Goodness I love my job. I’ve never had a pet portrait yet where I didn’t have a great time. Dog owners are always good sorts – that has a lot to do with it, and of course you’re unlikely to have a bad day when there are dogs around. Add a camera to the mix and I simply couldn’t be anywhere better.
Meet Tommy. He’s an elderly fellow, a little hard of hearing now, but still very much up to a swim in the ocean with his ball. Isn’t he adorable? It was difficult to tell whether he adored his dad Mark the most, or whether Mark adored him the most. They have the most amazing bond. Tommy is a Welsh Springer Spaniel. See below for the whole slideshow.
The same weekend I had a portrait session with three gorgeous creatures in Auckland’s Mission Bay: Rocko the pomeranian, Sapphire (a.k.a. Haggis) the West Highland Terrier, and Heidi the Golden Retriever. Super cute dogs and equally fabulous family who clearly love them all to bits. Here’s a slideshow of my favourite shots of all of the dogs from the weekend.
