Another year has passed by so quickly
2021 has been a struggle for everyone, but I’m so pleased that when the rules allowed me to re-open I’ve been able to meet so many lovely dogs and their owners.
I’m very grateful to those clients who trusted me to capture their dogs out on location and travel to spend time in our little part of the beautiful North Wales countryside.
Looking back through these images it’s strange for me to see that obvious gap where the first quarter of the year is missing. Those sometimes foggy days, the frosty/blue/cold tones to the Winter session images just didn’t take place. I usually run sessions throughout the year, just taking a break for our own holidays.
So I’d typically have client session images to show from all seasons. Lockdowns prevented that happening, of course, but at least I did have snowy images of my own dogs to include in this year’s slideshow.
The other obvious element missing from this slideshow is studio images. In the middle of 2020, I took the decision to only offer location sessions. It just seemed to be the safest option for my clients and my family. I love those sessions and the images I create and really miss them in this slideshow. If the situation improves early next year, I do hope to be able to restart studio pet photography again.
If you would like to be first on my list for studio shoots when they start up once more, please do get in touch.
Here’s to the health and well-being of all my clients in 2022 and let’s hope we have a little sense of normality once again.
On a personal note…dealing with loss and new additions
2021 brought our own personal loss, with us having to say goodbye to Millie our beloved Springer Spaniel. I’ve written a little blog post on how we dealt with this a little earlier in the year, if you are interested.
But with the loss of one dog, comes the invetiable (at least for us with a multi dog household) a new addition. As is always the case with a new puppy, our house was blown apart by the arrival of another Working Cocker Spaniel – Izzy. She’s been/is a challenge but has done her very best to fill that void in our hearts after losing Millie.
I very much look forward to seeing how she matures and progresses with her training and her life with us in 2022.
Would you like images like these of your dogs…do book in now
I’m going to be working hard to ensure that next year starts off with a bang. Starting with the celebration of what is my 10th year as a dedicated dog and equine photographer.
Why not celebrate with me and book your dogs in for a session and find as much enjoyment in the artwork I provide as my clients did in the last ten years.
