We’re officially in autumn now and the Christmas cakes have appeared in Marks & Spencer’s already, so I’m not feeling guilty about mentioning planning your festive gifts for your pet-loving nearest and dearest. If you are thinking about treating someone to a beautiful visual record of their beloved cat, dog or other animal, here are my Christmas order deadlines for this year and some of them are only a month away.  (All your finished items are custom designed and checked by me, handmade by my professional suppliers then checked again before they get sent to you, which is why we don’t have turnaround times quite so fast as Amazon!)


Albums – Friday 12 October

Framed prints, canvasses and presentation folders and boxes – Friday 9 November

Gift prints – Friday 4 December

Digital downloads – Wednesday 19 December

Gift vouchers – Thursday 20 December

Last pet photo shoot date to order for Christmas

Sunday 4 November

If your shoot’s after then, an alternative is to send your “giftee” the gallery with a voucher for them to choose their own photo to be ready after Christmas. Or there are always gift vouchers, which are really popular as they’re valid for a year so the recipient’s got plenty of time to schedule their photo shoot.

Have fun planning your Christmas and if you need any advice or ideas on what gifts to get with your photos, get in touch.
