How does it all work?

“Dogs make your laugh a little louder, your smile a little brighter,
and your life a little better." 

"Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen at night and stealing Oreo cookies."
- Diane Arbus

When you book a session with me, it's not only about taking photographs. I strive to give you the whole 'Lifestyle Phodographer Experience' with your beloved pooch! Your session will be relaxed and fun, so you can expect lots of giggles, hugs, snuggles, and treats. We’ll run, jump and play and just BE. These real lifestyle moments is what makes your story and my art come to life.
I don't just sell a photo session with a few digital photos. I offer a high-quality, customised service, and my goal is to help you create stunning, tangible artwork that you will treasure for ever, whether that’s a larger than life portrait hanging in your living room, or a carefully designed album for your coffee table.
Prices are based on purchasing physical products - wall art, photo albums or prints. When buying products, you also get the same digital images complimentary. Think of it as a two-in-one offer, you receive products AND digital photos instead of just digital photos - for the same price.
But most importantly, you get to see your art displayed everyday, to remind you of the special little soul that belongs to you.

Scroll down to see what to expect from your TLP Experience. I can’t wait to meet you and your pup(s).

To book your session, just give me a call or drop me an email. We’ll have a ‘getting to know you’ chat, and I’ll ask a lot of questions about your dog(s). Age, breed, who do they love, if they are a rescue, and who is coming to the shoot, etc.

I’ll get a feel for the artwork you’d love and I’ll take the booking fee over the phone.
We’ll arrange a time and date, as well as a location where your dog will feel happiest. This is a good opportunity to find out all about you and your fur baby and what it is you are after. We’ll also chat about the best ways to display your images after the session, and how to get the most out of your TLP experience.

step 2

Sessions are all about relaxing and having fun, capturing your dog in their element. I’ll spend some time getting them familiar with me and my camera, and then we’ll get started. Just think of it as a walk with a difference – and plenty of treats and loving cuddles.
We take of breaks in between shots because we ask a lot of the dogs and it can become confusing for them. So if we stop and start its all just a game.
Sessions usually last 60-90 minutes but I will typically shoot until I am comfortable I have enough images.
At the end of the session I will confirm the day and time of your reveal and ordering appointment and I will go over my product packages so you can start getting excited about the end result!

step 3

View your professionally edited images for the first time from my cozy little home studio.
We’ll sit down in the lounge area to watch a slideshow accompanied by music of the fully edited images from your photo session. 
Warning- you might cry happy tears at this point. Don’t worry I have tissues at the ready!
This consultation is our opportunity to rework your imagery into finished artwork customised to suit your home, taste and budget.
At this appointment all chosen artwork is to be paid for either in full or by Payright interest free payment plan.
You will also choose your beautiful complimentary 5x7 matted print.
Then all that’s left to do is sit back, relax and await the arrival of your beautiful finished artwork within 4-6 weeks from placing your order.
