How to Pet Photography Sessions Work?
Booking Your Session
I believe we are lucky to be blessed with all four seasons here in the UK, they are all beautiful in their own way. Whether it's the soft green tones of Spring or the golden leaves in Autumn - every season has something to offer when it comes to photography. If there is a particular season you'd like to capture, please contact in advance to make sure you secure your perfect session. I'd love to hear about you and your pet(s)! The more information you give me, the more I can customise your photoshoot. When you enquire, I'll send you a full product list and a session guide. Browse my portfolio and products available so you have a good idea of what you want out of your session and together we'll make the magic happen! Natural light is just as important as my camera. If the weather isn't ideal for your session, we will simply reschedule to the next available date.
Choosing Your Location
You are welcome to choose your own location or pick from the location list which will be in your session guide when you enquire. Photoshoots normally take place in a natural setting such as a local park with a lake, woodlands or a hilly, mountainous location with wonderful views. Urban towns or cities can also be a great setting for some really unique and vibrant images. If you are struggling to choose a location, take a look through my portfolio to see if there are any images that you’d like to recreate with your dog, I can then guide you to where the best location will be to achieve it. Please let me know if you or your dog have any health issues so that we make sure to pick a suitable location. Pet Portrait sessions cover me to travel 20 miles from the studio in SN12 6RT. If you have an old dog or have cats, the session can be done at your home.
Enjoy Your Session!
When the day of your photoshoot is finally here, we'll take some time to greet each other and for your pet(s) to get to know me. Friends and family members are of course welcome as long as it's not too distracting! Your dog(s) may also need some time to sniff and get used to their surroundings, especially if it's their first time at the location and they are all excited. If you have a cat(s) that is a bit shy, we'll take it slow and make sure that they are comfortable before we start. If you'd like to be in some of the images too, no problem! There is no rush during your session, we'll take as much time that is needed to make sure we get the best results. Before your photoshoot, please read the section on how to prepare for your session which will be in your session guide.
The Final Results!
After your photoshoot, I'll start the process of selecting and editing your images. This usually takes two weeks to complete. We'll then schedule a viewing and ordering session at the studio (SN12 6RT). At your appointment, you'll view your images and choose your favourites! The amount of images you will view varies from session to session but the average is around 20 -30 images for one pet. Once you have chosen, we can begin selecting your products to create beautiful artwork of your pet! I always ask clients to look through the product list beforehand to get some inspiration. If you already know what product you'd like to order before your session, please let me know as this will help me plan your session better.
Don't just hear it from me! Here are some happy clients -
"Had a photoshoot recently with Alex, and our big dog Doughnut. Alex was the dream to work with. On the day of the shoot, our big dog was being quite hard work outside, Alex was fully prepared, full of ideas and energy and got so so many great shots of him. It was such a great and fun day. Viewing the images was very special, narrowing down the ones I loved the most was the hardest part, they were all FANTASTIC. Such a joy to have so many great photos of our handsome lad. Her communication in the lead up and afterwards was great too. I cannot recommend Alex enough. WOW!"
"I was gifted a photo shoot for my Golden Retriever puppy by my sister and it was the best present and experience I could have hoped for. Alex and Ed were super friendly, encouraging (which is needed with a 6 month old puppy) and professional; coming fully equipped with everything needed for a successful photo shoot, loads of amazing ideas and no feeling of pressure or rushing for time. The resulting photos were incredible and it was such a tough decision selecting the ones I wanted as prints and digital copies. There was no pressure selling when viewing the images and you can tell that Alex absolutely loves what she does and really wants you to get the most from the photo shoot. If you are looking for amazing photos to capture the true personality and beauty of your pet, I would highly recommend Alex!"
