Your Zoo Studio Experience

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 Ordering and Design Consultation.

Part One of the journey is completed when you take possession of your stunning photographic wall art and display them on your walls in your home. We hope you continue your journey each day as you reconnect with your precious moments captured in time in your stunning photographic wall art and keep in touch on our Facebook page.

We are all pet lovers at Zoo Studio, just like you.

Step One


The first stage of your 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 their unique and individual personalities you would love us to capture.

We also want to discover more about where you would love to display your photographic wall art so we can provide you with more meaningful information on prices and wall art suggestions. We do this via telephone conversations or face to face consultations at our Port Melbourne studio. We also post you your booking confirmation welcome pack with your appointment card, map and general T&C’s.

Our photographer Lorraine takes this information and plans your photography experience 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 studio session, whether your pet is an outgoing friendly type or a shy, reserved character. We also discuss your wall art display options 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.

Step Two


Your 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 your precious moments, whether it is your pup playing and jumping excitedly, your cat sleeping at the foot of your bed, or your fur family snuggled on your lap or by your feet.

The time spent in each photography session is dedicated to you and your fur baby. Your fur baby is the centre of our attention and we always work at your pet’s pace. We allow plenty of time for your pet to become familiar with our photographer, the camera and our studio environment. We also provide 100% natural and healthy treats and toys to play with during the session.

Your studio session is all about capturing your pet’s playful, adorable, mischievous and totally lovable personality and character 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.

“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!”



Step Three


A week after your photography session, you are invited back to our Port Melbourne 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 displayed on your own walls in your home. It is important that all decision makers attend this session as this is where your order is placed and paid for.

During your Ordering and Design Consultation, our design consultant will present the best of the best of your photographs to captivate and inspire you. Our design consultant will also work with you to design and create your perfect collection of favourite photographs and wall art collections. Your collection will showcase your pet family for years to come.
