Bruno and Cocoa’s last date

Long time followers will recognise Cocoa as Bruno's long time BFF. Her person moved to Perth in 2017 and obviously brought Cocoa with her. I borrowed her the week before so these besties could have a final date. At the time I was frustrated that the photos didn't turn...

Dog Birthdays season – Sydney Dog Photography

The naughty brindle dog ... the stripy one ... Baby Chopper ... the whingey one ... old man ChopChop ... the licky one ... Chopski ... it was rare that he was ever called his actual name. Maybe because I didn’t know who Chopper was when I decided that I didn’t want to...

52 weeks of Peanut Butter is finished!

I had planned some summery shots with sunshine and blue sky in December but the Australian Bushfire Crisis happened. Although we live on the coast, and are some distance from any fires, we were still affected by smoke and haze. I created this first image in my studio...
