Essex Pet Photography

"Never work with children and animals." That age old saying really doesn't apply to photographers where our two most called for family photographs are for portraits of Children and of pets. To be honest, both are generally a delight to photograph.

I had the pleasure last week of conducting a photo shoot for Pawlas- Home form Home dog boarding services, based in Benfleet, Essex. In for the 'shoot' that day were 10 dogs, including Erica our own Cockerpoo. The session was great fun and it was highly entertaining watching Paula and her co-worker arrange the animals and getting them to behave. To be fair, all the dogs were great and hardly problematical at all....that is, except for one...Erica! Erica is the largest dog that Paula will look after, as she specialises on small to medium breeds and Erica is not exactly big, although she is quite stocky (she's the chunky Blonde in the photos) And stubborn. Stocky and stubborn! Erica is a regular guest at Pawlas and I have been assured is normally very well behaved. On this occasion though she was obviously playing up because her owner was there. She would tell all the doggies off if they got close to me or 'god forbid' wanted to sniff the various pieces of camera equipment we had around the place. Typically whenever we went to take a shot, Erica would just come and sit right in front of the camera lens.

Eventually we managed to get her to settle down and had a great time getting some wonderful photographs of Paula and the doggies. 

There was a beautiful mix of dogs, all of whom seemed very happy to pose for the camera.

Paula Gittens started Pawlas a number of years ago and offers a fantastic service for those of us who need our dogs looked after from time to time, whether it is whilst we're on holiday or while we are at work. My wife and I have used various dog sitters over the years for Erica, but none have made us feel as confident at looking after her as Paula does, with Erica always looking healthy and happy when we pick her up.
