Eleanor’s friend Dani, gifted her a twoguineapigs session on her birthday so she could have a shoot with her two fox terriers. Rainbow (‘Rainy’) & Sparky (11 years, 7 months and 18 days when I first met them) were puppies adopted from the RSPCA. They and Eleanor are inseparable - including when it comes decisions about who gets to sleep where at night!
Lounging seems to be a bit of an interest all round for these pooches because there is also some competition around who gets to relax in the premium dog bed under the coffee table where everyone hangs out watching television. This might be after a busy day policing the backyard - checking out the walkers passing through the reserves behind the house. And there’s also time spent by the pool. It’s a hard life!
Luckily Rainy and Sparky also like going out for walks, as this was a component of the shoot. Rainy tends to do that “I’m gonna pee wherever you just went” thing with Sparky - but I guess that’s pooch politics for you. Also fortunate for a pet photographer looking to bribe a few poses out of her subjects, these two love chicken and will do (almost) anything to get a piece. Rainy is a bit hard of hearing but luckily chicken treats don’t need to be heard.
Rainy & Sparky mean a lot to Eleanor - she even stamped their paw prints as she plans to get tattoos of them in the near future. Now she gets a photobook with a collection of her favourite photographs from our session.
Loved meeting you all, and hanging out together for the afternoon. xox
