RIP Taffy | Sydney Dog Photographer

Unfortunately the purpose of this session wasn't to get photos for Taffy's Arctic Breed Rescue adoption profile, they are photos to remember her by. When she was taken to the vet to have that massive tumour on her chest removed it was found that her internal organs...

Happy Easter from us and ours to you and yours! [Yes, Jackson is still waiting to find his perfect forever family. He's trained to wear bunny ears – I really don't know what else people could possibly want from a dog!]

Lou the Staffy | Sydney Dog Photographer

I was so excited when I got the booking to photograph Lou. A food and toy motivated rescue Staffy – how perfect! Drooling was only a slight problem. When we went outside I found some great places for him to sit that complimented his lovely shiny blue coat. He could...

Viking and Legend | Sydney Dog Photographer

Viking and Legend are two more Fetching Dogs rescues that are being fostered together. They came from the same pound, but they're not thought to be related. I guess they just breed 'em with big ears 'round those parts! And because some outtakes just have to be...

Gambit | Sydney Dog Photographer

I won't lie to you – I knew Fetching Dog's Gambit was 99% adopted when I took his "adoption photos". Generally with odds like that I'll cancel the shoot, but I had seen many photos of Gambit on Facebook over the last few weeks and I was itching to photograph him...
