Accessories :The Little Red Bug
This week I had the pleasure of working with a new local maker, Jessica Thomas, photographing her various hand made products to get her business page up and running. Jess, owner of The Little Red Bug, creates gorgeous, colourful beanies and headbands, as well as unique jewellery, and I am sure there is much more to come so keep your eye on her page.

This week I would like to introduce, Jet. Jet is a four year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, though you could almost mistake him for a Frenchy with those bat ears! This friendly guy loves to play with his little mate Pippa in the back yard, chasing balls and catching rabbits in his free time. He lives in any dogs dream with plenty of space to run and horses to chase! Jet is one of a kind, with those soulful staffy eyes he melts hearts. So here he is:
This week I wanted to try something different, I am still learning about night portraiture, so I may have been a little ambitious, with my lack of knowledge on this technique as well as lack of adequate camera gear... but it was a learning experience and I am not displeased with the outcome.
Our dog for week 21 is Bonnie. This attention loving corgi mix is an RSPCA rescue who made herself right at home when she arrived at my family home in 2003 (ish) we found her curled up on the bed in the master bedroom within hours of her arrival. She adores every person who takes the time to give her any ounce of attention, and she shares days with Charlie, the chocolate labrador from week 17. Bonnie was so excited to get out of the house and have an adventure for this shoot, she was full of smiles and wide eyes.
Bonus night light squiggles!
(which was unintentional when I accidentally did a 30 second exposure whilst I was walking...)
This week's little show stopper is Eddie! Eddie is a happy little scamp who steals everybody's hearts, he shares his home with a ginger cat named Nala, and he loves to stir her up at play time. Eddie is a playful little guy, who loves to chase his toys around the house tapping his little feet on the hardwood floors. He is also a great neighbourhood watch dog, keeping his eye on all the happenings in his street.
BONUS SASSY CAT!
Daniel and Emma are excitedly awaiting the arrival of a baby boy in the next few months. To celebrate the new addition to their family, they asked me to take a few photos for them as a memory keepsake.
We found a perfect location in the soft light of a Sunday evening, where Dan, Emma and Colby (big brother labrador and Dog of the Week for week 19) could relax and feel comfortable in front of the lens.
I thought what better day to post this than Mother's Day. Congratulations to Daniel and Emma and a very happy Mother's Day to Emma, and all of our Mum's out there.
Meet Colby, a delightful golden labrador who loves to roll around in the grass. looking at the photos below, would you believe Colby is 10 years old?
Colby is soon to be a big brother to a human baby, so his owners decided to celebrate with a little photo shoot. I had a lot of fun getting to know this rascal, who I have learnt is a connoisseur of socks, he loves his soccer ball and enjoys a good adventure, like most dogs.
I think Colby is looking forward to being a big brother, with a little boy joining the pack they are sure to get up to mischief together. Meet Colby,
Might be time to get away from retrievers! they have been dominating dog of the week lately, I have some fun ideas up my sleeve for next week!
