Breed of the Month Celebration!

As a dog-lover and dog portrait artist, I believe that every dog, regardless of breed, is a unique masterpiece. My "Breed of the Month" celebration is a heartfelt ode to the incredible diversity that makes each canine companion special.

Why Join the Celebration?

Whether your dog is a stylish pedigree or a character-filled bitza, this is your invitation to revel in the love we share for our canine companions. Showcase why your furkid deserves to be in the limelight and remembered forever through timeless artwork! Plus by participating, you will be helping support animal rescue.

DOES YOUR DOG FIT THE BILL FOR this month's BREED OF THE MONTH?

February’s breed is the Staffie and their mixes - English, American and everything in between.

Calling all Staffie pawrents! If your heart beats with the rhythm of the bum wiggle, and your world is illuminated by the unwavering loyalty of your Staffie or Staffie mix, this celebration is for you.

I understand the unique bond shared with these spirited and loving dogs. Your Staffie isn't just a pet; they're a cherished family member, bringing joy, warmth, and a whole lot of character into your lives. They are also the most highly represented breed in the pound system,

Join me this month as we spotlight the charisma, strength, and undeniable charm of Staffies. I'll capture the essence of your loyal pup, turning fleeting moments into lasting memories through my lens and heartfelt photography. Because every Staffie deserves a portrait as extraordinary as the love they bring into your home.

KATHY - DOG PAWRENT TO:

BOWIE, JEDDA AND PEPE

When Jo photographed my 3 dogs it was a long-awaited dream come true for me. I had admired Jo's photos from a distance for some years, but seeing her in action and how she connected with my dogs on their terms, not hers, (especially the reactive-fearful-aggressive dog) with so much patience and skill, was an amazing experience and privilege. Jo is an artist with a vision and her own style.

Of course, the photos are always beautiful, but seeing the photos of my dogs made me realise that Jo's true gift is to capture the essence of the dog's personality in the portraits.

I find myself sometimes talking to my dogs in the framed prints because I can see their soul in the image. I highly recommend Jo if you want something very special, and also for the future time when your dog is no longer with you. Just do it!

KIRRILY - DOG PAWRENT TO:

JESSE

Beautiful Mum with her senior Chihuaha at Boat Beach Seal Rocks NSW.

My dog Jes and I travelled up to the beautiful Barrington Coast in December for an amazing afternoon photo session on Boat Beach, Seal Rocks. 🌊🐚 At almost 17 years old, Jes is quite deaf, so listening to commands on cue is difficult.

Jo was so attentive and patient, whilst Jes wandered on this off-leash beach, exploring the rocks, water and sand. Jo was able to capture the most beautiful photos, that I will be able to cherish forever!

A true talent and a fellow animal lover, I highly recommend anyone wanting beautiful memories of their fur babies to book a session! 🐕📸
