If you are a pet lover interested in photography services,
With years of professional experience working with dogs, you can trust that your session will be a positive, fun, and safe experience for both you and your dog!
A professional trainer and pet photographer will work with both you and your dog to capture the perfect images. Is your dog a little wild? Don't worry! We have it covered! You can relax and feel confident that we will capture stunning images of your pet.
Understanding dog behavior allows us to meet their needs, while also motivating them to be the best doggy models they can be! We are able to work with your dog in a way that will ensure their comfort and participation in the session. The end result is more than just beautiful photographs, but mementos of the experiences and bond you share with your dog!

The First Step
The first step is a friendly conversation about your pet and your goals for the session. We discuss the details to make sure your session is built around what is important to you. I will answer any questions you may have and we will choose a good time and location for your session. Once we book your session, I will send a session guide to your email. The session guide includes everything you need to know about your session, and some optional tips to make the most out of the experience.
When you arrive to the session location, I want to make sure both you and your pet are comfortable. I will introduce myself to your dog, and allow them to check out my equipment. Once they are comfortable, we will begin the session.
I will direct your dog into specific locations and positions in order to get a variety of images. Don't worry if it doesn't seem like they are cooperating at first, it is perfectly normal for the dogs to sniff EVERYTHING before transforming into the doggy model we are asking them to be. I do not place a time limit on my sessions. Have fun, and don't worry if your dog is over excited or distracted. This is a brand new and fun experience for them! We want to capture those organic silly moments too! Time spent with a dog is never wasted!
Your images will be ready to view within 1-2 weeks of your session, however if you need your images sooner I do offer priority processing as an option. Just let me know during your booking :)
Once I have a final selection of images that have been professionally retouched, we will meet either in person or via zoom to view them. Depending on the package you chose when booking, you will select the images and products you would like to purchase. Some packages include a print credit to spend on wall art. Yay shopping! Don't worry, I will help you choose the best products for your needs.
Once you have made your selections, I will process the final edits of your images, and apply any finishing touches. I am lucky enough to work with some of the best printing providers in the world to offer a variety of unique and exclusive products. Physical products will be shipped directly to your home and are 100% guaranteed.
Your dog CAN do that! ALL dogs can!
Sometimes I don't get the dogs to sit still AT ALL, but that's OK! They may be fast, but my camera is faster! With years of experience working with dogs, I have become very proficient in canine body language which allows me to anticipate their movements. In my opinion the best shots are the ones that are naturally perfect, not overly posed. So I will use this to my advantage! For example, I know if you sit your dog and walk behind them towards me, 99.9% of the time I will get the really cute looking over their shoulder shot!
While I can also give you lots of tips and tricks to get a better sit or down stay, it is definitely NOT a requirement for pet photography.
I can always edit out the leash in post production. Most of my sessions are done on leash. Please feel free to also bring a long leash, or let me know you would like to get some running around / play shots. I almost always have a long leash in my car :)
Do not ever feel pressured to take your dog off leash unless you are 110% confident that your dog is off leash trained. Safety is always #1 priority.
Another fun option is to have the session at a Sniffspot location. Sniffspot is an app that offers private dog park rentals. They are usually private properties that the owner rents out to dogs and their owners for a small fee.
Generally final images will be delivered within 2 weeks of your session date. However, if you have a special request or need 1 or 2 images by a certain date I will always do my best to accommodate!
Yes, I will ONLY work with RESPONSIBLE & ETHICAL pet businesses and breeders. I diligently research any business I work with.
We love being involved in the community, and working with local pet businesses. If you are a part of a rescue or local business that could benefit from photography services please contact us! We often partner with local business to host events, contest, and more for the pet community.
