I’m always up for a good challenge so when George phoned me up and asked if I could do some headshots for business and online purposes…and…also include pictures of his two dogs in the same session? ‘Bring it on’ I said!
George works for an amazing charity, Scottish Veterans Residences that was established in 1910 in reaction to the sight of veterans sleeping rough on the streets of Edinburgh and provides high quality, supported accommodation for veterans who are homeless or in need.
George was nervous when we started shooting and like most people hates getting his picture taken. However, having two dogs running around my ‘compact and bijou’ studio sure did break the ice quickly. George couldn’t help but smile at Chan and Smudge’s antics.[Mental note to self – maybe always have dogs running around!!!]
But it was his interactions with his dogs that made my heart melt.
Chan was George’s first dog that he rehomed from the Dogs Trust. I love seeing the interaction of dogs with their owners. It was clear to see that these two adore each other. I loved Chan’s white socks!
Not long after Chan, George also got Smudge from the Dogs Trust and he was another cutie with the most soulful chocolate brown eyes. The stories I bet he could tell if he could talk.
George did a great job following the prep guide I sent him. Both dogs behaved really well (with a little help from some yummy treats).
We had lots of fun capturing them independently and together.
