Before our session...
...I will ask you to fill out a questionnaire so I get to know you and your pup better and find out what kind of artwork would best suit your home.
We can choose the location based on these factors - I'm happy to photograph confident, well-trained pups in an urban environment and nervous dogs in a private paddock. Whatever your best friend's temperament, rest assured we will find the place where their true personality will shine through, and you'll have beautiful portraits of them to treasure forever.
I believe that each pup is different and needs a unique approach
That's why my sessions do not have a time limit. I can capture plenty of beautiful images in an hour most of the time,
however, if your best friend is a bit timid, I'm more than happy to hang around longer until they are relaxed enough. I can always use a long lens, so I don't need to be very close.
I'm very passionate about positive training (I was a training assistant at Sussex County Dog Training); hence the dog's comfort always comes first for me.
Remember: the Portrait Experience is about having a good time and creating ever-lasting memories. My job is to help you and your pup shine - and trust me, I'm pretty good at that ;)
A little known secret is that most dog portraits are taken with the dogs on the lead
Thanks to my editing skills, I can make your pup look as if they were performing an obedience level stay.
I also have some tricks to get my furry clients' attention - if only for a split second while I press the shutter.
All in all, I'm confident that we can create stunning artwork of your best friend, no matter how excited, anxious, or goofy they are.
During our session...
...I will take hundreds of images to ensure that I capture a nice variety, from stunning classic portraits to silly action shots. I cull and edit the best images for you to see at the Ordering Appointment. Your only task during the session is to relax and be natural - the calmer you are, the more relaxed your pup is going to behave, and that's what we want
At the Ordering Appointment...
...you'll get to see the images we created (minimum 35) so you can decide which of my collections or product(s) suits you best. We'll select the best picture(s) for your wall, the one that will make you smile every day.
I'll show you product samples to make sure you'll love the final artwork.
I only use leading-edge professional printing partners, where colour calibration is done at least twice a day on equipment designed to reproduce images to the highest standards.
That's why I'm confident to offer you a Double Guarantee:
- if you don't like your images, the session fee will be refunded, no questions asked
- if the products do not meet your expectations, they will be exchanged for free or refunded

Diane was so good with our dog at the session and made her so comfortable. The photos were fantastic, it was hard to decide which to choose! I would highly recommend Dogs In Focus to anyone wanting quality photos of their dog
