My indoor sessions offer you the chance to have colourful and striking portraits of your dogs taken in the comfort of your own home. The sessions are conducted at your dogs own pace.
I will always take my time to get to know them a little so that they're comfortable around me and the camera. This will help them to relax and allow me to perfectly capture their individual characters.
Indoor sessions are designed to be fun, relaxed and tailored to you and your pet’s personality.
My goal is to give you an enjoyable experience with your dog, along with beautiful artwork to display in your home.
How It Works
STEP 1 - BOOK A SESSION
Contact me by phone, email or my contact form. We'll have a chat and discuss you and your dogs needs and how best to proceed with your session.
STEP 2 - THE SHOOT
This is where the fun really starts! I'll come to your home at our arranged time and date and do the shoot. These are always relaxed, fun, and taken at your dog's own pace. Shoots include photos on a plain studio background as well as lifestyle images around your home if you wish, capturing a wide variety of shots.
STEP 3 - VIEWING & ORDERING
I'll head home and edit the best photos for upload to your own private gallery. From here you get to view and order prints and/or digitals at your own leisure. For larger framed prints we can have another chat and arrange these over the phone or in person.
Prices are divided into the shoot price and the prints price as follows:
£85 for 1-2 dogs : incl. £40 credit to spend on your artwork.
£115 for 3-4 dogs : incl.
£40 credit to spend on your artwork.
Artwork starts at £30
I’m sure you’ll agree that the most important thing during any shoot is the safety and happiness of your beloved pup.
I will never put any dog in a situation that could be unpleasant or harmful to them. I want to create happy and special memories where their real personalities can shine through, and that you can hold onto and treasure forever.
My Dog will Be no good for a photo shoot!
I've heard this many times and people have been shocked by the beautiful images that they have been presented with at the end of a photo shoot. Part of being a successful dog photographer is having the ability to remain patient, friendly and fun, and anticipating what dogs are going to do. I have photographed hundreds of dogs, all of which have had different personalities and characteristics. You just need to find their motivation, be patient, have a sense of humour and let them be themselves.
How many photos will I get?
You never know what will happen on a shoot but I aim for approximately 20 edited gallery proofs for indoor shoots.
How much do prints cost?
Each shoot includes a £40 print credit which you can use towards purchases of prints, wall art, or digital images.
Prints start from £30 and you can see the full list of prices on my ARTWORK page.
Can my family join in?
Yes of course! It's great to get a variety of photos during your session, your dog is part of the family after all! Involve who you like, but try to keep numbers to a minimum so that your dog doesn’t get too distracted. You can involve your children in the shoot and I can photograph the whole family with your dog.
*How Far Will You Travel?
II'm based in Pontypool, South Wales, and include travel for sessions within a 20 mile radius of this location. Additional mileage is charged at 45p per mile outside of this radius in each direction.
I have more than four dogs, can I still book a shoot?
Of course, the more the merrier! Please contact me for a bespoke price.
What happens after the session?
Once we have completed the photo shoot I will begin the process of selecting and editing the very best photos from your session. These will then be uploaded to a private gallery for you to view at your leisure. From here, you can use your session credit code to get prints, or put towards digital downloads, and also order and pay for any others if you would like to. All print orders are checked by myself before being confirmed and shipped directly from a professional photographic lab. If you don’t want to order directly from your gallery then I am happy to do this for you at no extra charge, although orders will need to be paid for up-front. The gallery will stay active for 3 months, after which I will archive the photos to make space. Of course I will let you know before this happens.
Who owns the copyright?

If you need to purchase the copyright to your images please contact me for further information, otherwise images are sold under a personal use license. Any digital files you purchase can be shared on facebook etc and you are free to get them printed by your chosen service provider.
