with a Pawfect Puppy Three Shoot Package
Worried that your fleeting puppy days will pass by and fade into distant memories far too quickly?
Now you can keep those precious early days you share together strong and close to your heart long after your puppy has grown into your beautiful best friend for life, with a Pawfect Puppy Three Shoot Package.
When a new puppy arrives there is SO much you have to deal with – from toilet training to crate training and beginning to teach them the basic skills to stand them in good stead for life.
It’s all too easy for these slightly crazy, sleep-deprived early days with the newest member of your family to fly by in what seems like a matter of moments, and before you know it, puppy is already halfway to being full grown and all you have are a smattering of blurry, iPhone images as you’ve tried and failed to get puppy to pose.
Perhaps you just think you’ll wait until puppy is older and better behaved, even though there’s a lump of regret in your heart that you won’t have those gorgeously cute puppy moments to look back on and treasure.
You can have those precious memories of puppy’s very first days with you, the special moments that make you go “aww” and melt your heart when you look back and remember how small he once was.
With an experienced dog photographer on hand with skills and techniques learned from years of puppy portraits, the Pawfect Puppy Package 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 lose sleep about puppy peeing on the backdrops or chewing the props - a specialist dog photographer has seen it all before. Enjoy this celebration of those precious puppy days with the knowledge that even if those little accidents do happen, it won't detract from your crazy-happy experience of puppy's first few weeks with you.
And then, as puppy grows, you'll build a treasure trove of moments that evoke the laughter and joy of that special first year as, slowly but surely, he becomes your Pawfect companion who'll share the best adventures with you throughout your lives together.
The ideal option to capture those precious milestones of puppy’s first year, as he grows into a cherished member of your family, your Pawfect Puppy package includes three photo shoots which take place when puppy is approximately 10-16 weeks, 6 months and one year old. Each shoot comprises:
To set your mind at ease from all the worries you have, so you feel confident you and your dog will be happy and comfortable and enjoy your photo experience

I’m Sandie Powner, dog-crazy lady who loves nothing more than helping you capture the love, joy and adventures you share with your four-legged best friend.
As someone who’s had family dogs from a very young age, I know just how important they are as members of your family, and I want to make sure you have a way to keep those unique, precious moments close to your heart to cherish forever.
The Pawfect Puppy Package consists of three tailored photo shoot experiences to capture the special memories of Puppy's First Year as he grows into your beloved canine companion. Here's how it works:
When you book your Pawfect Puppy Package, 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 Puppy Package includes three photo shoots which take place when puppy is approximately 10-16 weeks, 6 months and one year old.
Each photo shoot is an individual experience, tailored to your puppy's character and development, and designed to capture those special moments you'll want to cherish forever. With a choice of At Home Studio Style, Outdoor Location and family oriented sessions, you can mix and match your photo shoots to create a stunning treasure trove celebrating puppy's first year as part of your family.
Before each 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.
As puppy grows, it's an opportunity to find out about how he's growing up and developing his personality, to let me know if there are any little 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.
We can also discuss the different locations you'd like to include in your photo shoot sessions to ensure you capture all the happy, joyful memories of Puppy's first year.
Each photo shoot is a fully tailored experience so we can capture the moments that will mean the most to you during Puppy's First Year, starting with the first session at 10-16 weeks.
I recommend the first session takes place at your home so that your puppy is somewhere safe and familiar, without the distraction of too many new smells, or the worry of being overwhelmed by other dogs and people in a public place.
It also means puppy can have breaks whenever he needs them, and even a snooze on the backdrop if he wants to!
Ensuring puppy is relaxed is key to capturing the moments that will make your heart leap with joy, and at each photo shoot 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, that's absolutely fine.
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 puppy'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 puppy's unique character & personality.
Each of your three photo shoots 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 puppy’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.
Artwork Packages are available at any time - but if you already know how you want to display your images, why not pre-order either a Luxury Show Box or an Artwork Package, and benefit from one of these added bonuses!

The Pawfect Puppy Package booking fee is £425
That's up to you - if you're happy with your 16 inch Premium Mounted Print and 5 social media sized digital files 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. We can discuss all the options at your Big Reveal Viewing & Ordering Session - 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.
Please note: the locations I suggest for your photo shoot are either free to use or I have an annual permit, but if you prefer a specific location, please be aware that any permit fees will be payable by you in addition to your booking fee.
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 puppy 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.
If you cancel after the first or second photo shoots of your package have taken place, a pro-rata cancellation charge will be applied and the remainder will be refunded.
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.
Simply select the time and date of your FIRST photo shoot below (10-16 weeks), click Book Me and follow the instructions to pay your booking fee. If you'd rather pay by instalments, click here to send a manual booking request.
Your package includes one 16 inch Premium Mounted Print and five social media sized digital files PER SHOOT. Additional wall art, albums, other products and digital files can be ordered separately

BOOK YOUR FIRST PRE-SHOOT CHAT
This normally takes place 1-2 weeks before each photo shoot and is an opportunity to go through your questionnaire and discuss any questions or concerns you may have
I've had the pleasure of Sandie photographing my dog as part of her puppy package. Beginning with a puppy shoot when my dog, Remus, was just 9 weeks old and most recently an 8 month outdoor shoot in our local woodlands. Every image has been stunning and really captured the character of my boy.
Sandie always ensures the dog is in charge and able to make decisions, waiting for him to get to know her and exploring the equipment, never forcing him to pose and having plenty of patience to wait for him to be ready and willing to engage with the shoot. We can't wait for our year old shoot to take place! I would highly recommend Sandie for all your photography needs.
