Ooo I do love a bit of secret squirrelling! This photo shoot was executed with military precision as a surprise Christmas gift. Cover stories were created and alibies were invented. Now that the surprise was unveiled to a delighted recipient, I can share with you a few of my personal favourites.
Virginia Water in Surrey is a Royal Landscape garden and is stunning at any time of the year, but the autumn leaves really complemented Buzz's beautiful colouring. I loved having a variety of different backdrops during our shoot, made even more enjoyable by the adorable 11 month old Buzz who was an inquisitive, playful little boy. After an initial timidness about the camera, he very quickly learned that that weird clicking noise was followed by a tasty homemade treat and turned into an absolute natural. I definitely had a soft spot for him, it probably helped that his ears were almost a rival for my own hound, Scout, with their radar tendencies! :D
