Photo sessions - questions & answers 

 

Here I hope we can answer any questions you may have. Take a look through and if you have any other queries please get in touch and let me know how I can help. Ultimately, I like to ensure that your pet(s) will be comfortable throughout, and that you as the owner are equally as comfortable, whether as part of the photo-session or not.

 

What can I expect at my photo-session?
 

My goal is to capture relaxed and candid images of your four-legged friend in their natural environment, so my sessions are casual and customised to your pet’s personality. I want your pet to be as they always are, doing what makes them happy. Before I start photographing, I’ll spend time getting to know your pet, so they feel comfortable around me and the camera.

 

Where will the photo-session take place?
 

I am an on-location, natural-light photographer, so I come to you or we meet at a pre-arranged location — there is no studio, backdrop or props. I want your pet to be comfortable so their true self can show to their best advantage, and this often works best at a location they are familiar with — your home, or a favourite place, etc. A spot that is meaningful to you also creates great photographic memories. 

If I am familiar with your area, I can recommend a location that will work well with your dog’s temperament, breed and colouring,
as well as the style you are looking for (ie. urban or natural setting).

All cats are photographed in your home or garden.

 

What if my dog can’t go off the lead?

No problem! We can still get amazing images! I can arrange to remove the dog's leash from the images during the post-processing process.

 

What happens if it rains?
 

I’ll keep in touch with you leading up to our session day. If it looks like rain or unsuitable weather - ie too hot, we will reschedule to the next available date that is convenient for you.

 

Do you photograph all year round?

Yes! Spring, summer, autumn and winter months each provide their own unique backgrounds.

 

Will you take photos of me with my pet?
 

Absolutely! I love including people, since the bond between pet and owner is so strong.
My portraits are contemporary in style and the focus will always be on your four-legged friend.

 

What happens after the session?
 

Your images will be ready for viewing up to one week after our session. Sometimes choosing your favourite images or products can be overwhelming! I will choose the best options and provide to start with, then you decide the preferred options depending on your package.

 

Are digital files included?

Yes. I provide complimentary low-resolution, watermarked digital files for the corresponding prints/products you order.
These are perfect for social sharing, digital frames and archiving on your personal computer. High resolution files also are provided depending on your package.

 

Why should I choose custom photography? It seems so expensive.

There are several reasons to go the custom route and ultimately it’s a personal choice. But think of it this way: Pets are cherished family members and sadly, they are with us for a much shorter time than we would like. Custom photography provides a personalized experience and gives you keepsakes of special moments that will last a lifetime.

 

How do I book a session?
