Dog Photography in Portsmouth, Hampshire

Here at Crystal Contrast Dog Photography we do things a little differently. A completely relaxed and fun experience for you and your pup! 

Planning your session...

Can’t decide between studio portraits and fun on-location shots for your dog photo session? We offer both! Choose between an in-home studio style shoot, an on-location session at your pupper’s favourite walking spot or both! 

The studio comes to you...

For in-home studio sessions, 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...

For our gorgeous natural light on-location sessions, 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.

So what does it cost?

Let’s keep it simple. A session for your dog costs £25. This includes an on-location session or a studio-style session in your own home. If you can’t decide, its £40 to do both! This includes your very own proofs pack sent straight to your door. From these proofs, you can purchase the images you love. No minimum orders, no catch.

We can make the best of whatever space you have, but usually a minimum of 2x2m is ideal. Sometimes it helps to move some furniture or even incorporate some in our set! Don’t worry, we’ll discuss the options when planning your 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. 

Absolutely! Our dog photography sessions make the perfect gift to the pet-lover in your life.View our online store for all the details.

We absolutely encourage you to get involved in the session with your pets. Just let us know who you’d like to be involved and we’ll chat about how to prepare yourselves. 

Sure, here you go!

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.

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.
