence without any fear or hesitation. That came as a bit of a surprise! If you scroll down the page, you will see Harley in full action!
