Pet Photoshoot

There's nothing quite like the bond between pet owners and their pets.  And there's nothing quite like the frustration of trying to take a great photo of your pet while he or she fidgets or moves at that vital moment, even with the convenience of digital cameras. 
Pets hold a very special place in the heart of pet owners, so why not treat a pet owner's pet to his own special photoshoot with a photographer who knows their stuff?  Then his or her owner will have something special to look back on, with a special momento of their beloved animal friend.   You could also create a photobook of a pet for something really special.   And you can always check out the tips on taking pics of your pets here

Here's a round up of experience companies which offer Pet Portraits or Pet Photoshoots as one of their gift experiences, so here's a round up of a few of them...all purchases are subject to their terms & conditions so check carefully before buying... woof, woof...

As a GENERAL rule you'll book a time with a photographer for your photoshoot, and after the session you'll view the images to choose a complimentary portrait and order any additional pictures you want (which you pay for).  On several of these experiences, you will need to pay a deposit on booking, and on a couple you'll need to pay postage of your prints.
