 Before Your Studio Visit

  • Feel free to review pictures on the website, Instagram and Facebook pages to have an idea of what types of pictures/backdrops you would like to have.  Backdrop options can be viewed here: Backdrop Options
  • You are welcome to bring props (pet’s favorite toys, blanket, clothing, hair bows, bow ties, hats etc.) for the pictures. 
  • You can choose between various backdrops 
  • Accidents are ok.  My home is dog-friendly!

A Few Tips

  • Please bring your pet’s favorite treats.  I will have treats on hand, but they may only like their favorites. :)
  • No shock collars please! 
  • Please bring a long thin leash.  We have to abide by the leash laws for outdoor sessions, and long thin leashes allow me to edit them out later.  The thinner and longer, the better.  The length will allow you to still be close to your furbaby, but easily out of the frame when needed.  The leash can also be used in the studio sessions, if your pup wants you close to them.
  • If you are going to be in photos with your furbaby, it's best to choose solid neutral colors (no bright colors or busy patterns).  Black will show every detail (fur, fuzz, etc.) also.  Grays, creams, browns and pastels tend to work best.  If you are doing studio photos, it will depend on what type of backdrops you want.  We can always discuss and get things coordinated before your session :)
