Portraits of Duchess and Hunter [Sydney Pet and Family Photographer]

Meet Hunter and his one year old pet Dog Duchess the Groodle. We photographed the beautiful pair at their home near Balmoral Beach, Mosman. The photo shoot was hilarious and was like a comedy act as they both loved being centre stage. Hunter’s parents Pam and Steve have a commercial video production studio at their home so this is where we photographed them. Instead of using our own studio equipment we made use of their continuous video lighting and the lovely natural window light.


Duchess has a very happy, friendly and loving nature. If you have never heard about the groodle designer breed before and are wondering, they are a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. I am told that when these delightful dogs are fully grown they reach 65cm and can weigh between 30-45kg.
