Your session includes all Pets and People living in your home and will typically last 1-2 hours but takes as long as needed to capture your Portraits. It is important for me to get to know your Pets so their personalities will shine in their pictures and also so I know what techniques will be necessary in order to be able to photograph them. I will do any combination of images for you including Family Portraits and individuals. Please understand that if you have 5 dogs that will not sit together, you are probably not getting a Portrait of all 5 dogs together :) I am VERY patient but I am not a magician.
It is important to note: If you have an infant and are wanting Portraits without your Pet you will need to purchase Session through my other Website.
Before Your Session
It is important to exercise your Dogs prior to their Session, this helps to relieve some of their excess energy. A walk around the block should do the trick. Play with your Cats and other Critters to help with theirs.
When it comes to bathing & grooming it is important to know your animal. If a bath stresses them then do it the day before, if it makes them happy then do it the morning of your Session. No matter what a good brushing prior to your Session is very important.
If I am coming to your home make sure all of your Pet's favorite spots are ready for Portraits, I will follow them around and get down on the floor. I may also open up your curtains to assist with good lighting.
