Coco's mum Matisse won a session that I donated to the Brisbane Agility Dog Club's raffle in December. (I know, could I be any later with my blog post?) I was extremely excited for this session, as Coco knows a whole heap of tricks. While it's not a requirement at all for a photoshoot, it is always fun to work with.
We shot Coco's session at New Farm Park- a busy location, but I have not seen it quite so busy there before. A huge fashion shoot was taking place, there were people everywhere, bikes, dogs, joggers. You name it, there were probably at least two. Thankfully, Coco is a rockstar and didn't bat an eye. After a few snaps in the area adjacent to the car park, that had been set up with umbrellas, wooden crates and bean bags, we went to the far end of the park, for some photos amongst the trees and gardens, hoping that it would be less busy by the powerhouse as the day wore on.
As the afternoon wore on, the area by the powerhouse itself quietened down. I knew Coco would look phenomenal against the red brick wall, so I wasn't leaving until we had some shots there!
I've come to realise I have a habit of saying we are done, only to walk back towards the carpark and ask for "just one more shot!" More often then not, that one last shot that I just must have, usually end ups being my favourite. For Coco, I had many favourites, but this one is top 3. I saw they had turned on the fairy lights above and just had to get her amongst all the colour and lights for one more shot.
