Pet photography

The session will last approximately one hour, more for a location shoot. This allows time for your pet/pets to get to know us and get familiar with their surroundings. It also allows them to get a good run and play. We advise where possible, you visit the studio before the shoot to look at some examples, discuss your requirements and to discover what is possible to make your portrait experience as enjoyable as we can make it. At this stage in the process, payment is usually taken so it doesn't interfere with the portrait session on the day, especially if we're on location.

Clothes are important

  • If you're having photo's with your pets, avoid big logos and patterns on shirts/t-shirts unless they are coming in their favourite football/rugby kit and you want this to be part of the shoot.
  • Quite often we remove shoes of younger babies and children as these dominate the picture. As they get older shoes may become part of the outfit, if so we leave them on, but please make sure they are clean and not too bright.
  • For location shoots, obviously footwear is a big part of the image, so think of the shoots surroundings i.e. if we're heading to the woods wellies look great.
  • Keep the colour and style similar, for example, shades of blues and greys, or all bright bold colours, all in formal wear etc. Remember if you feel comfortable in your chosen outfits that will show you relaxed in the pictures.

Bringing their own props

  • Toys, teddy bears, hobbies, footballs, musical instruments or favourite books are welcome in the shoot. We take pictures with and without props so we make sure you get a good variety of images. If you can avoid snuggle blankets or items the child carries around with them when they are tired and sleepy, these tend to look quite messy and the child often puts these items up to their faces.
