I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Lola and her person this year. I typically meet my clients no more than three times (session, purchasing appointment and artwork collection) but I’ve probably seen Lola about eight times already and we’re not even done yet! I think Dave and William have conspired to make me fall in love with the breed because Dave wants a Bull Terror (not a typo) and I don’t. It’s not that I dislike them, I just think they’re nuts and I don’t want that responsibility (if you’ve met Butters or Ninja you probably have a puzzled look on your face right about now, hahaha).

Lola had a Studio Session and a Location Session with off-camera lighting. The plan was always to get “the lot” and I’m really delighted with how everything turned out. If you watch the video to the end you can see the finished artworks – an acrylic Superia wall collection, a Boutique Box which contains 20 fine art prints (which you can rotate to display different ones in the window on the lid), two acrylic blocks, the full digital collection and some goodies. 

Not pictured is the Antinol I gave them before their artworks were ready (because Will mentioned Lola had some allergies) and the bespoke Ruffined Designs collar and lead I’m going to make this week.

William very kindly left this 5 star Google review afterwards:

Lola and I had an amazing time with Ruth and Dave, true professionals and great people, it’s not everyday that you find people are professional like that. Extremely happy with the final result and the overall experience, I would recommend to anyone and will be coming back in the future for more photos.
