Pet Portrait Photography

Our pet portraits service comes to you in your own home or favourite location.  Being in your own space will make you and your pet feel much more comfortable than in a commercial studio.  Benefits of coming to you include:

  • you can take a pet portrait interacting with you and your family in your own home or favourite location
  • you’ll have access to your own backyard and facilities
  • you’ll have your own pet toys, bedding, and objects of interest on hand to use as props during the shoot
  • if you have very young children or babies, you’ll have access to your own nappy change and cleanup facilities
  • you can grab a snack or drink from your own kitchen for you and your pet
  • and most of all, your pet will feel more comfortable and at home, and that translates to better, more natural and representative pet portraits

Studio backgrounds

If you would like studio style pet portraits, we set up a mobile studio using portable backdrops and state of the art wireless gear right in your own home.  Benefits of studio backgrounds include:

  • more precise control of lighting, which means we can make you and your pet look their absolute best
  • a less cluttered background, which can have benefits when mounting large prints on a wall
  • if you don’t want the location of the shoot to be seen, the backdrop will completely hide it
  • clean backgrounds are more versatile for creative design work on your pet portraits

Natural backgrounds

You can also feature your own home, garden or favourite location in the pet portraits.  In a standard 2 hour shoot, we can move around between various places and settings:

  • make memories of your home a feature of your photo set
  • add greater narrative to the photo set by showing how your pet interacts with the family
  • add interest and beauty to the shots by combining interior, architecture and/or landscape photography with your pet portraits
