'Image of the Day' Award from The Guild of Professional Photographers.

Today I am so excited to have achieved the’Image of the day’ award form The Guild of Photographers.

The concept:

When Judith from Judith Stewart Photography envisioned her idea, she knew exactly the type of models she needed to make it work! 🐺

“I knew I was looking for a 'wild' child, bare foot, loose hair, not smiling and a large dog which knew the child.

The image I had in mind had been inspired by the old Charles Burton Barber images from Victorian times 1845- 1894 featuring little girls and large dogs in the warm tones. I wanted to reflect the painterly feel in the images too.

Other influences were the 'Game of Thrones' and the big battle scene in the film 'Twilight', where you can see the protective element and bond of the wolf and young girl Renesmee.

This little girl had particularly piercing blue eyes and with the wild blonde hair, this all lent itself so well to what I had envisaged. I didn't want a smile, but I did want them to both look at me, so some well timed 'cat noises' helped.

I used one light, a 120cm Octobox and a reflector on the other side. I was using flash, so 1/200 sec, ISO 100, at F9 to ensure dogs eyes, nose and child were all in focus."

Beautiful. Thanks for giving us an insight into your image Judith!

New puppy?

Bringing home a new puppy is super exciting and a wonderful time to capture some fabulous photographs whilst they are still so tiny and sleepy. From birth up to 3 months of age, puppies will usually spend up to 22 hours sleeping. After that first 3 months, they will have more energy to walk around and explore but still sleep for most of the day, by six-months your puppy is an adolescent and he will have an increase in energy and wilfulness. The sooner you can book your puppy in for photographs the better if you want to capture that tiny puppy stage.

Part of the family

After some careful consideration I have decided to extend my portfolio to include Pet Sessions, after all, they are as much a part of the family as we are. I have created an All Inclusive Package which means you get the session and some images for one set price. Depending on interest I may extend the options, but always feel free to ask if you message or call. I am very flexible.
