Golden are TRULY THE BEST DOGS!
When Mike messaged me over instagram enquiring about a possible dog shoot, he mentioned the dog in question was a Golden Retriever, I nearly died. As a goldie mom, I really have such a special spot for these dogs, I really wanted to photograph this shoot.
Not only did Mike book the shoot, but he booked two! I get to spend two shoots with another Golden Retriever, this is life! We did the first shoot on my favourite beach of Keurboomstrand for sunrise, a beautiful winters morning we were welcomed by a Southern Right Whale and berg winds. We ran up and down dunes, enjoyed the sunrise, got a bit wet and enjoyed the last moments on the boardwalk with big goldie smiles and doggo treats!
The very next day we headed out to the pine forests up at Alkantmooi for sunset, I have never seen the golden light so golden piercing through the pines. It was literally magical and all I could think about was these are serious bangers, I am so jelly! I want photos like this of my children! It was honestly amazing!
Sam, Mike and Gen, thank you for letting me photograph your golden boy, Zeke, I freaking loved every single second! I really wish all the best for you guys and I hope we get to shoot again soon!
