A young boy who recently lost his dog said, "People are here on this planet to learn to love. Dogs already know how to love so they don't have to stay as long".
So, why is this important? If you or a family member has a pet who you love, do yourself and the rest of the family a big favor, and take the time now to acquire that special portrait of your loved family member and you. You will never regret it.
Choose to have the portraits taken in our studio or an outdoor location of your choice (within 20 miles of our studio). If you choose to have the portraits taken outdoors, the best time of day is late afternoon/early evening (about 3 hours before sunset. The average session can take up to 60 minutes but depending on the pet could be as little as 30-45 minutes. If you choose to do the portraits in our studio, anytime of day will work. If you have any special requests, please let us know at the beginning of the session so that we can accommodate your request. There is no additional charge for multiple people or pets. I encourage you to bring your pets favorite toys or treats to help them feel more secure. However, we do have toys and treats available if needed.
Tips for a great pet portrait session
Pets should be professionally groomed prior to the photo day. Pets should be bathed, brushed, and free of flees. try to keep your pet's hair out of their eyes.
Keep your pets cool and calm. Panting does not look pretty in pictures.
Please make sure your pet has gone to the bathroom prior to the photo shoot.
Feel free to bring your own toys and props.
If there are two or more people in the photo, dress in similar colors and non-competing patterns. Please do not wear solid black clothes if your pet is black or solid white clothes if your pet is white. Remember this is a pet portrait, not a family portrait session.
Please inform us upfront if your pet is a biter.
Have fun !
