I'd seen several examples of Karen's amazing work but with an 8-month-old puppy who is full of energy and into every new smell, I fully expected to have to wait until he was a lot older, but how wrong I was! Sammy did explore Karen's studio, and I couldn't see how we'd come away with anything other than blurred images, but she was so patient and 'in tune' with how animals behave that very soon Sammy looked like he was at home, and very relaxed. Karen not only puts us humans at ease, she knew which shots would bring out the best in Sammy and boy did she get them! Very very happy (and proud) Dad/owner, and I'd urge any pet owner to get in touch with Karen and pop along with your four-legged friend, you won't be disappointed!


I am so thrilled with the photos that you took of Ginny. You captured her perfectly, I wanted to have a record of her as a puppy and your pictures are exactly what I hoped for. Thank you for being so patient, a 3 month old Labrador puppy – particularly such a lively youngster – is not the easiest subject I’m sure. Your studio is the perfect place although I hope she didn’t leave too much damage behind her, I’m afraid that she enjoyed shredding some of your props! The end results of the shoot are beautiful and will provide us with happy memories for many years. Thank you again.  Jo and Ginny

I was looking for a photograph to capture the character of my three Labradors, who are each very different, in one shot. Karen took her time in the studio with three intrigued dogs then suggested a walk and perhaps a swim (Brave lady) Karen didn't hesitate to slip on her waders and get right in on the action. The moments she captured will make us smile for many years and I can't thank and recommend her enough. The hardest part was trying to choose our favourite, as there were so many of such great quality.

Dear Karen, Essentially, we waited until we were sitting on a warm sandy beach at sunset and we opened the beautiful book. It is amazing; you are a very skilled artist. Thank you so much, Robin and Claudia

Thank you for the beautiful album, so unusual how it has been compiled, making our event even more memorable. Did people wonder what you were doing on the beach creating 55 in the stones? You really got the feel of Aldeburgh with the extra shots. Thanks for making something we will always treasure. Shirley & Ian
