Question & Answers
FAQ : Frequently Asked Questions
Shoot location really depends on you, your pet/s, children and what kind of images you would like.
It varies according to what images you would like how many petsand people are involved.
Usually between 45 mins – 1.5 hours.
Definitely yourselves and your pet!
We do ask if your pet has a favourite toy, or likes special treats, we ask you to bring these along.
If you want to dress your pet up in any outfits you may have, bring these too. If small children are also involved in this shoot we do ask you bring a small healthy snack and a drink for them just in case.
We find that if a child is hungry or thirsty, they are not at their best. If out on location please arrive ready to be photographed. If we are photographing at the studio, we do have facilities for you and your family to get changed if need be.
Of course the session isn’t just all about your pet/s, having photos taken of yourself, your fur babies and your family will make your shoot even more special. We love to celebrate the relationships between Pets and their People.Ensuring yourselves and your pet/s look the best possible goes without saying!.
How to get the best out of your pet!
You and your family:
Wear clothes you feel great in! It is that easy. If you love to dress up we can do a fabulously “fancy” portrait for you, if you are casual, trendy, classic or eclectic, we can do something PAWsome to suit your style. Choose colours that don’t blend with your pets colouring, for eg. try to avoid all black if your dog is black. If there is more than one person being photographed with your pet/s, choose clothing for everyone that co-ordinates well and looks great together, avoiding a mix-match of patterns and colours is advisable. “Keep it simple” is a great motto to go by. As we are often in Parks and feet will be in the shot, consider shoe choice and sock colours, footwear you can easily walk in, that you like the look of and will be happy with in your photos.
We always have our fingers and toes crossed that for the hour of the shoot
the rain will stop, and so far this seems to have worked.
Of the 120 PAWtrait Sessions we did in 2014
only 1 was rescheduled due to Bad weather and a few rained just before
shooting commenced and straight after, but never during.
Many of your animals will be photographed in an outdoor setting,
so we are always considering the weather and best lighting times.
Being based in Melbourne (known for four season in one day),
we understand that changes in weather can mean a shoot needs to be rescheduled or relocated.
If the weather is forecast to be temperamental on the day of your shoot,
we will touch base with you, to discuss what you would prefer to do.
Like the weather there are certain things that can not be predicted,
we understand this at PAWtraits and try to be as accommodating as possible.
We appreciate as much advance notice as is possible.
Multiple rescheduling will result in an additional session fee.
