Client Session ~ Lily the French Bulldog

At the Gold Coast Pet Expo back in September I ran a competition to win a free photo session, of which Lily’s mum Tracey was the lucky winner! I was so excited to be photographing a French Bulldog as I’ve been eyeing this breed off for a while having long ago deciding they were very photogenic. I wasn’t disappointed! We started off at a local park where we let Lily have a run around. She was quite happy to bolt obligingly between her mum and her human sister!

She ran out of steam pretty quickly though (it’s hard work being so cute) so we switched to doing to some exploring of the park. How cool is Lily’s little harness, by the way?

Striding out to get to the other end of the bridge, it’s always more exciting at the other end!

Lily’s family are lucky enough to live in a lovely house with a fantastic outdoor area. The deck and surrounds made great backdrops and I especially love how Lily looks against the dark texture of the deck.

Especially in black and white!

Lily is three years old and along with the family cat (who is pretty much the feline equivalent of Miss Lily looks wise) is totally adored by her family. Their last dog was a British Bulldog so you could say they’ve definitely stuck with what they like!

Lily was an amazing model, with those huge ears pricked up all the time, she always looks alert!

Apparently her colouring is not very common in this breed, as she’s actually classed as a very lightly marked piebald. The only colour of her kind in her litter, her future family decided they wanted her as soon as they saw her! She was certainly named accordingly, although there is actually some black skin under that very bright white fur, you don’t see it unless she’s wet.

Along with a snuggle-able little chunky body, Lily has the cutest little tail and her black spot edged ears are quite a feature.

I love how she looks against the pale blue of the pool.

As well as good looks, Lily has a lovely temperament and was up for lots of snuggles when our session was over, I so wanted to steal her away with me! She is also very playful and energetic when it was time for her favourite game – chasing the water from the hose!

Lily was bred by Frogwyk Kennels in New South Wales – you can visit their site here to see more gorgeous French Bulldogs.
