I will come to your home, or a chosen location such as a park, and spend time with you and your pet so that we may capture moments in your routine environment. If desired, we may add their Humans in some photos.
My equipment is mobile, which includes backdrops, lighting, and other items required for a successful photo shoot.
Prior to focussing on Photography, I owned a mobile dog grooming business. It was one of the most fun-loving-exciting jobs I've ever had ... and now Photography is included in that category of my work history. I have full confidence in working with your pet and am familiar with handling certain pets who are frail, particularly seniors or those with special needs. You and I will work together in capturing some of the endearing moments which bring out those characteristics in your pet with which you have fallen in love.

A few tips for achieving a successful Photo Session:
GROOMING/BATHING a short haired canine is recommended one or two days prior to the session.
LONG HAIRED CANINES who will have an actual hair-cut should be groomed five to seven days prior to the session. The reason for this is to make sure the length is what you are comfortable with.
PRACTICE SIT and STAY with your pet consistently daily for at least two weeks prior to the session.
BRING FAMILIAR SNACKS for "attention getting" if necessary, but we will avoid the snacks if at all possible so as not to cause unwanted drooling in the photos. ;)
BRUSH or COMB - Bring for last minute touch ups.
HARNESS - the best style would be as thin as possible. Same for the leash. This will make it easier in post-processing to remove the leash for a more desirable photo.
AVOID bright color harnesses or leashes.
