I'll be honest, photographing shy cats has it's challenges, and our first photo shoot for Frida and Khalo went belly up. I entered a lounge room full of loud activity, with everyone feeling excited and nervous. The cats, as a result, were not happy. Especially as...
I was excited to meet Lily, the apricot toy poodle. I'd been told she is as small as a wee puppy and cute to boot. I entered, my eyes caught sight of her, and wow, what an understatement! There she sat in her PJ's, nestled into her dad's arms, and I immediately...
A concern we hear often is that photographing a rescue dog is too difficult. There's a belief they are harder to work with as they may be more fearful or reactive than other pets. However, we've worked with many rescue dogs with different reactive tendencies over the...
Every year hundreds of generous people make bequests to the RSPCA, helping them continue their great work. This year we were asked to help with cat photography of Alfredo and Eliza, and of course we said yes! Owned by Kate, one of their ever loyal volunteers and...
Mimi the Silky Terrier thinks she’s a Rottweiler in size! She struts her little legs in the sand like a bull, pees like a male, and leads the pack down at the park.
I love rocking up to a pet photoshoot and not knowing what I'm going to find. The challenge of working with a variety of pets, people, locations, lighting and personalities, brings out the best in me, in fact it helps me co-create some truly beautiful pet photography....
A lot of people ask us if they can be in the photos with their pets? We encourage the whole household to join in! We aim to capture the bond between people and their animals. Since you are a huge part of your pet’s life, capturing you having fun together or cuddling is very meaningful.
The level of trust that our pets give us blows me away. As much as my heart melts like butter, it also gives me quite the ego boost. If only I was as perfect a person (or a god) as my dog thinks I am.
Is winter a good time for a photoshoot? There’s a certain romance about winter that you can’t deny. It’s time for rainbows, snuggling, and moody skies. For cosy fires, reading books and eating chocolate. But it’s also a time for frizzy hair, wet feet and cold hands....
Do you need photography content for your business? Are your pets team members? If your pet is a loved member of your team why not use them in your branding, across your website and social media? Firstly, it makes a great conversation starter! But above all using pet...

Frequently Asked Questions
For most of us, having our photo taken isn’t something we do every day. While many of us have a phone filled with photos of our pets, having professional photography of our furry best friend is a bit different.
We’ve compiled a lists of our most commonly asked questions.
Can’t see the answer to your questions? Send us an email or give us a call so you can get the most out of your pet photography shoot.
Can I be part of the photo shoot with my pets?
Yes of course! We aim to capture the bond between people and their animals. You are a huge part of your pets life and capturing you having fun together or cuddling is very meaningful. If you choose not to be in the photos, we may still ask you to assist, even if it’s just incorporating your hands to embrace him/her.
Can I have more than one animal in the shoot?
OF COURSE! It’s important for us to be aware of the number of animals before we arrive for the shoot. Extra time may need to be allocated for shoots with more than 3 animals, or a variety of different animals. This just makes sure we capture beautiful images of all of them.
Should my pet/s be groomed for the shoot?
It’s a personal choice whether or not you want to get your pet groomed before the shoot. If you decide to have your pet groomed, a very small trim and a blow dry is often better than the full cut- you want them to look natural.
DOGS- Be careful with the grooming just before a session (especially with a new groomer)- often mid way through their growth cycle looks best. If you decide to get your grooming done and you haven’t had it done before, let your groomer know that how long you like their hair and that they will be having a photo shoot so need to look as normal as possible.
Does Studio Noah photograph in the studio?
No. Studio Noah comes out to an outdoor location of your choice or can come to your home.
What locations does Studio Noah recommend?
We photograph mainly at peoples homes, local parks and beaches, depending on what type of pets you have. The location is mostly about where you and your pets like to spend time. Cats will be most comfortable and co-operative at home.
Active dogs may be better at a location they can run around freely like a park or if they are water lovers then a beach, whereas smoochy dogs are quite happy to lounge around on the sofa. Some dogs require a fenced in location as they are not great off lead. Please discuss this with us, we may know a location that can provide this, or will suggest a home shoot. Horses are great in their paddock and also at a beach if they like water.
