Gracie | Pet Photography in Mississauga, Ontario

dog photography in Port Credit, Mississauga, Ontario.

The first thing you notice upon meeting Gracie are her eyelashes. Long and dark, her dad said he is regularly stopped by strangers while on their daily walks to ask if they are real. Well, after meeting her, I can assure you all…they are real and they are beautiful. As is the rest of Gracie who I had the pleasure of photographing on one of the hottest, stickiest days in August.

We almost postponed due to the humid weather. Dogs of Gracie’s size rarely enjoy the heat, and it was HOT. But we had already postponed once due to a crazy summer thunderstorm and everyone was eager to finally get together and make this happen. So, we chose a time just before sunset, along the water, with lots of shade…and made a plan to ensure that we didn’t all wilt.

The sun was quite low at this point, but the seeing the golden rays peek just above the tall grasses adds a little something to the photo. That, and Gracie’s cute leaning sit and little tongue. And yes, her batting eyelashes.

Family photography in Mississauga

As a pet photographer, I am not often called upon to photograph children. In most cases, my clients don’t have children at home – either because the children are grown and have left home or because the dog is the child, furry as they may be. However, in this case, we had 3 children. Three! I’ll admit that I was not sure what to expect. However, I need not have worried for this family has 3 of the loveliest children I have ever met. Every one of them was well-spoken and able to not only follow directions but to give voice to their opinions and preferences when asked. Honestly, they were a joy to photograph!

We decided to create an informal family portrait along the waterfront with the lake and marina. When they saw the finished portrait, they exclaimed: It looks like we went on vacation!

By the time were done, we had captured each of the children with their beloved dog, incredible family portraits, and some solo portraits of the gorgeous Gracie herself. She is so very loved and I cannot wait to photograph this beautiful family again!

SwissRidge Doodle Romp of 2017 | Toronto Dog Event

SwissRidge Doodle Romp of 2017 | Toronto Dog Event

What a day was the SwissRidge Doodle Romp of 2017. Each year the ‘doodles’ of SwissRidge Kennels come together to raise money for a worthy cause and enjoy one huge ‘play date’ in Guelph for their extended family. I met pet parents who packed up their doodle(s) in a car or van, arranged travel documents and crossed the border from Pennsylvania, Illinois, Maine and Massachusetts, got on planes from Calgary, and in cars from all over Ontario and the GTA. Getting a photo of such a large group is a lot of fun!

Below, you can find some of the individual furries I was able to capture as they went about meeting old and new friends, running about and sniffing butts. I tried my best to remember the names of those I met, but without having written anything down, it is quite likely I have mixed some up. And then there were those who I did not know who mum and/or dad were. If you can provide further information, I would be happy to make the corrections.

So, without any further ado, please meet…
