The trill of their doorbell sparked a thunder of excited paws, racing across the floorboards. A hearty bark behind the door made me smile ~ yup, I was definitely in the right place. And from the sound of it, my furry client was desperate to get started!
His human tugged back his collar, but he’d already decided that the lady-who-smells-of-happy-and-treats was a new friend. Flustered, she apologised while her dog covered me in a flurry of slobbery kisses. “I’m so sorry, he’s a bit crazy. Maybe we should just stay at home, I don’t think he’ll ever sit still at the park . . . “
She trailed off, disappointed and perhaps even a little embarrassed. I grinned – we were about to spend an afternoon celebrating everything she loved about her furkid. Sitting still was not part of the plan!
For many people, their biggest concern about hiring a professional pet photographer is that their dogs or cats won’t “perform” for the camera. But I’m not here to photograph performers ~ I’m here to capture life.
If you are looking for photographs of your pup in his flawless show dog pose or your kitty sitting pretty on a stark white studio floor, I can't help you. My philosophy is different. Together, we will patiently explore the world through your pet's eyes. Their determination as they race through the surf in pursuit of their tennis ball. The warm lean of their body against yours as you daydream together. The soft pads of their paws, curled up in their favourite spot on your couch.
Out of the happy craziness of our afternoon spent spoiling your pet (treats! toys! places! people!), 50 artistic portraits will emerge. Your heart will burst with pride and joy when you view your photographs at the complimentary Artwork Appointment. Together, we will look through your proofs and I will help you choose the right products, sizes and images to suit your home.
This is where pet photography makes the impossible possible ~ custom artwork that will give you a lifetime with your pet. Time and time again, my clients gush with happy tears in their eyes, “I just can’t believe you managed to capture his personality so beautifully!” The combination of a natural, relaxed approach, award-winning photography and professional tricks like digital leash removal allows me to create images that don’t just show off what your pet looks like ~ I will give you photography that celebrates their soul.
