I offer three different pet sessions designed to fit your personal needs from start to finish. Review each session below and find what fits best for you, or just give me a call so I can help you choose the right session. Here’s how it works:
1. Select a Session
Choose from one of three different sessions listed below. Consider how many pets you want photographed, the number of locations, your budget, and artwork desired for display. Once you have decided, fill out this brief questionnaire so I can get to know your pet. I’ll be in touch with you shortly.
Mini Session – $150
This session is perfect for those looking for a few great photos of their pet and don’t need the full Signature Session. This works well if you want a photo for your Christmas cards taken or just want to update that canvas hanging on your wall.
Signature Session – $250
Designed for the pet looking for a fun “field trip” to the beach or park. I’ll capture a variety of images of your pet running, jumping, swimming, and smiling. You and your family are welcome to be included in any of the shots as well. This session may also take place at your home or anywhere they are the most comfortable.
Puppy’s First Year Sessions – $700
Puppies naturally have a carefree spirit and an adorable way of exploring the world that make for great photos. They grow so quickly, you’ll want to capture those moments before its gone. The first session typically takes place after your puppy has completed all of their puppy shots. Or if you opt for a home session, this can be done at anytime.
2. Choose a Location and Date
After looking through your pet questionnaire, we will discuss your pet in depth, photo shoot ideas, locations, and what goals you’d like to accomplish during our time together. Most of the time, this is done over the phone, although we can meet in person as well. At this time I’ll show you examples of previous photo shoots, and our beautiful, archival-quality print products. Once we schedule the best date, time, and location for your session, I require a $100 deposit to reserve your date. You’ll then receive a photography contract and email outlining the next steps.
3. Enjoy your Session
During our time together, you can expect a fun, professional experience. With years of experience as a pet owner as well as a photographer, I understand it may take some extra time and loads of patience to get a perfect shot. I’ll bring toys and treats, and work with you and your pet in a relaxed, natural way. My goal is to capture the essence of your pet (and their humans) so often they are the ones setting the pace of the session.
4. View and Order Your Pictures
Within two weeks of your photoshoot we’ll meet to go over your images, discuss your artwork goals, and check out the product samples. This normally takes place in your home so we can easily choose images that fit your interior decoration goals or make that perfect gift for a family member. A variety of product collections and payment plans are available. There is no order-minimum, so you don’t have to worry about any high-pressure sales tactics. All images you see will be retouched to perfection. Meaning leashes that were kept on during your session and any distracting background clutter will be removed.
Your artwork will be hand delivered within 4 weeks of your order consultation.
