Capturing the beautiful bond between you and your four-legged best friend
with a Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session
Wish you could show how much your dog means to you, as your best and most loyal friend and companion?
Now you can capture all the fun, adventures and the great times you share together as best friends for life, with a Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session.
You have so many amazing adventures you share with your dog - from exploring new places and exciting walks, fun days at the beach or just chilling together in the great outdoors.
You'd love to be able to capture some really special memories of all the great times you spend together, but your dog would much rather be having fun than sit and pose, and even when you try to grab a selfie, he won't look at the camera or moves just when you try to take the shot. All you have are a smattering of blurry iPhone images where he's looked away just as you pressed the button, leaving an out-of-focus mess.
Perhaps you just think there's no way he'll ever pose with you to get the perfect image of you both together, so you just make do with what you can get, even though you wish more than anything you could capture that one image to show he means the world to you.
It doesn't have to be that way.
You can have those precious memories of the amazing times you spend together to keep strong and close to your heart, whether that's the fun and adventure of walks in the woodlands or just chilling out and watching the world go by.
With an experienced dog photographer on hand with skills and techniques learned from years of photographing dogs and their humans, the Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session gives you the expert assistance to capture those beautiful memories you want to cherish for all time and will make your heart leap with joy.
There's no need to worry about trying to get your dog to pose with you - a specialist dog photographer will know exactly how to capture natural moments of you both together looking relaxed and having fun.
Enjoy this celebration of the everyday adventures you share, with the knowledge that it's not about taking the perfect shot, but about capturing the moment that perfectly sums up the special love and perfect bond between you and your dog.
The Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session is specially designed to capture the amazing times you share with your four-legged best friend and illustrate the beautiful bond of friendship and love that's shared between you. Taking place on set dates throughout the year and at carefully selected locations to offer the best opportunities for capturing your special memories, your shoot comprises:

Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session
The Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session is designed to capture the fun and adventures you share with your four-legged best friend and celebrate your special bond together. Here's how it works:
A Warm Welcome
When you book your Me & My Dog 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 Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session includes your photo shoot which takes place at a specific outdoor location on set dates throughout the year.
Your photo shoot is an individual experience lasting about an hour and designed to capture the moments that make the bond you share with your dog special, from the fun, crazy adventures to the quiet moments sitting together and watching the world go by.
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 about the ways you and your dog love to spend time together, to let me know if there are any poses or characteristics 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 one of my carefully selected locations, chosen for the best opportunities to capture your favourite moments with your four-legged best friend, and are available on selected dates during the year.
Your photo shoot is a relaxed experience with an hour spent wandering around our location and capturing the moments that will mean the most to you, with a mix of lightly posed portraits and more natural scenes as you spend time together, doing the things you'd normally do.
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 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.

The Me & My Dog Limited Edition Session booking fee is £99 or 2 instalments of £49.50
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.
Limited Edition Sessions are time limited as I normally have several bookings on the same day. For Me & My Dog Sessions, the sessions last about an hour.
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.
The online gallery will be open for a period of 7 days, during which time you will be able to select your included images via a simple online ordering system, with the option to add on any additional artwork, products or Artwork Packages.
All the images in your gallery will be kept indefinitely, and your gallery can be reactivated for a £25 fee. If you place an additional product order following reactivation, this fee will be deducted from your invoice
It normally takes 3-4 weeks from when your order is 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 FRANK
Sandie is a patient, kind and friendly photographer, understanding of dogs' needs. The whole experience was lovely and I liked being able to see the images via Zoom so we didn't have to travel back.
The photographs were beautiful and the Show Box was absolutely stunning. Hope to have some more photos done in future!
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
