Pet Photography is an investment. 
It captures the love and uniqueness of the interdependence between you and your pet(s). 
It captures their essence and personality.
It is a lifetime memory.

A pet session is usually 1h.
Full payment is required as a retainer to book the date. Travel expenses might be charged back to the client.
Payment can be done cash, check or credit-card/paypal.
Gift certificates are available.

I like to do a pre-shoot consultation, by email/phone/meeting. 
My goal then is to define what you'd like to achieve, capture, and take away from your session. Everybody is different.
I also like to present my product line to let them know what's possible to do with the images.

- How did you learn about my services?
- What kind of pet do you have? How many? Name/Age? Behavior/Activity Level?
- How did you get the pet? Is it a rescue?
- Where would you like to do the shoot?
- Is the pet friendly with people/other animals? Aggressive under certain circumstances?
- Any specific request for the session? the images?
- What do you want to do with the images? Any products in mind?
- Do you want to appear in the images?
- Do you have deadlines?
- Is it for you or as a gift?
- Where do you live or come from?

PHOTO-SHOOT - A fun experience
Pet sessions are usually on location (your home and/or a park...) and last up to 2 hours. I shoot usually with natural light in a low-key relax way. My goal is to capture your pet in a genuine way.
You can either be part of some images or not (or just your feet ;-)) your choice!
There are a few things that can give us a very successful pet photo session: 

Talk with me about what you are hoping for. 
Any particulars you might want to share with me about the pet's behavior or what makes it unique would also be very helpful. 
Groom your pet before the shoot. Usually a day or two before the shoot is best. 
If your pet is brought to the photo session a little bit on the hungry side, all the better. 
Exercising a dog before the photo shoot is always a good idea. 
Bring your pet's favorite toy/treat.

It takes me less than 2 weeks to cull and edit the images. 
We can then meet and go through your images (on average I get 25-50 images).
If I haven't already, I'm happy to show you what we can do with your images; albums, wall portraits, collages...

There is no obligation to purchase anything.
Client Average Investment: $1,000
