Dog and Equine Packages
WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
The first step to booking your photo session is to choose which session type is right for you and your animal. All Photo Sessions are tailored to suit you and your dog or horse and include a pre-session phone consultation to help you prepare for your photo session. They also include the first 20 miles* of my travel to the location, a private gallery, and an ordering session after your session.
Please note, that the session fee does not include any printed products or digital files.
Pulling out all the stops!
Imagine being treated like royalty or a film star for the day…
You’ll start the day with a professional hair and makeup artist, who will make you look and feel gorgeous.
Following your make-over, we’ll head straight into your photo session and create beautiful magazine-worthy images of you and your furry friend.
Dog and Equine Sessions
capturing their character
Grab your dog and/or horse and let’s have some fun!
Focussing on creating beautiful images of your animal, capturing their character and what makes them special!
This includes portraits, action shots, and perhaps even a few photos with you and your dog or horse together, to capture the special bond you share.
Remember Me Sessions
Immortalise your furry friend
It’s a sad fact, that our much-loved animals don’t nearly live long enough.
At some point, we will sadly have to say goodbye to our beloved furry companions and it is one of the most heartbreaking moments in our lives.
My Remember Me Session celebrate our golden oldies and give you beautiful images to immortalise your animal.
Yard Photo Days
Having a fun day with all of your friends
Yard photo session days are a great way to spend a fun-filled day with your favourite four- and two-legged friends, while creating beautiful images for you to treasure forever.
As an added bonus you’ll also save money on your session fee! Get in touch to find out more and enquire about available dates.
Let’s create forever lasting memories
LASTING MEMORIES YOU CAN TREASURE
By keeping your session fee separate, I can ensure that you only pay for the service you receive.
This means, once you have paid for your photo session, you are under no obligation to make any further purchase unless of course, you would like to and pretty much all of my clients do.
I promise no hard sales!
The prices for products vary, depending on the chosen size and style. My product packages start at only £249 (which includes the session fee) and a la cart prices start at £29 for prints and £139 for wall portraits and go up from there.
On average my clients spend between £249 and £1500 on their photographs.
As a bonus, you will receive the matching digital files for sharing on Facebook and Instagram, with any prints and wall portraits you purchase.
* A small travel fee may apply for locations outwith a 20-mile radius.
YOUR ANIMALS ARE THE BEATING HEARTS OF MY BUSINESS
As a dog and equine photographer, I know ALL the tricks and tips to create incredible images with four-legged subjects, and I also love and adore your precious animals.
HOW IT WORKS
PREPARE YOUR SESSION
Next, we’ll schedule a call in which we will make a game plan for your session. We’ll arrange a time and date for the session and speak about locations, how to prepare yourself and your animal and what you may choose to do with your images afterward.
THE PHOTO SESSION
This is the fun part! The part where the magic happens! Leave all of your worries and expectations at the door and just enjoy the experience. Your animal’s only job is to be his- or herself and have fun. I will take care of the rest!
After your session, I upload and back up your images. Once that is done, I will select the best images from the session and go through each image individually to make any fine adjustments, i.e. cropping, straightening, colour correcting and polishing until they’re perfect.
THE BIG REVEAL
Fall in love with your animal all over again! Approx. 2 weeks after your session, I will send you a link to your very own password protected online gallery. Giving you the opportunity to view your images for the first time and enabling you to choose your favourites from the session.
PRIVATE ORDERING APPOINTMENT
This is where you decide which images you would like to show off in your home! I’ll show you my beautiful product samples and walk you through the options. Having your ordering appointment at your home gives you the advantage to see what a certain style and size would look like on your wall.
DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS
Count on quality! All of my suppliers are UK-based and handcraft your products to the highest possible standard. Amazing quality every time. I will deliver your order to your doorstep. All you have to do yourself is to hang it on the wall, sit back and enjoy your gorgeous new artwork.

LIGHT UP YOOR HOME!
I know how busy life can get and how hard it is to find time to print your photos and to get them on your walls. Wall art is the finishing touch in any home.
Why settle for less, when you could celebrate your four-legged family member with stunning wall art?!
Whether you decide on one single, breathtaking piece or a multi-image wall gallery, it’s sure to make a joyful statement.
Limited wall space? You can also choose a beautiful coffee-table album or image boxes that will showcase your images for decades to come.
Best of all, you get the matching digital file for every printed product you order completely free of charge.
Additional digital files are of course also available and many clients choose to add them to their order. But my primary focus is creating tangible, beautiful artwork that will bring you joy for years to come – no scrolling required.
