    Max and Juno's Summer Holiday! (photostory)

    I meant to post this ages ago but I kept putting it off for one reason or another. It's too long to post here as I took a ridiculous number of photos for it, so you'll need to read it on my blog instead, but here's a sneaky preview of what to expect...

    Absolutely entertaining and fun.

    The photos (and the story) show you definitely put much thought and time into and it pays off.

    My favorite photo story of Max, Juno, and Baxter to date.

    Superbly done!

    Oh, sorry! I went to your blog and saw all the pictures! Great story, nice props. And I was surprised to see they're a couple. Didn't get it in the Xmas pictures you posted before. Thanks for sharing!

    Excellent. This was fun, and some really great photos and props. I especially liked the photos where Max is about to kick the soccer ball for Baxter; very natural posing.

    That was sweet. Nice to know your figures take time to test and recharge their batteries. Baxter seems like a good dog, staying with his "people" without a leash. Wish mine would do that! I enjoyed this! Thanks!

    Great to see their story continue, and so worth looking at. Rich with details, great settings, and even the delicate art. Max, Juno, and Baxter seem like old friends revisited.

    Thanks everyone! I still have some photos from our previous holiday up in the Highlands that I need to put together into some kind of narrative. The scenery up there was just stunning!

    Ha! I thought I was being really obvious in the Xmas one but apparently not! XD

    that was brilliant. I love the way you chose places that looked like they were in scale including what i assume were 1:1 size buildings ,like the conservatory roof. Well done

    Thanks! Yeah all the 'sets' were just full size rooms with some forced perspective! The bed was just a couple of my tops tucked round a cushion with rolled up socks for pillows - you've got to be able to make do when you're travelling!

    Cool photoshoot. I am especially impressed with the integration of the background, and all the scale accessories and Baxter.

    Thanks everyone!

    I've got plenty of ideas for future stories and I'm working on a few new sets right now, including a coffee shop which, while it's still very much a WIP, I'm pretty pleased with so far!

    Beautifully done. Great photos and you really capture that laid back feel of being on vacation. Always enjoy seeing a bit of Max & Juno's (and Baxter''s!) lives.

    I saw the whole story on your blog. Great light hearted story and very impressive photography. I liked the integration of nature as a background in a lot of parts. The interior shots were excellent too. The attention to detail really showed.

    Thanks guys!
    I can't wait to finish the coffee shop, as that has loads of potential for good stories!

    In the meantime, Max and Juno accompanied me to Glasgow Pride yesterday. XD They were only out of my bag long enough for a photo as the weather was absolutely atrocious, but I felt I couldn't well leave them at home and miss out on a good photo opportunity!

    I finally managed to come out to my parents yesterday too, so it was a pretty good occasion to mark.
