Last year, we raised $1.1 million nationally to assist in the care and protection of Australia’s animals. This year we want to top that total with hundreds and thousands, and reach our target of $2.5million! The cherry on the top of the cupcake is that for every $100 raised online, you’ll receive one additional entry into the draw to win 1 of 2 Kymco scooters – perfect for last minute baking deliveries!

Whether you register as a Cupcake Cook or go into training as a Cupcake Eater – you’ll be supporting the 155,000 animals that the RSPCA cares for every year.

Studio Client Update

In between our 5 day trip to Adelaide, we have been working hard in the studio, and have met some adorable dogs recently. Here are some pics from our recent pooch photo sessions.

First up is 6 month old black lab puppy Louis. He was such a cute little guy with a big personality – and he went crazy for the liver treats!

Then we met Bondi, an adorable boxer gal. She drinks out of a sports water bottle, and bought her zebra soft toys along to the shoot! She had two ‘bling’ imported dog collars which were simply magnificent – and suited her to a tee.

Bruno the happy chocolate lab paid us a visit! He reminded me of Scooby Doo and had soooo much character!

It was the week for boxers, with Sophie, an 8 year old, having some portrait shots captured as well. The pics were a gift from her mum to her dad who is working overseas!

And last but not least is Chilli, the 13 year old long haired jack russell. Age doesn’t stop Chilli from doing anything, not even this well balanced move!
