Bosco the boxer dog

I have to admit that I have a bit of a weakness for dogs with wrinkles! Boxers, pugs, bull mastiffs and Shar Pei’s … anytime I hear that’s the type of dog that a client is bringing I can’t wait to meet them and see those oh-so-expressive faces.

Bosco was no exception, plus he loved squeaky toys, so one squeak and the eyebrows went up and all the forehead wrinkles deepened, love it!

Chinese families

Although I’m not Chinese myself, I have photographed so many babies from families of Chinese descent that I now have quite an understanding of the culture and traditions that surround the birth of a new baby into the family, even when it is a young Chinese couple living in Australia.

As a result I now offer a Chinese Package to facilitate the desire to have newborn photos but the difficulties of how to do that with the 30 day confinement period. For Chinese families I do a pregnancy photo shoot at my studio around the 34 week mark, then when the new baby is born I do a newborn photo shoot at their home in the first 2 weeks, and then another studio photo shoot on the 100th day. I love doing it as I get to have quite a relationship with the parents, and invariably they come back at 8 months and at 1 year so I get to see the baby grow up too.

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!

Nova, Great Dane puppy

Hard to imagine that this little bundle of wrinkles, cuteness and velvet fur will one day be big enough to need a single size human bed to sleep on! But that’s Great Danes for you, her humans are totally enjoying this cuddly, lapdog size … because it won’t last long!

Sergeant Major, Great Dane

Adelaide Pet PhotosI first photographed Sergeant Major (known as Sarge to his friends) when he was just 3 months old. He was the most delightful puppy, already partially clicker trained and just all paws and ears and fur like velvet. His human decided that being a Great Dane he was going to grow at a tremendous rate and we would do a timeline of photos to show how much he grew in his first year.

Well, let me tell you, Great Danes grow very fast! He came back today aged 5 1/2 months, so only 10 weeks later and I hardly recognised him! And he still has lots more growing to do!

My how you’ve grown!

Adelaide Baby PhotosI first photographed this little guy when he was still a baby bump and not even born! Then I did newborn photos of him when he was about 9 days old, and now he’s back this time 8 months old and very pleased with himself that he can sit up unaided.Adelaide Baby Photos

 

 

It’s always a pleasure when my clients come back and I get to photograph the growth stages of their babies, I love to see how they’ve grown and changed over the year, and they are such lovely milestones to capture and treasure the pictures forever.

 

 

I can’t wait for his first birthday when we can add the last photo to this timeline picture.

Hermoine. Baby Photos,

I don’t usually go to people’s homes to do portrait photography but this time I made an exception as I had planned to go up into the Adelaide Hills on a hunt for some more newborn props for photo shoots and thought I’d combine the two.

I had a lovely morning with this gorgeous family. First of all their home is so fabulous I wanted to move in, then the parents were just the loveliest relaxed people, and don’t talk about Hermoine who was one of the most contented babies I’ve ever met! She made my job easy! And then the fur babies came to see what was going on, as far as I’m concerned this photograph of the parents, newborn baby and a dog is just the perfect family photo!
