Client Session ~ Chloe, Kobi and Lacey
Although we’d originally arranged to hold the photo shoot in a park on the Gold Coast, after Clarissa saw the session with Angus and Rocky, she decided that was exactly the kind of look she wanted for her photos as well.
Clarissa and her partner have three dogs. Chloe the Maltese Terrier, at nearly 8 years old, has been with her for the longest.
Chloe loves giving kisses to her mum!
Kobi and Lacey are both Bull Mastiff / Ridgeback crosses, just a month apart. Despite their similar heritage (they aren’t related), they are rather different looking but both very stunning dogs.
Kobi is 8 months old and was first to join the family out of the two.
This location and pose reminds me of a saying that I really love.
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring – it was peace.” – Milan Kundera
After hanging out on the hillside for a while, we decided to head down to the big cow paddock. The pups had a fantastic time racing around chasing each other in the long grass.
There was still time for pats from dad though.
Last in the limelight, Lacey is a big sooky girl, quite happy to pose with mum in exchange for lots of pats and cuddles.
She even showed me her best trick.
Before settling down next to a log to take in the sights and smells of the hillside in the afternoon sunshine.
Although it was a little tricky to orchestrate, we ended up getting a reasonable shot of Clarissa and all three of her dogs just as the light was fading.
Just as we were about to finish up, the cows appeared. The hero of the day was actually little Chloe, who ran right up to them barking and ended up bailing up the entire herd! Lucky they are pretty friendly cows and were probably nothing more than mildly amused by this yapping little white terror, but it was a bit of a scary moment for a while. Hence, no photos to prove it, just the story!
As the cows moved off across the paddock, the girls watching them intently to make sure they weren’t coming back!
And to finish up, a lovely frinkly head tilt from Kobi.
