The Muddy Paws Adventure
The Muddy Paws Adventure includes three photo shoots spread over a couple of days, each taking place at a different location to capture all the crazy, madcap adventures you share with your four-legged best friend. Here's how it works:
A Warm Welcome
When you book your Muddy Paws Adventures, 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 Muddy Paws Adventure is the ultimate photo shoot experience, with three sessions capturing your dog's best life and all the amazing adventures you share together as best friends.
Each photo shoot can be personalised to reflect the special times you share, from wandering through parks and woodlands to enjoying an urban adventure, and will be tailored to your dog's individual character and unique personality to illustrate those precious moments you want to treasure forever
Your Pre-Shoot Chat
Before your photo shoot, we'll have an informal chat to 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 and the amazing times you share together, to let me know if there are any specific shots 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 have a great time at your photo experience.
We also discuss the location for your photo shoot and how everything will work on the day to ensure we capture the memories that will mean the most and immortalise all the adventures you share with your dog.
On The Day
The Muddy Paws Adventure is a fully tailored experience designed to capture the best adventures you share with your dog and show his quirky, madcap character - truly representing your best friend and beloved companion.
Your three photo shoots can take place in a selection of Outdoor Locations for stunning natural & architectural settings as well as an At Home Studio Style session if you'd also like to include some beautiful studio portraits.
I'll help you select the best locations to show all the amazing adventures you share with your dog - from wandering through woodlands to splashing in the river, urban adventures in your own town or city, or those joyful family times you spend with your best friend.
Each session will have a different focus and theme to truly capture a collection of images that represents your dog's best life and all the incredible adventures he experiences in the life he shares with you.
Ensuring your dog or puppy is comfortable is key to capturing the moments that will make your heart leap with joy, so we make sure he'll have time to relax and figure out what's going on before we encourage him to pose. There's no pressure and no time limit, so if it takes him a little longer to figure things out, that's absolutely fine.
Choosing your favourites
Your Big Reveal Viewing & Ordering Session is where you'll see your images for the very first time and takes place roughly 2 weeks after your photo shoot.
This is a personal service to guide you through the image selection process using special software, stop you feeling overwhelmed by all the different choices and ensure you feel happy and confident with the images you take home.
We begin with a short slideshow showcasing your dog'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 and show all the brilliant adventures you share together.
Displaying your Artwork
Your photo shoot includes a beautiful Deluxe Memory Album featuring up to 35 images so that you can treasure all those crazy adventures you share, as well as social media sized digital copies of all the images in your album so that you can share your dog's best moments with your friends.
At your Viewing, we'll spend time selecting your favourite images for your Memory Album, so that you know all the precious moments that mean the most to you are included. You'll receive an album proof 1-2 weeks after the Viewing for your approval before your album is ordered, to make sure everything is just how you want it to be.
We can talk through how different Wall Art and other products would work in the space you have available, with samples on hand so that you can test them out and see how they look and feel.
At the end of your Viewing & Ordering session, you'll have absolute confidence that you've chosen the best way to display your favourite adventures in your home.
But there's no need to feel pressured or obliged to order any additional artwork - every image I show you during your Viewing & Ordering Session is kept indefinitely, so you can always add to your collection at a later date, with prices guaranteed for 12 months.

The length of your photo shoot will depend on a number of factors, including whether it's a Studio Style or location shoot, and things like the age of your dog and how they get on with being in front of the camera.
As a general rule of thumb, I normally advise you to allow a couple of hours per photo shoot, including any set up time.

What my clients say
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!
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 FLINT
Thinking of having photos of your dog taken, then yes we definitely recommend Sandie Powner Photography.
Our 1 year old can be rather playful, so we weren't really sure how he would behave at the shoot, but there was no need to worry, Sandie was very welcoming and let Flint take some time to settle in, even letting him have a little sniff of the camera and then he soon settled into the session, which was all taken at his pace. No stressful moments at all. We got some great photos from the session, so we'd definitely recommend.
