Frequently Asked Questions
WILL MY DOG BE SUITABLE FOR A PHOTO SESSION?
MY DOG DOESN’T EVEN KNOW SIT, CAN YOU STILL PHOTOGRAPH HIM/HER?
MY DOG CAN’T BE OFF-LEAD, WILL THAT BE AN ISSUE?
My puppy isn't fully vaccinated, should I wait?
WHAT AGE SHOULD MY DOG BE?
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH OTHER PETS?
My cat won't be happy in the studio can you bring the studio to me?
CAN HUMAN FAMILY BE IN THE PHOTOS?
Sessions that are won (as opposed to purchased) are for pets only.
Children need to be old enough to sit up on their own and there’ll need to be another adult who can take them away from the studio once they’ve been photographed, so as not to distract the pet during the rest of the shoot. I don’t have a separate waiting area.
CAN WE DO THE SHOOT AT HOME?
If your home has nice light and a beautiful garden with space to run then I’m definitely open to that idea!
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
On-location Sessions: Light plays a huge part in the photos I take. If there is rain or a lot of cloud cover forecast we’ll need to reschedule. I also don’t shoot in high temperatures or strong winds as, in my experience, your dog won’t be comfortable and that will be reflected in the photos from the shoot. My number one goal is to get the best possible images for you so sessions may need to be rescheduled more than once.
Studio Sessions: These are only rescheduled due to weather if there’s a storm so loud that it will pose a distraction for your pet.
MY DOG IS SICK, CAN YOU FIT IN A LAST MINUTE BOOKING?
Where possible my schedule can be adjusted to accommodate urgent sessions for pets that are terminally ill.
DO YOU EVER COME TO ANY OTHER CITIES?
With two high maintenance dogs of my own I very rarely travel anywhere else (for work or pleasure!) but if you go to the contact form and select the fourth option under the what are you interested in dropdown, you’ll receive an auto-reply with everything you need to know about travel sessions.
DO YOU SELL GIFT VOUCHERS?
Yes, I do! They can be purchased from my online store here.
