Hunter was the winner of a competition held by my local vet. People were asked to upload a photo of their pet onto the vets Facebook page and then the pet with the most “likes” won a photo shoot with me!

Well handsome boy Hunter won the competition and came for his photo shoot. He’s a German Shepherd x Collie with the looks of a German Shepherd and the mind of a Collie! He was sheep dog trained as a puppy and so he’s really good with commands and even ‘talks’ when asked to!

This photo shoot was done and dusted in no time at all, Hunter posed beautifully and was so good. Now his humans have the hard task of deciding which of his gorgeous photos to print!

I’m back from Africa!

Flew in last night from Botswana and the most amazing safari yet, full of amazing sightings, once in a lifetime experiences and as always good friends and lots of laughs.

Only 35o0 photos to go through! But back to work tomorrow so it might take me a while before I get a chance to do that, never mind I’m still in Africa inside my head!

Off to Africa!

I’ll be a bit quiet on this blog for the next few weeks as I’m off to Africa to take photos of big pussycats and wild dogs and hopefully lots of baby wild animals. Can’t wait!

This is my 5th trip to Africa, I’m a lucky girl, and I am always in awe of the wildlife there. The privilege of being amongst herds of wildebeest and zebras, to see a pack of lions lazing in the shade of tree, watch baby elephants being nudged along by their mums … it’s just amazing.

Each trip has had it’s special moments, one trip we were at a den when the litter of wild dog puppies  made their first appearance out of the den, we spent ages one year watching a baby elephant playing in the soft mud at the side of the river face planting himself just for the fun of it. Last year we visited a hyena den with lots of babies and hoped that the nearby prowling lions wouldn’t get to them.

I wonder what this year will have to offer ………………….

See you when I get back!

Wow, this newborn baby looks like she made a visit to the beauty salon to have her eyebrows and lashes touched up, but at only 16 days old it’s all perfectly natural and perfectly perfect! And she was such an easy baby to photograph too, no fussing no crying just little miss perfect!

My Mornings!

I’m dog sitting for 2 friends at the moment, so my doggy household is now 4 dogs. All the dogs know each other as we human friends all belong to the same running club and take our dogs for a run too so they all get along great.

This is the scene first thing in the morning while I’m making my morning coffee and they are very patiently waiting for their breakfast, I just love them!

Great Danes and Great Dane puppy

Oh my goodness, the bigger of the two Great Danes is only 5 1/2 months old, the small one is only a few weeks but one day she will be that big. And one day soon they will both be bigger altogether! Hopefully their humans have a big house!

Before and After

I love doing these before and after photos, every time someone books a pregnancy photo shoot I’m always hoping that they will be keen to do something like this. It takes a bit of planning and finding out what style is most appealing to the mum to be, and then having the patience in the middle of a newborn baby shoot to get it all together. But what a fantastic keepsake to remember the whole experience of that anticipation of a new baby followed by the intense love for a newborn baby.
