Where are you based?
I'm located on the south coast of England in the beautiful seaside town of Bournemouth.
I mainly cover Bournemouth and Dorset but I'm happy to travel.
Just shoot me a message and we'll get planning!
My dog isn't good off the lead. Is that a problem?
Nope! Not every dog is good off the lead and so rather than putting them at risk, keeping them on a long training lead will be fine.
Infact, a lot of the dogs I have photographed have been on leads. During post-processing, I'll remove the lead so you would never know it was even there.
It might take us a little longer but safety is a priority.
Do i need to bring anything to an outdoor session?
Bring what you would normally bring on your dog walks such as poop bags, toys and treats.
As there may be a lot of running involved it would be advisable to also bring water for your dog.
This is especially the case during the hotter months.
How many images will i get at the end?
As every dog is different and every session is unique, I can never say exactly how many pictures there will be to view at the end.
I aim to have a minimum of 15 fully retouched images for you to view but there is usually more than this.
Can't i just take pictures of them on my phone?
Of course! I encourage you to.
I love scrolling through my social media feeds and seeing hundreds of different dogs every day.
However, if you wish to take it to a new level, get in touch with me and together we'll create something special.
How long do sessions really last?
The session can typically last anywhere from 1 - 3 hours.
As we meet there's an introduction, a short walk if we're on an outdoor session and maybe even some slobbery kisses (from your dog of course!) so please allow more than an hour.
I'm happy to work within your time limits though so please do let me know if you have any before the day arrives.
What happens if it rains?
The Great British weather is the one thing nobody has any control over.
I keep up to date as possible with any changes to the weather but on occasion, things can change quite quickly.
Good light is a must as this will affect the final images.
Should the weather change and it rain or become too dark with heavy cloud then we will have to reschedule.
If we do have to reschedule, there is no extra cost to you.
When will the pictures be ready for me to see?
I aim to have them ready to present at your viewing and ordering session within 2-3 weeks.
Why spend money on photos of my dog?
Why not? Your dog isn't just a pet but a member of your family and they are only with us for a short period of time.
They love us unconditionally and each and every one of them brings us joy.
Wouldn't you want something special to remember them by?
