My dog doesn’t know sit or stay, is that a problem?
That’s OK Many of my most favourite portraits have my dog standing. I have an ample supply of unique sounds and tasty treats to keep their attention on me.
My dog can’t be off-leash, can I still do a session?
Yes! Absolutely! Believe it or not, 95% of the dogs that I photograph are on leash. This not only keeps the flight risks safe but is also important so that we can follow local leash laws. Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, leashes will be removed from most final images.
My dog is super reactive to other dogs/people/bicycles, how will that work?
I completely understand, the world can be a scary place for all of us sometimes. If your dog is nervous or reactive we can choose a location that suits them. I know some out of the way locations that receive very little dog or foot traffic.
My dog is a never-ending ball of energy, how do you manage high-energy dogs?
My camera shutter speed goes all the way up to 1/8000 of a second - plenty of speed to capture the most active dog! Our sessions never require your dog to sit, stay and behave for hours (or even minutes) on end. One of the benefits of hiring a pet-specific photographer is that we know how to manage our hyper clients and still deliver gorgeous images dripping with personality.
What if the weather is bad?
I always keep an eye on the weather a few days before our session. If Mother Nature decides to not co-operate, we’ll work together to reschedule your session.
How do I choose a location?
All sessions include a complimentary planning consultation. On our call we’ll discuss what type of look you envision for your session, what special needs your dog has - such as, he’s reactive to bicycles, what part of town you are located in, and then I’ll offer some suggestions that check all the right boxes!
What about harnesses or gentle leaders, can they be removed?
Well, the magic of Photoshop does have some limitations and super bulky harnesses hide so much of the dog’s chest that it’s very challenging to rebuild that accurately in post-production. Gentle leaders can leave challenging shadows or pull on the dog’s skin so they are also very challenging to remove. If your dog normally wears one of these for walks, I recommend using them for walking to our location and for the periods of time in between the shooting - but, if possible, also bring a flat collar to use for the actual shooting.
Can I be in the images too?
Of course, I would be honoured! I love capturing the connection between pets and their people. Most clients tend to love the more candid images. If you’re really camera shy, I can still create some beautiful images that tell the story of your relationship. Please just trust me and remember that you don’t have to do anything with the images that you don’t love.
Who can come to the session?
Everyone (furry or not) that lives in the same household is welcome to participate in our session. If you are interested in holding a session with your dog’s best bud, or your extended family, simply contact me for a custom quote.
Do you photograph pets other than dogs?
Fur, feathers, scales and tails - I photograph them all! While dogs make up the majority of my clients, I love all animals and would be happy to photograph your critter.
