Lyla, Thuli & Kasper's Family Pet Portraits

I have to admit, from the moment dog-mom Nancy got in touch about a shoot with her and her parents’ dogs, I was so excited I could hardly stand it! 

German Shepherds are one of my favourite breeds, and I would jump at the chance to make some portraits with one, nevermind three!

Lyla (11 weeks), Thuli (6 months) and Kasper (4 years) were such a fun bunch to shoot. 
We had the amazing fortune of having the shoot in her parents' beautiful garden in Constantia, complete with a lavender field, an avocado grove and a little crop of olive trees

Unfortunately Nancy couldn't be at the shoot with her pups because her little baby girl decided to come a few days early, so she recruited her best friends, hubby and mom in as stand-in crew, and even though Thuli was being a typical crazy teen and Lyla was being her ditsy puppy self, we managed to work together to make some stunning photos of this wild bunch!

Below some of my favourite shots from the day!
