As pet owners, we understand that not every furry friend is naturally social or comfortable in new environments. At our photography sessions, we embrace and celebrate the diverse personalities of pets, ensuring that even the most timid or independent companions can shine in front of the camera. In this blog post, we’ll explore why your pet doesn’t need to be social for a photography session and how we create a safe and comfortable experience for them.
Why Socialisation Isn’t a Requirement for a Photography Session
A Private Farm Setting
One of the key aspects that sets our photography sessions apart is the specially designed environment we provide. Our sessions take place at our private farm, ensuring there are no other people or dogs wandering around to create distractions. This secluded setting allows your pet to relax and focus on their surroundings, without feeling overwhelmed by unfamiliar faces or noisy surroundings.
Safety Measures for a Peaceful Experience
While we are pet owners ourselves and cherish our own furry companions, we understand the importance of maintaining a controlled and safe environment for your pet during the session. Our dogs and cats are securely contained in our fenced-off house block, which means your pet won’t see or come into contact with them at any point during the session. We prioritize your pet’s peace of mind and take great care to ensure they feel secure and at ease throughout their time with us.
Extensive Experience and Respect for Boundaries
With years of experience as a dog trainer and Pets as Therapy trainer, we bring a deep understanding of working with and around dogs and cats that may not be naturally social. We respect every pet’s personal space and boundaries, ensuring that we never rush or push them beyond their comfort zone. Our goal is to create a stress-free and enjoyable experience for your pet, where they can settle in and be themselves at their own pace.
Adapting to Your Pet’s Needs
To further cater to your pet’s unique requirements, we ask that you handle your pet, on lead, during the session. We will always be at a comfortable distance to capture stunning photos while respecting their personal space. If your pet requires extra space for their comfort, we can utilise a longer lens to maintain a safe distance while still capturing beautiful portraits. With our amazing zoom lens, we can even capture close-up details without making your pet nervous.
Preparation and Customisation
Before the session, we provide a comprehensive pre-session questionnaire that allows you to customise every aspect of the session to suit you and your pet’s needs. We understand that each pet is an individual, and we value the opportunity to tailor the experience to their preferences. Additionally, we offer the option of arranging a call or meeting to provide you with extra assurances and address any concerns you may have about creating a safe space for your pet.
Natural Settling in a Relaxed Environment
We find that in the wide-open spaces of our farm, surrounded by intriguing smells and relaxed walking opportunities, pets naturally settle into their surroundings. The serene environment allows them to explore and find their comfort zone, which results in genuine and captivating portraits that truly capture their essence.
Embracing Unique Personalities
We adore meeting pets with different personalities, as every session is a chance to celebrate the individuality of your beloved companion. Our aim is to create amazing portraits that reflect their true spirit and capture the beauty of their unique personality, regardless of their socialisation preferences.
