My dog is too crazy, too easily distracted, too nervous, too old, too unsociable etc etc etc
These are often asked questions but don't worry! Our sessions will be relaxed and fun and I've over 15 years experience of working with dogs. I've lots of tricks up my sleeve and, if all else fails, we can always rely of good old bribery. I want the whole experience to be as enjoyable as possible for you, your family and of course, your dog!
Can I bring along family members?
Absolutely. Family members are very welcome. In fact, two people are ideal so that the dog can run from one to the other whilst I concentrate on the the shoot. It's lovely to capture the love between you or your children with your dog.
Where will you take the photos
I love to work outdoors, seeing your dog in natural surroundings, enjoying a walk. Most of these shots will be candid and spontaneous with time for more close up photos when your dog tires toward the end of the shoot. We can choose a suitable location when you book.I can also visit your home if you would like a more posed, formal photo, your dog is elderly or infirm or you would just like your dog to stay clean for his/her big day. I have all the gear to be sure of shooting a beautiful dog portrait.
What happens if the weather is bad?
I'm happy to take pictures in most kinds of weather, except rain. I will keep an eye on the forecast in the days before the shoot and liaise with you if it's looking rough. We can either postpone & rearrange for another date or take pictures in your home. There is no extra cost to you for either option.
Is it worth it when I can take picture of my dog with my phone?
The fee covers the preparation work of choosing a suitable location, the planning for getting to know you & your dog, the session time, the editing process, prepping the images for your selection & making sure your final prints are perfect to be delivered.
Phone images are so good these days however DLSR cameras have larger sensors to produce significantly better image quality.
I have a variety of interchangeable lenses for each unique shoot. Add onto that, my knowledge of composing the shot, of lighting to suit the occasion and of the editing to piece together the perfect photo.
Add all that together....
