As a long time insta-stalker of these gorgeous squishy faced boys I might have done a little happy dance in my chair when their owner booked a session! I couldn’t wait to finally meet them. Eventually mother nature cut me a break and let me schedule their shoot. We almost had a false start when we found that fox bait had just been laid at our location but thanks to Tails of Sydney I now know lots of places to shoot at, so off we went to an alternative spot nearby. Rex and Hercule were full of beans so I started by burning off some excess energy!

Rex was up first. A tennis ball is his preferred toy.

Herc’s ball was kind of large. He looked like such a clown, I don’t know how he didn’t run into trees, it’s twice the size of his head!

There isn’t much age difference between the boys and they’re the best of friends.

Rex is a Pug x Bulldog. Sometimes his ears sit properly but mostly he has the flying nun thing going on.

Herc is a Frenchie x Bulldog. I was told that he can be camera shy but his love of food helped me to get the job done.

You know what I’m going to say about this photo … TEEEEF!

Before the sun set we made our way down to the water’s edge to do some shooting with the bridge in the background. Their owner used to live in an apartment that looks over that bay so it was quite fitting that we ended up there.

The series at the end were chosen for a quatro wall collection, which is currently in my studio waiting to be joined by a 12×12″ custom designed album. I just shared a digital page-turn of the album on my Instagram if you want to check it out.

Do you own a dog with a squishy face? I suggest you don’t stray too far from my mailing list, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google+, I have some news that might interest you …
