2020 East Mids Pet Photographer of the Year

All about the

Photography sessions.

You have the choice of either a Fine Art Studio Photography Session or Fine Art Lifestyle Location Photography Session. Whether you prefer the simplicity of the studio or the realism of the outdoors, the decision is completely yours. 

The main aim of all our photoshoots is for you to have fun and to feel relaxed in front of the camera; I understand how hard it is being photographed, so time is taken to make you feel at ease whilst capturing some stunning images of you and your best friend!

Each session is £145 which includes a £100 product credit. That means that at the viewing session, you already have £100 to put towards your photographs!

View the process and a series of frequently asked questions below. If you have any questions at all or would like a price list to view, please do not hesitate to contact me today. 

Step 1

Choose Your Session Type

Whether you’d rather enjoy stunning studio images of your dog or horse, or feel that the great outdoors is the right place for your photo shoot, it’s completely up to you. Once you’ve decided, we’ll organise a date and time to meet.

Step 2

Enjoy the Session!

After a meet and greet period to ensure everyone is happy and relaxed, we’ll start the photoshoot. While on the shoot I will get to know you all, discover the bond you have with your animals and I’ll also capture many beautiful images too!

Step 3

View the results
After the session concludes, the work doesn’t end for me. I’ll then commence the preparation of a final selection of images from the session. We’ll meet once more so that you can view the final images on our large colour-calibrated screens.

Frequently asked questions:

Who selects the location for the session?

I have several favourite locations that I can suggest, however if you have a location in mind where you would like your session to take place, we can discuss the different options to make sure you get the best from you session.

How long does the session last?

Our sessions usually last 1-2 hours, however we will take the shoot at your animal’s pace, so they don’t feel rushed at any point. The key is to keep it relaxed and enjoyable.

What happens if it rains?

I keep a number of backup dates open in case of bad weather, and there’s no fee to reschedule to a new date if it’s raining. The British weather can be unpredictable, so we can reschedule up to the night before.

Can I bring more than one animal to the session?

Of course you can! Just let me know in advance so I can plan your shoot!

My pet is nervous / aggressive / cannot be loose. Can I have a photoshoot?

Yes definitely. Informing us before hand is essential in this case, as we will choose a location that is suitable. Extra time can be taken to help settle them and we can plan the shoot around them. Helping your pet be happy and settled will produce the best results. The leads and collars can be edited after the shoot before you see the images.

WHAT IS A VIEWING SESSION?

A viewing session can be the most emotional part of the experience. It’s a time to relax with a cup of tea and biscuits and enjoy seeing your images for the first time on a large screen. It also gives you the opportunity to see the products in the flesh and chose the ones that are right for you.

For those clients that are further afield, I endeavour to do my best to do our viewing session with you (e.g. via zoom), but where this isn’t possible, you will receive an online gallery for you to view your photographs.

HOW LONG DOES THE VIEWING SESSION LAST?

Typically, a viewing session lasts 1-1.5 hrs.

HOW MUCH DO PEOPLE USUALLY SPEND ON THEIR PHOTOGRAPHS?

Most of my clients invest £400 – £600 in creating their perfect pieces of artwork.

WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER? IS THERE JUST PRINTS?

We offer a wide range of products from prints and digital images to stunning wall images. There’s something to suit everyone and we can go through these options at your viewing session.

“Our photoshoot was so much fun and so relaxed it felt more like a walk with a friend!

Our photographs taken by Johanna are stunning and capture the essence of my relationship between my dog and I effortlessly! We now have our own pieces of art on our walls that we treasure.”

Thank you so much for the whole experience! I did wonder what you would be able to get with my three as they often look a bit miserable with posed shots, but it was so relaxed and the dogs all seemed to enjoy themselves…a bit too much in Kepler’s case…. We’re delighted with the results – you have definitely captured their individual characters.

“I have used Jo twice now, each time Jo has always built a rapport with Dollie and she has been able to capture some beautiful photos.

Jo has this amazing gift to be able to bond with an animal as I found out when I took Dollie to be photographed. If you would like a brilliant photographer who captures the photos you love in the possible way; then I definitely recommend Jo 100% and now would not let anyone else photograph Dollie.”

– Leah & Dollie
