Nessie, the Miniature Dachshund, has had previous onset experience shooting in both studio and location settings with a professional photographer. During the shoot, she remained calm and collected despite the loud shutter noises and flashing lights, proving to be a natural in the studio environment. At only 5 months old at the time, the photographer was thoroughly impressed with her excellent behaviour and cooperative nature.

Most recently, Nessie has starred in stills photography for the prestigious dog food brand, Bella & Duke, which has been used across their social platforms as well as at Crufts.
