All dogs have a tale to tell…

Pet Tails and Portraits is my photography service for the special animals in your family, but as a life long dog owner I have a particular passion for dog photography. 

I can tell your dog’s story like only a true dog lover can.

I offer dog photography studio sessions in my home studio near East Grinstead or outdoor sessions across Sussex, Surrey and Kent; creating beautiful images that capture the essence of your dog’s personality. 

I capture an expression unique to them, a glance that tells you they’re your best friend in all the world, a pose that says a thousand words. I look for the detail: those bright eyes, ears up, that tilt of the head, the way they sit just so…

My photoshoots are an exciting but poignant experience, allowing me to stop time for a moment and create long lasting memories.

We had an amazing photo session with our dog Archie and had a great range of pictures to choose from. Nic is a very experienced photographer who was able to engage well with with my dog. We purchased some very nice products. I would highly recommend Nic to my family and friends and will definitely use her services again in the future.

 Photoshoot Options

Book a dog photoshoot with me and enjoy a special time creating lasting memories of this beautiful creature and cherished family member. Each photoshoot is completely tailored to your dog and your family. Choose your preferred setting that you feel would suit your dog or contact me if you’ d like to chat it through.

Dog session fees include pre-shoot advice, a post-shoot viewing and ordering session or a gallery and one professionally mounted 6 x 8” print.

Additional images, prints and frames can be purchased at your post shoot viewing session, approx 3 weeks after your dog photoshoot. View my Prints & Frames Product Guide here.


Beautiful stylised and perfectly lit images with stunning backdrops to really bring out your dog’s coat and details. These sessions last about 1.5 hours and take place in my home studio on the borders of Surrey, Kent and Sussex.

Ideal for dogs who would be easier to photograph indoors. Reduces the stress of meeting other dogs or the fear they may run away. Perfect for those who are looking for a fine art style product.   

£75 weekday / £95 weekend 


In an environment where dogs often feel most at home my outdoor dog photoshoots allow me to capture natural shots, as well as more fine art styled images.

Each photoshoot is individually planned so we can chat beforehand about what makes your dog special, what you would like me to capture and what you are planning to do with your photos.

I can suggest a number of tried and tested and beautiful dog walk locations within 30 minutes travel from my studio in Dormans Park, West Sussex. Or, if you have a favourite dog walk, additional travel costs may apply.

1.5-2 hour session. 

Perfect for both natural and fine art portrait and action shots.  Great for capturing the special relationship between owner and dog.

I offer these short 30 minute photoshoots either at my home studio, in your garden or on a favourite local walk to capture a few precious shots of your loved one in their last few days (within 30 minutes travel from my home studio in Dormans Park, West Sussex).

I did a photoshoot with Nic with my daughter and dog. Nic was absolutely fantastic from start to finish; was very patient and knew how to achieve the best shots. I’m over the moon with the prints – the quality is second to none – and would highly recommend her to anyone!”
