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!

Chester & Abbey | Part I of A Wonderful Dog and Cat Photography Session in the Park!

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of meeting the wonderful Chester and Abbey, a beautiful Sheltie and lovely orange tabby cat. Both are currently 8 years old and share their lives with the human members of their family, who quite obviously love them dearly. They also get along with each other famously!

We started their custom photography session in their backyard to capture some of the environment where they spent a lot of their time. But then we moved to a lovely park in Port Credit to take advantage of the beautiful late afternoon light. Chester was a true gentleman, posing as if he were born to it. And he even got to run around a bit. I heard from his mum that he certainly slept well that night!

Chester, you are a delight to spend time with! I love the fringes around your ears and your lovely soft expressions. Your spirit is golden and your’smile’ lights up a room…never change. Thank you so much for allowing us the honour of photographing you!

Here are a few Posh Pets’ favourites of Chester from that afternoon.

PS: We’ll showcase Abbey next time!
