Travel fee outside of 60km radius from Klerksdorp may apply. Digital files/prints/canvas/albums are all sold seperately - either individually, or as part of/ additional to, a gallery collection.

Whilst it will make things a lot more relaxed if they do have a few minutes concentration every so often, I will work together with you to make this fun for everyone. The best images are of relaxed subjects - both you and them. Meeting with you prior to the session will help put everyone at ease.
It is entirely up to you. My recommendation is that you definitely be in some of the image with your pet. The human/animal companionship bond is very individual and unique. These are the special memories which will carry you through tough times.
High heels, very light colours or white, may not be the best idea for busy dogs, certain locations and black may not be best for cats or those which shed frequently. Cats and dogs on discreet lead/collars, harnasses will not be edited out. Horse halters will possibly not be edited out, so make it a special one. Further guidance will be given at the pre-session consult.
Skinny, scaly, feathered, furry and all others inbetween - all animals welcome. Even spiders and snakes! As long as you catch them if they decide to go walkies... small critters best be shot in your home or the studio. Logistics can be discussed during the pres-session meeting.
Unfortunately at times we find out unexpectedly that our companion animals will not live much longer - I have been through this myself. If you would like to have beautiful images taken before they pass, I recommend you contact me and I will squeeze your session in. This will be done where it is most comfortable for the animal.
During the course of the year, I travel to various places around South Africa. Sessions are arranged in these locations - either several short sessions in one day, or some longer individual custom sessions, depending on your needs. In these cases there is no travel fee applicable. Email me with your location to stay updated of plans for your area.
Half Carat Packages - 1 subject per shoot. Standard shoots are best manageable with 1-3 subjects. These can be any combination of humans and animals. Any additional humans/animals elicit an extra R100 per subject. When there are a number of animals, please consider arranging for another set of familiar adult hands to help out - as familiar hands equate relaxed subjects.
You are most welcome to use your product credit for only the digitals. These are made available as high-res files on the product list. However, bear in mind that when you purchase any product, the web-res version of the image/s appearing in that product are supplied free. Thus you can share and enjoy them in many ways.
Your session fee/package fee is payable upfront (EFT/bank deposit). For photo sessions: 50% upon booking a date, the remaining 50% at least 2 days before shooting. (Half Carat Sessions fully payable upon booking). After we have completed shooting, the full pre-paid session fee becomes a credit deductable from your product order total (excluding Half Carat Sessions). Should you decide to not order any products after the shoot, the session fee will not be refundable as it covers work done up to that point. .
Choose one of the standard paint packages or contact me to customize a package for you. Composites of images can be done - this is usually more expensive and takes a bit longer.
