FANCY FUR-TOS HOLLYWOOD STYLE FLOOFY FRAMES CAPTURED CUTIES FURRY FAMILY
Have you chosen the furry form over small humans?
If you're anything like me, your little floof means everything to you. What better way to immortalise your furry family member than dressing up, chucking a 'pose' and hanging a big old print of them right up there on your loungeroom wall.
So how does it work?
I can’t recommend Shaina Shoots highly enough!
Shaina is an animal lover and made us feel instantly comfortable for our 1 hour photoshoot. She has such a way with animals that meant my excitable pooch was posing like a pro in no time. I’m so grateful to have such special memories to keep forever, thank you Shaina!

Shaina made me, my partner and our pooch feel super relaxed and at ease during our session with her. We had so much fun and the photos turned out beautifully! We feel so lucky to have those memories with our dog captured on film forever.
THE STORY OF SHAINA SHOOTS
Born in Napier, New Zealand I was a tiny 18 months old when my folks decided to haul ass to Perth where I grew up. As soon as I turned 18 I was on the first flight to Melbourne and never looked back. (Don't get me wrong, Perth has great beaches and...)
Photography started in the darkroom when I was 15. I loved everything about it, from manually rolling film into cannisters to developing the prints by hand. When I got to Melbourne, I had one suitcase of clothes and a Pentax SLR.
I started out shooting live gigs for publications like Beat Magazine and Queensland-based zine, Deadbeat. I dabbled in food photography, construction photography and fashion photography before landing on weddings and pets! People wanted candid photography and I just so happened to have a knack for it!
I'm an advocate for animal rights, senior dog adopter and a little bit of a potty mouth.
If you're looking for a cheap deal and thousands of photos, chances are, we're not a good fit
Unlike a lot of pet photographers, I shoot solely on film! I manually develop all my film in house and even print them in my studio. This takes a little more time than your standard digital photography and requires a decent knowledge of equipment and chemistry.
Film photography can't be replicated, it has a romantic touch that you simply won't find in digital photography.
