At Your Session

The day has finally arrived!

When you arrive, introductions will be made to you and your pet. The photographer will try to get an idea of your pet's personality, and then start taking photos to capture it! We will try a variety of poses and looks and actions, depending on the length of time and type of session you have booked. We may use natural light, or we may use supplemental lighting.

You may be concerned about how your pet will behave during the session. If you have several weeks before your session, it can't hurt to touch up a dog's sit/lay down/stay commands, if possible! However, pet photographers realize that most pets are not professional models, and may not be perfectly trained! We will work with you to get great photos no matter what. Our main concern is that our clients and their pets, our photographers, and our equipment is safe throughout the shoot; we will strive to make your session a great experience!
