Is your dog an energetic goofball that can’t contain his excitement or keep still for a second?
Watch the video below to see behind the scenes of an actual dog photography session.
You’ll be able to see for yourself whether your dog ‘needs to sit still’ for the entire session.
Hint: the answer is no 😉
YOUR DOG DOESN’T HAVE TO BEHAVE PERFECTLY FOR THEIR SESSION!
I specialise in working with dogs just like yours
Dogs are living, breathing beings and as such, a lot of the time they don’t exactly do what you want them to do, when you want them to do it.
And that’s ok.
Each pet comes with their own unique personality and way of doing things.
That’s why my dog sessions are designed around working within your pets comfort level and pace.
ENERGETIC BALL OF ENERGY
Does your dog do zoomies galore and and have an immediate need for you to ‘throw that ball’ as soon as you step outside?
Great – after introductions and some play time so that they know I’m awesome with the ball too, we’ll start our session with some action shots.
We’ll use that energy to our advantage and work with him to get the best images for you.
And then progress into their portraits and candid photos with both of you.
A BIT SHY AND SEDATE
A little camera shy? Not quite sure of new people at first?
That’s ok. In this instance we’ll begin the session with me just getting to know your dog and helping them relax.
There may be some treats involved in getting them used to the camera or just some extra attention lavished on them.
I’ll work with your dog to see what works best for them.
You can use the contact form or email me at [email protected] and ask me any questions you have.
Once you’re ready to book, I’ll email you a link to your Booking Portal. This is a convenient online form where you can choose your session date & time, sign the contract and pay the fee all from the comfort of your home.
Your session runs for 1-2 hours at your dogs pace. We’ll start out slowly with me getting to know your dogs and letting them get warmed up to me and my camera.
We’ll then let the session unfold. They’ll be a mixture of posed portraits, candid moments and action shots.
You don’t need to worry about anything, I’ll direct you if I need something specific otherwise it’s about having fun with your dog!
AFTER YOUR SESSION
I’m usually eager to see those beautiful snoots and scrumptious faces again so I’ll go through your images and pick the best of the best (cause no one wants to see your pet in those awkward/disturbing poses they sometimes do), and have them ready for you to view in a beautiful online gallery within 2 weeks.
You can then pick your favourites for purchase – See below for more details on pricing.
Your session is $200 for 1-2 hours with up to 4 subjects* (that includes both humans and pets), which is due at the time of booking to secure your spot.
*Additional subjects $25 each
There are four (4) Digital Packages from which to choose from. However, there’s no need to make a decision upfront. You can choose which package you would like to purchase once you’ve seen your photos in your online gallery.
All Digital Package orders can be done online with credit card or bank transfer.
You can also save up to 30% off your package (depending on the package you choose) if your purchase in the first 48 hours of your gallery going live.

CATS HAVE TWO SPEEDS: SLEEPING AND WARP DRIVE.
They’ve been known to tackle toys and bring them to justice with their feet of fury. They love to pounce on any movement from string toys to laser beams. And boxes… well… as the saying goes – ‘if I fits, I sits’ – need I say more?
My cat sessions are designed around your cat, their personality and their comfort levels.
FRIENDLY AND OUTGOING
Is your cat happy walking up to anyone to demand pats? Do they let you and any visitors know that it’s their job to simply keep them happy with pats and playtime?
Great! Since your cat knows he’s king of the castle, we’ll follow his lead and start capturing him in all his glory.
Whether that’s playing with toys, loving up on his humans or simply lording over his domain. We’ll go at his pace and capture it all.
SHY AND TIMID
Is your cat more likely to hide under the couch when they hear a loud noise? Or skitter away when they encounter a new person?
That’s fine. We’ll start the session slowly with toys, to entice them into playing and to give your cat a chance to get to know me, before bringing out the camera.
