Macey, Bruno & Alfie – Sydney Pet Photography

Macey,Bruno,Alfie

Hi guys, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Macey, Bruno & Alfie. These 2 adorable puppy Chihuahuas and a Boston Terrier Macey are Sydney siders from the south-west. When I met them, they were very happy to say hello to this new person (me) joining their pack for a couple of hours.

We started the session with some running and exploring the park. After about 30 minutes they started to be little more tired from all the fun. Macey (the boston terrier) was quite the runner and after she wondered off a bit further than we would liked her to it was time to put them all on a lead and head around the corner for some portrait styled shots.

sonia-m-pet-photography-1

Hi everyone!

I am very excited to let you know I am now donating my time & photography to the Arctic Breed Rescue. ABR is dedicated to the successful rescue, rehabilitation and forever rehoming of arctic breeds, and their crosses.  Their base of operations is in Sydney, NSW however they do rehome to all states within Australia.

When ABR approached me, I was very happy to help out to with their photography needs, I am a strong believer a good photo can go a long way. Some rescues underestimate the importance of good photography, so I was very pleasantly surprised to see ABR’s great profiles and photos of their dogs.

Here are some photos from my first 2 shoots for ABR.

Pet Photography – FAQ’s

product-feautre image

Where are you located and where will my photo session take place? 

I am a Sutherland Shire based on-location pet photographer. The photo session itself will take place at a park, beach, forest or urban area.  If I am familiar with your area, I will recommend a location that will work well with your dog’s temperament as well as the style you are looking for. I can also come to you, if you have a special place you take your dog for a walk that is meaningful to you in some way.

Hi guys, since I had my dog Archer I got to know Angela quite well. We often see each other at our local park walking the dogs. As I got to know her I found that she helps rescue dogs who have been in pounds for a while or are due to be euthanised.
She was kind enough to let me do this interview and take a few photos of her with her 3 puppies so I could share it all with you.
