FAQ
  • How many pets can I include in a pet photography session?
    The number of pets and subjects that can be included in a session varies depending on the type of session you choose. Please visit our Services page to see the specific details for each session, including the maximum number of pets and subjects allowed. If you have any questions or need a custom solution, feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to help!
  • What if my pet is anxious or fearful in new situations?
    Don't worry, my friend! I totally get it. Some pets can be a little (or a lot) nervous in new situations, and that's totally okay! I'm here to help your furry friend feel comfortable and relaxed, so we can capture their true personality and spirit. Before our session, we'll have a special Meet + Treat Session, where we'll hang out, get to know each other, and take care of all the paperwork. This way, your pet will feel more at ease with me and my camera, and we can start our session on the right paw! During our session, I'll be totally tuned in to your pet's cues and pace, and use all the positive reinforcement tricks in the book - think treats, toys, and praise galore! - to encourage them and capture their natural expressions. And, I'll choose a location that's just right for your pet's personality and preferences, so they feel happy and relaxed. So, no need to worry, my friend! We'll take things at your pet's pace, and make sure they feel comfortable and loved every step of the way. Let's get ready to capture some amazing memories!
  • How long does a typical pet photography session last?
    Great question! The length of a pet photography session can vary, depending on the type of session you choose and the number of pets and subjects involved. Generally, our sessions can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours. For more details on each session, be sure to check out our Services page!
  • What's the best attire for a pet photography session?
    Get ready to strut your stuff and show off your style! When it comes to dressing for a pet photography session, the most important thing is to wear what makes you and your pet feel comfortable and confident. Whether you're going for a casual, formal, or festive look, make sure it reflects your personality and style. For your pet, accessorize with fun items like collars, bandanas, bows, or hats to add some extra flair to their look. Just be sure to avoid anything that might irritate or distract them, like costumes, masks, or props. When choosing your outfits, consider the location and season of the session. For example, bright and warm colors are perfect for summer or spring sessions, while dark and cool colors are great for winter or fall. And don't forget to choose colors that complement the background - like green for a cityscape or blue for a forest. Some extra tips to keep in mind: Avoid colors that blend in with the background, like brown for a park or white for a snowscape. Steer clear of colors that clash with your pet's fur, like red for a black dog or yellow for a brown cat. Opt for solid colors over prints, stripes, or weird patterns, as they can distract from your pet's adorable face and expression. By following these tips, you'll be sure to create a stylish and memorable pet photography session that showcases your furry friend's unique personality!
  • Can I join my pet in the pet portraits?
    Absolutely, and I highly recommend it! In fact, I always make sure to capture at least one photo of you with your pet during our session - and it's often the client's favorite image (shhh, don't tell!). Joining your pet in the portraits makes the experience more enjoyable and meaningful for both of you, and allows me to capture the special bond and connection that you share. Don't worry if you're shy or don't want your face in the photo - there are many ways to capture the moment without showing your face! We can do a waist-down shot with your pup beside you, or a peek-a-boo image with your pup peeking over your shoulder. We can even get creative with angles and poses to make sure you're comfortable and happy with the final result. The goal is to celebrate your relationship with your pet and create treasured memories that will last a lifetime. So, don't be shy - get in on the fun and snuggle up with your furry friend!
  • How far in advance should I book a pet photography session?
    It's essential to book your pet photography session well in advance, as my schedule fills up quickly, especially during peak seasons like holidays and weekends. To ensure you get your preferred date and time, I recommend booking at least 2 to 4 weeks in advance. However, if you're looking to create special holiday gifts or have an urgent request, please book even earlier to guarantee availability. Booking in advance is crucial, as weather conditions play a significant role in my shooting schedule. By planning ahead, we can ensure optimal weather conditions for your session. Additionally, if you're looking to create beautiful artwork or gifts for special occasions, booking early allows me sufficient time to order and deliver your artwork, so you can enjoy it on time. Don't wait until the last minute - book your session today and let's capture those precious moments with your furry friend!
  • What sets your pet photography apart?
    Ah, great question! My pet photography is more than just a photo shoot - it's an experience that captures the heart and soul of your furry companion. I'm not just snapping pictures; I'm crafting a celebration of your pet's unique spirit, quirks, and the unbreakable bond you share. Each session is a personalized tribute to your pet's sparkling personality, preserved in stunning, archival-quality artwork that will be treasured for generations. My approach is all about understanding what makes your pet tick, and capturing the joy, love, and magic they bring to your life. What drives me is a personal passion, born from my own journey with my beloved cat Poly-Ana, who left for the rainbow bridge in 2022. Her legacy lives on through my photography, and I'm dedicated to honoring the love and connection we shared. For me, pet photography isn't just a job - it's a way of life. I'm committed to creating an experience that's as meaningful as it is fun, and delivering artwork that will make your heart skip a beat. So, let's capture the essence of your furry friend, and create a legacy that will be cherished forever!
  • How do you capture the personality and spirit of my pet in the pet photography?
    That's the million-dollar question! Capturing the essence of your pet's personality and spirit is my top priority. To do this, I take a personalized approach that starts with getting to know your furry friend before and during the session. First, we'll have a Meet + Treat Session, where I'll learn all about your pet's unique character, likes, dislikes, and quirks. This helps me tailor the session to their individual needs and preferences. During the session, I'll follow their cues and pace, using positive reinforcement techniques like treats, toys, and praise to bring out their natural expressions and personality. With my expertise and creative eye, I'll then use a variety of angles, perspectives, lighting, and techniques to craft stunning, artistic images that showcase your pet's spirit and beauty. My goal is to capture the spark in their eye, the wag in their tail, and the love in their heart - and preserve it all in beautiful, archival-quality artwork.
  • What if my pet is uncooperative during the session?
    Don't fret, my friend! If your furry companion decides to go rogue during our session, I'm totally prepared. With my expertise and patience, I've got the skills to tame even the most mischievous of pets (just kidding, I love them just the way they are!). Seriously, though, I've worked with all sorts of pets, and I know that sometimes they just need a little extra love and understanding. I'll never force your pet to pose or do anything that makes them uncomfortable. Instead, I'll use positive reinforcement like treats, toys, and praise to encourage them to be their fabulous selves. And if they need a break or a snuggle, we'll take it nice and slow. My goal is to make our session a paw-some experience for both you and your pet. So, relax, and let's capture those precious moments together!
  • Why invest in a pet photography session?
    Investing in a pet photography session is a paw-some decision that will bring you joy, happiness, and cherished memories for years to come! Here's why: You'll capture your pet's unique personality and spirit in stunning, artistic images that will make your heart melt. You'll celebrate the unbreakable bond you share with your pet, creating memories that reflect your special relationship.
