These pieces are twinned with the photographs I was provided to work from.
Photographing your pet can be challenging, especially if they are determined not to stay still or are camera shy. Most animals see direct eye contact as a challenge, so will generally avoid looking straight at a camera simply because to them, it's not polite. With dogs, lower ranking, submissive or nervous individuals will look away as a 'calming signal' to tell you that they are a bit worried. Generally, distracting with food or toys can result in a window of opprotunity to take some shots.
Please contact me if you're having trouble, I can take photographs for you if you live locally.
