What's Included in the session fee?
A Phone Consultation
The best way to get to know each other a bit more is to have a chat over the phone. Our consultation call allows me to get to know your story and hear more about your dog! We will speak about your ideas for the session and you can ask me any questions. If after the consultation you’d like to go ahead, we'll get a date in the diary, decide on the location for your session and I will send you an invoice for the session fee of £99.
Once we have confirmed your booking, you will receive your welcome pack full of advice and tips on how to prepare for your photo session. I understand that the run up to your photo session can be nerve wracking, it's not every day you book a professional photographer. I have created a guide on how to get your dog ready for the session. And if you would like to be in the images as well, there are also tips for yourself in the welcome guide. I'm more than happy to help with advice on outfits, makeup and any other questions you might have. If at any point, you’re unsure on anything, please get in touch, am always here to help.
The Photo Session
Time for the fun part! We will start the session by meeting your dog and having a chat, this will help your dog to get used to me and we can create a loose plan for the session. Once we start the session, please don't worry if your dog isn't on his/her best behaviour, I promise we will get those beautiful photographs. I have a whole big bag of tricks and loads of patience. Remember, the more you relax and enjoy the experience, the more your dog will relax as well. Sessions normally last for approx. 60-90 minutes.
And if you would like to be in the photographs yourself, I've got you covered! Making you look gorgeous and creating beautiful photographs is my area of expertise. Whilst my style is natural and relaxed, I will give you directions and guide you through some poses. Your job is to keep smiling, loving your dog and enjoying your session.
After your session, I take your photographs home and back them up multiple times, ensuring no images are lost. The first step of editing is the selection of the best images, I will take out any unflattering images, think of closed eyes, funny faces, etc. Once that is done, I will then go through each image individually and make any fine adjustments, i.e. cropping, straightening, colour correcting and polishing until they’re perfect.
The Big Reveal
Fall in love with your dog all over again! Approx. 2 weeks after your session, I will send you a link to your very own password protected online gallery. Giving you the opportunity to view your images for the first time and enabling you to choose your favourites from the session
Private Ordering Appointment
Once you have viewed your images, we will arrange your ordering session, where I will visit you and show you my stunning range of product samples. I will help you design and create anything from wall portraits to albums, keeping your budget in mind, so that you are 100 percent happy with the results. Having your ordering appointment at your home gives you the advantage to see what a certain product and wall portrait sizes would look like on your wall. I promise, no hard-selling!
