Pet photography

My portrait work covers all kinds of family members, both humans and other species…

As a portrait photographer with a special interest in family photography, I realise that for some people no family group shot would be complete without their beloved pet (or pets) being present.

I love animals of all kinds (especially dogs) and enjoy the challenge of engaging with them to get the best shot, so naturally this has lead to clients asking me to capture images of their pets, either in their home, on location, or in my studio in Orpington.

It’s a privilege to be asked to do pet portraits, in much the same way that it’s an honour to be commissioned to take photographs of newborns. Clients trust me to capture the essence of their precious family members and form a bond very quickly with their pet so that he or she is comfortable and relaxed enough to allow me to create the best images possible. Professional pet photography makes a great gift idea – why not take a look at my pet portfolio here to see some examples of my work.

The quality of the photos is amazing, but what made the difference was the emotional connection Harriet made with all of us on the day. The care and attention she took to not only capture the images, but the way she made sure everyone had a good time was just superb.
