Your Zoo Studio Experience

Your Zoo Studio Experience – Session Information

Beautiful portraiture doesn’t just happen, it takes a lot of time, planning and experience. To make sure that each of our artworks is beautiful, personal and telling your story, we go on a journey with each and every one of our clients.

The journey starts with having a conversation about you and your pets in the Planning Consultation, and continues at the Studio Session with Lorraine, our photographer. Next you get to relax in style as you view your photos, Lorraine will help design your artwork, and place your order at the Design and Ordering Consultation.

Part One of the journey is completed when you take possession of your beautiful photography and hang them on your walls, but we hope you continue the journey each day as you view your wall art and keep in touch on our Facebook page.

The Planning Consultation

The first stage of the journey is for us to understand your unique bond with your pets, to hear the stories that you want to capture and remember, and to understand more about the personalities we are to capture. We also want to understand more about where you want to display and hang your artwork so we can provide you with more meaningful information on prices and artwork suggestions. We do this via telephone conversations or face to face consultations at our Milton Road office/studio. We also post you out a booking confirmation package with appointment card, map, price list and general T&C’s.

“Amazing experience! We love the service provided and the art work. Thank you so much for understanding our beautiful dog.”


Our photographer Lorraine takes this information and plans the photography session around your individual requirements, to make sure we can get the best out of you and your fur babies on the day of your session, whether your pet is an outgoing friendly type or a shy, reserved character. We also discuss the display products that you are interested in and that we feel will suit your tastes and the emotions captured, so you can have a realistic expectation on prices.



The Photography Session

The photography session is all about creating an environment in which your fur babies can thrive, and re-create those special moments you want to remember forever. Our studio is purpose built to ensure we can capture those moments, whether it is your pup playing and jumping excitedly, your cat sleeping at the foot of your bed, or your friend snuggled on your lap or by your feet.

“Wow, cannot describe how amazing this is. Wonderful experience and I will cherish my beautiful art work for a lifetime. I can’t thank you enough, Lorraine and the Zoo Studio Team!”

Two hours is allocated for each session and we always work at your pet’s pace. We allow plenty of time for your pet to become familiar with the photographer, the camera and our studio environment. We also provide 100% natural and healthy treats and toys to play with during the session.

The shoot is all about capturing your pet’s playful, adorable, mischievous and totally lovable personality in Zoo Studio’s signature style. It’s a fun, easy-going and relaxed environment where it’s play time for them, you and us! The session is more than taking photos, it’s a celebration of a life, whether it is a kitten with their life to live, or an older dog with a life to remember.

The Design and Ordering Consultation

A week after your photography session, you are invited back to our Milton Road studio to view your photos in our cinematic five star design consultation room and place your order. This is where all the preparation and work comes together; you select the photos you love most, view them in mock-ups of our various wall art designs and collection so you can see what they will look like on your own walls. It is important that all decision makers attend this session as this is where your order is placed. 

“Thank you all so much! The love and care you have shown us and our fur baby has been amazing! Our art work is gorgeous and I can’t wait to hang them in our home.”



During your viewing, our design consultant will present 30–40 images to captivate and inspire you. Our design consultant will also work with you to design and create your perfect collection of favourite images and/or wall displays. Your collection will showcase your pet family for years to come.
