Finlay | West Highland Terrier Photography Session

Finlay | West Highland Terrier Photography Session

I’d like to introduce you to Finlay! As you can see, he is one of the cutest breeds out there – a west highland terrier and all-round great guy who knows a thing of two about posing!

Good things come to those who wait…

We met for 30 minutes on an early winter afternoon in Toronto, just as the sun was dipping below the horizon for his long-delayed petite session. You see, this has been booked just before COVID turned our life upside down and the world began that long shutdown. Mum works in healthcare and that has meant long, long hours and endless days of work for the last few years. Coupled with keeping herself and her patients healthy, it wasn’t until the end of 2022 that schedules came together in such a way that we could finally meet up.

And when we did, Finlay was ready to run! He showed us what an athlete he really is and how much he loves his orange ball.

I love to shoot action with dogs who are up for it. The concentration, the energy, and the expressions we capture are second to none. Here is Finlay just before the catch…and yes, he got it!

But also, gorgeous portraits.

Once we had finished running and running and running, Finlay was ready for his portraits. Finding a bit of modern, architectural lines is always a nice edition to a portrait. It draws your eye in to look at the adorable subject.

This was the last shot of the session. The sun was low, but it lit up the tall grasses behind Finlay. Put him on a rock and asked him to smile…and we were done!
