Step #1: Phone Chat

When you reach out to me, we will book a time to chat on the phone or meet at my Owen Sound studio. During this call you enlighten me on everyones personalities & your photo vision.  You then learn what a photo experience is like with me (hehe fun). This is the perfect time to see if Candra Schank Photography is a good fit for you and your vision.

Step #2: Preparation Time

The preparation time is the time leading up to your fun & fabulous photo session. I will send you a series of emails and videos to prepare you on:

“There are many wonderful places in the world, but one of my favourite places is on the back of my horse.”

Step #3: Your Photo Session

This is a fun & stress-free experience you, your pet and family have been preparing for! Throughout the session, I will be taking action, candids and posed portraits.

For Pet & Equine Sessions: During outside sessions, your dog or horse will be on lead to keep them focused and safe. Don’t worry though, I am gifted in Photoshop and magically make leads disappear. If we are in a location where you feel confident your dog can be off leash.

Filling Your Home With Memories

There are two best things about a photo session, the memories you create & the portraits that fill your home with happiness.

pet photo albumWhen you’re interested in a Photo album, I photograph your pet playing, cuddling, scratching ears, that adorable head tilt, and much more.

Gallery Wrapped Canvas Wall Art

horse gallery

Yes, you read it right. They are framed! I love the polished and finished look of a
framed canvas. And I want you to have them too. Framed canvases are versatile
and look great in every home. All canvases are laminated to reduce fading.

Canvas Wall Art is priced from $200.

Collections start at $795

Framed Print Wall Art

Okay, this is my favourite…and my clients’ favourite. Whether you’re looking for a modern or traditional feel, framed wall art easily achieves that. Simply by changing the colour or style of frame will complete the look you are going for. Personally, I think a simple white frame looks good anywhere, but I also offer black and many more looks and styles.

Portraits are printed on fine art paper, mounted, laminated and presented behind
acrylic or glass with a dust backing to seal the wall art. I will recommed acrylic coverings as it’s light and won’t shatter. This is important in homes with active dogs, cats or even children as wall art can sometimes be knocked off the wall 😉

Framed Wall Art is priced from $200

Collections start at $795

Acrylic Wall Art

This is why I offer matching high resolution files with all wall art purchased. mages are provided as high-resolution 300dpi digital image files in jpg format. Every image is professionally retouched and formatted so that you can print them yourself. You can also invest in a USB with all the digital files.  Inquire for more information
