"Opening up your life to a dog who needs a home is one of the most fulfilling things you can do." - Emma Kenney
There's something about these beautiful creatures that makes you want to be a good human being. Now, imagine having 10 of them!
I got the chance to meet someone who has rescued, adopted and raised 10 of them!
And it was my first shoot for Pawparazzi! 🐾
"Every dog has it's own personality & each one shows you love in a different way"
As I pulled up to the gates of the house, I could hear the squeals and barks of dogs of all ages. The welcoming sounds and wagging tails made me want to jump right out of the car. I opened my car door, and within a fraction of a second, 3 Cocker Spaniels came running towards me, one black, one brown and one golden.
To my left, at the far end of the property, 2 Pekingese are soaking in the sun near the swimming pool.
A little to the right, an old, beautiful fawn labrador sleeping at the doorstep of the house.
4 cross breed pups in their kennel, behind us, taking a nap.
My first thought?
This is going to be an amazing day!
My second thought, this was going to be a LONG shoot for sure.
We spent the first 10 minutes getting to know everyone, learning their names and getting them used to my camera.
Treats were distributed and after giving butt scratches, we started shooting.
We spent the whole day running around the property, played fetch & tug of war.
After a tiring hot day, the spaniels cooled off in a tub full of water!
Check out the photographs from the shoot, below!
