While we are currently not shooting, we are still creating here at Paws + Tails Pet Photography.  One of my favorites are these cute Watercolor Artworks that can be created from a photograph either taken by myself, if you've had a session with me or by a cell phone image (be sure to check out the information on this when you click the button below) that you've taken of your fur-kids.  

These fun creations are paw-spired by watercolor paintings and have a textured background.  I can transform your image from a simple photo into a unique digital piece of watercolor art. You will receive the digital file ready to print or share on social media as you wish.

To order, simply click the button below and fill out the form and be sure to upload your photo and I will transform it into a beautiful custom digital piece of watercolor art. 

These digital creations are available only for a limited time for $25 per image.

A Paws + Tails Pet Photography experience is fully customizable to create images that capture your fur-kids unique personality. Working on-location throughout the North Island, we will create custom artwork that will look gorgeous in your home and make your tail wag every time you walk by it.

 

Our session fees work a bit differently, namely – there are not any! The Port Paws + Tiny Paws sessions have a non-refundable reservation retainer to hold a space for your session. Magically, 100% of that reservation retainer transforms into a product credit during our Reveal Session!

The Process

Hello!

I do believe we are lucky to have one of the most spectacular + wild backdrops in our own backyards here in the Tri-Ports. From ancient forests to rocky beaches and everything in between.  When you first contact me, I'll send you a quick questionnaire, along with a little information about me + a product catalog.  The more information you give me, the more I can customize your photoshoot so you have a good idea about what you want out of your session and together we'll make the magic happen!

  

Meet + Treat

 

During your Meet + Treat session we will get all the finer details sorted out, like locations and what you are looking for for your session + home afterward and we'll even get all the paperwork signed so that when your session day comes, all you have to do is simply relax, have fun + be in the moment with your fur-kids. 

During the Meet + Treat is also a great time for me to introduce myself + my camera to your fur-kid to ensure a less stressful session day and learn they can trust this stranger + the camera.

Session Day!

Session Day is all about 1 thing.  Relaxing and enjoying the moment while we capture some amazing memories of you and  your fur-kids.

Before your session day arrives, I'll be sure to send you some great tips + tricks on how to best prepare you and your pet for your special day!

 

If you'd like to be in some of the images too, no problem! There is no rush during your session, we'll take as much time that is needed to make sure we get the best results.

After your Session Day is finished, I'll head straight to my digital darkroom to check out the images and apply some digital darkroom magic to them. This usually takes two to three weeks to complete.

The Big Reveal

Once I'm done working in the digital darkroom, I'll reach out to schedule your Reveal session at Paws + Tails Pet Photography HQ.

 

During your appointment, we will view your images, enjoy some treats, laugh and possibly cry just a little bit and choose your favorites that we will use to create some stunning artwork for your walls and I'll place your order with the Lab. 

Lab order time can vary depending on the product and can take 7-30 days, but I will be in touch with you every step of the way and let you know the time estimates during your Reveal Session.

Delivery Day!

Once your beautiful artwork arrives, I will be sure to set up a meeting once more here at Paws + Tails Pet Photography HQ where we can gush over all your gorgeous new artwork, albums, gifts, you can ask any questions and more while enjoying some treats. 

Products

All my products are from high-quality professional labs just for professional photographers.  These products are archival quality and will last a lifetime.  Your artwork comes finished, ready to display products that you can start enjoying the day you pick them up.

Whether you order huge canvas of your fur-kids hanging out on their favorite beach, a stunning heirloom album to keep forever, or a stunning acrylic block to perch on your desk at work, we can customize your order so you get exactly what’s important to you.

Paws + Tails Pet Photography is located in magnificent Port Alice BC and specializes in candid, natural light pet photography.  As a lifestyle pet photographer, I photograph dogs, horses, cats and all kinds of critters on location on the picturesque North Island.
