Project 52 – Motion (5/52) | Central Coast Pet Photographer

Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.

the theme for week 5, chosen by Alicia from Pennington NJ, USA, is “Motion” – the brief this week was nice and simple – “Let’s see some motion!  Implied or real, it’s up to you.”

This week I am featuring Milly…..

With this first series, I chose to freeze the Motion of Milly running…



And with the second series, I wanted to get a feel for just how fast Milly can move….



Milly is one dog I just love to see move.

The reason I chose to feature Milly on her own this week, was because you wont see her here for a while, Milly has gone back to the farm where she was born to live with her K9 Mother, Father and Sister so she can learn how to ‘work’ sheep, it is after all what she was bred to do and her Family have been working dogs for generations. Milly got an easy start in life being a pet, but I could see as she grew and matured that she really ‘needed’ to work. The updates from the farm are that she is having a ball and loving the space to run and play and is settling in very well.

Right, now, don’t forget to follow the links around the blog circle, starting with, Jayme, from ‘For The Love Pet Photography, in Portland Oregon’, until you get back here.


**Another update on Milly – she is now part of the team at Supreme Kelpie Stud and is learning to trial, hopefully she will be competing one day soon. I am so happy for her**


  1. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments, it really was hard to let her go, but I know she is happy and I know it was the best decision for Milly.
