Every pet is a loved member of the family and it's important to remember our time with them and having artwork in your home of your pet is a wonderful way to showcase a moment in time that you can cherish. I have worked with animals for over 20 years and understand the importance of getting to know a pet and making them feel at ease before a session starts. Their comfort and happiness is my top priority during the session either at the pet friendly studio in Eastwood or outdoors. I am always happy to arrange a free consultation appointment to meet you and your pet before booking a shoot. I am a perfectionist and the wall art and prints I produce are of the highest professional standard.
BOOKING YOUR SESSION
I am available for sessions during weekday mornings or evenings and on weekends and can offer a variety of appointment times to suit you and your pet. For outdoor sessions I recommend early in the morning or later in the day, near sunset. These times of day give the best natural light to ensure your images look their best. To reserve your date, the session fee is due at the time of booking. I also require a signed contract and model release before your session. Sessions can be rescheduled in the event of illness or bad weather but are non refundable once the session fee has been paid.
DURING THE SESSION
The session will generally last for around an hour but if your pet needs some more time to get settled before the shoot commences then don't worry as your pet's happiness and comfort is important to me. I will ensure that they are content with the camera and equipment and then I will capture a variety of images that best capture your pet's character and personality. For studio sessions, I usually choose a backdrop which I feel will suit your pet's colouring best but if you have any preferences then please state when booking and I will be happy to discuss with you.
AFTER THE SESSION
You will be invited to a personal viewing appointment in the studio 7-10 days after your session where you will be able to review the best images. Once you've chosen your favorite photos, I can help you pick sizes, framing and beautiful wall art options for placement within your home. All products are professionally printed offering the highest quality to enjoy for years to come. Clients spent an average of £500-£800 on their products.
REMEMBER ME SESSIONS
Our pets make such a huge impression on us and our lives and are only with us for a short time. 'Remember Me' sessions are designed for elderly or terminally ill pets and are especially for celebrating the relationship between you and your pet and the love you share together. It’s important to have images to preserve their memory and remember the happy times when they were with you and the moments you shared. During the session I will capture the little moments that make them special such as snuggling in your arms, licking your face or offering you their paw to hold. The resulting images can provide great comfort after your pet is no longer with you. I'll always try my best to accommodate you at short notice for a Remember Me session. 25% of the session fee from these sessions is donated to local pet charities.
