Hehe, this page is full of insight into what a pet photography experience is like. Read on…and when you’re super duper excited to have a fun pet session, let’s

 GET IN TOUCH.

 

Step #1: Meet and greet (& planning meeting)

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 all of us to get to know each other. We discuss your session and the different wall art that would be great in your home. I work with you throughout the whole process.

Step #2: Book your pet photo session.

During our consultation, we will look at our calendars and schedule your pet session. Studio session are generally held during the day. 

Outside sessions are held 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

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 or your stable.
  • 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. 

Generally, your dog will be on leash to keep your dog’s 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.

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 #5 Your premiere & ordering session

Right after your session, we schedule your photo premier and ordering session to be held 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.  Eeeek, so exciting! We will have a fun time reliving your session and giggling at all the fun times we had.

During your premiere, you can hold, touch, feel and experience product samples. We talk about how you want to display your photos, select the ones 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 premiere…

    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 $200.

    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 $300.

    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 MOUNTED OR Matted Prints

    If you’re looking for individual prints, I offer luxury professional print packages. All prints are mounted on styrene (or matted) for a professional look and laminated so they don’t fade.

    Fine Art prints are sold individually or in sets of 10.  

    Prices start from $60.
