The first year in photographs

Puppies - a year in the life

It's the most magical time when your new puppy arrives home and there are countless moments to capture and treasure.  

Puppy photoshoots can begin as soon as your puppy is settled.  Everything I do is entirely based around your puppy's comfort.  Even if the first time we meet, I just sit and let him or her get used to me and the camera.  A camera can seem huge to a little baby who has never seen anything like it before.  The key is to take our time, and do everything at your puppy's speed.

During the first year of your puppy's life, we schedule 6 photoshoots (a total of about 4hrs, but I really don't put a stop watch on anything I do) varying in time from perhaps 30 minutes for the first 2 or 3 to a full hour as your puppy develops.  This is because 30 minutes will be a long time to your very baby puppy and I want the process to be as enjoyable as possible for him or her and I want the photographs to look fresh for you.  And whilst it's always lovely to include a sleepy puppy in your album, a stressed puppy isn't what either of us will want.


By the time your baby reaches their first birthday, you will have captured some truly wonderful memories.  Your photographs will then be displayed in a stunning full colour hard back photobook. 

The cost for the Puppy Photoshoot is £320.00.  This includes 6 photoshoots (approximately 4hrs).  And your beautiful Puppy Photobook.
