I visited the Cotswolds for the first time this year and fell in love with the rolling countryside & the gorgeous towns with their distinctive stone buildings. I knew I wanted to visit again and as luck would have it, just a few months later I was contacted to find out if I'd do an extended dog family shoot in, you guessed it, the Cotswolds!
As the location was further than I usually travel, the family purchased my middle package, Misty Mornings, and we booked a date. I have to admit, I was super excited about the challenge of doing a shoot with 8, yes 8 dogs and a toddler too.
Husband and I decided to make a weekend out of it and we were managed to find a dog friendly room that would take us and our hounds (you can read about it here).
The day before the shoot I scouted locations with the mum of the family and we found a lovely long path with a few options for different backgrounds. Usually I would go for a big long walk with clients however with 8 I thought it was best to stay in a relatively small area.
We got a great variety, everything really came together and I used some of the tricks of the trade to get some gorgeous alert expressions. The black & white image with whippet Monica peering round has been one of my favourite images in a while. I was so taken with all the hounds however Goose the fox red labrador was pretty special, as was firecracker Monica the Whippet. So without further ado, please meet these gorgeous hounds.
