PET PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS
There are many reasons to capture professional images of you and your furry family, aside of course: JUST FOR FUN! Maybe you're welcoming a new addition to the family, want to make memories of Spring walks or fun in the garden together, or even give the unique gift of a pet photography gift certificate: whatever the reason, we have a package that can be tailored to your needs. Sadly, many pet parents also want to capture memories of their furry children who may be in failing health, and we can take care of those special needs too.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE COST?
No two puppies are alike and nor are their parents! We will work together to create the perfect package for you, whether you are just looking for digital images to share on social media, higher resolution images for printing in the future, or beautiful professional prints on paper or canvas. All quotes include: pre-session consultation and questionnaire to help design the perfect session - 90 minute fun filled photography session - minimum of 20 low resolution images in private online gallery - spiral bound proof book of all images - post session review to help selection of images and formats for printing
WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE THE SESSION?
You will receive a pre-session questionnaire to complete that will help me design the perfect session just for you. This includes questions like: What does your pet really love to do? Where do they love to sit or play or walk? What are their favorite toys? Do you want to be in the images? I will factor all these considerations into your personalized quote which will be prepared within 24 hours of your initial consultation.
wHERE WILL THE session TAKE PLACE?
I specialize in candid images of your pet in a natural environment, whether it's lounging on a leather sofa, digging in the garden, or running free across fields. We will work together to choose the location(s) that best suit(s) the personality of your pet and the look and feel you want to create. If you would like outdoor shots but don't have the space, I can arrange a private location. Outdoor sessions are best undertaken at the beginning of the day or late in the afternoon, to capture the best of the natural available light, but of course are subject to weather conditions. Alternatively, if you are looking for something more formal, I can bring our mini-studio to you and create portraits against a backdrop of your choice. These can be done at any time of day, whatever the weather. Our prime consideration when choosing any location is your pet's safety and comfort.
what happens during the session?
We have fun! I have a naturally relaxed style which will make you and your furry friend feel comfortable in no time. After a little time getting to know you, the approximately 90 minute session is all about doing what you and your pet do best: bond, play, love, have fun! I will bring natural treats to help encourage your pet to put on their best photogenic face, but please bring their favorite toys too. Whilst I have undergone training in animal communication, pet parents have a huge influence on the behavior of their animals, so please treat the session as playtime and don't worry about the camera!
when will i see my images?
Within two weeks of your session, I will schedule a time with you to review a minimum of 20 images and help you choose those you would like to cherish forever. You will have access to these low resolution images via an online digital gallery with a private password plus in a spiral bound proof book for you to keep. At the session, I will also share with you the many options available for the printing of your images, including photo printing on Kodak Professional Endura paper and beautiful gallery wrap canvas.
what happens next?
Once you have made your final choice of which images to print and in which sizes and formats. we will discuss any minor editing requests you may have. For example, removing a leash or making minor adjustments to the background is included in the cost of the prints; more extensive editing requests will be charged accordingly. You will receive your beautiful professionally printed images within three-four weeks of the date of order. Please always remember, that at the end of the day if you are not happy with your images, I will undertake another session free of charge.
