Animal Portrait Sessions


I love working with all animals. Our animal friends hold a very special place in my heart. They are really just relatives of our wilder creatures. When I began photographing 'domestic' animals I was blown away by what unfolded in front of the camera. The same techniques that I use with the wild ponies were invaluable. By getting animals to feel really at ease with me and inviting them to share their truest personalities, magic happens. It's a gorgeous experience to be part of helping animals to share who they are most fully.


I've worked with cats, dogs, ponies, sheep, cattle, horses, birds, wild mice and many more...... From the mini to the mighty, I love them all. See Gallery of Wild Hearts for some wilder inspiration. Want to book a session? Give me a shout and contact me here. We love adding to the diverse range of wonderful creatures we're blessed to work with. 


When I'm photographing, there is always a communication involved in the work. Most of all that is about making sure I'm really seeing and feeling who that unique friend of yours is. During a session, I focus initially to create a sense of calm and trust, a place where relaxation and fun can happen. I take a little time getting to know you both as I work away. Once that has been established the photographs flow. This is never about forcing, or tricks to get things to happen. I work intuitively communicating with animals all the time, so this is why I offer something that is a little, niche. I'm flexible, so if you want to involve a direct communication with your animal friend as well as photography then we can work something out. Bespoke sessions are highly recommended and encouraged!

"Good Photography is a rare ... knowing animals well enough to capture their image, even more skillful... imagine being able to sensitively capture portraits of our three pet cats..... Her incredible images managed to capture each of their characters, as if she instinctively knew what they were about to do... and the amazing ability to capture that shot... giving us a lasting loving legacy. Fiona manages to capture, as do all great artists, the spirit, energy & uniqueness in this world. Fiona’s gift is to capture images of the beautiful animals we share on this planet...thanks to her unique skill, we can enjoy this everyday in our home...." Kate Higham, UK
