Pet portraits with oodles of personality

The true personality of your adored pet captured

in a series of stunning portraits that you will be proud of

I will capture the spirit of your pet in a series of beautiful photographs for you to treasure.  

Over the years, I’ve developed many tricks and gentle methods of capturing endearing images of a range of household pets. Dogs and cats make up the majority of my pet photoshoots but I’m always open to photograph your unusual pet as well. In addition, I can also include you with your pet on a few images too!

I have won many awards for my pet & equine photography including being recognised as Runner Up International Pet Photographer of the Year 2020, Top 5 Pet Photographer of the YearTop Ten Pet Image of the Year 2019 with for The Guild of Photographers. Read about my 2020 awards & achievements here.

Pre Shoot Consultation

Prior to your pet’s photoshoot, I will ask you to complete a brief discovery form which enables me to learn more about your pet (or pets!) including their personality, breed and colouring.

The discovery forms is also your opportunity to share details such as if you have arranged for your pet to be professionally groomed prior to your session, any props you would like incorporated in your shoot or any ideas you would like to share.

I offer discounts if you have more than one pet that you would like to attend the same session.  Please contact me for details.

What to Expect

In order to get the perfect pictures for you, I create a relaxed atmosphere to ensure your pet is happy and settled. I typically allow for an hours session when working with domestic pets. Just like children, if the session goes on for a long time they often get bored and disinterested!

 

The photo session allows plenty of time to familiarise your pet with my equipment and make you both feel relaxed with the experience.  My pet sessions are never rushed too.

 

I have treats on hand should they be needed during your pets photoshoot, but feel free to bring along their favourite nibbles too!

Studio Photoshoot

Your pet’s photoshoot will take place in my fully equipped photography studio.  The studio is fully air-conditioned, comfortable, has immediate access to a lawn should your pet require a 'comfort break', water is always available too.

Photoshoots in your pets own home

 

In the case of elderly or timid animals who don’t like rides in the car (I’m looking at you, my fine feline friends!) Assuming adequate space, I offer a mobile photography service and can come to you in a setting that’s more familiar for your pet.

 

My mobile photo sessions essentially mean that I bring my photography studio to you! Simply contact me to discuss further.

Outdoor sessions

 

If you would prefer your photoshoot to take place in an outdoor, natural setting in a favourite location, I am happy to accommodate requests at a mutually agreeable location.  The shoot can be set up to show your pet enjoying the great outdoors, taking in the view from a tree branch or just celebrating the bond between you and your pet. 

 

Please contact me to discuss your requirements to discover what’s possible
