My dog isn't trained at all! What if he won't cooperate?
This is by far the most common concern that I hear! Not to worry. Over the past 16 years I've worked with pets of every energy level, personality, and level of training you could imagine. High energy, shy/nervous, easily distracted... I work with it all on a regular basis. We get great results by taking a very relaxed approach and never try to force an animal to do something it doesn't want to do. Most importantly, I have an abundance of patience!
Can I be in some of the photos with my pet?
Absolutely! I love capturing the special bond between pets and their people in a candid and relaxed way. Check out the gallery page to see some examples!
What if my dog can't be off leash?
Not a problem! In public spaces that are not fenced, I strongly recommend that dogs remain on leash. I can almost always remove it in post-processing. It might not look like it, but most of the dogs on this site were actually on a leash during their session.
How far in advance should I book a session?
We usually schedule weekday sessions about 2-4 weeks in advance, but please keep in mind that spring, fall + the holiday season, and weekends will book up faster. However, if your pet has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and doesn't have that much time left, please don't hesitate to contact me right away so that we can try to fit you in!
