The Pawfect Moments Experience
The Pawfect Moments Experience includes your choice of an At Home Studio Style or and Outdoor Location photo shoot session to capture the love, joy and adventures you share with your four-legged best friend. Here's how it works:
A Warm Welcome
When you book your Pawfect Moments Experience, 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 Pawfect Moments Experience includes your choice of either an At Home Studio Style or an Outdoor Location photo shoot session, suitable for dogs and puppies of any age.
Your photo shoot is an individual experience, 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 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, 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.
We also discuss the location for your photo shoot and how everything will work on the day to ensure we capture the happy, joyful moments you want to treasure with your dog.
On The Day
Your photo shoot is a fully tailored experience designed to capture the moments that will mean the most to you and show the quirky, joyful character of your four-legged best friend.
The experience includes your choice of either an At Home Studio Style Session, which takes place in your home for beautiful studio portraits, or an Outdoor Location session for stunning natural settings (or if you'd like to include both, check out the Deluxe Experience here).
The At Home session gives you all the benefits of a studio session with the ease of taking place in your own home, so that your dog is relaxed and comfortable. Although great for any dog or puppy, this is particularly beneficial to older, less mobile, easily distracted or nervous dogs who may find travelling to another location unsettling
The Outdoor Location session is great for posed and unposed shots in natural surroundings - from spring flowers, to autumn reds & golds or crisp winter frost. It is ideal if your dog has plenty of energy, or for working dogs where you wish to capture them in an authentic setting.
Ensuring your dog or puppy is relaxed 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 star 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 unique character & personality.
Displaying your Artwork
Your photo shoot includes a beautifully created 16-inch Premium Mounted Print to take home, as well as five social media sized digital files so that you can share your dog's best moments with your friends.
We can talk through how different Wall Art and other products will 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 memories in your home.
But there's no need to feel pressured or obliged to order them all - 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 Pawfect Moments Experience booking fee is £150
That's up to you - if you're happy with your 16 inch Premium Mounted Print and 5 social media sized digital files, 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.

Any additional orders can either be paid in full on receipt of your invoice, or via an instalment plan.
Yes you absolutely can! Just head on over to find out about the Pawfect Moments Deluxe Experience, which includes two photo shoots - one Outdoor Location session and one At Home Studio Style session, which normally take place on separate days to ensure your dog is happy throughout.
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.
It normally takes 3-4 weeks from your Big Reveal Viewing & Ordering Session for your artwork to be delivered to me for checking.
If you're paying via instalments, artwork orders are delivered once the instalment plan has been completed. If you've had 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!
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 we'll agree a mutually suitable date for your photo shoot to take place.
There is no charge for the first rescheduling of any date, any subsequent reschedules may incur a £20 rebooking fee.

What my clients say
Hoomum to luna
Luna and I really enjoyed our experience with Sandie, who was friendly, professional and patient. We received fantastic pictures which I can display on my wall with pride.
I found the reveal very emotional seeing all those beautiful pictures of Luna – I wish I could have kept them all!”
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 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!
