Here at Fuzz, I always focus on taking photos of pets. My passion is pet photography and creating gorgeous artwork featuring people’s much loved animals. I always work with clients who truly love their pets and consider them part of the family. So I often get asked, do I take photos of people? The short answer is yes, but they have to be with their pet!
I absolutely love to include people in the moment with their pets. Such sweet moments, amazing connections and the true bond can be captured in an image. You might have a thousand photos of your pet on your phone, but probably not many of you with your pet.
I only have one rule when it comes to having photos taken with people and their pets. It’s pretty simple, the entire photo session needs to be about your pet! I don’t make you pose in a certain way or give a lot of “people pose” direction.
How does it work? When you arrive at our property in the Murraylands, you’ll park at the lovely roundabout and I will greet you. It is only a short drive down the freeway from the Adelaide Hills (about 20 minutes from Mount Barker and 45 minutes from Adelaide.) You’ll get to enjoy the native trees and other foliage throughout our Murray Bridge property as the backdrop of your photo session. We normally start with pet portraits, which lets me get to know their personality, get them used to the camera and find out what really makes them light up! Once your pet is happy and comfortable, then I encourage people to have some photos with their pet. There is plenty of time to get a great range of photos of your pet and to capture people with their pet.
Another beautiful part of pet photography is capturing photos of pets and the children who love them. I’m lucky to have worked with children of all ages, while working in schools around Adelaide, South Australia and while volunteering in Pets as Therapy programs. I also have a current working with Children with Children Clearance. I am always happy to let kids join in on the session, as long as the photos are of them interacting with their pet.
Not only do these make for gorgeous images, these will be moments in time you’ll absolutely treasure for life. I know every photo I have of myself with my pets growing up is something I am so thankful to have a physical copy of. I absolutely love creating albums and keepsake boxes with these images, as I know there are so many beautiful moments during these sessions, it’s hard to pick!
