A spotlight on Miniature Schnauzer portraits

I'll be honest here. I have a slight soft spot for Miniature Schnauzers. Why? Well, because I own one. My little dog Monty (a black and silver Miniature Schnauzer), is the whole reason I create pet portraits today.


It all started after I had owned my little bundle of joy and fur for just over a year. I had seen artists on Instagram creating beautiful pet portraits from photos of a range of animals, and dogs of all shapes and sizes including Miniature Schnauzers. Whilst I have always been a fairly keen photographer, since getting Monty. I had been diligent in always making sure I had taken at least a few nice photos of him every month, either whilst we were out and about, or at home in the garden with some nice flowers as a backdrop; I felt that a pet portrait was something a little special. I am still not 100% sure what it is
