Recently I was invited to photograph three beautiful dogs in their home. Max, Gucci & Ruby

I have to admit, it is the first time I have ever been greeted by any dog willing to share his very big bone with me!!

Max is a very handsome 6 year old Hungarian Vizsla. After he had posed for me with his bone he was happy to do some posing without it too :)

Next up was Gucci, a 7 year old Vizsla/Kelpie/Staffy mix, Gucci is such a sweet gentle girl..

How cool is the dog’s swing seat/bed! It really looked very comfy and relaxing.

Ruby who is only about 5 months old, had to be lifted up into the swing bed, and when she got tired of jumping around, she posed happily for me..

How super cute is Ruby!!! Ruby is a German Pinscher and totally cuddly!

Next we headed out into the backyard for some more photos, the dogs had great fun as you can see from Gucci’s smile as max gives her a kiss…

It was lovely to spend time with these three and their very devoted Mum, Emily.

Emily had 2013 calendars made up using images from our photo shoot, to use as gift for Family and friends in Europe, so next year Max, Gucci & Ruby will be international stars!

Recently I met up with Chrystelle Poodle ( a bit of a Central Coast celebrity) and her Family for a family photo-shoot.

Chrystelle’s Mum, Charmaine, is the owner and ‘head groomer’ at Gosford Grooming, Charmaine is just amazing not only with her grooming skills but with her passion for animals and especially dogs and their ‘rights’ here on the Central Coast.

OK, I am pretty sure I can here Chrystelle telling me to get back to the pictures 😉 so here she is in all her stunning Standard Poodle glory…

 

Now next up in Chrystelle’s family is her very handsome son Templer, who is a little bit of a clown, but he managed to put on his ‘serious’ face for some portraits…

And now onto the two seniors of the family, Bonnie and Colleda who are both 15 years old.

Bonnie is such a sweetie and although she often has the ‘confused elderly dog look’ she can hold her own with the rest of the Family :)

Our session had been postponed earlier in the month due to Colleda having been very ill and having to undergo major abdominal surgery, so it was such a joy to see her out in the park enjoying the sunshine and the company of her Family,

Thank you Charmaine for allowing me the chance to photograph your delightful canine Family.
