Pet Portraits

At McAuley Studios we simply love our canine friends!  Let us create a work of art with your best friend. We welcome all dogs from the over excitable to the nervous or shy.  We will take our time to let your dog get used to their new surroundings and ease them into the session to make it enjoyable for everyone.

If you’re coming for a family portrait, don’t forget the hairiest member of the clan! Let us capture their true character and the special relationship between you.

Last month I celebrated my 50th birthday. After some deliberation, my husband Mike and I came to the conclusion that a portrait photograph of our beloved dog Dougie, would be the perfect gift. As soon as you enter McAuley Studios you instantly feel very at home and know that you’re in for a really pleasant experience. The thought that the owner Claire has put into the layout is immediately obvious. Her work is on display around the studio and one cannot fail to be instantly impressed. It feels so welcoming but at the same time it is clearly a highly professional setup. The session with Dougie was incredibly enjoyable and the photos produced from it were nothing short of FABULOUS. We were so delighted with them that we ended up buying a second 30” frame for my husband’s 60th birthday in March! We would highly recommend McAuley Studios for anyone considering professional photography and are constantly “singing Claire’s praises” to everyone who sees and appreciates her work in our two beautiful photographs of Dougie. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Claire, she is a really lovely person and a very talented photographer.

‘We had an absolutely fabulous experience. My wife and I visited with our gorgeous and very playful boxer dog. As we arrived we wondered how we would get her to sit long enough to pose for photographs. Claire ran the shoot and was simply fantastic. She somehow managed to captivate our dog, and make her look like a total professional – posing for the camera. Needless to say, the photographs were amazing and the beautiful frame work just created the perfect piece for our living room wall. We would like to thank Claire for her warm reception, fun shoot and wonderful final product. We can highly recommend for any family portraits – with or without a furry baby!’
