What To Expect From Happy Tails Photography
We have many years of experience in natural pet photography and in order to capture the perfect images for you we have found a little preparation is required.
Here is a breakdown of what to expect from your pet portrait experience with Happy Tails Photography.
Once you’ve decided that Happy Tails Photography is the best service for you we have a few administrative processes to ensure we have covered everything to make this a fun, memorable and satisfying experience for you and your pet. We require a booking form with your preferred date for your photo shoot and some basic information about you and your pet/s … Afternoons provide the best opportunity for soft natural light and are ideal for outdoor shoots, so keep this in mind when allocating your preferred time/date.
We will then be in touch to confirm the date and send a link with further details for you to complete the booking process. A signed session agreement and deposit is required to secure your date…then simply complete our online questionnaire about your pet/s, their appearance, personality and what makes them special!
Making a Plan
To ensure your experience with us is ideal we will discuss your ideas for locations and your expectations during our pre-shoot consultation, Beautiful and interesting locations are crucial to quality of the final images… it is important that you choose a location that your pet is comfortable with. We provide an on-location service and can be in a local park, beach, urban landscape… even in your own home, providing there is lots of natural light.
To get you ready for the next step, we will send you a session preparation guide outlining suggestions of how to prepare, and what to expect on the day of the shoot.
For your pet photo-shoot be prepared for a fun, professional experience with us. With our years of experience in pet photography, we understand that sometimes extra time and loads of patience is required to get the perfect shots…we dedicate enough time to put your pets at ease to ensure we can capture their true personalities at their photogenic best.
The camera doesn’t make an appearance until we have had time to make friends with each other…and we like to keep things fun and natural…providing you with a selection of posed and candid portraits. Our goal is to capture the essence of the special relationship you have with your pet… we like to allow the animals to set the pace of the shoot. All you need to do is bring your pet, a few of their favourite toys and treats, relax and enjoy the day with us!
About 2-3 weeks after the photo-shoot, prepare yourself for the best part of the process … seeing your beautiful images for the first time.
An in-person viewing time is organised to show you the output of all of our hard work, at which time we will discuss with you the options for your final image production. Along with the edited proof images we will also show you a range of product samples, sizes and finishes from which you can place an order for your final prints. We will discuss with you your requirements and choose your favourite images for your order.

Depending on the products you order, your purfect pet portraits will be ready in 2-4 weeks.
Knowing your new images will be cherished for many years makes us proud of the services we provide.
