Not only is she beautiful and friendly, she's also an agility Super Star!!

 

When we had our photo session earlier this year, I decided to try something a little different and get some behind the scenes footage while I was shooting.

If you've even wondered what happens on a Missy & Me photo session, then you'll like this one. Have a watch below.

CLIENT SESSION - CHARLIE http://www.missyandme.com.au/blog/2016/7/client-session---charlie When you hear 'Corgi' do you think of the queen? So did I, until I met Charles.

While still a regal name, this little Corgi is no royal snob. He is the most beautiful little short-legged cuddler I've met in a long time.

Now you may be surprised to hear that Charlie is not the biggest athlete in the world, so we chose to do our photo shoot session at a more urban location instead of a park. Charlie loves to get outside and have a stroll, but he's happy to take it slow and wander along the waters edge, not straying too far from Mum and Dad.

We did however manage to get him excited enough to have a little run! Much to his mothers surprise. And boy, did he run! He's actually quite mobile for a guy with tiny legs.

We finished off our session with some beautiful golden sun portraits... it was an absolutely PEREFCT Sydney day by the water.

If you would like a portrait session with your pet, please contact me today! I love to meet new people with their beautiful companions.

CLIENT SESSION: BARNEY http://www.missyandme.com.au/blog/2016/6/client-session-barney A couple of weeks ago I went to Melbourne for a little down time and to see my family. While I was there, I couldn't resist the opportunity to photography the newest furry family member of some of my oldest friends.

Barney, aka Mr Floofy Face, is just the most adorable mini schnauzer! At just 6 months old, he's super well behaved, has lovely manners, loves a cuddle and is adequately obsessed with chewing things in the garden.

We spent some time hanging out in his lovely, afternoon sun-filled backyard before going for a walk to the nearby Darebin Gardens. It was here that Barney made it abundantly clear that he likes to chase ducks and birds, but still has a healthy amount of caution when it comes to being near the water.

We explored the gardens for a while, and had a big run where Barney showed us his best crazy running face (well probably more cute that crazy) and he showed off his amazing ability to sit and stay for lengthy periods of time! Such a smart little puppy.

After about an hour and a half, Barney was pooped and the sun was getting low so we meandered back to his home where he continued to show off his cuteness and we had a cup of tea. I have no doubt at all that you will see more of this crazy little critter in the future, can't wait to see what he's like as a grown up!

CLIENT SESSION: PENNY AND ELVIS http://www.missyandme.com.au/blog/2016/3/client-session---penny-and-elvis The Bernese Mountain Dog breed is one that has been on my list to photograph for quite some time. Their soft flowing hair, their beautiful tri-colouring, and their gentle giant natures... a total dream!

Penny and Elvis' mum was given a gift certificate as a birthday present, and when she called me to book the session I was more than a little bit excited. Like I said, I've been wanting to photograph this breed for ages and these guys certainly did not disappoint!

We started the session under the shade of some pines, with lovely brown tones and the sun setting behind us, Penny and Elvis looked right at home. Penny was a pro with posing for the camera and, despite a little distracted earlier, when it came time for her close-up I had her full attention!

And Elvis - those eyes!!

Sydney this summer has been hot, and the day of our session was no different. But that didn't stop these guys giving us some beautiful action shots. We soon discovered that Elvis has a fabulous crazy running face.

We finished the session as the sun set through some long grass and both pups were totally pooped! These two were more than happy to have a lie down and give me some loving looks to finish off.

Penny and Elvis' parents have ordered a stunning Acrylic Facemount Story Frame with 3 shots from our session, a perfect addition to their home.

 

If you have a beautiful pet and would like a professional photo session to capture their love and beauty, get in touch today.

CLIENT SESSION: LOUIE http://www.missyandme.com.au/blog/2016/2/client-session-louie Louie has to be one of my all time favourite sessions, and it doesn't take much to see why... isn't he just the cutest!

But there's more to Louie's story than meets the eye.

Louie and his mum have been together for 13 years, and you can see just how strong the bond between these two is in these images. Last year, Louie's mum contacted me about a photo session to capture the love she had for her little boy, and to have something to remember him by as he was getting on in age.

Recently, Louie was diagnosed with cancer and when we had our session he had been in treatment for a few weeks. But despite how rough chemo can be on little bodies, Louie was an absolute angel and gave us his best until the very end of the session.

I have recently been in contact with Louie's mum, and went to see them to deliver their prints and although not cured, Louie's cancer has actually slowed in it's progression. I could have sworn he was a different dog... His energy has come back, and he looks like a puppy again!

I'm absolutely over-joyed to hear these two will have a bit more time together, to enjoy each others love.

 

If you have a special bond with your furry companion and would like to have a session, contact me anytime. It doesn't matter how young or old they are, photos and memories last a lifetime.

PERSONAL FAVOURITES http://www.missyandme.com.au/blog/2016/1/personal-favourites This Christmas Day was absolutely beautiful in Sydney, and we spent the day with family and some extra special furry friends, Frida and Willis.

Willis is the man of the house, who's bark is definitely bigger than his bite. He loves tennis balls, but is not as young as he used to be so tennis ball time has to be limited. That's not a problem though, as he will happily trade it for a cuddle.    

Frida is Willis' cousin, and is a rough-coated Griffon Bruxellois (Brussels) - or alternatively just plain cute. I'll admit, she takes her time deciding if she thinks you're friend of foe but with the help of a few little yummy treats I was her best friend in no time.


 

If you would like a photography session of you and your pets, please get in touch through the contact page, or book today at the session pricing page.

CLIENT SESSION: DICE http://www.missyandme.com.au/blog/2016/1/client-session-dice Well Happy 2016! What a great time to officially launch the new Missy & Me blog page.

I'd like to start by sharing a client session I had at the end of last year, with an extremely talented, good looking boy named Dice.

Dice is an agility expert and has the focus of a hawk! There's not much he can't do, and I was lucky enough to see a few of his finest tricks.

 

 

Given Dice is so athletic, it didn't take much to get him running and enjoying himself. He particularly likes chasing his "Squishy Ball"

After heaps of activity, we slowed it down and little to capture some nice portraits

It didn't take long though before Dice was ready to go again, and given he had been itching to get in the nearby water we thought it was time to let him loose for a swim

We finished the session with some shots of Dice with the amazing sunset. The weather really turned it on for us... just look at those colours!

If you love these shots and would like to book a session for your pet, visit the contact or session pricing pages
