Don’t you just love this dog’s expression?
This is one of my favourite pet photos and a large canvas of it hangs proudly in the entrance to my studio. The soulful eyes plead with you to look right back at it and most people are drawn to comment.
Matilda, a Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel who lives in Brisbane, was such an expressive and fun personality to photograph. She made me laugh so much as she would position herself into a pose, I would take a few shots and then she would move again and look at me as if to say, “What do you think of this?”
So it gave me great pleasure when her mum Erin came to visit recently and saw her dog’s portrait displayed at this impressive size. I just couldn’t resist grabbing a shot of them together.
Erin now lives overseas but Matilda stayed on in Australia to keep her grandmother Kelsie company. Lucky Kelsie to have such an entertainer in her home.
