Step #1: Meet and greet (a.k.a consultation)

When you reach out to me, we will book a Meet & Greet at my Owen Sound Studio or chat by phone. This is the perfect time for me to get to know you and your pets, and discuss what you’re wanting to achieve from your pet session. And if you’re coming to my studio, please bring your pet(s). I can’t wait to meet them.

Step #2: Book your pet photo session.

During our consultation, we will look at our calendars and schedule your pet session. I like to book your session 3-6 weeks in advance. This gives us lots of time to plan your session. I photograph pet sessions Mon – Sat. Mind you, Saturdays book up fast. Session times very depending on location & season. Generally, studio & at-home sessions are held in the afternoon.  I prefer to book outside sessions in late afternoon or a few hours before sunset – Oh the light is marvellous before sunset.

“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: Pick the perfect location

When we meet or talk on the phone, we will discuss the perfect spot for your pet session. I have some great spots that I love and want to show you.
Sessions can be held:

  • Outside at your pet’s favourite spot
  • At my Owen Sound Studio
  • In your own home.

Sppst! Choosing the location actually plays an important role in the final look of our photos. That’s why I like to work with you to determine the best possible location.

Step #4 Your pet photo session

This is the amazing 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. The session will be a fun & stress free experience for everyone. We will be laughing, interacting & playing with your pet so that their amazing personalities & expressions are revealed.

Generally, your dog will be on lead to keep your dogs focus and safety. Don’t worry though, I am gifted in Photoshop and magically make leashes disappear. If we are in a location where you feel confident your dog can be off leash, we will do some fun recall action shots.

Sneak Peeks

Heck ya! Woof Woof. Yep, I love sneak peeks as much as you do.  So after the session, I hand pick and edit the very best portraits from your session.  And with your permission, I pick a few to post on Facebook and Instagram. So don’t forget to follow me.

Step #5 Your premier & ordering session

Right after your session, we schedule your photo premier and ordering session 1-2 weeks later. This can either be at my Owen Sound Studio or in the comfort of your own home. You will see the full set of final edited portraits for the first time.  Eeeek, so exciting! We will have a fun time reliving your session and giggling at all the fun times we had.

If you choose to come to my studio for your premier, I display my high quality products, so that you can hold, touch, feel and experience them in person. We talk about how best you want to display your photos.  Together, we go through your portraits individually, selecting the ones that you love, ones that you want to display on your walls, put in your photo album and even give as gifts. And guess what, This is a fun process, with no stress!

Step #6. Receive your prints, wall art, and photo albums

About 4 weeks after your ordering session, you will receive your fabulous wall art and photo albums. Hehe, this is my favourite part…okay next to seeing your reactions at your premier…

Now that you are apart of the Candra Schank Photography family, you will be kept updated with the latest news, specials and products. And, I keep all your photos safe so you are always welcome to place additional orders at a later date.

Products

You’re wanting to fill your home with portraits from you pet session. Yah-who. Choosing your favourite images & deciding how best to display them is a great experience.

I only offer professional, high quality, ready to go products that you can start enjoying immediately. You don’t have to lift a finger…or paw…I do all the framing, mounting, and the finishing touches.

Below are the products that my families LOVE. Have a look and start thinking about how you want to display your pet portraits.

Heirloom Photo Albums
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. Thus, all the images from your photo session are lovingly crafted into a beautiful high quality photo album that truly tells the story of your pet.

Album pages are beautifully thick (oh la la) and images are professionally printed
on fine art, lustre archival paper, rated to 75 years. These albums are a show-stopper piece of art – that is all about your pet

Heirloom Albums are priced from $595

Framed 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 $495.

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,grey, brown, and many more looks and styles.

Portraits are printed on fine art paper, mounted, laminated and presented behind
acrylic with a dust backing to seal the wall art. Instead of glass, I use acrylic 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 $495.

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 high resolution files to all my clients either in the All Inclusive Session Package or
apart of my collections.

Images 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. I also provide a print release.

Fine Art Matted Prints
If you’re looking for individual prints, I offer luxury professional print packages. All prints are mounted on styrene for a professional look and laminated so they don’t fade.

Fine Art prints are sold in groups of 5 or 10.
