About 4 Legs Photography - Natural photography for active pets

 
 
 

Hi!

I'M JULIETTE

Devoted whippet mum, passionate pet photographer, lover of all things purple and aspiring seaside resident.

Dogs have always been an integral part of my life, having always had at least one family dog. Their unconditional love brightening the dullest of days.

Pet photography came after the sudden death of my beloved Purdy. A Saluki/Whippet lurcher and My first dog, she suddenly crossed rainbow bridge at 8 years old. Looking back I have a lot of happy, phone snaps but only one image worthy of hanging on the wall. I have very few pictures of her and me together and that’s something I regret.

Five years ago, when I got my whippet, Layla, I vowed I would have beautiful images of her to treasure, however long I get to have with her. I bought my first DSLR camera and Layla became my muse.

Having a whippet as a muse means I naturally became a specialist in fast moving dogs. It’s wonderful to see the joy spread across their faces as they leap through the air. My favourite image is of Layla, flying through the surf at Woolacombe beach, North Devon. It’s such a wonderful place I’ve vowed to live there one day!

Not all dogs like to sit still

5 Things you might not know about me

  • Layla has to suffer my love of all things purple.....it's a good job it suits her!
  • I’m usually dressed fairly casual as most of my clothes end up with paw prints on and covered in fur (I’m a slave to 4 cats and a whippet!)
  • I can't load film into an old camera to save my life.....trust me, I've tried!
  • I like nothing better than the sound of crashing waves but my favourite smell has to be puppy breath!
  • I appreciate the little things in life and laugh a lot…..when I say laugh, it’s more like a cackle.

 

Why choose 4 Legs Photography?

You think your dog isn’t trained enough for a photo session, running around, nose in the grass, then obsessing over a ball or squirrel! You don’t want images of your dog looking stressed and unsure of themselves in an unfamiliar environment. You love the outdoors and so does your dog, that’s where you both feel relaxed and most at ease.  Well, you’ve come to the right place.

This is me, Juliette, and my furry kid, Layla

When you chose 4 Legs Photography, you're chosing me, Juliette.  I understand your dog is independent and has a mind of their own.  Because of that, I specialise in capturing dogs in action being themselves. There's no need to worry as with no pressure for them to 'perform' you can rest assured that they won't be an embarrassment! Our time together will be fun, relaxed and pressure free for you and your beloved furry kid.

"Juliette's empathy with anything 4 legged is quite something to behold. My dog adores her, which makes it very easy for me." 

- Tracy Bevan

Did you know dogs in rescue are given a name on entry? Working with Mutts in Distress, I know that unless they’ve been in rescue a long time they rarely know what their name is. That’s not to say that they can't have a great image taken of them, even if they’re a lurcher zooming around the paddock! In fact, a lot of the time it’s difficult to pin it down to just one image for the rescue centre’s web page.

Laid Back Action Plan

Initial Consultation

I meet with you and your furry kid before the photo shoot to find out what you want from the session. This also gives your dog the opportunity to meet me before the shoot so they feel more comfortable - especially important with nervous/shy dogs.

Photo Shoot

We go to a location familiar to your pet and capture the essence of your 4 legged family member. I promise to bring a fun relaxed atmosphere, endless patience and a sense of humour.

Viewing Session

I’ll show you the images from the shoot and you get to pick your favourite 5. You also have the opportunity to purchase additional products if you feel any need to hang pride of place on your wall.

Delivery

Your digitals will be delivered via online gallery for you to download directly. Once any artwork is complete, it's checked that the quality meets my high standards. I then deliver your items to your home.

The Experience

Short on time? That’s ok, I’ll do all the legwork.

I realise your time is precious, that’s why I’ll come to you and discuss your requirements prior to the session, and you can show me any spaces you might have on your wall that you would like your artwork.  It also gives me an opportunity to meet your dog and make sure they are comfortable with me and the camera.

We’ll have a fun, relaxed time at the photo session, allowing your dog to run, play and generally be their natural, inquisitive selves. 

About 1 week after the photo session I’ll return to your home to show you the best images. Know you want your images displayed, but you’re not quite sure how?  Not to worry,  I'll be there to help you decide how best to show off the images you choose.

Once you’ve ordered and paid, local labs will create your chosen products and when I’ve checked them over, I’ll deliver them to your door. 

So, you see, all you have to do is have a fun time out with your dog and leave all the rest to me.
