Yay! You have decided to have a custom pet portraiture session done.
Your second most important decision now is location. Where are we going to go? Much of this decision is driven by the personality of your pet and the memories you want recorded for your heart.
Do you have a favorite place that you and your pet visit? Is your pet more animated and comfortable in your own home? Do you want the beauty of nature to create a natural backdrop for your pet?
A quick note about safety. We have sighthounds and we never, ever let them off leash in an unfenced area. I am adamant about their safety, probably bordering on paranoia and I feel the exact same way about your pet. If they cannot trusted off-leash, we won’t take any chances. I am a master at working around the leash in Photoshop.
There’s no place like home. For many pets, especially cats, this is so true. If the world around them is scary, then let me come to you. I am a completely portable studio. We can have your session inside your home or in your backyard. I want your pet to be comfortable and feel completely at ease.
Play date in the park. A ball, a frisbee or just chasing around with wild abandonment. If this makes your pet’s heart go pitter patter, then let’s find a park.
Walk in the woods. Ah yes, the great outdoors. Do you have a favorite hiking trail with your best friend? I’m ready, let’s take a hike.
Romp on the beach. My very favorite place to go. Open sandy beaches, salty air, seagulls. It just doesn’t get any better. A word of warning though. I have weather apps that I faithfully watch, but even the best weather programs can’t always produce an accurate forecast. A promised sunset can quickly become encased in mysterious fog, sunny days blanketed in overcast. A session at the beach translates into “it will be wonderful time no matter what the weather sends our direction.”
My little rustic studio. OK, I admit it, at one time my little rustic studio housed two vehicles. Now, I like to think of it as a super-sized door leading into a space with a backdrop and lighting, a few antique settees and other assorted items I have picked up along the way. It’s perfect.
It’s rustic AND the best part of all, just behind the studio, we have a fully-fenced acre that is safe for nearly any dog to be off-leash. Our acre is surrounded by six-foot fence. All four sides have a different look including open, weathered board and even a rock wall.
Are you ready to book that session yet?
