Pet Portrait Photography or Schnauzer

Every year I am one of the organisers of the Dogs Day Out in Mawson Lakes, it’s a fun and free community event in the suburb I live in, Mawson Lakes. We have heaps of doggy related stalls, displays, performances, advice, dog adoption and competitions. For dog lovers it’s heaven!

Anyway I run the Most Photogenic Dog Competition. I set up my mobile studio and take pawtraits all day long. It’s amazing how good the dogs are, considering that there are hundreds of dogs there, lots of noise, all sorts of comings and goings and yet they are so good at having their photos taken. I just love dogs!

Last year Ava a gorgeous Schnauzer who didn’t have the customary Schnauzer haircut just  won us all over. She sat and gazed into my camera lens, and I swear she smiled! Her prize was a professional photo shoot in my studio, and when her human told me there were 2  more at home, I decided to extend the prize to them too. Lovely dogs, each with their own distinct personality (or is that doganilty?). Ave the quite reserved one, Rommel the gentleman and Sabrine the playful one. Lovely shoot to do!

5 Border Collies!

This was such a fun photo shoot to do. It was started off as a gift certificate that was bought as a Christmas present, one of the border collies is a bit of an old boy at 11 years old, and so it was to get some really lovely photos of him. But when I discovered that there were five of them and they all do agility training together, I thought how fabulous it would be to get a  portrait of all of them together!

So the wagon pulled up in front of my studio and was just a sea of wagging tails! I must admit at that moment I wondered if I had totally lost my mind!!! But what beautifully behaved dogs they are. A real credit to their humans who have spent a lot of time not just teaching them fun stuff  like the agility training, but perfect manners too.

We had a fabulous morning, my idea of heaven … photographing beautiful, happy dogs!

Gordy the Labradoodle

 I have to say this gorgeous looking fella, is the most beautifully behaved and well-trained dog I have ever met. Including my own dog who I thought was pretty good! Still a young dog at just over one year, he’s almost human; ask him to do something and he does, right away. Fantastic. And so handsome too! Absolute pleasure and 100% fun taking photos, I LOVE my job!

 

Zack

 It’s amazing that at only 2 weeks old, newborn boys already look different to newborn girls! Little Zack is gorgeous, chubby and looks like he’s almost ready to kick a football around. Despite it being a typical hot Adelaide summer day, he was very content in front of the heater, and we got through this photo shoot in no time at all!

 

Sienna

 10 day old Sienna arrived just in time for Christmas, I took these photos just 3 days before Xmas Day amid a flurry of wrapping paper, the smells of cake baking and a 2 1/2 year old big sister who was very worried that Santa might not make it to the house, despite her having a bag of “reindeer oats” (muesli!) ready for them! I’m sure Santa made it, but I reckon the best present was this little bundle of new life

Savannah

Just 20 days old, newborn baby Savannah came to my studio with her mum, Tayla-Lee and her auntie, Micaela. Such a pretty little thing (like her mum!), and we had a fun morning taking heaps of gorgeous photographs. Babies are only like this for such a short period of time, it’s great to be able to take portraits of them to remind you in years to come just how tiny and innocent they were!
