In July each year the stunning lavender fields of the Cotswolds burst forth in a riot of glorious colour, creating a stunning seasonal setting that provides the perfect backdrop for capturing beautiful portraits of your four-legged best friend.
You want to capture those stunning photos in the lavender fields like you've seen of other dogs, but it's not easy to get him to pose, and he always seems to move just at the moment you press the button. All you have are a mass of blurry iPhone images as you’ve tried and failed to capture the perfect image of him in such beautiful surroundings.

Lavender Fields Limited Edition Session
The Lavender Fields Limited Edition Session is designed to capture the precious moments you share with your dog that you want to keep strong and close to your heart, set against the stunning lavender field and wildflower meadows of the Cotswolds. Here's how it works:
A Warm Welcome
When you book your Lavender Fields 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 Lavender Fields Limited Edition Session includes your photo shoot which takes place at the beautiful Cotswold Lavender Fields in July
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 special moments and the love, joy and adventures you'll want to cherish forever.
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 talk about 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 the stunning Cotswold Lavender fields, chosen for the stunning riot of colour which create a beautiful backdrop to capture those precious memories with your four-legged best friend, and are available on selected dates in July each year
Your photo shoot is a relaxed experience lasting about 45 minutes, which we spend on location in the lavender fields. We capture the adorable personality and unique character of your dog, focusing on lightly posed portraits against the beautiful purples of the lavender and yellows of the wildflower meadow which is also available at our location. Entry to the lavender fields is included for one handler per dog
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 Flexible session on a date of your choice 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

Your photo shoot includes a beautifully created 16-inch Premium Mounted Print to take home, as well as three low resolution digital files for social media so that you can share your dog's best moments with your friends. 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 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.

That's up to you - if you're happy with your 16 inch Premium Mounted Print and 3 low resolution digital files for social media per photo shoot, you don't need to pay a penny more than the booking fee.
However, if you'd like additional prints, wall art, an album or additional digital files, these are all sold separately in addition to your booking fee. You'll get to see some product samples at your photo shoot with online ordering available through your gallery, or if you already know what you want, why not check out the Artwork Packages now and save 10% when you pre-order?
Any additional orders can either be paid in full on receipt of your invoice, or via an instalment plan.
Any additional people will also have to pay the entry fee for the lavender fields (2021 costs - £7 adults, £3 5-15 years old)
Limited Edition Sessions are time limited as I normally have several bookings on the same day. For Lavender Fields Sessions, the sessions last about 45 minutes.
The Artwork Consultation is something I offer as part of the Bespoke Experience Packages, and is a personalised service designed to help to choose your favourite images and discover the best way to display them in your home.
While not included as part of the Limited Edition Sessions, you can choose to book an Artwork Consultation for a fixed fee of £25. If you go on to place an additional product order, this £25 will be deducted from your invoice.
Your personal online gallery will be uploaded 1-2 weeks after your photo shoot and you'll be sent the login details via email.

It normally takes 3-4 weeks from your order being placed for your artwork to be delivered to me for checking (albums may take longer).
If you're paying via instalments, artwork orders are delivered once the instalment plan has been completed. If you've paid in full on receipt of invoice, your order will be delivered as soon as I've checked everything is correct.
If your photo shoot is due to take place outdoors, there's always a chance it could be affected by the weather!
If we've got torrential rain, soaring temperatures or freezing conditions that mean it's not suitable for your photo shoot to take place, we can simply reschedule for a new date at no extra cost.
There absolutely is! I guarantee that you'll LOVE your images - and if for any reason you don't, I'll give you a complimentary reshoot AND I'll upgrade your included print to a 16-inch Premium Frame absolutely free!
In addition, Limited Edition Sessions have an additional guarantee due to the time limit which is in place. If your dog is unable to settle to the point that I can not capture any photos of them, I'll credit your booking fee towards a Flexible session (on a date of your choice) to give them the additional time they need to relax.
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.
Additional Artwork orders are considered bespoke and therefore excluded from any right of cancellation once paid for.
If after booking, you need to reschedule your photo shoot for any reason, just let me know and I'll be happy to transfer you to a new Limited Edition Session date which we'll mutually agree.
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 (booking fees and product orders) is donated to my chosen charity.
For 2022, I'm supporting Dogs for Autism, which is an excellent charity providing Autism Assistance dogs for autistic people of any age, anywhere in the UK.
You can find out more about my chosen charity and how the donations are made on the Limited Edition Session page

What my clients say
HOOMUM TO BEETHOVEN
I have always wanted a photo of Beethoven captured the way I've always wanted but couldn't.
I am over the moon with the whole experience - you are very much a people person and interacted well with both dog and child
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 POPPIE
I was a bit hesitant as Poppie is very timid around people she doesn't know. I shouldn't have worries, Sandie had Poppie eating out of her hand within minutes of meeting her.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, I certainly would recommend Sandie to everyone with furbabies. Thank you again!
