Dog Photography in Portsmouth, Hampshire

Here at Crystal Contrast Dog Photography we do things a little differently. We’re bringing back the fun, personal touch to pet photography! A truly personalised experience from start to end, ensuring you timeless images that capture their personality and everything you love about your faithful friend.

Planning your session...

Can’t decide between studio portraits and fun on-location shots for your dog photo session? Well you don’t have to! Every session with us includes an in-home studio style shoot AND an on-location session at your pupper’s favourite walking spot! We’ll chat when you book about your ideas for the sessions and pick and date and time.

The studio comes to you...

For your in-home studio style session, we bring our fully portable studio to you. Photographing dogs in their own home ensures they are comfortable and relaxed throughout.  Our studio sessions are perfect for capturing classic portraits along with some creative fabulous-ness!

Time for walkies...

Next, usually later the same day, we head out to one of our beautiful local locations. We let dogs be dogs. There’s no pressure to perform, we just capture them having a great time! The best time for our outdoor sessions is the hour or so before sunset. This is when the light is at its softest and most golden.

...and relax!

Once the session is over, sit back and relax while we prepare your proofs. Over the next 2-3 weeks be sure to keep an eye on your letter box! You’ll receive a pack containing samples of all your images, along with all the information you need to place your order.

Every session includes two parts – a studio session and an on-location shoot. First off, we bring our portable studio to your home (or garden depending on space!) to capture your doggo’s classic portraits. We’ll then head out for a walk-photoshoot combo where we capture your pupper being their marvelous self! We have a few local locations we use regularly for these sessions which we can suggest, but are always open to new ideas!

We all know how unpredictable British weather can be! Our on-location sessions are dependent on good light, so if the weather is unfavourable on the day I will be in touch to discuss rescheduling the session.

While a perfectly trained pooch would certainly make our session easier, it is definitely not a requirement! When you book, we’ll ask about your dog’s level of training as well as things they love and hate. This helps us to prepare for the session. We’ll certainly use any training they do have during the session, but don’t worry! We believe in letting dog be dogs and will capture their personality regardless of their level of training. 

You can take a look at all our prices here, but to make a long ol’ story short:

Our session fee is £25. This includes your in-home studio session and an on-location photoshoot, post-processing of the best images from both sessions and your photo proofs sent straight to your door. 

You can then decide how much you wish to spend – there are no minimum orders and you only buy what you love! Prints, wall art, canvases and digital images are available, as well as some great value packages. Check out all our products here

We are proud to offer Legacy Sessions. Legacy Sessions are special photo sessions just for terminally ill and elderly pets. Rather than something sad, these sessions are an opportunity to capture the relationship you have with your pets before they pass. They’re a celebration of life, creating tangible memories that you can cherish forever.

Legacy Sessions are tailored to your pet’s situation and we endeavour to schedule them as soon as possible. They also include a free mini accordion album with your images to cherish for years to come. 

Pets really are part of the family. Our sessions are tailored to you and your beloved pet, with no time limits and no pressure. To chat about how we can capture your pet’s uniqueness, or for more information, get in touch below.
