love the beach. So do Scraps and Matilda. They are lucky to live near one of Western Australia’s lovely dog beaches so I got to capture Matilda’s first day at the beach. It’s like the first day or school, only better. Winning!
Scraps is a pretty calm fella. He’s an IVDD survivor and a true gentleman. He and I have met many times at Long Dogs events and we have a kind of special bond. He was one of the super stars in the photo booth a few years back with his jaunty hat.
His new sister Matilda has the heart of a lion. Those waves rolling in, and while she found them interesting , they were nothing to be afraid of. There were two sets of eyes on her at all times of course – it was a little chilly for any of us to be going in for a dip.
I love shooting on location and finding new spots to have a good romp while we capture beautiful moments. It’s so easy to forget how quickly puppies grow and I’m so glad that this family will have images of Matilda as a wee tacker to treasure when she’s old and grey round the muzzle.
