Fur baby dog photography | Halifax photographer

Alison knows how much Ryan’s dog Flex means to him. He really is Ryan’s buddy. He loves going for walks at their favourite park, and has this adorable habit of absconding with favourite toys to hide them… including the rubber chicken I brought with me to the session. Every time we went and got it, Flex grabbed it and headed off to a new spot in some long grass, or in some brush and tried to bury it again. The morning was perfect for photography, and was a great way to start off Ryan’s birthday.

    Nova Scotia SPCA Santa Pix | Pet photos

    It’s that time of year again, when we jump up and down and fawn over all the fur babies who come to have their photo taken with Santa. The event supports the Nova Scotia SPCA, and we volunteer our portable photolab and our time to photograph at two locations. We will be at Jolly Tails on November 27th and PetValu on December 4th. Come and see me squawk, squeak, yip, clap, meow, and hiss. It’s as entertaining to watch as it is to do, I promise! See you there.

      Ruby the wiggly | Halifax pet photographer

      Ruby is a relatively new addition to Cassie and Wendy’s family, and at under a year of age, she is full of energy and doesn’t sit still much. It became apparent within the first few minutes that the bag of chopped up hotdogs Cassie brought was going to be woefully inadequate for Ruby’s continued good behavior. It was a good thing that I always keep a stash of freeze dried chicken bites handy for my canine friends.

      Ruby’s session went something like this:

      1) Get her in position with her halter still on
      2) Cassie holds a treat and asks her to sit while Wendy removed the halter
      3) Click fast before I end up with a lap full of dog

      She was such a friendly thing, that I enjoyed giving scratches just as much as I did photographing this wiggle bum!

        Lola the big gentle dog | Halifax dog photography

        Lola is one of the sweetest pups you will ever meet. Her big brown eyes are trusting, and there is not a mean bone in her body. She is a Long Coated Akita, and she is basically an oversize teddy bear.

        It was really funny during her session when we attempted to get her up on the bench. She stands tall enough that she could lie down with her front paws on the bench, while still standing on the floor with her back paws. With LOTS of chicken and some help from mom and dad, she got a boost and lots of kinds words to keep her feeling secure.

        Check out some of my favourite images of this sweet soul.

          Two big bullies | Halifax dog photographer, pet photography

          When I say bullies, I mean English Bulldogs, of course! When Lauren and I spoke on the phone about planning a session with her fur babies Wendy and Barb, it was clear to me that the girls brought joy to Lauren (and really everyone they meet). These ladies are classic beauties with lots of character. Wendy totally cracked me up with just the tip her tongue often sticking out, and her immediate need to play whenever Barb had a toy all to herself, even if she was totally chilled out on a cool surface moments before. Barb was super playful and athletic, and definitely in her teenaged awkward stage… she rammed her head into my camera no less than three times and banged it off a table. Good thing she’s tough!

          Since Christmas is right around the corner, we decided to dress the ladies in their Holiday Best for the last few photos. Check out Santa and her reindeer.

            SPCA Pet Photos with Santa | Halifax pet photography, dog photographer

            Every year I volunteer to photograph pets with Santa at their annual fund raiser Santa Pix. Both of my cats come from the SPCA, and I know they do good work. This was really brought home to me when I had the opportunity to photograph on a ride along with one of their Special Constables a few years ago. There are so many animals out there who just need a helping hand… or paw!

            This great fund raiser is a lot of fun, and I generally end up photographing hundreds of furred, feathered, and quilled family members. Here are a few of my favourites from this year, listed in order of the date photographed: Sunny Side Mall, Pet Valu – Larry Utek, and Fall River Animal Hospital.
