DO YOU WANT TO ALWAYS REMEMBER?
ARE PHOTOS A CHALLENGE?
Do you struggle to get great images of your dog and child together?
Dogs aren't with us for nearly long enough!
ARE YOUR WALLS IN NEED OF ART?
Do you have pictures of your dog (or even your kids!) on display at home?
if you answered yes to any of these then the Paw-trait Pop-up is perfect for you!
WHAT IMAGES LIKE THIS WOULD MEAN IN TEN YEARS TIME?
How special will it be for your kids to look back on these pictures when they've grown up!
Wow! Just wow!
I knew I would love your photos but they are even more gorgeous that what I expected.
I just can't decide which ones I love the most.
Natalie McCulley (Pop-up Portraits)
We are blown away!

Kristi Schlup (Pop-up Portraits)

Thank you so much it just fills my heart with so much love with how you have captured their fun and laughter!

HOW DO I BOOK?

WHAT ABOUT COVID ALERT LEVELS?
The Paw-trait Pop-up will only go ahead if we are in level 2 or lower.
Standard safety precautions will be undertaken, including scanning in, using hand sanitiser and sanitising surfaces between clients. Myself and my assistant will wear masks.
The space we are using will also allow use of my 'long lens' if necessary which enables me to keep distance, although we will definitely need a family member to help with handling the dog in this case.
HOW MUCH WILL THE IMAGES COST?
i am offering a range of framed artworks, prints and digital files.
You can view the full price list here. Most people spend between $390 and $540 on their images.
There is no minimum spend. You only buy what you love (just be warned you'll likely love them all)!
WHAT IF MY DOG (OR MY CHILD) DOESN'T COOPERATE?
As we are working with dogs and children I will do my absolute best to get a range of beautiful images, but of course, I cannot offer any guarantees.
If your dog is too overwhelmed by the situation and we are not able to get at least one good shot for your complimentary print I will refund your ticket price.
I HAVE A BIG DOG. IS THAT OK?
Dog of all shapes and sizes are welcome.
I will work with the dog in front of me to get the best images possible.
WHAT AGE DO OUR KIDS NEED TO BE?
Kids of all ages are welcome - even 'kids at heart' can come along for their own pictures.
So if you're a dog mum or dad with no human children you're welcome to bring yourself along for a portrait with your dog.
The set-up may not be suitable for babies or very young children. Safety of the child is the most important factor and I feel in these situations it is likely easier to manage the dog at home where it is comfortable in its own environment.
WHAT IF MY DOG ISN'T VERY OBEDIENT?
Dogs do not need to have obedience training to take part.
How I handle each photoshoot will depend on the dog and child in front of me. I will have an assistant helping me on the day.
Most dogs will be photographed on the lead, but don't worry, you won't see the lead in the final images (this is where my handy friend Photoshop does a really awesome job).
WHAT ABOUT SIBLINGS?
What a lucky dog to have so many best buddies!!
Siblings are welcome.
Bear in mind most dogs have a limited time span that they will cooperate for pictures.
I will do what I can to get a range of pictures but I cannot guarantee we will get pictures with every child or a picture with everybody together.
