Henry the Schnauzer – Sydney Dog Photos

I first met Henry's people at the Dog Lovers Show. They purchased my special offer but warned me that they wouldn't be booking in straight away because their Schnauzer, Henry, was still a naughty puppy who couldn't be off-lead. Their waiting paid off because fast...

Will & Grace – Sydney Oodle Photographer

You'd be forgiven for thinking I've narrowed my niche to only photographing oodles, but it's just a coincidence that a lot of my sessions recently have been with these types of dogs (and I've more coming up!). My most recent curly coated models were litter mates Will...
