Session Feature: Pal the 15 year old Foxy

The handsome Pal is getting on in age and his mum wanted to capture some photos of her boy while he is still feeling like himself. We decided on an early morning session on her family farm, so we headed out on the farm bright and early to catch the beautiful morning light.

First stop – Pal’s milking shed. He loves hanging out at the cow shed so we had to catch one shot of him in front of it. Pal is deaf and mostly blind, so we relied on treats to get his attention. Smackos always do the trick!

Then it was out to the paddock to use the long green grass and trees as a backdrop.

Another request that Pal’s mum had was to have some photos of the two of them together. I love it when owners want to be in the photos. They make for some really special photos and are some of my favourites to capture!

Then Pal pulled out his best superman pose for the occasion. Love the attitude in this one!

To finish off we headed into the calf shed for something different. Pal standing on a barrel, lit by a single window. All natural light. Really like how this turned out!
