Fun photo sessions at home or elsewhere to capture your creature's character

When your four- (or more) legged friend is firmly one of the family, why have them miss out on being captured in a fun way?  A PawTraits photo session takes place in short bursts to capture your 'true' pet - whatever their character or behaviour!

A PawTraits session can take place at home, in the garden, during a walk or wherever your pet is happiest so that we can capture their personality.  If your pet is stress-free, that shows through in your images; so it's important that they are relaxed and comfortable.  Photo sessions usually take approximately an hour but can take longer if necessary, working to your pet's agenda.

You may wish to have available a selection of favourite toys.  These can give your pet something to focus on which then maximises the chances of getting a selection of interesting and varied images for you to choose from.  It can also help in calming your pet.  Experience has shown that having an ample supply of treats on hand also helps the photo session go smoothly!

If there's something in particular that you would like photographing, such as a certain way that your pet sits or lays or even a trick they perform, let me know so that we can see whether we can capture that moment.

The old adage about working with children or animals definitely need not apply.  If you would like to have your children and yourselves involved, that can be accommodated too.  The human element in your images reinforces the idea of your pet most certainly being one of the family.

It's often been mentioned that, "They're not the best behaved."  There's really no need to worry.  A PawTraits photo session is all about capturing your pet just the way they are.  Whether they're boisterous or just like curling up in a corner to sleep, we'll work together to bring out their true character.

When I received the photos and pictures for my 50th birthday present, I was absolutely delighted with them. The pictures are so good, I have never seen better pictures anywhere in my life.
The album of our dogs that you did was beautiful, as was the photo frame. Every time I look at the pictures it brings a tear to my eye, as we love our dogs so very much. Your work on these pictures was quite simply outstanding and we would recommend your services to everyone. Anyone who has a much loved pet would love the services that you provide. A picture lasts a lifetime and we are so grateful for the work you did on our behalf.
Thank you so much.

Darren is very professional in his work. He shows great patience. We were made to feel very relaxed and unhurried. The shots are very natural - not posed and uncomfortable. We would recommend him to anyone.

Our photoshoot with Darren was fantastic. He has a really calm and professional manner and really put our dog, Winston, at ease. We thoroughly enjoyed the shoot and would highly recommend him to others. The photos are excellent quality - we can’t wait to put them up!
