Well we are now right into 2017 and it is looking bright!
Most people are back to work now and the traffic on the roads is getting back to its norm.
I have my first shoot of the year on Wenesday and I can wait; 3 beautiful Border Collies!
But before I get blogging about all the new shoots that will be happening this year I thought Id look back on one other from 2016.
Baxta the beautiful Boxer.
Baxtas human Aunty (his owners sister) contacted me about doing a photoshoot of her brothers dog as a Xmas present.
The images couldnt go on Facebook or anywhere else as he wasn't allowed to know until he had his present in hand.
I met with Baxta's human Mumma one gorgeous day in October at Papamoa and Baxta smashed his shoot out like he was a PRO!
He sat like a pro, ran with his ball like a pro, looked up at me like a pro; and was just generally very pro-like.
I gave his Aunty and Mumma a whooooole selection of photos to choose from and they loved them so much; they didnt know which to choose so got them all.
Sadly; Baxta has been diagnosed with Cancer; which is one of the reasons they got these images taken.
Amazingly Baxta doesn't seem ill; and still has that lovely playful sense about him!
Although it is always sad to think about and we hate to admit it; but generally we do out live our best friends. The ones who are always there when we need them, who you can tell any secret to and they wont tell a soul; our best friends that love us unconditionally.
And although a terribly morbid reason to get professional images taken of your pooch; I would hate for it to ever be too late.
Even if you don't get some professionaly taken; please make sure there are some on an actual camera. Your best friend deserves so much more than the low resolution images from your phone.
