SESSIONS

ABOUT YOUR SESSION

Looking for a pet portraiture experience that’s guaranteed to pamper your pet as much as you do? We can make beautiful images together without any worry about your pet’s age, personality or level of training. After all, a portrait session should be about having fun and capturing your furry friend’s true spirit and uniqueness.

With a full complement of professional animal handling experience, camera gear and lenses, squeaky toys, tennis balls and yummy treats, memorializing your pet’s personality will be a day to remember.

After our session, your final images will have leashes and other distractions removed during the post-production phase, resulting in art guaranteed to make your heart melt.

Want to add humans to your images? I always encourage families to join in the photo fun. Pets are part of the family, so families are more than welcome!

What is it that makes your relationship to your pet so special?

The pre-session consult typically happens over the phone or via email, but can also occur in person if your pet is reserved around strangers and we should get to know each other before our big day.

As we plan our session, I’ll gather information about your pet and his or her likes and dislikes.

What motivates your furry friend? What are his or her favorite places and activities? Will the family be joining in for some images?

We’ll discuss the type of artwork you envision and tailor our session and images with the end goal in mind.

Investment

While individual investments can vary greatly, most clients typically invest several hundred dollars or more above their session fee on their selected artwork. The amount you choose to invest is completely up to you. Buy only the items that you love!

Albums start at $500 and wall art $700. All wall art arrives framed and ready to hang in your home or office.  Albums and other keepsakes are individually designed just for you.
