Dog photo shoots capturing the unique personality of your best friend
Your dog deserves the absolute best!
With my dog photography I produce beautiful portraits of your dog encapsulating their unique personality. We will capture some poses in beautiful surroundings, whilst also mixing in some action shots which will show the real playful nature of your dog. We will also get some of you with your dog if you are happy too.
I know how important memories of your dog are and how much they are adored by you. Portraying these feelings in your dog photo shoot is why I absolutely love being a dog photographer. There is no greater connection than between a dog and their owner, and I would love to capture that connection for you.
Dog photography sessions – How does it work?
Sessions are completely flexible and can be anywhere that your dog feels comfortable. All sessions start with a pre-shoot phone call to ensure I meet your requirements and make the best use of our time together. The sessions can be on your usual walk, in the New Forest or down by the beach. The usual format is to start with some nice posed portraits of your dog before heading out for a good long walk. This will make sure your dog is clean for their portraits, whilst also giving them time for some action photographs. A session normally takes around 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
With Social distancing the norm at the moment I will always maintain a 2m distance from you during the photo shoot. I will also wear a face mask during the photo shoot to be in line with Covid-19 guidelines. Working at a 2m distance is the way that I would normally work and so it will not reduce the photographs I would produce.
After the photo shoot your images will be edited to my unique style and then shared in your own private online gallery. Through the gallery you can choose digital downloads, a range of luxury printed products, or a combination of both. All of the printed products I offer are handcrafted and delivered straight to your door. My clients usually spend about £300-400 on products after the photo shoot to really show off their photographs to the very best.
Dog portrait sessions are available in Hampshire and the surrounding areas but read on to see what is included.

Q. What happens if it rains?
A. British weather can be very unpredictable and my style of work is hugely dependent on good light and dry conditions. Because of this, if the weather is unfavourable on the day then I would recommend rescheduling your session to another day that suits you. The booking fee would be transferred to the new date with no additional charge.
Q. Where can my session take place?
A. The majority of my sessions take place at locations within Hampshire. This can be in one of the many woodland walks in the area, on the beach or in the New Forest. Sessions can take place further afield if you’re unable to make it to Hampshire. Please note that there is a travel fee for sessions taking place outside a 30 mile radius of Fareham, PO14.
Q. Does my dog have to be well trained?
A. While basic commands, like ‘sit’ and ‘stay’, are beneficial, the aim is to capture the true nature of your dog, so you’re much more likely to get great photographs if we allow them to act naturally. I would definitely recommend brushing up on your sit/stay commands in the days leading up to your session though. If it’s still an issue, or your dog simply can’t be let off the lead, we can still work with them on lead and I will remove anything necessary during the editing process. You’ll be amazed at what can be done with Photoshop!
