Tips for preparing your dog for a photography session:

While my photo sessions are very relaxed, there are a few things that you can do to set up for a successful session.

  • Be sure to give your dog some exercise ( not too much) before a session to make him relaxed and focused.
  • Give long-haired dogs a good brushing before the session.
  • Make sure your pet’s eyes are clean and the nails have a proper length.
  • I generally provide a variety of treats, but if they have any special dietary needs, please bring treats they can eat.
  • Please feel free to bring any favorite toys .
  • Consider being included in a few photographs with your pet. If you would like to, please wear solid-coloured clothes and avoid bold patterns such as stripes, or clothing with letters.
  • Leashes, collars and harness: If your dog will be wearing a collar or harness throughout the entire session, make sure itโ€™s one you would like to see in your images.
  • Keeping your pet on leash is totally fine, if you donโ€™t wish to see the leash in your photos, we can try to minimize it while shooting, and it can be removed in the images you purchase.
  • Donโ€™t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
  • Normally the ideal time for the shooting would be early morning or late afternoon, to ensure the best possible light quality.
