I’ve followed Bailey on Instagram since she was a baby, so I was thrilled to meet her owner at the Sydney Dog Lovers Show in August. I was even more thrilled when she decided to buy my show special, which included a Portrait Session along with a bunch of other goodies. I threw in inclusion in my #SquishyFaceCrew book since they’d missed the cut-off and due to a cancellation I had room for one more.
We started at their home as the first location. Bailey was in cracking form and had a lot to say for herself!
Once I was done shooting indoors we headed to a nearby park. Bailey was still very much a puppy so I was really impressed at how obedient she was. Balancing on a log is no easy task but she nailed this shot.
My sessions are equal parts posing and play, so next up was a game of fetch and general running around the park seeing what things she could get away with putting in her mouth!
Her people chose that first shot for a large canvas. How happy does she look?
Being just a puppy, Bailey got tired quickly. On the way back to the cars I saw this pretty bush with pink and white flowers that I thought she’d look great underneath. Thankfully she granted me one final lot of photos before letting me know she was definitely done now!
At their viewing her owners selected a collection that includes wall art, an album and digital files. I’ll post a digital flip through of the album on Instagram in the new year. You can follow me here if you’d like to check it out.
As I mentioned at the start of the post, Bailey is one of 70 squishy faces that are featured in my coffee table fundraiser book, #SquishyFaceCrew. This beautiful, full colour, visual feast can be purchased from my shop by clicking the button below.
