Is your pooch your best friend? Do they make you laugh with their antics and fill your heart with love?

Perfect - then you're EXACTLY who we’re looking for.

We’re looking for happy dogs, silly dogs, furry dogs, slobbery dogs, energetic dogs, quiet dogs - Dogs of all shapes and sizes to star in a gorgeous coffee table book - Paw-Ships: A Girl’s Best Friend.

From the quiet way they rest against you, the uncontrollable excitement they have when they chase a ball, the goofy ways they steal your heart and the unconditional love they give you - we want to tell their stories.




Dogs are WOMAN'S best friend too and it's time to OWN IT!

We had a fantastic session with our dog Jett. Everything was so straight forward and easy. Sam’s communication and auto reminder set ups etc were very helpful and also the what to do to prep info. What blew me away was how Sam interacted with our dog. She was mindful that he was an animal and instead of getting him to do poses that were difficult she was able to get the pictures of him being who he is...a bit playful and a bit serious. Very professional and extremely talented. Highly recommended.

What an amazing experience! Samantha made not only our dog Banjo, but also us feel welcomed and comfortable from the outset with her warm, friendly, fun and professional manner. There’s nothing Samantha wouldn’t do to capture the perfect photo - with stunning results! Her patience and clear understanding and love of dogs made the whole experience so easy (and fun!). Would highly recommend Pawtastic to anyone looking to capture those magic moments with their pet. Love your work Samantha!

  • Can I include more than one dog + one person?

    Absolutely! This is the perfect time to include your whole fur family. I'm more than happy to extend your session time (with a $50 fee) to photograph everyone plus there is a $10 fee for each additional pet/person. Just make sure to choose 'YES' to a Session Extension & then choose how many extra pets/people you need from the options when you register.

  • Where and when do the photo sessions take place?

    Sessions will take place from Aug - Sept 2019 at pre-selected locations in Sydney. You'll be able to select the location you prefer & book the date and time that suits you for your session from my online calendar.

  • Can I buy photographs and digital images?

    You sure can - you'll have an opportunity after your session to view the images and buy what you like. You can see the full price list here >> Pricing Guide

  • Do I have to be photographed too?

    Not at all. If you're more comfortable behind the scenes instead of in front of the camera, that's completely ok. The book will mostly feature photos of the dogs by themselves anyway - and I'll share your story in the text.

  • My dog can't go off leash, can he still be photographed?

    Absolutely! That's not a problem at all. Most of the dogs I photograph are actually on lead - I then digitally remove their leash later.
