Murphy the miniature pinscher

We photograph so many dogs in the great outdoors that sometimes it’s a pleasant change to have a shoot in a home environment. So when Lucy & Jon opted to have their miniature pinscher Murphy photographed in the comfort of their own home and garden I was excited to see what we could achieve.

Murphy was very relaxed and quite the poser.

Having taken a wrong turn just before I arrived at their house, I had unwittingly stumbled upon a cool backdrop for a shot, which I suggested we visit briefly just for a bit of a wider variety of photos (plus I love a good industrial backdrop!)

Murphy stayed on the lead throughout but I worked some Photoshop magic on this one.

When we returned back home Jon headed out once more, with the plan of us capturing a lovely shot of Murphy waiting for him to arrive home. I’m sure most dog owners can relate to this one…

With Jon back in the house Murphy was very chilled out and enjoyed resting on the cosy rug by the fireplace.

With all the items ticked off his To Do list for the day, there was nothing more to do than hop up onto the sofa, pull one last pose…

and prepare for sleep.
