WELCOME

Yay! Someone that you love has gifted you with a pet photography voucher and I’m so excited that you’re here so we can get started creating some fun, natural and modern images of your furry family.

Hi, I’m Sam - a pet obsessed photographer who’s goal is to create images that show you your pet ‘just as they are’.

And yes - I may have totally stolen that line from Bridget Jones Diary but you have to admit when Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) says it to Bridget it’s a swoon worthy moment.

And I want you to feel the same way about your photos. I want your images to showcase your pet having fun, playing and just being their normal, goofy selves - just like you see them everyday. That way when you look back at your images - you’ll be able to say “that’s so [insert your pets name here]…”

That’s the goal of every session - to freeze those moments and create some amazing images that capture this time you have together forever.

 THE EXPERIENCE

 

Quiet walks in the afternoon through their favourite park, adventures along the trails and off the beaten path, energetic splashes through water on the hunt for their toy or snooze sessions beneath their favourite tree in your garden.

Each pet and each relationship is different, that's why each session is tailored for you.

My style is natural light, candid photography. I document moments that happen and focus on pets being pets. Acting like their true selves in all their wagging, purring ways.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Booking-our-session.jpg

1. SCHEDULE YOUR SESSION

Online Calendar - The first step is to schedule your session. At the bottom of this page you have access to my online calendar. Here you can choose which date and time works best for you from my available time slots and book your session.

Sign the Contract - After you’ve selected your date, you’ll be directed to read & sign the portrait session agreement. Once that’s completed your session will be booked in on my calendar.

2. BEFORE YOUR SESSION

Your Pre-Session Questionnaire - Once you’ve scheduled your session you’ll be emailed a questionnaire to fill out. This helps to plan your shoot, find out your goals, lock down a location for your session and learn more about your relationship with your pet.

Helpful Tips - about 2 weeks before your session date, I’ll send you a few emails with information to help you prepare for your session. Tips on what to wear, how to prepare your dog, what happens if there’s bad weather etc.

3. THE SESSION

The Day Of Your Session is when the fun starts! I start the session off slowly with introductions all around.

We’ll talk a little bit about how the session will run and then depending on your pet’s personality - we’ll either start shooting or I’ll spend a little bit more time playing with your pet and getting them comfortable with me.

During the session, we’ll be moving around from spot to spot in the location we’ve picked, and taking lots of breaks so your pets don’t get bored.

Think of your session as play date with your pet. You’ll get to spend time together, playing, laughing and snuggling. And come out of the day with some amazing images of your pet.

4. AFTER YOUR SESSION

Your Online Gallery will be available for you to view and choose your favourites from two (2) weeks after your session. All images will have been edited fully except for removing leashes and final image cleanup (removing eye goobers etc).

You'll be able to view your images for the first time, and choose which Digital Package you would like to purchase. You have your choice of four (4) Packages and all the details are listed under the 'Digital Packages' section of this guide.

Once you’ve purchased your Package from the online gallery and chosen your images. I will do the final edit on the images and email you the link to download your photos. This generally takes two (2) weeks after you've made your selection.

Your 6x4 Gift Prints will also be ordered after the final edit. Once they are ready, after undergoing a quality check from me, they will be posted out to you for you to enjoy and you’ll be notified via email.

 MY DOG WILL NEVER SIT STILL

It’s ok… I promise that your dog doesn’t have to sit still for the entire session.

In fact, they don’t have to sit still for long at all. I photograph excited, hyper and untrained dogs successfully all the time. I assure you that I’ll be able to create beautiful, natural and fun images of your dog.

Plus I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to get the images that you want, including using an assortment of weird noises that always make the human people laugh and creating situations to take advantage of their natural behaviour.

Added to that - what you don’t see in my images, is that the majority of my doggy models are wearing a leash when their photo is taken. That’s right - they’re on lead for most of their session.

I then take all purchased images into the digital darkroom and remove the leads digitally.

POST PROCESSING

 

The Pawtastic experience isn’t complete until your images have been taken into the digital darkroom where they will be colour corrected, adjusted and readied for the online gallery viewing.

After you’ve viewed them and made your selections - all purchased images will then be taken through the full retouching process, removing leashes, cleaning eye goobers and removing distractions to finish the images for print & digital delivery.
