London Dog Photographer
I capture your dog’s lovable, unique character with stunning outdoor photography across London and the South-East.
Capturing Your Dog’s Unique Character With Timeless Images
Your dog is a member of your family and the bond you have with them is undeniably special.
Time spent with them is precious, but too short.
Book your Dog Photoshoot in London or the South-East and soon you will be displaying beautiful images in your home.
Emma is an amazing photographer and was fab with Lulu during the shoot, we are thrilled with the images she captured, it was really hard to choose as so many great photos! A brilliant range of products available, we went with a canvas which we are extremely pleased with.
Emma was absolutely brilliant at capturing my dog’s personality, she was patient, calm and always consulted me on which shots we’d capture next. The final product is a set of beautiful, high quality photos that I’ll treasure.
Really enjoyed my photoshoot with Emma! She took the time to understand what I was looking for to get the best poses of my little Buddy. The prints and photobook I ordered were of a very high quality and I’m very pleased 🙂

Passionate Dog Photographer, as well as being Hoomum to Schlappohr
After many years of working in the City, I decided to quit my job and subsequently became a London Dog Photographer!
Believe me when I say not a day goes by without me taking photos of my much loved dog. Why? Because, like you, I want to capture moments in his life that reflect his (very!) unique personality. You can find out more about Schlappohr here!
Wouldn’t it be great if our dogs obeyed us 100% of the time? Trust me, mine doesn’t! When it comes to a dog photoshoot I have techniques that I can use, in order to perfectly capture your dog sitting and looking directly at the camera. Or running straight towards me with a joyous expression on their face!
It is so rewarding when clients tell me they are struggling to choose their favourite image(s). Or that my images have brought tears (of joy!) to their eyes.
Some people ask me, “Is a Dog Photographer a job?” Yes, it certainly is! And I couldn’t think of a better “job” – I absolutely adore dogs, I love being outdoors, and creating treasured memories is so fulfilling.

Tips to Prepare your Dog for their Photoshoot
I mean your dog not you! If your dog has a certain haircut that you prefer, I recommend visiting the groomers a few days prior to the session.
Let them have a good sniff around and go to the toilet before the session. But don’t exhaust them, we don’t want them panting in all the images and they still need some energy for those action shots!
Bring your dog’s favourite toys if they have any. This may be a ball or soft toy. They can help focus the dog’s attention and can be used to get them running around.
If possible, bring a flat collar for your dog’s portrait images. If you need a harness for walking that’s fine, we can take it off once we’re at the shooting location.
Your dog will be delighted to hear that we tend to go through lots of treats during the session, so please bring plenty. Small pieces will work best.
- Lead & collar – a clean one that will be in the images.
- Harness – for walking between locations, if needed.
- Treats – no dog wants to work for free!
- Water – for both you and your dog.
- Poo bags!
Please relax and enjoy it! Your dog’s job is to be a dog. If we have them sitting and they decide to stand, don’t worry, ignore it! I don’t have an assistant so if I need your dog to be in a certain position, I’ll let you know and will need your help with that. The most important thing is that you remain calm and don’t get stressed out. As long as your dog is happy, we will get some great images!
