Tails of Companionship and Resilience
I am looking for women of all ages that would like a personal portrait experience that focuses solely on the love and relationship between you and your special pup. Share a story of a time in your life that was extremely challenging, rewarding, maybe even uncomfortable, when you found absolute comfort in your dog.
The goal of the project is to get an intimate look inside of our emotional ties to our dog and what makes our relationships so strong. How no matter what we face, endure and survive, they are there for us in a way that no one understands but you.
Select stories and portraits will be shared via blog posts and social media. The ultimate goal of this project is to publish stories & portraits in a book.
Read the FAQ's for answers related to product pricing.
What is credit?
A.Think of it as having a gift card to use towards products.
What might I spend on products?
A.Would you like to keep your product investment under $2k? Then a portrait album is perfect! It includes a minimum of 25 of your favorite portraits, perfect for story telling and my best selling product. Although, some individuals opt for a collection of smaller prints with an investment range of between $500-$900. Matching corresponding digital files for social media sharing are also included.
The most popular pairing of products include a portrait album along with 1-3 pieces of wall art with an average investment of between $2-3k.
What you chose to invest is entirely at your discretion.
What about digtial files?
A.Social media sized digital files of all purchased products are complimentary.
This means that if you purchase an album of 25 portraits, you will also receive those 25 images as social media sized digital files for sharing. Same concept for purchased wall art and gift prints.
Digital files are sized for sharing on social media and printing up to 5x7.
Do you offer payment plans?
A.Yes! Payment plan options are available on all product purchases over $750.
Option 1: Pay in full
Option 2: $750 down, split monthly payments up to 6 months.
Option 3: Want your products now but need to split the payments? Head over to paypal.com/credit for instant approval and 0% interest for the first 6 months. Use your PayPal credit to purchase your products!
Will you help me chose what portriats look best on my walls?
Before - or - during your reveal appointment, you can send me photos of specific walls in your home and we can create renderings of what your portraits will look like on your walls before you place your order.
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.
What if I don't want my face or name associated with my story?
A.This is 100% fine and understandable. If you would prefer that when your story is shared, that the portrait chosen for the story allows anonymity, you will have the opportunity to select this as an option upon booking your session.
You are not required to make a payment or put down a deposit of any kind when you sign up. By signing up you are agreeing to be notified by email of upcoming session availability. Once you receive an email in the future regarding availability, you can decide then if you would like to book a session.

"When I tell you I cried when I first got the gallery back, I mean I legit cried into a giant bag of Cheetos that was sitting in my lap. She captured who Sadie was so beautifully. Those photos now mean so much more since Sadie suddenly passed away earlier this year. As a photographer myself it is sometimes tough for me to trust someone else to capture those important moments for me, however I will forever trust Emily with my furry family members, as she captures them in a way that I cannot."

"My time with Emily was amazing! She literally captured every funny and cute aspect of my dog that I had asked her too! She was very patient with my wiggly dog too and her ideas were so creative! Definitely summed up my dog so perfectly in photos! Love that I will have these forever!"

"Phenomenal experience with Emily throughout the entire process. Emily was professional, prompt, responsive to e-mails, and made the entire experience fun and enjoyable which is evident in our photos. We received our photos back quickly and were blown away with how great they turned out. Would absolutely recommend and look forward to more photos in the future"
