Castlemaine Dog Photography ~ Happy Gotcha Day Frankie

Today is Frankie's 2 Year Gotcha Day (Happy Gotcha Day baby girl!). When Whitney and Leigh first adopted Frankie, she was an emaciated, tiny puppy infected with a terrible case of mange. The people at the pound said that no one would want her, but the amazing team at Pet's Haven Animal Shelter saw something special in Frankie. With the love, care and patience of her amazing parents, Frankie has grown into a truly beautiful soul.

Whitney and Leigh are part of one of the most animal-loving families I know - Whitney is Jobe's human sister and they are Gypsy & Chucky's Auntie and Uncle. They are an awesome couple and I wanted to do something a bit different and quirky for their session, so we organised to head up to Maldon near Castlemaine for Frankie's dog photography session. Combine the picturesque locations of historic Maldon with a sunny summer's afternoon, stunningly gorgeous young couple and a pup with more personality than most people I know and you have one happy pet photographer! Scroll through to see some of my favourite photographs from our session . . .

Thank you for an amazing afternoon Whitney and Leigh - I can't wait to see Frankie's prints up on your wall! As usual I had an absolute blast shooting with you!!! Extra cuddles and kisses to Frankie on her special day.
