I have several years of experience photographing dogs, both on their own as well as a part family groups. Here is some advice to make the most of your session and get the best photographs.
Please ensure your dog is walked before the session. This is very important and it also prevents any accidents in the studio! It is probably best to come a bit earlier and take them for a walk in Twyford. There is a nice big field called Stanlake meadow (which is about 3 minute walk from the studio), see map below:
Somewhere around Springfield Park is also good enough.
You are welcome to bring some treats and toys. It is quite common for dogs to be over excited or nervous when they visit the studio. Patience is key, so please be prepared to try a few different things until I capture that perfect shot. Just like children dogs can be unpredictable, so we need to work together to handle anything that happens. I am very patient, and ready to do what it takes in order to get the best photographs.
If for any reason it proves impossible to photograph the dog on its own we can take some really lovely portraits of you together. So if you have a partner, or family then bring them along and I can take a varied selection for you.
If your dog is difficult to control then please make sure there at least two people to help us get the photographs. If you have any further questions about your shoot, please do not hesitate to call.
