Northern – Southern Highlands Pet Photographer

Northern – Southern Highlands Pet Photographer

Northern in the Southern Highlands:

I’ve had a lengthy hiatus from shooting due to a major relocation from Dural in the Hills District of Sydney down to the beautiful South Coast of NSW. It was a huge move for us, but one that was very overdue, and we are loving every second of being on the coast. Being on the beautiful South Coast  is a huge inspiration for me, and is proving to provide some much needed motivation.

I am also so very pleased to reconnect with old friends who have also moved away from Sydney. Recently, I had the opportunity to have an amazing photo session with Kellie from Totally Pawsable Dog Training, and her new Golden Retriever puppy, Northern. Well, what an absolute joy Nothern was. Every golden wiggly inch of her 🙂

Check out a selection of photos from her session below…

 

 

If you are interested in capturing your puppy in all their awesome goofiness before they grow up, please get in contact with me, I now do sessions around Wollongong, the Illawarra, Southern Highlands, South Coast of NSW, and more…

Mini Session Goodness with Little Kenny

Mini Session Goodness with Little Kenny

Sometimes you meet a new dog at a new location and it takes a little time for everyone to relax and get comfortable with their surroundings.

Meet KENNY!!

He is a beautiful little Tibetan Spaniel who was a little nervous about this new location to start with. I took some time just chilling out with him on the grass, getting him used to me, and the camera gear. I always like to observe my subjects for a little while, and never force them straight into a “sit” on this, or “stand” over here.

A lot of folks worry that they don’t have “obedience” trained dogs, and that they would never sit still long enough for a good photo. Guess what? Young Kenny here is the perfect example of an untrained dog coming away with gorgeous images that capture his personality – cheeky, happy, alert and playful! What a little spunk!

#WDPets Campaign

I was recently commissioned, along with some of Australia’s most talented photographers, to be part of a campaign to raise awareness for pet adoption and rescue groups.

Working with Western Digital and Rescue Groups throughout Australia, myself and the other commissioned photographers aim to shine a light on all the wonderful animals that are currently waiting for their new and forever homes.

By sending professional photographers into the shelters, each armed with a donated Western Digital My Passport Wireless Pro, we were able to capture gorgeous and happy photographs of these animals, which will greatly improve their chances of adoption.

This campaign is gaining traction on social media, with folks sharing images using the hashtag #WDPets.
Even photographic magazines and online forums are picking it up and running articles. This is FANTASTIC, as it will raise much needed awareness.

Myself and my partner have adopted 4 rescue animals so far (2 dogs and 2 cats), so we certainly understand the immense joy that comes from adopting rescues. Truth be told, I had to stop myself from attempting to smuggle out a couple of these cuties during our session.

Please check out these gorgeous guys, and contact the Animal Welfare League Ingleside for more details.

Here are some of the animals that were available for adoption during the #WDPets campaign…

The Outrageous Adorableness of BAILEY the Pomsky

The Outrageous Adorableness of BAILEY the Pomsky

It’s not often I can say that I fall in love on first sight, well actually, it has happened several times in fact; when I met my partner (aaawwwwww!!), when I laid eyes on our first rescue dog Bella, when we met our second rescue dog Oscar, when Pud our cat wandered into our yard and never left (don’t worry, we did try to find her owners), and then lastly when we found our latest rescue cat Chili, as a teeny tiny little kitty at the pound.

Well, it has happened again in my most recent shoot. I won’t lie, I wanted to bundle this little puppy up and sneak him out with me in my camera bag. You’ll understand when you see the images, trust me!!

You may ask “What on earth is a POMSKY?, well my friends, a Pomsky is an absolutely adorable mix of Pomeranian and Husky… WOW is what I first thought, and then I tried NOT to imagine the logistics of that mating 🙂  But upon meeting little Bailey the minute I got in the door, he was the sweetest, most adorable little puppy I’ve ever photographed (sorry Oscar)!

We had an on-location shoot at the apartment where Bailey and his humans live, which was just divine.

Check out Bailey in all of his outrageous adorableness below. Sometimes he channels his inner Pomeranian, sometimes his Huskiness shines through and at other times I’m sure I was photographing a little fox.

 

Until next time, enjoy your pets and snuggle them often!

Summer Pet Photo shoot with 2 gorgeous rescues

Summer Pet Photo shoot with 2 gorgeous rescues

My first Pet Photography shoot of SUMMER!!

I absolutely loved meeting these guys!
Maggie is a little pocket rocket, being a Foxie cross she was just go-go-go the whole session, while Monty, who is an older Westie cross, was much more mellow and laid back. They make such a wonderful family, as you’ll see from the selection sneak peek photos here.

I always watch the animals that I’m shooting, and get to know them during our session, so that I can showcase different sides of their personalities, whether that be boisterous, fun, nutty, smoochy, wise, mellow or just plain old cheeky!

Each and every session is so much fun… just take a look at these images!

SPRING special…

SPRING special…

So, for the very first time ever, I’ve decided to offer a SPECIAL.
The reason is quite simply the fact that I am enjoying the start of SPRING so much and would love to celebrate SPRING with you and your amazing pets!

You can check out the offer over on my specials page, but briefly, it’s a $50 discount off the ULTIMATE session fee, PLUS a $50 credit towards your product package. Isn’t that AWESOME?

So if you’ve ever been thinking about capturing your precious pets for a lifetime of memories, now is the perfect opportunity. Contact me now to book your session.

Just prior to the start of SPRING, I had a wonderful photo session with two adorable dogs; Melinda, a 2-year-old Cavoodle and Trevor, a 12-year-old Dachshund.
Trevor being a Dachshund, he was a little uncertain of me, to begin with, and dachies being dachies, he barked for about 80% of the session. But, as you can see from the end result, dogs who are incredibly talkative, or even who aren’t obedience trained (a common worry for a lot of folks), are still able to have a photo session. These images are just adorable, and capture the personalities of each of the dogs…
