Black and White Dog in the Langdale's, LakedistrictYour pet photoshoot with Emma, The Pop Up Photographer is booked and you are wondering what happens next?


Here is some useful information to help with planning for your dog photoshoot this will help you get the most out of the experience


Throughout the whole process, it is my job to capture your dogs’ unique personality. If they can’t come off the lead… Not an issue, if they are a million miles an hour and hate sitting still… don’t worry. I am used to working with all types of dogs at every level of training. My aim is to make the whole experience and fun for all those involved, so just relax.

To bring on the day for You

Whilst a lot of owners initially say don’t want to be in the pictures, when it comes to the shoot, I do like to get a few candid shots and these regularly end up being the absolute favourites….

So with this in mind please dress warm, casual smart with sturdy comfortable footwear and waterproofs, I will check the weather the day before to makes sure it is not forecasted for heavy rain, however, this is England and showers happen so better to be prepared…
