19 year old three-legged and one-eyed Tia was booked in for a session before COVID hit. I was so worried that time wasn’t on our side but her person kept assuring me that Tia wasn’t going anywhere any time soon and not to stress. I admired her positivity but it didn’t make me any less concerned!

We finally managed to tee up a date and Ange hadn’t lied to me – this dog was still very much full of beans! She fetched, she swam, she tugged and for two hours she worked my camera like a champion.


After the beach we moved to a second location to do some photos with the off-camera lighting. There was no stopping this girl!


When they came for their purchasing appointment we did a few photos in the studio, which she once again nailed.

Tia was already the ripe age of 13 when Ange adopted her. Little did she know they’d have so many years together. They’re both very lucky to have found each other.
