Frequently asked questions

 

What if my dog is not very well behaved and cannot be trusted off leash?

 
 

Please don't worry, we know how to work with untrained dogs with our tried and tested techniques. Training is actually not required for a successful photo session! Believe it or not, most dogs are leashed during the session and we make them disappear during post processing to produce clean, beautiful final images.

 

How many dogs can be photographed in a session?

We accommodate up to three dogs per session at the price of $75 for each additional dog. The surcharge is for spending extra time photographing and editing images of the additional dog. Each additional dog also comes with extra images in the viewing gallery.

If you have more than three dogs, please go to Contact Us and request a custom quote.


 

do you offer gift certificates?

 

Yes, we do! Send us a message via our Contact Us page to custom order your gift certificate. No minimum purchase required.

 

 

CAN I BE photographed WITH MY dog?

Of course, we love capturing the bond between dogs and their owners! We will discuss what you want to get out of your session during the pre-shoot consultation. Keep in mind we do specialize in dog photography so the majority of the session will be focused on your dog.

 

Can we do in-home sessions?

For young puppies, senior dogs, shy dogs, or dogs with mobility issues, a home environment can sometimes be the best option, just as long as there is some open outside space and abundant light. Open shade under trees, awnings, or decks can provide soft, filtered light, while uncluttered rooms with big windows or skylights may be suitable for indoor settings.


 

DO YOU WORK WITH RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS?

Yes, we do, and with pleasure! We strongly believe in giving back to the community and saving as many lives as possible. Please fill out the form under Contact Us if you are looking for a professional pet photographer and dog trainer to take pictures of your shelter dogs. We currently volunteer with Copper's Dream Rescue and Doggie Protective Services.
