Model Session ~ Phoenix the Staffy Mix in Brisbane
I was still rubbing sleep from my eyes when I turned up at New Farm Park at 5am to be greeted by this eternally happy face! Butt wiggling, Phoenix immediate stuck her face in my bag of goodies and proceeded to check out the treats and toys within while leaning heavily against me and revelling in pats and scratches. I suspected from this moment this girl would be heaps of fun to photograph!
We started off around the river side of the Powerhouse building, just as the sun was rising. The “golden hour” is more like a golden ten minutes in the mornings, so we had to work quickly! Phoenix posed it up like a pro and totally owned every location we visited. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!
A super willing subject for my mentoring session with Nicola, Phoenix certainly didn’t disappoint. Stunning good looks, an impressive level of obedience and an eternally sunny disposition makes this girl a superstar of the highest level. She made my teaching job a breeze and is a total credit to her mum Lee, who was the time of the shoot, a trainer at Urban Dog Training.
Phoenix and her mum have since moved to the other side of the country, which is sad as I would have loved to use her again for some future modelling work. I am sure they’re loving life over there though.
