Non traditional posing
I capture the personality of your dog and the relationship they have with you, their human.
We start with a design consultation. At the consultation, I spend time with you and your dog so we can learn more about your dog's personality and your life together. We also discuss your session and plan out what we are going to do.
I find that your dog will settle in more easily the day of the session if we spent some time together at the consultation.
Posing for a portrait
Photo sessions are typically in the studio, but can be on location.
They can be any length, although an hour and a half is a typical length. This time includes any time needed for your pup to settle in.
Up to three dogs are included in the session fee. There is a $20 fee for each additional animal.
Fun in the park
LOCATION PHOTO SESSIONS
Location sessions can be in your home, your backyard, a park or other location.
When considering a location, think about how much control you have of your dog outside of a confined area and whether or not they can be off leash. Also consider if your dog can ignore distractions (think squirrels) that might be at a location.
Location session pricing is based on the length of time, plus any travel time and extra equipment needs.
Kittens and other animals are welcome
VIEWING / ORDERING APPOINTMENT
These are scheduled about a week or so after your session.
We start with a slide show
of the best images from your session. Sit back and enjoy the show! I will also show you suggestions for wall portraits, as well as designs for wall collections and storyboards.
This is the time when you place your order.
Portrait ready for framing
I also offer framing for your wall portraits, wall collections and storyboards. I have a variety of samples in different styles for you to look at in our studio.
Most people like to wait to look at framing until after their wall portraits are finished. They find it easier to select a frame that complements their portraits when the finished portrait is there with the frame samples.
Some session packages include a $100 credit to be used towards your purchase of wall portraits, wall portrait collections, albums, cards or any of our other products.
No images are included with your session package except those that may be purchased with your session package credit.
