Your pet is truly a magical part of your family with a personality all its own. Dogs are said to be man’s best friend and we would definitely agree with that! Brosko our Doodle is a massive part of our family and can often be seen down at the studio when we are not shooting.
From puppy to old trusty companion bring your pooch along to the photography studio for a solo photoshoot or as part of a whole family photography session. We specialise in capturing beautiful lasting memories of your family dog that you will be proud to hang on your walls and show off to your friends. After all who doesn’t love a cute dog photo?
Pop along with your dog to the studio for a visit before the actual photoshoot. You and your dog can get familiar with the studio and it will help improve your experience for you both on the day of your shoot. Your dog can have a good sniff around. Don’t worry if there is a little accident, your dog won’t be the first. We have everything necessary to cope with small accidents in the ‘pee’ department. It may help your dog if you both go for a short walk just before coming into the studio. We are blessed with being based in the beautiful Waterways of Ellesmere Port next to the National Waterways Museum so there is plenty of space for your dog to have a walk and a little pee, or more.
Every dog has its very own personality and we create an environment to help capture your dog’s unique characteristics. We make sure to not over excite your dog on the day of the photoshoot and we have plenty of treats to encourage cooperation. If your dog has any food allergies or intolerances please tell us prior to the photoshoot so we can make sure we have suitable treats. We make every effort to ensure your photoshoot is as relaxed and enjoyable as possible for everyone!
The Studio is in a beautiful setting near the Ellesmereport Boat Museum.
Simon greeted us at the door. Stella was a little shy at first but was given plenty of time in the waiting area to settle and get to know Simon before going into the Studio. Here she was curious and Simon created… Read more “Stella’s 14 weeks Puppy Photoshoot”
I can’t recommend Simon enough, especially for his portrait photography. With his patience and skill he managed to capture the gentleness, wisdom and maturity of our 13 year old black Labrador at his studio shoot. Sadly only weeks later we had to make the difficult decision to say goodbye to Bailey and now, thanks to… Read more “A stunning reminder”
I had my show dog who is a bedlington terrier photographed. Simon was professional and really welcoming and put my boy at ease from the word go! He got some fabulous images which we were made up with considering my dog can be difficult to capture his personality as his haircut can hide his eyes… Read more “Totally approachable and professional!”
Absolutely fantastic photo shoot. Simon was fabulous with Milo and really put him at easy with toys and treats.
Wow, what can I say the photos are amazing and so many people have asked where they were taken. Can not recommend Simon highly enough. We’ll be back and thank you once again.
I took my collie Dusty for a photo shoot at the studio & we both had an amazing time. Simon was so clever at getting Dusty to pose on the various props & it was a very enjoyable session. I went back a week later to view the photographs on a big screen & wow… Read more “Photos to treasure”
Customer service is a priority here in the studio. We will discuss exactly what you want from your professional photography session to ensure the results match your expectations. You can choose from our range of backdrops and props to enhance your dog’s portrait session. We even have a ‘green screen’ backdrop so we can overlay a wide range of alternative backgrounds. We want your finished photo to look fantastic on the walls of your home. We will take additional close up shots of your dogs collar, mouth/nose and paws to give you the option of including these in a montage style image. Feel free to bring favourite toys, coats, and neckerchiefs to include in the selection of photographs too.
Once your photos have been professionally edited you have a choice of how you would like to display the art on your walls. You can choose from a range of digital and standard prints along with some beautiful ‘wall art’ options and we have samples in the studio to help you choose. There are lots of sizes so you can be sure to get the most suitable size for your home. All wall art is produced at a local Professional Processing Lab and framers to ensure it is of the highest quality with the best finish. Of course there will be a digital image for you to share across social media and to keep on your phone or use as your computer wallpaper!
One of the styles we specialise in at the studio is the ‘Watch Me Grow’ Shoot. This is where we take 3 photoshoots over a period of one year from Puppy to young adult. Once your puppy has had its vaccinations bring him to the studio to be photographed at 12 to 16 weeks, 6 months, then again at 12 months. We create a montage with each age so you have a record of how your tiny cute little puppy evolved into the beautiful adult dog they will become. They don’t stay small puppies for long and this is a great way to capture that first year when they change so quickly and preserve that cuteness forever.
We also provide an ‘End of Life’ Shoot. When our beloved dog gets into their later years it is important to have a more relaxed shot of them so that when they do cross the rainbow bridge you have that lasting memory of the faithful family friend they became. Our memories fade with time but a photograph can honour that faithful friend and keep them as part of the family for many years into the future.
We believe in having a social responsibility too. It is important to both of us that we give back to the community. In 2019 we are proud to be part of the National Dog Portrait Awards and to help raise much needed funds for national dog charities chosen by participants. We have given our time free of charge to help local dog owners enter the competition.
