Capturing your dog's true personality in stunning & emotive photography

We believe that every dog lover deserves incredible memories of their dog being themselves

MIL Pet Photography Experience

Our clients have told us that we have provided them a complete experience for them and their dog.  It's not a short window of photo shots and rushed time slot - it starts weeks ahead of the day itself, and continues beyond - this is a MIL Pet Photography Experience.  So, what can you expect ?

A stress-free and fun experience with no time constraints

With a gentle approach, in an unhurried environment we will capture the loving relationship between you and your pet, creating images to treasure forever.

What we strive to do is capture your pet in their natural environment, in familiar surroundings where they’re relaxed and can be themselves, where their essence, spirit and character shine through.

Animals are best photographed within a natural environment, or at least one they are familiar with. We have the patience and ability to bring out the personality of each pet in heartwarming and often humorous portraits, capturing the spirit of your wonderful animal.

Getting to know you and your dog before the day

We like to understand the character of your pet and to get to know that ahead of the session.

We invest time in understanding you and your pet.

We provide you a series of examples and ideas of our work, to help us better understand what you like, how active your pet may or may not be, and potentially how we can capture similar images during our time together.  

All of our clients love this build up to the day itself, and it really helps us better understand you and your dog.

Our time together  

It is critical for all that we create a stress-free, fun experience for our clients and their pets.

We only take one booking a day so that there are no time constraints.

Most of our clients like us to start in the garden, and then we all go for walkies together. We can drive somewhere local to you, or just walk from your house - our time is your time, and whilst we can normally capture most images inside two hours, we will work at the comfortable pace of your pet, and not a strict timetable or schedule.

Photographing pets who are genuinely loved and honoured by their families fills our heart with great joy.

The week after the session

After the shoot, we have so much fun reviewing the hundreds of images that we will have then to prepare them and produce slideshow of the very best images from your dog's session.

Most of our clients like to have a sneak preview, and so with your agreement, we will share an image or two on social media.  It's a great way to get a quick view of one of our favourites from the day, and of course, you can share with your friends and family if you wish.

Your Viewing and Ordering session - "The Great Reveal"

Normally within two weeks, we get together for a fun session - the great reveal of the very best images from the day.  We start with a slide show seeing your dog's true personality, just being themselves.  

Over a drink, we remember the fun of the day.  During this session, we will go through all the wall art options available and also the amazing handcrafted albums that most clients say they probably wouldn't have wanted before the day, but once they see them, they all want one!  Wall art can be a finishing touch in any home, particularly when it is your loved furry companion on an amazing piece of art!

We are completely transparent on pricing, with most details on our website - there are never any hidden surprises and there's absolutely no obligation to buy anything.  

Four weeks later

We aim to bring a smile to every pet owner's face when they see their beloved family member captured in a stunning portrait. When we share our life with animals, we truly understand that they have the capacity for unconditional love, that is otherwise only between a human and its offspring.

Within four weeks, we receive from our Italian craftsmen our keepsake album.  We also receive any 100+ year archival pro mount frames handcrafted in England that you may have ordered.  

We prepare these final products for you, and pride ourselves on delivering yet another MIL Pet Photography Experience for a completely satisfied client.  

We believe that every dog lover deserves permanent memories of their dog being themselves, and love achieving this, every time!
