Bringing home a new puppy is super exciting and a wonderful time to capture some fabulous photographs whilst they are still so tiny and sleepy. From birth up to 3 months of age, puppies will usually spend up to 22 hours sleeping. After that first 3 months, they will have more energy to walk around and explore but still sleep for most of the day, by six-months your puppy is an adolescent and he will have an increase in energy and wilfulness. The sooner you can book your puppy in for photographs the better if you want to capture that tiny puppy stage.
I offer Pet Photography in my Portfolio which potentially can cover any pet which is suitable to travel and be safe in a studio environment. Last week I had the pleasure and excitement of photographing two stunning birds of prey, a Saker Falcon and a Harris Hawk. Both arrived in their travel boxes and were taken out one at a time. The handler kept the birds on a leash attached to either his glove or a perch so that there was no risk of flying and damaging their wings. I took a whole series of beautiful photographs which I then edited into a Fine Art style. Here are a few.
Note: When I have pets in the studio all soft furnishings are removed, and things that cannot be removed are covered fully with waterproof coverings to protect them. After a pet session the studio floor is fully steam cleaned to ensure it is perfect fro my next client. Safety and hygiene are my number one priorities.
