Your pets are not ‘like family’, they are family. They become our best friends- keeping our secrets and never judging us. We believe in celebrating this bond through photographs that will last long after they outgrow the puppy stage.
All pets allowed- dogs, cats, horses, spiders, snakes…
While our clients are usually dog owners, we love all animals and we’re willing to create sessions that capture your bond while keeping your pet safe if your pet doesn’t wear a leash.
Your Portrait Experience
It all starts with a cup of coffee…
All our sessions start with a complimentary consultation. This is where we’ll meet to discuss your pet and the goals for the session. Do you want to be in the photos? Is there a special phrase that gets a reaction- treat, play, etc… Is there an ideal location? I always suggest going to a familiar location. Your home is always the safest location for pet photos.
Your session will last about an hour. Every pet requires a different approach but safety is our biggest priority. Dogs will enjoy playing with their owners. Cats will enjoy an unlimited amount of treats. Some animals will be photographed with minimal interaction.
A week after your session, you’ll visit our studio to review your images. Our ordering process is simple- you chose the images that speak to your heart and order the sizes you need. If you’d like guidance, we’ll happily give our opinions- no icky sales tactics, I promise!Most animals are happier photographed in their own environment. I would be happy to visit your home and/or farm to create your pet’s portraits.
Let’s talk numbers…
Our on-location sessions start at $250. In-studio sessions start at $100. The session fee secures your date on my calendar. After your session, the session fee is applied as a credit toward your print purchase. Every pet owner’s needs are different but most of our clients invest $500-1000 in their portraits.
THE BIG QUESTION- Is Katie a dog person or a cat person?
I’ve always considered myself a cat person, mostly due to my independent and introverted personality. I have two kitties- Tony and Jack- that like to curl up with me as I sleep but otherwise do their own thing. On the other hand, I can’t resist babytalking and playing outside with my two rescue mutts- Lady and Bruno. So I guess I’m both!
