Step #1: Complimentary Consultation

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 your pet & families 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:

– What to Wear

– Hints & Tips to prepare you for your session

– Different ways to display your portraits (i.e. canvas, framed, acrylics, albums, wall collections)

– Additional information on pricing

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

– Rolf Kopfle

Step #3: Your Photo Session

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

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.

Sneak Peeks

Heck ya! Woof Woof. Yep, I love sneak peeks as much as you do. With your permission, I pick a few to post on Facebook and Instagram. So don’t forget to follow me.

Step #4 Your At Home Premiere & Ordering Session

2 weeks after your session, I send you an email with a link to your Portrait Slideshow.  Gather your family and dim the lights and relive your session all over again.  You then choose which Digital File Collection you would like to invest in. Each collection includes a set number of digital files & product credit to use towards prints, wall art & albums.

Step #5. Receive your prints, wall art, and photo albums

 Ther’re two best things about a photo session, the memories you create & the portraits that fill your home with happiness.  Your Digital File collections come with a complimentary print credit.  Families order Prints/Wall Art/Albums from the Gallery Shop and about 4 weeks later your products are delivered right to your home.

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 $478.

Collections start at $1500+

Framed Print Wall Art

dog portraitOkay, 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 $478.

Collections start at $1500+

Acrylic Wall Art

dog portraitA NEW product to Candra Schank Photography that will be loved by you.  This is a new and modern way to display your wall art.  Your wall art  will demand attention and elicits a ‘Oh My Goodness’ from friends and family.  

Acrylic prints feature professional high image quality on metallic photographic paper. They have a deeper image effect, smoother refined edges and a more solid black backing.  They easily are a highlight wall art piece to any room.

Acrylic Wall Art is priced from $678.

Collections start at $1500+

High Resolution Digital Images

I love nothing more than to see my client’s images printed and hung on walls. But I also understand the importance of owning the digital files. 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
