What exactly is an Ordering Appointment and why do I utilise them for my clients?

Today I go into details about what an Ordering Appointment is, what you can expect when you have one and the benefits they have for my clients.

 What's the deal with an Ordering Appointment? Why do some photographers have them and other have online galleries? Here I explain what an Ordering Appointment is and why I have them for my pet photography clients | Pawtastic Photography

The Ordering Appointment is the first time that you will get to see your images after your session. There are no sneak peeks on social media or my website so that my clients (besides me) are the first ones to see your images.

Here you'll be able to see your images, narrow down your favourites and choose how you would like to display them in your home.

Generally, for your convenience, I come to you in your home for the Ordering Appointment. I've found this is often the easiest solution for my clients, plus it allows me to see you space and make suggestions based on what you want.

However, I'm happy to meet at another location, like a cafe, if that makes it easier for you.

Ordering Appointments: Why Have Them?

The Ordering Appointment takes about an hour of your time and is conveniently located in your home (or a cafe if you prefer).

The reason I have Ordering Appointments and don't have online galleries is ease for my clients.

Now, you may be wondering - "What? Wouldn't an online gallery be so much easier?" 

And typically that's what a lot of people think too, until they have their Ordering Appointment...

The Ordering Appointment is a dedicated time set aside where you can go through your images one by one without interruptions and choose what you want. With personalised service there to help and guide them whenever you get stuck, confused or trying to pick between two things.

How This Helps You

Imagine being able to knock your order out in an hour.

Imagine having help to decide what it is that you actually need.

Imagine being able to ask questions right then and there (instead of trying to remember them all when you go to write an email later)

Imagine having the entire process done for you so that you don't have to think of a thing.

That's the benefit of an Ordering Appointment. I take care of all the little details so that you don't have to.

You don't need to learn a new software to pick your images. You don't need to remember to set aside a time to look through them all and pick your choices before the gallery expires. You don't need to do anything except pick a time, and I take care of the rest.

Why Have Them At Your House?

Two reasons...

1# Because it's convenient for you. No need to schlepp your way across town for the appointment when you can have it in the comfort of your own home.

#2 Because when you're planning out what artwork you want for your walls and your home, it's helpful for me to see the space in order to help you get what you need.

Your Space

Being able to have the Ordering Appointment in your home allows me to see your space and your design style.

Instead of trying to explain what you want you, can literally show me. 

You can show me where you were hoping to hang your artwork, the spaces you were thinking of, the type of artwork you are after and the sizes you were thinking.

And since I can see the spaces I can then take some measurements and photos so that I can show you exactly what certain images will look like in that space.

I also have computer software that allows me to input a photo of your wall and show you what that wall will look like with one of your images on it. I’m also able to show you different combinations of artwork with the varying images, as well as different sizes for that particular space.


You'll be able to see and plan exactly what photos you want on your wall, as well as which images look good together as a series.


If you're like most people, visualising what a space will look like with artwork on it it is often hard to imagine. With me, you don't have to guess. You can actually see what it will look like on your wall AND be able to change the design until you find what works best for you.

By having Ordering Appointments, I'm able to help serve my clients better. It makes it more convenient for you and provides you with help every step of the way.

No to mention, I take care of everything so you don't have to.
