Once you have chosen a session package, click on the Book a Session button. Fill out the Booking Form describing what you want from the session and to request your preferred date. I will get back to you shortly to confirm the details. Once we have settled on a date and time, we’ll complete the booking process online. I am able to hold sessions either late afternoons or early mornings, in the few hours before sunset or after sunrise as these are the most ideal times for nice, softer sun. Dates and times will be secured when a session fee is taken and the photography contract is signed.
Once your booking has been confirmed, we can discuss suitable locations for the session and I will send through my Session Preparation Guide and a Questionnaire. Here I will ask you questions about your pet, their personality, their quirks and what you love the most about them!
As I use natural light, I will keep up to date with weather changes. If the weather on the day of your session is unsuitable (e.g. thunderstorms, strong winds, very dark with clouds) I will reschedule your session for another day. No extra cost to you!
Let the fun begin! This means treats, playing, exploring and cuddles!
The session will begin with a short walk and some friendly interactions with your dog to get them warmed up to me and my camera.
I will work with your dog to capture their unique character and follow their interactions to capture them having fun and being…well, them! During the session, I’ll create some fun action shots, beautiful pawtraits and natural candid moments. My goal is to capture that special bond between you and your dog.
If your dog is very energetic and active, we can start off with some fun action shots, playing and running around. Then we can progress into some pawtraits! If your dog is shy, we can sit around and talk and give them more time to make sure they are comfortable with me being there before I start photographing.
Have fun, be natural and enjoy playing with your dog! I will require your assistance at times and I will let you know where I need you to be and if there is something specific I need you to do.“My dog isn’t good off lead”
Not to worry, safety comes first. I can’t let my own dog off lead much either. Leads can be removed in digital post production…and you’ll never know it was even there! We can also use longer leads for action shots! However, I do ask for no harnesses as they are difficult to remove in post-production.“My dog doesn’t stand still”
Don’t worry if your dog is full of energy and can’t sit still! I aim to capture them having fun and being them! We can use a few tricks to get them where we want them in a shot and have also family member hold them on a lead out of frame to get some pawtraits.
Let the fun begin! This also means treats, playing and cuddles!
These sessions will take place in your home, either indoors or outdoors in your back yard or on your balcony. They are designed around your cat and their personality. The session will begin with me getting to know your cat and interacting with them.
I will work with your cat to capture their unique character and follow their interactions and capture their character going at their pace! During the session, we’ll capture those pounces, their determination, create some posed pawtraits and natural snap some candid moments. My aim is to capture that special bond between you and your cat.Your role
