Your pet is not required to have any training in order to have a successful session.
These candid style, story telling sessions are done at a location of your choice whether it be at your home or somewhere special.
■ Your pet DOES NOT have to be off leash.
Located in Lockport, NY the studio allows us to be inside, unleashed, out of the elements with ample natural light and plenty of "home-like" settings for a variety of portraits.
■ Treat toss session included! Visit my portfolio page to see what treat toss is. You'll know it when you see it!
A.STEP 1: Consultation: Tell me all about your pup and your vision so we can discuss ideas and plan your perfect session.
STEP 2: Planning: Let's style and prep for your session! From outfit and accessory suggestions to walking you through what you should expect during your session so you are ready to go the day of!
STEP 3: Portrait Session: Our detailed planning ensures that this will be an enjoyable experience without feeling rushed or anxious, resulting in an unforgettable time for both you and your pup!
STEP 4: Reveal & Order | A virtual reveal will be scheduled within 2 weeks of your session. Together, we will view (& most likely cry) as well sort through your portraits, discuss products & finalize your order!

What magical editing do you perform in photoshop?
A.Included with your session:
Leash removal, eye boogies, hair removal from clothing, red rockets, background distractions, etc.
Anything that I view as the artist that may impact the overall integrity of an image, will be removed.
What if my dog is uncooperative?
A.Maybe your pup hasn't perfected the sit/stay, is shy or timid, nervous around new people or is a bit more excitable. This does not mean they won't do well in front of the camera.
My job is to know how to handle each situation and temperament to allow for a successful session.
No need to worry or stress over anticipated behaviors.
Does my dog have to be off leash?
A.To ensure the safety of not only your dog but others that may be around during your session, I do not recommend or encourage dogs to be off leash other than in the studio.
Prior to our session, you will be prepped on what to expect the day of your session. This includes how I will capture particular shots while your pup remains on his/her leash.
During the editing process, I will removed leashes, eye goops, hair on clothes, etc.
