Fesitve Hound Limited Edition Session
The Festive Hound Limited Edition Session is designed to capture the magic of Christmas in a festive themed photo shoot taking place on a real Christmas Tree Farm. Here's how it works:
A Warm Welcome
When you book your Festive Hound Limited Edition Session, you'll receive a welcome email with a link to my client portal. Here you'll find your contract and a questionnaire about your dog to complete so that I can find out all about you both!
In a few days. you'll receive your Welcome Pack through the post, which includes a Session Guide with all the information you need to prepare for your photo shoot, Product Guide with details of your artwork options, and current price list, as well as a little treat for you and your dog!
The Festive Hound Limited Edition Session includes your photo shoot which takes place at a real life Christmas Tree Farm on selected dates in November
Your photo shoot is an individual experience lasting about 45 minutes, tailored to your dog's individual character and unique personality, and designed to capture those festive moments and the spirit of Christmas you'll want to share with your family and friends
Your Pre-Shoot Questionnaire
After you book, I'll ask you to complete a quick questionnaire to find out more about you and help set your mind at ease from all the worries you have about what will happen on the day.
It's an opportunity to find out the things you love about your dog's unique personality, to let me know if there are any specific characteristics or shots you'd like to capture, and raise any concerns you have, so you feel confident you and your dog will be happy and comfortable and enjoy your photo experience.
On The Day
Your Limited Edition Session will take place at a real life Christmas Tree Farm, chosen for the best opportunities to capture those Christmassy moments with your four-legged best friend, and are available on selected dates during November.
Your photo shoot is a relaxed experience with around 45 minutes spent wandering around our location and capturing the moments that show your dog's unique character & personality, with a mix of festive scenes and more natural shots as we explore our seasonally themed location.
Ensuring your dog is relaxed is key to capturing the moments that will make your heart leap with joy, and he'll have time to relax and figure out what's going on before we encourage him to pose.
Although this session is time limited, if your dog won't settle to the point that I can't get any photos of him, I'll credit your booking fee towards a full Pawfect Moments Experience so that we can give him the time he needs to relax and ensure we capture those beautiful portraits that you'll want to cherish forever
At the end of your session you'll have the opportunity to view a selection of product and artwork samples so that you can see how they look and feel, and begin to imagine how they'll work in your home
Choosing your favourites
Your Personal Online Gallery is where you'll see your images for the very first time! You'll be sent the access details via email approximately 2 weeks after your photo shoot, and will be able to view your images at your leisure in the comfort of your own home.
Your photo shoot includes a beautifully created 16-inch Premium Mounted Print to take home, as well as three digital files printable to A5 size so that you can create your own Christmas Cards for the festive season. You'll be able to select these images via a simple online ordering system, as well as add on any additional products, wall art or Artwork Packages you may wish to purchase.
Your personal gallery will be open for a period of 7 days in which to place your order. But there's no need to feel pressured or obliged to order them all - every image I include in your gallery is kept indefinitely, so you can always add to your collection at a later date, with prices guaranteed for 12 months.
Choose an Artwork Consultation
If you'd like a little more guidance and support in choosing your artwork, why not book an Artwork Consultation? Taking place on a live Zoom Call with Sandie, we'll begin with a short slideshow showcasing your four-legged friend's best festive moments from their photo shoot (you may need tissues!)
Don't worry about remembering which ones you like at this stage, because we'll go through each image individually and help you create a shortlist of your favourites. There's no rush and we can take our time to compare different options and discuss how images complement each other to show your dog's adorable personality.
We can talk through how different Wall Art and other products will work in the space you have available and consider which images complement each other and will suit both your decor and your budget, with no pressure to buy more than you want to.
At the end of your Artwork Consultation, you'll have absolute confidence that you've chosen the best way to display your favourite memories in your home.
The Artwork Consultation is available for an additional fee of £25. If you go on to place an additional product or wall art order, this fee will be deducted from your invoice.

In addition, Limited Edition Sessions have an additional guarantee due to the time limit which is in place.

If you change your mind within 14 days of booking your photo shoot, you can cancel and receive a full refund. Thereafter a £50 cancellation charge will apply. This is provided that no part of your photo shoot has taken place.

There is no charge for the first rescheduling of any date, any subsequent reschedules may incur a £20 rebooking fee.
I am thrilled to be supporting some excellent and worthwhile charities through the Limited Edition Sessions, where 10% of all sales is donated to my chosen charity.
For 2021, I'm supporting Medical Detection Dogs, which is an excellent charity providing assistance dogs for certain medical conditions and training dogs to detect diseases such as cancer and Covid-19.

What my clients say
HOOMUM TO BUDDY
Sandie was fantastic during our photo shoot with our dog Buddy. She took time to find out about him and what I wanted to capture. On the day, Sandie let Buddy be Buddy! She suggested different settings and background to give us a range of shots and we were really pleased with the choice of pictures.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sandie. A brilliant experience with exceptional pictures
HOOMUM TO HONEY
I can't recommend Sandie enough. The shoot was so relaxed and Honey loved every second of it! The Zoom Viewing session was also so good and we got to see all of the photos and see which we wanted as the complimentary print, there was no rush to choose one, it was so relaxed. Our print arrived today and I am so pleased with it! Can't wait to put it up on the wall.
If you want some incredible unforgettable memories with your dog then I 100% recommend Sandie for a photo shoot!
HOOMUM TO Willis & Honey
Sandie was awesome to work with from the start. She was patient and my dogs adored her. The photographs she captured perfectly highlight my dogs' characters. It will be something to treasure forever.
She's a dog person too, not "just" a photographer!
