Pet portrait photography – capturing the spirit our true best friends
The bond between a pet and its owner is the strongest of bonds. The constant love our pets give to us is a magical thing which is difficult to describe but is a delight to capture. I never set out to be a pet photographer, it just happened as a natural extension of doing lifestyle family portrait photographs and being asked if I could take photographs of the family pet while I was there. Now I’m being asked to do pet portraits too, so I want to showcase some of my pet photography.
People or pets, my approach and style is very similar. I want to capture the spirit and character of my subjects and tell a story about the subjects in the picture.
Pet photography sessions for dogs and cats (and the occasional rabbit) start at home, in familiar surroundings so that your pet can get to know me and be comfortable being photographed. For dog owners, if you’d like to, we can go to your dog’s favourite place, open fields, the beach, the woods and make some action shots of them running around, fetching sticks or splashing in the water.
All the while I’ll be taking photographs of your dog or dogs, and of you as a family group if you wish. Each session is different and is tailored to the type of pet photographs that you would like.
Our pet portrait sessions are £95 and usually last for between one and two hours. Bespoke framed photographs for wall hanging start at £185.
If you have a new puppy, why not choose a ‘Puppy’s first Year’ Collection; four sessions taken throughout the year with a leather bound Folio storybook album made from photographs from each of the sessions. Puppy’s First Year Collection is just £795.
Alternatively, you can choose individual framed photographs, canvasses, acrylics or albums on an a la carte basis.
If you’d like an informal chat about pet portraits, details of my Puppy’s First Year Collections or to check my availability please call 01925 471091 or contact me through the Contact Page.
A pet portrait session and a wall hung bespoke framed photograph makes a fabulous gift. Pet Portrait Gift Certificates can be purchased for £255 from our online shop.
Your gift certificates will be sent to you or the person you’re buying it for in a presentation box with full details of the gift and how to arrange their portrait session and choose their bespoke framed photograph. Family portrait gift certificates do not have prices shown on them.
You can see more of my pet portraits on my blog. Find out about displaying your photographs in bespoke frames, canvasses, acrylics and albums. Here are a few other things that you might like to know about.
