You & your pet will be guests at our private 70-acre outdoor studio that is specifically made for dog photo sessions. It's an oasis with endless possibilities.
No worrying about other dogs or busy parks...I've got you covered!
Creating beautiful artwork of your pet is my specialty.
I love documenting your special bond. From a rambunctious romp in the field to a cuddle with you, I aim to capture the spirit of your beloved pet and the love you share.
With loads of patience, my expectations for your dog will be this: let your dog be a dog. That's it. Pinky swear!
Together we will plan your personalized pet portrait experience. I'm here to help you from start to finish.
This is where the magic happens! Leave all worries and expectations at the door and just enjoy the experience. Your dog's only job is to be a dog!
You choose your favorites, and I'll walk you through the options as we decide how you'll most enjoy your images, often through a combination of artwork, albums, and digital files.
This is what you've been waiting for! Depending on the artwork you choose, it'll arrive a few+ weeks after you order (trust me, it's worth the wait!) Then, it's endless smiles.
I've never been able to capture Winnie on my phone like Ann could with her amazing skills. Every picture is stunning. This was a truly wonderful experience!
I never thought my puppy would behave but Ann had the necessary enthusiasm, patience, and inventiveness to tempt my dog into adorable poses and action shots. Her photos are keepsakes & I'll treasure forever.
The photos that were taken were absolutely phenomenal! The artwork that now adorns our walls is a magnificent memory of Cora’s special day at Ann Wagaman Photography.
Not at all! Some of my favorite portraits are of dogs standing up. And rest assured, I have a DEEP well of unique sounds and tasty treats to grab their attention-even if it's just for a split second while I capture each image.
Yes! Absolutely! Believe it or not, 95% of the dogs that I
photograph are on leash. Leashes not only keep your best pal safe, but they’re also important for following local laws when photographing in urban environments (but most sessions are at my outdoor studio). You'll never know the leash was there after I edit your images to perfection.
Most sessions will be held at our outdoor studio-70 private acres. There are many stations set up specifically for dog photography. Your dog can be in front of a 100+ year old bridge. More: Barn wood. Tin wall. Rainbow doors. Benches. Flowers. Rocks. Wood pile. "Graffiti" Wall. Pond. A mile of the blue ribbon Trout Run creek.
The "problem" will be narrowing down the choices! But that is a good problem and I'm here to help you with that!
*I also travel to clients (I've even flown to some) and some of the Limited Edition Sessions will be held at predetermined locations.
I completely understand; the world can be a scary place for all of us sometimes. Good news! Our 70 acre property is completely private. While I can’t control the squirrels or rabbits, I can assure you there won’t be any traffic or other dogs to cause your pet to get distracted more than normal.
My camera shutter speed goes all the way up to 1/8000 of a second—in other words, plenty fast enough to capture even 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 I know how to work with “hyper” models and still deliver gorgeous images, jam-packed with personality.
Of course! I love documenting the wonderful connection between you and your dog. While we can certainly capture a traditional portrait of you both smiling at the camera, my clients especially love the candid images of the moments you share. If you're especially camera shy, I can still create some lovely, creative images that tell the story of your relationship. Trust me, it won't be as bad as you think! ;-)
While the majority of my clients are of the canine variety, I do photograph the equine and feline set from time to time (and the occasional cow!)
The most magical light for photography happens during the “golden hour,” which is why I schedule most sessions during the last two hours of daylight. I have many different stations set up for you to choose from and they are all in the best locations with optimal light. Trust me, I spend days just walking around to look for the best dreamy light.
However, I can be a bit more flexible depending on the location and I also have lighting gear that helps give that special pop.
While I do specialize in artwork, you CAN also get the digital files at full resolution so you'll be able to print them on your own later on.
Typically most clients invest around $3000 on artwork. Some spend more, some spend less. It all depends on what you're looking for. I'll guide you to the best products that suit your home.
You sure can! Book an outdoor session and it's an extra $150 to add the studio session.
