What photography do you specialize in?
I specialize in natural light pet photography and photo restoration. I am also available for engagement and wedding photography.
Why should I choose custom photography?
Custom photography is an investment in images that preserve memories and capture your loved ones as you really know them, and with proper care these images will last a lifetime. As an experienced and nationally recognized pet photographer, I create unique and timeless images that show your pets true personality and soul.
How much are your sessions?
Please e-mail me for full details on the pricing of my sessions. I offer full sessions which are up to one and a half hours. For those on a budget, I also offer mini sessions which are 30 minutes and restricted to select weekends and particular outdoor locations. Digital images or hard copy prints are available for purchase in addition to large canvas gallery wraps, standouts, enlarged prints, coffee table books and greeting cards. Please e-mail email@example.com for full details regarding pricing and options.
I am worried my dog will not behave or be camera shy. Do you have experience with this?
Don’t worry, every dog owner feels the same way! However please know that I chose to specialize in pet photography because I have a special connection with dogs and the ability to capture their unique personality. Every dog I have worked with has been comfortable with me and the camera, regardless of their personality, size or breed. I will get to know your pet and be sure he/she is used to me before I start pointing a camera at them. Many clients have been very surprised how fast their shy or cautious dogs have warmed up to me. I volunteer regularly at animal shelters and rescue organizations and have experience with many different personalities and breeds.
Will you allow me to be in photos with my pet too?
Sure! You are welcome (and encouraged!) to be in the photos with your pet, and I will almost always capture you and your pet’s bond when you don’t even realize it – allowing for the most raw and intimate moments to shine through. Please visit my Puppy Love gallery on my website to see the types of images I create of pets with their owners.
What can I expect during the session?
During your doggy photo shoot, you and your furry child can expect a time full of laughter, bonding and joy. Your doggy will receive some yummy treats in exchange for their cooperation with this silly photographer lady! I have a great amount of patience with the pooches and will follow them around and capture them in their true element and not overly pose your pup. I will not immediately cut off the session as soon as we are close to the ending timeframe. Sometimes it doesn’t take long at all to get a collection of great shots, but every dog is different and I have the patience to wait if necessary and ensure I have a variety of photos showing your pet’s personality.
What can I expect after the session?
Ever heard of Type A personality? Wikipedia describes this person as a “high-achieving workaholic who multi-tasks, drives themselves with deadlines, and is unhappy about delays.” They are definitely referring to me! I only book one session per day, so I can dedicate all my time to you. After your session, I will download, sort and edit your photos. Within 24-48 hours of your session, you will receive an e-mail with a link to your password-protected gallery of images for viewing purposes. After you view and decide which photos you would like to receive, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with this information and your photos will be sent to you within the same week.
Do you only offer outdoor photo shoots?
I prefer outdoor photo shoots, usually at local parks or in the backyard of your home. I am open to suggestions though. I would also be willing to photograph your pet indoors, assuming there is a substantial area of natural light available. Cats can be photographed on a sun porch if you prefer them to be contained.
How can I book?
Just check out the calendar of my weekend availability by clicking here. Dates that are booked and full have times displayed. Dates that are available will read “OPEN”. I am also available on weeknights after 5:30 upon request (depending on the season for adequate natural light). Once you have a date in mind, e-mail email@example.com to secure your date. I do not require a deposit or a contract to be signed. I am pretty laid back and flexible, so you can truly enjoy and look forward to your exciting day with your pet! If your photo shoot is rained out, I will reschedule your session for another available day.
What should I bring the day of the photo shoot?
For doggy photo shoots, feel free to bring their favorite toy and/or treats. I will bring treats as well, but if your dog has a preferred treat, it never hurts to bring it along! If you are the type to dress your dog up (I know I am!) then please bring any clothing or accessories you would like them to wear. Most importantly, just bring yourself and your furry best friend and be ready for a good time!
What type of payment do you accept and do you offer refunds?
I accept check or cash, due at the time of service. I also now accept credit card payments which would need to be called in and paid in advance the day of the photo shoot. I also accept credit card payments for print and product orders. Payment is for my time photographing and many hours of post processing artistry. There are no refunds offered for services or goods.
How far are you willing to travel?
I will travel within the Kansas City area to the outdoor location of your choice or an indoor location if natural light is available. If you live outside of the immediate Kansas City Metropolitan area, I would consider traveling to other cities and states for an additional charge.
