How it works: The Spotty Paws experience

Get in touch
So you’ve seen our portfolio and want to commission us to photograph your pet. That’s great! Let’s talk so you can get to know us a little better and have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about the sessions, products, or anything else.

Booking your session
We book our sessions on weekends; and recommend starting either early morning or late afternoon close to sunset as these times of day give us the best natural light. Our sessions include one location and if you’re having trouble deciding where you’d like to go for your session, please contact us and we’ll be happy to share some of our favourite locations with you.

When you’re ready to book your session, send us an email or fill out the contact form with your preferred date and location. We’ll be in touch to confirm availability of the date and then a session agreement for you to sign. Once that’s done we will send you a booking confirmation email, along with a questionnaire to be completed and returned to us prior to your session and photo session guide outlining what to expect from the session and how to prepare for it. The creative fee is due 48 hours before the session.

The session
It’s the big day! All you have to do is turn up with your pet along with their favourite treats or toys, and we’re ready to have some fun! We’ll spend up to the next hour following your pet around doing what they do best and allowing their personality to shine. We’ll cuddle and play with your pet and do just about anything to get the amazing shots that we know you’ll love. Our sessions are relaxed and flexible, designed to adapt to your pet’s pace.

After the session
We carefully select and professionally retouch the very best images of your pet. Your final images will be ready in 2 short weeks, and available for viewing and download via our online gallery. Our High Resolution images comes with unlimited printing license and the Web Resolution version of the same images can be used for sharing with friends and family via social media and emails. If you choose to place an order from the beautiful collection of products that we offer, they will be ready for collection or delivery in about 2 to 3 weeks.

We’ll follow up a few days later for some feedback on your experience. All that’s left to do now is sit back and enjoy your beautiful new images!
