Styled Shoot: A girl and her bunny …

Coverting shoes, handbangs, even another woman’s hair,  well , we’ve all done it, haven’t we ?
Ah don’t look at me like that, you know you have…
But Pet Envy, now that’s probably something that has me as the only one with my hand sheepishly raised.
Growing up we were a two dog family. A blonde dog ( usually a Labrador or Golden Retriever) and a brown dog ( usually a German Shepherd or Alsatian) no cats, hamsters, guinea pigs or budgies.
Just 2 dogs.
My cousins were the interesting pet family, our Dr Dolittle relatives with a talking cockatiel, a cat who could do tricks, and even a ferret !
One birthday my cousin got a beautiful black bunny as a birthday present. With a pretty red bow around its neck. Envy complete.
When I eventually got my own home I bought chickens, laying hens I called Henny & Penny,  a duck, called : wait for it, Duck, an Australian Cockatoo, called Blu, a chatty cockatiel pair called Henri ( Henrietta ) & George, goldfish and koi, all to accompany my blonde and brown dogs.

Last year friends left the county and dare I say it ? I hopped at the opportunity  to adopt their pet bunny Minnie.

Minnie is the sweetest pet, she is so lovable, and my daughter adores her. I could not miss an opportunity to style a shoot with her , and who better to shoot it than the awesome Nestling ladies in their absolutely B E A U T I F U L  and ( enviable ) new studio.
