Are you wondering what a pet session is like? Do you have questions? Let's chat to see if it's a good fit. Click the link below. We start with a short call, and together will start to plan your personalized pet portrait experience.
Start with the end in mind...Think about what you'd like to do with your final images. I've carefully chosen amazing artwork products & I'll guide you through what works best for your home.
We'll also customize your experience to create the magical results you're after. I've got you from click to print!
Around 2 weeks after your session, you'll receive an email letting you know your slideshow is ready to be viewed.
You'll also choose the collection you wish to purchase. Once that's set, the full gallery will open & you'll be able to select the artwork products that will be ideal for your home.
This is where the FUN happens! Leave all the worries and expectations at the door. It's time to relax and enjoy the experience. Your dog's only job is to be a dog!
(Same for cats)
Your job...relax and trust that we’re creating incredible images—because...we are!
You & your pet will be guests at my 70-acre outdoor studio where there are many areas set up specifically for dogs. Interested in studio sessions? That's available, too!
No worrying about other dogs, busy parks or streets...I've got you covered!
Hi, I'm Ann!
As a pet mom, I'm basically obsessed with creating lasting memories of my furry little ones. I mean, who can resist snapping a quick pic every time they strike a cute pose or do something silly?
But let's be real, not all of those impromptu snaps make the cut for framing or printing. That's where my passion for pet photography comes in! I've spent countless hours perfecting my skills and curating the perfect outdoor & studio backdrops to help capture your furry friend at their very best - and in their element, no less!
After a few years of being a photography wizard, I learned a big lesson - that sometimes the hardest part isn't capturing the perfect shot, but actually getting it up on your wall or into artwork to display.
I had some repeat clients who would tell me their regrets - despite their best intentions, their digital images would just sit there, gathering virtual dust, never seeing the light of day.
And I totally get it - with so many options for printing and framing, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. But fear not, my friends! I'm now here to guide you through the maze of wall art and display options, and help you choose the best way to showcase your memories.
So if you're ready to take your pet photography game to the next level and create some seriously frame-worthy shots, then let's chat! Together, we'll create memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
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.
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. 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!
Limited Edition sessions (for members only) may be held at a pre-determined location.
At this time, sessions will take place on my property. Come to me for a phenomenal experience!
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! ;-)
At this time, people/pets images are only for outdoor sessions.
YES! Cats!! I love cats! Most cat sessions are in my studio. I have a wealth of cat toys, catnip spray, feathers...you name it!
Most sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Weekend sessions are very limited & held only for club members.
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.
Studio sessions are more flexible, of course.
Yes! These are exclusively held for club members. They've included holiday sessions, location sessions/etc. Memberships open twice a year. More info coming.
