Photo sessions are an enjoyable way to spend time with your pet and preserve their memory in custom artwork for your home or office. This quick guide shows the session process from scheduling your session to the final product delivery.
Schedule your session
Ready to go head with your session? Select your preferred session type and fill in the correct form by clicking here. Once completed, you will be taken to the calendar to book the session date. Sessions are held in the late afternoon, 1-2 hours before sunset, to take full advantage of the "golden hour". This is what gives the images the beautiful warm afternoon light.
Once the booking form is complete and session date is selected, you will be sent a welcome pack in the mail full of information and details about your session. The pack will include vital information on how to prepare for your session, a complete product price list and how you are helping shelter dogs in need.
Preparing for your session
It is getting closer to your session date which means time for some cleaning and preening! Make sure your pet is clean ready for the session, which can include a visit to the salon, toe nail clip, trim or wash. You can refer back to the session preparation guide which you received in your welcome pack for tips and tricks.
We will also keep a keen eye on the weather to see if there is any rain or heavy cloud cover forecast around your session date.
This is where the real fun begins! All things going to plan, we will have a nice sun-filled afternoon for the session. As we all know, the weather can change, and, if dark storm clouds start to roll in or it begins to rain, the session will be rescheduled to a date that suits you at no additional cost.
The length of your session will depend on which session option you have selected, and the direction of the session will depend on your pet. Is your four-legged friend young and energetic? We may begin the session running around to burn some energy and capture action shots. If your pet is a little shy or wary we may begin in a calm state of mind so your pet understands the camera is nothing to be afraid of.
Viewing your images
Shortly after your session we will schedule the viewing and ordering appointment. This is where you will view the carefully selected and edited images from your session for the first time. Usually this is in your home where we can design art products to suit. Samples of the available products will be brought to the viewing session so you can touch and feel each finish, as well as ask any questions on how your unique images become custom works of art.
After your viewing and ordering appointment, your selected images will be sent to various professional printing labs where your products start to come to life. You may also see an image from your session feature on my Facebook page or Instagram account. Plus every session receives a dedicated blog post you can share with your family and friends.
Delivery of your products
The final step, the big reveal of your new custom products! Once all your products have returned from the printing labs and has passed the final inspection, you will receive a phone call to arrange a delivery date. Your products will be delivered right to your door, where you will see them for the first time. We will go over each product to make sure you are happy, this is also the perfect time to ask any final questions about artwork placement or hanging.
Help with always be at hand if you have any queries in the future, with each product coming with a minimum 30 year guarantee.
