I met Susie & Sam in one of my favourite places to photograph, Kindlestown Woods right down the road from my home.
We set out just before 11am, when the light is really beautiful up there.
This was my first shoot of 2018 and a big step as a photographer as I’d made the decision to move from Studio only to Outdoor also.
I always found sitting still in a class really hard and so the technical side of photography never really excited me.
I just loved figuring out where light fell and how I could work with it.
This was the ideal oppawtunity to have some fun with light, as there are some gorgeous spots up there. From the beautiful woodland to the rocks that overlook Greystones.
Sam is an Elkhound, which if you’ve never heard of them you most definitely have to Google! They are one of my all time favourite breeds and remind me very much of an Australian Kelpie. A gentle soul, he followed his dad Eamonn about the place, constantly watching to make sure he was safe.
Susie is a German Shepherd Mix and still only a pup, so she was a little bit more boisterous but still did incredibly well! I always feel that asking a puppy or adolescent dog to sit still is the same as asking a 3 year old human to do the same!
