Client Session ~ Buster, Roxsie and Maxsie in Brisbane

Three dog sessions are always heaps of fun, and this one was no exception. You’d never think to look at them, but two of these pair are the ripe old age of 14. Buster is no spring chicken either at 8 years old! This really is a perfect time to get photos of your doggies if they are getting on a bit and you’d love to have some beautiful photos to remember them at their best.

Wow do these dogs have the life. Living near the bay in Brisbane, they reside in a beautiful old Queenslander house with a lovely back deck, complete with lots of doggy beds to lounge around on. Kathy, their devoted Mum, just loves her babies and it really shows. This is Buster. The shot on the left was the head tilt I managed to get just as he decided that the squeaky noise I made to elicit it was actually quite scary and needed to be barked at! Repeatedly! Until the treats came out and all was forgiven.

Roxsie is the shyest of the bunch and was quite happy to let the other two hog the limelight. She was definitely up for cuddles from her Mum though!

The star of the show and most definitely the most willing model was gorgeous West Highland White Terrier, Maxsie. I’ve decided that if I ever get a little dog, these guys will be first on the list! I love their alert little faces and pointy ears. Maximum cuteness!

Though in the cute stakes, Roxsie is definitely up there too.

Kathy told me that the three pups like to sit on the top step at the front of the house, so we headed there to see what we could do. We even managed to get one dog sitting, one standing and one lying down. How’s that for talented pups! I thought these photos would suit a bit of an antique look so created a cinnamon-toned version which I love.

Their little legs all lined up were adorable and deserved a feature of their own.

Kathy was wearing a beautiful crisp white top, but didn’t hesitate to lie down on the floor for these shots for me. What a champ!

Such great models to work with, human and canine alike!

After a quick change of shirts (sorry Kathy!) we packed the dogs into the car and headed off on a short drive to the bayside for some more shots. The dogs were sooo excited, so good to see they love getting out and socialising.

Buster is quite the explorer.

As is Maxsie!

After a run around and a good sniff of all the good scents, we set up for some more posed shots of Kathy and her pups. I’d have to say this one is my favourite.

With this one running a close second!

All the dogs were lavished with some individual attention from their Mum.

Then it was time for a quick stroll back along the beach.

To finish off we went back up onto the grassy area to catch the very last light of the afternoon – my favourite light! Maxsie was looking gorgeous as usual.

With Roxsie quite content to hang out with her Mum.

Thanks for a wonderful afternoon Kathy and pups!
