woof...camera...action! "baby it's cold outside"

aka the "I'd rather just do it inside" 

Lets face it ...not everybody wants to go out and roll in the leaves in October or do a photoshoot in the snow in January!  If you want to celebrate your dog AND your beautiful interior design, or if you'd just rather stay warm and dry, this is the session for you!  I say let's go for it! 

For this session you can expect:

lots of laughs - fun - belly rubs - wrangling - treats

kazoo playing and duck calls. 

What not to expect:

a rigid plan - a bad mood or a diva attitude!

How it all works:

Post production

Being a superstar is exhausting! After our fun filled shoot is over you and your dog will be ready for a nap! While you’re at it the next round of work starts for me. I’ll be back at my desk downloading all the photos we shot, going through them one by one, curating a tight edit of the photos that really make your dog shine. After that I’ll make basic adjustments of color/contrast etc to all my selects, upload those photos to a password protected website , send you the link to pick your favorites and woof! balls in your court!

Delivery as needed

Depending on where you are and what you order we will figure out the best way to get you your prints.

Our creative call

All great ideas get even better with a creative call. Before our shoot we will brainstorm on the phone and talk about your goals for the shoot. You'll tell me what your house is like. Maybe take some photos on your phone of spots you have in mind. Do you have beautiful morning light? Does your dog lay in a puddle of sun next to a window in the beautiful afternoon light? You’ll tell me all about your dog, what you love so much about him and what makes him the great dog that he is.

The shoot day

I'll get to to your house and we will scout around. I'll look at the available light and we'll agree on a great spot to shoot his main portrait. Once we decide I’ll put my 20 years of lighting experience to work to capture that sparkle in your dog’s eye and make him shine just as vibrant as his personality. As you tell me more about your dog, the quirky things he does, the funny faces he makes we will work on making me your dog’s new BFF and get him comfortable with my camera and lights. Once that happens we'll get down to it! Things will get funny, I’m not gonna lie, we’ll use my dog whispering experience and/or my bag of tricks to get your dog engaged with the camera. Fair warning (and only if you want to) you might find yourself laying on your belly next to me on the floor...blowing kisses at your doggo,...enticing him with his favorite ball or squeezing a duck call toy. If you want to play the kazoo you won’t have to twist my arm to let you. It's up to you! You’re going to laugh and have a blast and so will your dog - thats a promise. After we feel like we got "the shot" we'll move on to a different spot near by and do some "set up candids". How about a close up with your best friend and a snuggle. During this time if you would like to be in a shot with your dog thats fine with me just be aware that because we are inside I have to use more lighting than I do outside and set ups take longer, but hey, you can just hang out on the couch with your dog while I get ready. ​This session generally lasts about 3 hours including all the set up time for lighting - we finish when your dog lets us know he is done or when we are confident we shot a lot of really great images.

Photoshop Magic

Next I get out my wand and work my photoshop magic on your choices. I’ll dedicate even more hours to making the shot the very best it can be. Whether its swapping heads, taking out leashes, adding flares, clouds or extra trees, I’ll make it a photo you will love every time you walk past it hanging on your wall and you'll laugh to yourself when you think about what we did together to make it happen. (Be sure to “take a look behind the curtain” to see examples of the kind of magic that goes into a great portrait)

Choose your favorites

When you are done oooo...ing and awe..ing at all the images of your amazing pup then its up to you to make the tough decision and pick your favorites. You decide which product you want from the choices that are included in your session and decide if you want to order any extra prints. You let me know and then its back to the computer for me to start retouching.
