Two very cute sisters
Last weekend I had a special photo session with two sisters. Chiko and Koko are Poodle x Maltese one-year-olds, and they are full of life and just gorgeous.
On arriving at the shoot Chiko and Koko’s owner thought I might have been a salesperson as she her partner had organised the shoot as a surprise for her, and the sisters. I spent about an hour and half with the family and we got some lovely indoor and outdoor images (see below).
Photographing two dogs is an extra challenge, so generally I work with whichever dog is willing, and then swap, usually then ending with images of the two together. I find one of the hardest things to do is find tricks that work for both dogs at the same time.
The real trick is to just be patient and be ready for when they give you the look you want.
Until next time enjoy Chiko and Koko.

I recently did a photo shoot for a friend of mine, whose miniature Schnauzer puppy had a heart defect. Little Fletcher only had one of his four hear valves working and so would run out of breath very easily, he also needed to be on medication to ensure he didn’t get overly worked up as we all know puppies can do. This has meant that Fletcher start to life has been quiet and subdue compared to most puppies, that is not to say that he isn’t full of life and very friendly – he most definitely is.
Fortunately Fletcher’s condition is not that uncommon and yesterday he underwent surgery to fix it. I have heard from his Mum that the operation went even better than expected and Fletcher will make a full recovery, this means all his valves are now open and he can run around and play with other dogs and just be a puppy. Needless to say his Mum and all his friends are very happy.
As I mentioned earlier I did a photo shoot of Fletcher for his Mum on Friday – here are a couple of shots.

Creature Focus has just launched it’s new look website. Apart from the new design, there are a couple of added features, such as a contact form on the contact us page and a subscribe to our newsletter spot.
I have also updated the studio and on location galleries, so if I photographed your dog in the last six months or so, go and have a look as they may now be featured. I hope to be able to update the galleries fairly regularly to showcase new images as they come.
The other great feature is this blog, which I will update regularly with news and client photos, and if you would like to make any comments please do so as I would love to hear from you and I would be happy to answer any queries. You can also contact me through Twitter and Facebook by following the links on the homepage.
I hope you enjoy the new website and I’ll be in touch soon.
