What if our pet is shy or doesn’t like other people?
When it comes to shy pets I take extra time to build the trust needed to get the shot. Sometimes it may take loads of treats and lots of quiet and calming time. I have had some extremely shy pets come out of their shell, it just takes a lot of patience…which you will find I have an unlimited supply of! Now, if your pet is agressive then we should discuss options for how you will help me fulfill your expectations for the session. Your pet may need to be on a leash or restrained and that’s fine – I can still get fantastic pictures nonetheless.
Where can our session be held?
I prefer home sessions because your pet will be extremely comfortable in their own environment. However, location sessions can be really great too. It’s ideal to pick a location that your pet has been to before, unless they are super comfortable just about anywhere. A local park, coffee shop or pet friendly establishment could all be awesome locales for your session. We will discuss your expectations prior to the session and we can determine what location would work best.
How should we prepare for the session?
A brisk walk or play time with your pet can really help loosen them up prior to their session. If your pet has a particular favorite treat or toy then those will be great to have on hand. You absolutely do not need to clean up your house or yard. I will be focusing on your pets and can work around almost anything.
How long will the session take?
The session can take as little as 45 minutes or as long as 2 hours. Some pets are shy, nervous or overly excited and I make sure that I give them the time needed to relax and feel comfortable. I take the time needed to ensure that I capture the most perfect images of you and/or your pet.
When will I see the images?
You will be able to view the images in a personal password protected gallery within 1-2 weeks after your session. You will have 14 days to make your print/product selections.How long do print and product orders take?Once image selections are made, print orders take approximately 2 weeks to be delivered after payment is received. Albums, canvas wraps and other specialty products can take up to 4-6 weeks for delivery.
