As we emerge from lockdown due to coronavirus I am mindful of the need for safety and reassurance. I have created two new packages for this time and suspended all inside shoots until further notice. A shoot can take place as long as we have access to an outside location and can maintain social distancing.
I'm committed to keeping these sessions as safe as possible for everyone involved so I will make sure that:
I’ll wear a mask at all times
I’ll have disposable gloves if I need to interact with your pet
I’ll keep social distancing practices and maintain 2 meters away from you at all times
I will carry antibacterial hand gel with me at all times
I will predominantly shoot with my longer lenses
My sessions will only be outside until further notice
Shoots will be limited to members of the same household only
I'm constantly monitoring government advice so these safety precautions will be updated as advice changes.
Your photoshoot will typically last between 1 - 2 hours during which I will spend time getting to know you and your pet! I will photograph them in your choice of location and work with them to get a range of posed and candid shots to ensure you get *that* special image.
Photoshoots will now be limited to members of the same household, which includes all furry and human members as long as this can be achieved safely.
Both the Walkies and In the Field packages cost £50 payable at time of booking. This includes a 5 image digital gallery and the option to upgrade to add prints, wall art and more.

My new Walkies session is designed for documenting your favourite lockdown activity, getting outside with your best pal! I'll accompany you on a 1-2 hour walk around the beautiful local countryside where we can exercise your dog and get some candid and posed photographs.
While we are out I will be on the lookout for the best natural settings to use, and get you to help me pose your pup to show of their best side. I'll also be looking out for your dog interacting with their settings naturally like in this image where Ralph stopped to smell the flowers!
This is an ideal session to get some pet and owner images, if you fancy getting in front of the camera too.
The whole experience should be relaxed and fun for both of you, and you will go home with some wonderful memories and photographs of your best friend.
*In order to minimise contact as much as possible, I am asking that dogs be kept on a lead as much as possible during these sessions. This will be edited out so it will not show up in your final images*
In the Field
My new In the Field package is designed with horses in mind. This session can take place in a private field where you have no other horses other than the ones you want photographed, in a private outside area, or I can accompany you on a slow hack on one of the local countryside bridleways.
This session will also last for 1-2 hours and a wide variety of shots will be possible. Don't worry if your field isn't looking it's best, you'll be surprised what we can acheive!
Styles of image may depend on the locations we have available to us. For example, if there is a shelter or a stable within the field I can attempt some black background portraits, which are some of my favourites as they can be really striking and classic
. Simple, yet stunning headshots like the above photo of Minstrel and full body shots also can work really nicely, and if your horse is used to a lunge reign then action shots can also be safely acheived.
Horse and rider photographs will also be availble in these sessions if you want to get in front of the camera as well! These can be ridden or in hand, whichever you prefer. The idea of these sessions is to capture you and your horse in the natural little moments between poses as well as some more classic portraits.
*Depending on the behaviour of the horse I may require them to be in a halter and lead rope for the session for safety purposes. I also advise having an extra person attend the shoot if possible to help with handling the horse. This must of course be someone from your household*
