British Bulldog Pet Portraits

This was a fab pet portrait shoot of British Bulldog at the studio! Benjy was brought into Newcastle after a grooming session to have his pictures taken by his owner Chris. He was commissioning me to capture a large print for his girlfriend as a surprise birthday gift.

Benjy was a fabulous subject as even thought he was a bit over excited on arrival and fast movement is always the challenge with pet photography, he was fairly static towards the end so I could get really close to his face with my macro lens. The brief was for a black backdrop however spot lit shots were challenging as it was difficult to get catch lights inside those incredible folds! So softer wider lighting worked better.

For anyone wanting to photograph a bulldog, make sure you work hard at the lighting as it will enhance the details of the face, fur and whiskers. It’s also important to capture their gentle expressions as sometimes they can look cross when they are just inquisitive. Be prepared for some hard editing needed and to work with the owner on which photos show their personality best.

Any pet owners wanting to capture their pet in photos do please drop me a line for pricing or visit my prices page for packages; http://www.sarahdeanephotography.co.uk/portrait-packages/

Family Portraits, Niki Family

Yui, Takayuki and Ayto came to the studio to capture some contemporary images of the family just before number two arrived. Yui was only weeks away from delivering so the session was to be a mix of family, little Ayto, Yui and her super tidy bump!

The session was so relaxed and we caught some really lovely natural moments aswell as experimenting with back lighting for a softer more atmospheric feel and some filters and spots for a bit of colour and warmth.

There are more of Yui’s and other bumps on the live link below. Do please get in touch if you would like a pregnancy shoot to capture you (or your partner) whilst you bloom!

Portraits at the Studio!

Whilst I mainly shoot commercially during the week, weekends and evenings give time for my studio portraits, an area of my photography that I just love! The variety of expressions, personalities, props and clothing you can capture are so vast, even after 12 years it never tires.

Chantal and her boys Ben & Sam visited the studio from London for a full session after having an introductory mini session at the Play Station in Gosforth. The boys were very much partners in crime and the energy they had together was perfectly captured as the mischievous side came out! Chantal dived in for a few unplanned and we caught some lovely moments for her to present her hubby with as a surprise gift.

Anyone who is may be considering a portrait session here at the studio, have a look at my current offers on this live link and do please get in touch!

The Twins Annual Visit

You may remember these gorgeous sisters (two sets of twins with only a year between them) from previous blog posts. They have been coming to me annually since I first photographed them newborn at Venture 8 years ago. Since then I have captured them in grassy fields at home, on their first bikes and more recently in my studio with quirky props and lots of laughs. To see how they have grown here are links below;
