Your Dog Photo Shoot

Your session is as unique as your pet

Your dog photo shoot is tailored to you and the connection you have with your beloved four legged friend. We choose a meaningful location and have a minimum of two hours to capture your pet enjoying the great outdoors.

The shoot itself is a relaxing and stress free experience. Most of my customers describe it as a fun walk in the woods with a friend and her camera. It is always a good idea to bring plenty of treats, be it high value food like cheese for dogs or Polo’s for horses. If your pet isn’t food motivated then a favourite toy will work just as well.

As we are working outside we need to me mindful of the weather conditions. I keep an eye on the forecast up until the day of your shoot. If the weather isn’t suitable we will simply rearrange for another day.

Sensible clothing and footwear are advisable to avoid slips or injury and a collar/head collar and lead are essential to keep your pets under control as and when necessary.

The shoot is and should be a fun experience for everyone. If you are in anyway apprehensive about any aspects of your shoot please do give me a call.

I can’t recommend Mandy highly enough, she is a fantastic photographer and was so great with our dogs. Having not done a studio shoot with the dogs before I wasn’t sure how they would be but Mandy made sure they loved the entire experience. From desensitising them to the lights and noises in the studio to getting the perfect poses with props and furniture she was brilliant. Will certainly be back in the future and have recommended her to all my friends with Pets!

Mandy has to be one of the most talented photographers i know! She is able to capture all my dogs beautifully and really knows how to show their individual personalities. Every single photo just takes my breath away!

I couldn’t recommend Mandy any more, she is truly amazing. Mandy spent a lot of time making sure my dogs were comfortable in the studio and desensitised to the lighting and noises before we even started, and that was after all the time we spent drying them off! She was professional throughout but so friendly and welcoming at the same time. The pictures are just perfect and ones I will treasure for life, I will be recommending her to every equine and dog person I know and cannot wait to have more photos done! 10,000/10 star rating!

What an absolutely delightful way to spend an afternoon. Walking in the woods with my dog and the immensely talented Mandy. Not only is she an amazing photographer, but a genuinely lovely person. We had so much fun creating beautiful photographic art.

We booked Mandy for a mini photoshoot. 3 dogs (incl a puppy & a lunatic Sprocker). TBH was panicking about how well they would pose/behave, but we had a lovely morning walking through the bluebells & along river at Hembury Woods with Mandy clicking away and with us encouraging the furbies. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves & best of all we absolutely adore the finished pictures!! Mandy did an awesome job & we would & do happily recommend her to anyone who would like a beautiful keepsake/memory of their much loved pets - thank you so much Mandy.

Highly recommend The Darkroom . We booked the photoshoot as I wanted one or two nice photos with hope to have one hanging on the wall in my lounge. I was slightly apprehensive as I didn’t know what to expect as I would describe my dog as a “free spirit” and not one that you could pose for a shot! So, it went like this …. We went for a normal lovely dog walk, my dog done her usual running around like a lunatic, got dirty, done some hunting and swimming, we were joined by the photographer who was super friendly with a absolute passion for dogs. I am still in shock about how amazing the photos turned out. A normal dog walk with an end result of photos that look like they should be in high end magazine. So beautiful - I’m still in shock !

Loved our shoot, Mandy is amazing and defo got the best out of my fur babies. My only regret is not knowing about her before I lost my Alfie 18 months ago, as I know Mandy could have left me with precious pictures that I would have had forever. Would highly recommend her, she is not only fabulous at what she does but really puts you at ease and loves all fur babies.

Do I get all of the digitals?

Digitals are not included for outdoor photo shoot sessions but can be purchased separately if desired. In the studio however, each package includes a number of high resolution digitals each printable to 8×10″.

Do you only photograph pets?

I am a pet photographer so I predominantly photograph animals but I do make exception for those that would like to be photographed with their furry best friend. Whether that is a horse and rider, or a special bond between a child and their dog I am always happy to capture those special connections.

My pet is elderly or terminally sick can you fit us in?

I will always do my best to make room in my schedule for an elderly or terminally ill pet. I can usually book you in on short notice and will make sure the location and pace of the shoot is suitable. The pace will be determined by how your pet is feeling on the day. I will always allow plenty of time and keep the session fun to get the most out of your dog or horse.

I have a reactive dog can I still have a photoshoot?

Of course. We can either select a public area that is very quiet or work on private property to ensure we are not disturbed. Leads and collars can be removed in post production so there is never any fear that your dog may be out of control. If you have a reactive or nervous dog, just let me know and can come up with a plan that will ensure everyone is safe, happy and confident.

My dog won't pose or look at the camera

This is what I hear the most and the truth is, they always do. Dogs are eager to please and eager for treats best food or a toy. That accompanied with a strange lady with a massive lens, lying on the floor making silly noises, we have a recipe for success. The photoshoot is the fun bit for both us humans and the dogs too. You will probably find that your dog finds places to pose long after the shoot has been completed.

What will I need to bring?

A collar and lead, or head collar and lead rope are essential on any photoshoot to maintain control of your pet in public areas, where necessary. Sensible footwear and clothing are advised to help prevent slips or injury.

Treats in the form of food or a favourite toy are the perfect bribery for performance. Horses are generally happy to stand elegantly for polos and dogs a ball or high value treat are all that’s required.

Can I share my shoot with someone else?

Of course you can share your shoot with someone else. Be aware that some shoot packages only come with one free print though so you might need to fight over who gets the print.

What if the shoot doesn't go to plan?

There are a number of reasons a shoot might not go to plan. The most common is the weather. I always keep an eye on the forecast and keep you uptown date up until the day of the shoot but sometimes the Met Office just get it wrong. If anything causes the shoot to be disrupted we will just re-arrange for another day.
