Can you photograph ALL dogs?
YES! I have had multiple people comment on my photos and say "I wish I could get photos of my dog but....they are nervous, reactive, energetic, ect..." and my response is always "YOU are why I wanted to start this business!"
I believe everyone should be able to have this experience with their dogs, and hope our company can make that possible for anyone who wants to. We keep your pet's comfort and safety at the forefront of our minds when planning sessions. All sessions are private, and we will work with you to make sure it is a fun safe experience.
There is absolutely no judgement. I've heard clients say they were worried they would be embarrassed of their dogs behavior. Trust me, as trainers we have seen it all! We will work with you before your session to prepare yourself and your dog so you can be comfortable and confident.
How will I receive my photos?
After your session, I will go through all images and select the top photos to retouch. I try to include a variety of poses and image styles so you can choose your favorites. Once the editing process is complete I will email you a link to your gallery where you can choose your own photos. Each package includes a specified amount of free downloads, but additional downloads or your full gallery can be purchased for a small fee.
Digital downloads are available in two sizes, the standard size can be printed up to an 8x10 size and the large size can be used for larger prints or home décor.
You can also purchase prints, canvases, and other physical items right through our website! We use a top quality printing provider who will make sure you receive the best quality products! They have direct access to the photos and can make sure no image quality is lost during transfer.
You can also reach out to me with any questions, or if you would like to see samples of any products offered. I will work with you to make sure you can proudly display the art we create!
Do you photograph other pets or kids?
We love photographing the relationship between a child and their dog. It is one of the most beautiful things to capture. Because of the uniqueness of these sessions, it is hard to create a standard package that works for everyone. However, we are more than happy to create a custom session experience for you! If you would like to photograph your children and dogs please contact us to customize your session!
YES we will photograph almost any pet ! As professional dog trainers our expertise is dogs, but we are both animal lovers who have lots of experience with many different types of pets. Photographing pets is a wide spectrum, from horses to reptiles, each species requires different equipment and setup. If you have a pet you would like photographed please contact us for a customized session!
I have never done a dog photoshoot, what can I expect?
I can not speak for all dog photographers, but we emphasize the experience at Pawz To Pose. We want you to think of your session as an experience for you and your dog to enjoy.
Before your session we will collect information from you about your dog and what style of images you are interested in. Then we will choose a location and customize your session to fit your needs. We will also provide you with information on how to prepare for your session to get the most out of the experience.
Once you arrive for your session our trainer will meet your dog(s) and get them engaged and motivated to participate. You can then choose any accessories or props you would like to include in the photos or have us choose them for you throughout the shoot. They will then position your dog and work with the photographer to get the perfect shots of your pup! We will usually take some breaks to play with the dog so they have a fun experience as well. Being a good dog model is hard work ! This also provides us the opportunity for some candid shots.
At the end of the session, the photographer will make sure they have got all the shots they need and ask if there are any specific shots you thought of during the shoot you would like to try, or if you would like a photo of you and your dog to commemorate the experience.
You will receive an email within 3-5 business days (depending on the length of the shoot) to access your custom gallery! We can also send you a link to download a custom photo gallery app upon request!
What if I am unhappy with the photos?
We want all of our clients to be happy with our work, so if for any reason you are dissatisfied we will work with you to make it right! We welcome any and all feedback, and want to make sure our clients are 110% satisfied with the experience!
