Custom pet portraiture sessions are a fun way to ensure that you have visible memories of your beloved pet forever. You will cherish the photos from your session for years to come. We’ll work together to produce amazing photos of your pet. All sessions are on-location, at your home, a nearby dog park, or any other place that is near and dear to your heart. I highly recommend using  somewhere that your dog is familiar with and will not get overly excited. Check out the sessions below and please contact me if  you have any questions! Please note session fees do not include digital images or products. Product pricing can be found here.

Celebration Session ~ $350


Celebration sessions are pet sessions for ill or elderly pets. Few things will ever be harder than saying goodbye to your four-legged family member. I believe one last photo session to celebrate your pets life and their time with you is something pet parents will greatly appreciate and I’m proud to offer it.

 

These uniquely intimate sessions are a somber, but beautiful time for you and your pet that focus on your loving relationship. I will come to your home where your pet is most comfortable to take the photos. I encourage you to just sit and enjoy your pet and let me capture the moments as they happen. It can be a hard and emotional time, but these photos will be cherished once the heart has had some time to heal.

 

These sessions are priced at a reduced rate and I do not limit the number of photos you receive. From our hour long session, you will receive all of the photos that turn out well, which usually ends up being about 30 photos or so. I can usually get these photos edited and sent to you in only a few business days.

 

I understand that sometimes, these sessions must be scheduled on short notice, which is completely fine. My evenings are usually reserved for photoshoots and I will gladly make room for you in this difficult time. As a fellow pet owner, it is an honor offer this service and to provide you with these special photos with your pet.

 

The session fee includes:

      • Photographer’s time and talent
      • Approximately 1 hour of shooting at your home
      • At least 25 fully edited photos
      • Online Gallery active for 1 month after delivery
      • All 4×6 proofs
      • 10 high resolution digital files of your choice
