Frequently Asked Questions
What should I plan on investing?
Reservation fees are $75 for studio sessions and $125 for location sessions. This fee holds your time and date and will be applied to your final order. Collections start at $175 and we have a variety of art products that you may select.
How should I prepare my pet for the session and what should I bring?
Take your pet for a long walk the day of the session. I will have a bowl of water and treats on hand. If your dog or cat has any food sensitivities, you may wish to bring your own treats.
Can I bring props and toys?
Sure! I do have toys and squeakers. However, you may bring a favorite toy or comfort item.
What will happen during my session?
When you first arrive, your pet will have the opportunity to check things out in the studio, meet me, have a treat, and basically just get comfortable.
When we are ready to go, I will capture the awesome personality and character of your pet. I capture all kinds of poses which may include headshots, sitting, standing, playing and even catching a treat.
If you have multiple pets, I will photograph them individually and together. Family members are also welcome to join in on the portrait session.
What if my pet is active or is very shy? Will you still work with me?
Absolutely. We are very patient with animals and ask that you are too. For active pets, many times I will only take one or two images before they are up and moving. That is okay and no one gets in trouble. At times, we also use leads and leashes that are removed from your final image.
If your pet is shy, I will have you on the backdrop with him or her to provide comfort. I can remove you from the image if I need to.
When will I see my images?
We will schedule a time within one week for you to return to view your images and place your order. If you are travelling a distance to the studio or have a busy schedule, we can arrange for viewing and ordering following the session.
Please bring all decision makers to the ordering session.
When will my order be ready?
Prints and digital file orders will be ready within two weeks of when the order is placed. Please allow 3 weeks for album and framed pieces.
