A Day with Lottie
We had a brilliant family afternoon with Chris and Sue. Lottie and Hunter are sister and brother who were 18 months old at the time of the shoot.
Chris and Sue took time to get to know us and the dogs, and listened carefully to our ideas and thoughts. They were able to change the day and time of the shoot to take advantage of a few rare moments of dry sunshine in a week of torrential rain.
Despite being brother and sister Lottie and Hunter have different personalities, and Chris captured each of them perfectly. We started in the garden, then we all went for a walk where the dogs could run and play, and splash in the river. We also went into a wooded area so we had a wonderful variety of shots. The whole session was happy and relaxed, and Chris was even willing to lay on his back with Lottie towering over him to capture a shot I had in mind!!
The quality of the finished album and wall art was absolutely superb. The images were sharp and detailed as well as atmospheric, reflecting the true personality of each of the dogs.
I have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Sue if you want to capture your treasured pets’ images and have a quality reminder of a very happy day.

A Day with Rosie
My wife, daughter and I had a great day with Chris and Sue who joined us for Rosie’s usual walk around a local nature reserve. We were keen to capture Rosie in her known environment and to be relaxed given she is over 13 years old. Chris and Sue’s approach to the session was perfect by blending into Rosie’s world and not only captured some fantastic photos they also managed to capture her personality in each photo without any “performing”, which was something we were keen to avoid. The whole day far exceeded our expectations and with the photos presented in the beautiful album we will always now have something to cherish.

A Day with Pippa
When you were recommended to us, we stopped trying to take pictures of our dog Pippa on our phones and decided to get it done properly!
Before the session, MIL Pet Photography sent us examples and suggestions so that we could think about what sort of pictures we wanted to try and achieve during the session. Having the photos taken in her own surroundings meant that Pippa was comfortable and ‘herself’.
Chris and Sue are clearly both animal lovers and put us all at ease very quickly. It felt as though friends had dropped by - Pippa got lots of attention and a walk in her favourite spot – perfect! The experience they bring means Chris and Sue have some great ideas to capture wonderful and unusual poses.
Unbeknown to us, by the time they left they had captured well over 700 images! Even with a significantly reduced number to choose from it was extremely difficult, yet enjoyable, to decide! We narrowed it down to an album and reveal frame with two interchangeable magnetic prints.
Thank you both so much for a relaxed and enjoyable day. We are delighted with the range of images you captured and the permanent memories of Pippa you created for us to enjoy.

A Day with Harvey & Sassie
From the moment we met Chris and Sue we knew they were the ideal choice to capture the cherished moments we were hoping for. Harvey at 4 is young and energetic, Sassie at 11 less so but a great judge of character and she immediately fell at Chris' feet for a belly rub!
Prior to the shoot we had received some example images of pets in various poses and surroundings to help us determine the type of pictures we would prefer, which we found very useful. Given Harvey's playfulness we asked for more action based shots of him chasing his beloved tennis ball and he also took a keen interest in Sue's squeaky toy! For Sassie we decided on more of her posing in some of her favourite walking spots.
Having spent some time beforehand with both dogs Chris and Sue got a great feel for their individual personalities and were able to capture them both just being themselves without much direction or requests. As an added bonus Chris also got a selection of them both together strutting through the fields and chilling next to each other, fully capturing how much they love each other's company.
We were so impressed with all of the images that we couldn't decide as a family which ones to include in the album.....so ordered extra pages to make sure we got them all! But the greatest testimony we can provide is that there was one image which made Tiff cry immediately. The beauty of both of our cherished dogs captured so perfectly, it now adorns our living room wall in the largest size Millers Image Limited could provide and for which we have had nothing but compliments and adoration from anyone who sees it.
