Bazza’s owners were the winners of the mini session I donated to the Help the Hooler Family auction. They adopted him from Save Our Strays three months ago when he was three months old. Due to his rough start in life and the recent death of his buddy he’s very nervous of new people and was shaking when I arrived. Since it was only a one hour session I thought it was going to be a struggle, but it only took about ten minutes and a bunch of Happy Paws Training Treats to get him to trust me. Soon I had him working the camera like a pro!

The temperature was in the high 30s on Sunday. I was contemplating a dip in Bazza’s paddling pool myself!

Bazza will be starting obedience and agility soon. He’s such a little smartypants I reckon he’ll be a superstar at them both and any anxiety issues will be a thing of the past. He landed on his feet this one. Lucky boy.

Basil was referred to me by another photographer who no longer offers holiday sessions. It’s not really something I promote either, but I’ll do them occasionally if I have time in my schedule. When we met at Centennial Park I was quite taken aback by how gorgeous Basil is – and any dog that will smile while wearing festive props is ok by me!

And one without the props, just because.

It was Bruno‘s special day yesterday. It was 18 months since he joined our family and since we reckon he was about 6 months then, that made yesterday his 2nd birthday. Who cares if it’s real or not – he got to eat about ten home-made doggy biscuits while trying to get this shot, so I’m pretty sure he doesn’t care!

Vulcan’s owners won my prize in the Staffy Rescue mega fundraiser. Even though they live in Melbourne they wanted to make it work, so they drove all the way up to Sydney especially for the shoot. [Funnily enough, the last Staffy that I photographed, Betty, also belonged to raffle winners!]

Isn’t Vulcan just the cutest damn thing?

I think he looks a bit like Monkey from Monkey Magic in this one… humour me!

His smile is infectious.

Like any self-respecting Staffy, he was a big fan of the squeaky Cuz toy!

He needs a cape.

Although his superpower clearly isn’t catching the ball mid-flight!

Part of their prize was a custom-made collar from Ruthless Leather. They chose a wide Urban Cowboy, but we’re still waiting for the correct crystals to arrive before I can post a proper product shot. This is just a sneak peek!

After all that running around he was tuckered out and ready to sleep for the whole drive back to Melbourne.
