Nahla & Zyla photo session

12 March, 2016

One of the great things about volunteering at an animal shelter (beside photographing adorable puppies and helping them find new homes) is meeting like minded people. I have been with Best Friend Fur Ever Rescue since May 2015 and in that time Stef has been a great help to me while I photograph the dogs. So when we planned a photo session with her two rescue dogs Nahla and Zyla we thought it would be a piece of cake, we have photographed many pound dogs so two house dogs should be fine right? Wrong!

Nahla is a one year old Staffy cross who was rescued from the pound in July 2015 and has come a long way since those dark days. She can feel a little insecure with other dogs but loves her fur sister Nyla to death. Nyla is a three year old Labrador cross Border Collie who has a sad past too. She was previously owned and overbred by a backyard breeder but is now living the life as a family dog and Nahla's best friend. 

We chose to have the session at one of the local parks which was familiar to both Nahla and Zyla. After a quick spout of zoomies we began out session with individual images starting with Zyla. A real snuggle bug, Zyla is a sweetheart despite her rough start to life. A lover of squeaky toys which helped get her attention for all of 2 seconds before she launched herself at me! The love between Zyla and Stef melted my heart, just look at them!

Staffy's are sometimes a misunderstood breed, but how could you not love a smile that big! Nahla was smiling from start to finish which made for some lovely images in the beautiful afternoon sunshine.

There was even time for a few kisses!
