Leisure Island, Knysna is such a wonderful venue for a pet photography session. It’s a small island in the Knysna lagoon, reachable by road with lots of grassy fields, flowers, shady walkways, benches under leafy trees and of course a view of the lagoon and the Knysna Heads. The area lends itself to beautiful light in a natural setting and I was fortunate enough to do a photography session there with Scruffy and her human, Didi.
I met Scruffy and Didi at a “Ladies Tea” a few weeks back (more of this in another blog post) and I was smitten. Scruffy has the most endearing face with a personality to match and I just couldn’t wait to get her in front of my lens.
We started the session at Didi’s home.
Had a spot of lunch, then moved on to Leisure Island for a late afternoon shoot.
Scruffy’s background is a little bit of a mystery but suffice to say that Didi rescued Scruffy from a sad situation and gave her a healing and loving home and it’s fair to say that Scruffy has done her own share of helping Didi to heal from past hurts and wounds in her life too.
So, there you have it. They saved each other and lived happily ever after.
All my love
