What to Expect from the Photo-Shoot:

We want you to get very best results from your pet's photo-session, and also to have fun! We make sure to help you and your little friend be well prepared, so you'll all enjoy the experience.

Before the Session

We’ll chat with you to discuss what sort of images you’re looking for, and to decide on the most suitable setting and best time of day for the photo-shoot. We will happily do the session at your home or on location, if there’s somewhere you enjoy going together. Our primary concern is that your pet feels comfortable and relaxed.

An indoor photo-shoot is well-suited to cats, birds and small pets and can be coupled, where appropriate, with a backyard session. For a more ‘studio style’ shoot, an indoor session can work well for dogs too.



A backyard photo-shoot is a great all-rounder. We do some posed shots and integrate some activity, to show your pets’ playful side.


An outdoor, on-location shoot is great for dogs, especially active dogs! We still do some posed shots, but also get to capture them interacting with the environment and in beautiful scenery.



During the Photo-Shoot

You can be involved as you wish in the process. If you’re happy to help, we will certainly rope you in to help wrangling and getting them to look at the camera! Often, their best expressions will be seen when they’re look at you!



Following the session

1-2 weeks following the shoot, we post a private gallery of proofs, from which you choose your print products. We have lots of experience with framing and presentation and will be happy to advise you on the best options for your particular space.

All this information, along with tips for preparing for the shoot, will be discussed upon booking and we’re always happy to answer questions!
