Frequently asked questions
What if I just want the digital files?
While the digital files are great for backing up and viewing your images online, they’re not a finished product.In my experience, when the only thing that’s taken home from a session is a disk of files, you’re only getting a small piece of the Paws + Tails Pet Photography experience.
My dog doesn't have much time left. Is there a special session?
I’m so sorry. Our pet’s lives are tragically short. Celebration of Life Sessions is available for those pets that are at the end of their time with us. They are regular on-location sessions, but I make every effort to adjust my schedule to squeeze you in as soon as possible. and during your session, we take all the time necessary to capture you and your dog, and the special bond you share together.
Why should I invest in custom pet photography? It's so expensive!
Do you photograph year round?
Yes! Spring, Summer, Fall + Winter each provide unique backgrounds that could never be duplicated. Weather your pet prefers adventuring in the snow, jumping in the leaves, stopping to smell the flowers or strolling along a sun basked beach – we will capture the moments that matter to you of you and your pet year-round.
What if it rains?
We all know how unpredictable the weather can be living in our beautiful rain forest country! My style of work is hugely dependent on good light and dry conditions. Due to that, if the weather is unfavorable on the day of your session, then we will work on rescheduling your session to another day that suits you and that the weather is more favorable.
What if I need to cancel?
I get it, sometimes life just gets in the way, and emergencies happen. I always try to be accommodating and am willing to reschedule due to personal emergencies up to 2 times. After that, your reservation retainer will be void, and we will have to start the process over again, including a new reservation retainer.
My dog is a little (insert adjective here; hyper, shy, nervous) so he will never cooperate for a session.
Do you only photograph dogs?
No! I love fur-kids of all shapes, sizes, breeds, and colors! From fluffy felines to elegant equines as well as other small animals from time to time as well. And of course, dogs too!
When and how should I book?
As soon as you have decided to go ahead with your booking, get in touch. I can take bookings up to six months in advance (and sometimes my waitlist can take that long so, be sure to contact me as early as you can!). Sessions are often booked 4-6 weeks in advance, except for Celebration of Life Sessions, which are often squeezed in last minute due to the nature of the sessions.
How much are your 8x10's
I do carry regular glossy prints in an 8x10. They are considered a gift or desk print due to their size. They also only come in a set of 5 either mounted on styrene or just as is. They additionally come wrapped in a beautiful boutique folder and a wood photo block to display them on. They are $300.
How long will it take for my photos to be ready?
Usually after your session is complete it takes 2-3 weeks for me to finish working with them in my digital darkroom. Once they're completed we will set up your Reveal Session! Or if it's easier, we can plan out your Reveal Session during your Meet + Treat Session as well.
