My goal is to create a great portrait of your dog that will always remind you of their personality and what makes you smile on a day to day basis.

• PLAY: The Photo Shoot.
When we first meet, I will spend time getting to know your dog and let him/her get to know me. Think of it as a mini-training session. Although dogs may respond to their owner, to have a successful shoot your dog needs to respond to me. I will work on some basics like sit, stay, and place. We may even walk around for a bit. If we are in the studio, I will flash my strobe lights to get them adjusted. The lights are large and bright and take some getting used to.
During the actual shoot, your dog is always the boss. I follow their lead and work around them. If they are not comfortable with something, I will stop and try something different. If they turn around or move I will move with them. If they need a break, we will take a break. If they want to sit in my lap then they sit in my lap.
Sessions usually take about an hour but I will work as long as your dog wants to work or he gets too tired. I will use squeaky toys and noises to get their attention. Don't forget to bring their favorite toy. I don't always use treats since sometimes that makes them too excited but I will have them on hand if necessary. Bring some of your own if you know they will respond well to them. Please let me know if your dog has any allergies or food restrictions.
