MAV + Co Go to Uni

 Mav + Co 2017 Gold Coast Pet Photography Session

This was my fourth ever session with Maverick, and his human Alice, and second with their now expanded family of Baxter, Cooper and Rohan.  Last year, during their travel session in the Gold Coast, we checked out the amazing Pizzey Park.  This time, we took a walk around Bond University.  First to the Architecture Building...

We then took a walk around the concourse.  What I love about locations like this, is the variety of backgrounds you can get in the one session.

Each of the boys then took their turn posing behind/around the large columns.  Then the wide angle lens came out to try and capture the expansive architecture, while Maverick waited patiently in a garden bed.

Something we wanted to do last year, was include the pine forest of Pizzey Park into their shoot.  Unfortunately a deluge of rain in the week prior, meant we couldn't access the areas we wanted to.  Much to my delight, there is a small pine forest area right near the entrance to Bond University!  We hit the area just at the right time, to take advantage of the gorgeous sunset light...

To end the session, we turned the camera on the humans, to celebrate their recent engagement.  Since this session, Alice+Rohan surprised friends and family at their engagement party by getting married.  Our heartfelt congratulations to Mr & Mrs Davis xx
