Specialist Pet Photography

It is only when one shares their life with animals, that they can truly understand the depth of the emotion they evoke. Their presence touches lives in so many ways. Often pets provide comfort, laughter and a listening ear. They never criticise or question our judgements and their loyalty remains true till their last breath. At Detheo Photography we understand this first hand.


specialist Pet Photography Service

Over the years we have refined our Pet Photography skills, enabling us to create images that capture an animal’s individual personality and the very essence of who they are. Our extensive experience has taught us that animals are best photographed within a natural environment, or at least one they are familiar with. As such the majority of Pet Photography sessions are held on location, such as at Stables, the yard, in woods, the forest or even at the beach!

However, in some circumstances, this is not appropriate. This could be because we are working with the very young, very old or those with significant medical needs. In these cases, we have a number of options including our own dedicated Studio or bringing the Pet Photography session to you.

We have experience in photographing a wide variety of animals including, Dogs, Cats, Horses etc. However, it is our experience of working with many nervous/fearful dogs, that has drawn the most attention. Often owners of these dogs would consider it impossible to have their pet photographed by a professional photographer. So, we are immensely proud to say, they can!


My Dog Never Stands Still!

Thats great news! We love to capture images that you can really relate to. This means we want to capture the natural behaviour your dog displays and so sitting still is not a requirement. In fact the livelier the better!

However, if your pet is not so lively, that is okay too. Our passion is to capture them being themselves. 

Before every session, regardless of the species of animal we will be photographing, we ask you to complete a Booking Form. This gives us insight into the character of your pet and what to expect in terms of their level of training, excitability, nervousness etc 

This enables us to plan for the session to ensure that we, not only capture some stunning photographs, but that your pet has a great time too. 

Watch Me Grow & Rainbows Bridge Sessions

Our WATCH ME GROW sessions document your pets changes over time. This includes 3 sessions equally spread over a 12 month period (ideally the first year of their life). They offer the perfect opportunity to capture all the fantastic memories that will soon fade into the past. 

And whilst it may be hard to consider, we also have our RAINBOWS BRIDGE sessions. These specifically cater for pets that sadly do not have long left with us.

Over the years, experience has taught us the importance of maintaining a positive, calm environment, especially when working with pets who have significant medical needs.  As such these sessions are carefully planned, in partnership with our clients. We work hard to ensure they cater for any medical related issues, such as incontinence etc. We also aim to incorporate very specifically, things that are symbolic of the relationship between them and their pet.
