 What to expect in a

pet photography session?

 

Before the Session

  I will schedule a preliminary consultation with you to discuss your vision and goals for your pet photography session. We will determine the best location and time of your photo shoot and we’ll talk about the best package options for your budget.

And to learn more about you and your pet you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire.  The session agreement will need to be signed and 50% deposit is due at booking!

Selecting a Location

 Finding the perfect location for your photo session plays a huge role in the final look of the photographs captured in your session. I am more than happy to help choose the right  location to help tell yours and your pet’s story.  I love working with  great natural light, interesting textures and architecture. 

Preparing for the Session

A few days before your session you will receive an email with tips and information to help you get ready for your session and make it run as smoothly as possible. If your dog requires trimming or grooming, I suggest it’s done a couple of days prior to the session. Not on the same day of the photo shoot. If you’d like to bring your dog’s favorite toy, treats, and accessories like bandanas, bowties, etc to the session, please feel free to do so!

Enjoy the Session

Expect to have fun! Also expect that things might not go as planned, as it all depends on your dog’s mood that day. He calls the shots!  And it is okay if things don’t go as planned! I am fully prepared to use my many tricks to capture beautiful images of you and your pet. The most important thing is to relax because as you probably know, dogs have the ability to pick up on your energy, and if you are stressed they will be stressed too.

DESIGN & Ordering

At the end of your session, we will schedule a date for your session premiere, where you will have the opportunity to view the best images from your session. This meeting can be either in person or through a video chat! Your photos will be presented in a slideshow, then you will go through them one by one and choose your favorites.

I will help you choose the perfect products to display your photos in your home and answer any questions you may have.  I can also bring sample products so you can touch and feel everything before you make your final investment decision.  

Enjoy Your Products

 I use only the highest quality labs and vendors in the country, and I am certain you will love your products. If possible, I will schedule a time to hand-deliver your high-end products, but it can also be shipped directly to you.

• Frequently asked Questions •

How long is a typical pet photo session?
Every photo session is unique and will vary in length, but it usually takes anywhere from one to two hours.
What if my dog is not good off leash?
The safety of your pet is my number one priority.  If you have concerns about your dog being off-leash in an unfenced area filled with tempting distractions, it’s completely understandable that you would want to keep your pup on a leash… and in fact, I encourage it. After your session I can perform my magic in Photoshop and make the leash disappear at no additional charge.
How far will you travel?

Your session fee includes traveling to any location within the North New Jersey – specifically 25 miles from the 07031 zip code. However, a $25 traveling fee will be applied to locations exceeding 25 miles from zip code 07031 and/or NYC areas (Manhattan, Brooklyn, East Village, Staten Island, etc).  If you are from another state please know that I love to travel and see new places, so please don’t hesitate to ask me for specific travel availability and fees!

What should I do to prepare for the session?
If you are planning on grooming your pup please try to do so a few days prior to the session. You don’t want to do it on the same day of the session, as it can be overwhelming for him. If possible, please exercise your dog before the session, especially if he has a lot of energy. Please have your pup wear a collar rather than a harness for his photo session. Note that harnesses are very hard to remove in Photoshop and there will be an additional charge if you would like it removed. Please bring your pet’s favorite treats and toys with you!
What can I expect during the session?
During the session, you won’t have to do anything except have fun with your pet!  Do not worry about getting in the way – we will move around as needed to capture the best shots.  You might be asked to do something specific or help out by holding the leash, the treats, or throwing the ball. Your help might also be needed to give your dog some basic commands like telling him to sit, stay and/or do some tricks (if he knows any), etc.  We will work together as a team to make sure we are getting the types of photos you desire to display in your home.
How long is a typical Ordering/Design Consultation Session?

Please allow at least an hour of your time. You will view the beautiful images captured at your pet photography session, go over the product options, and you will make your final purchasing decisions. I ask that all decision-makers are present at this session!

I have no idea how I want to display my images. What are my options?
There are many possibilities to display your images and we will work together to create something that fits perfectly into your home. The first step is to start thinking about it even before the session takes place. This way I know if you’ll need me to photograph vertical or landscape portraits, maybe sequency of photos for a wall art collection, etc.  I want to  create the best portraits possible for you!  Things to think about:

  • What is your home decor like?
  • What colors do you have in your home?
  • What room does your family spend the most time in?
  • Is there a specific place where you are thinking of displaying these portraits?

I  offer custom designed wall art including modern canvas and signature frames collections. It will look gorgeous on the walls of your home.  Many of my clients love to create custom designed Photobook as well!  It will be my pleasure to show all the beautiful products at our Design & Ordering Session.  There you’ll have the opportunity to see, touch, hold, and feel many of the different products offered.

Have any other questions?

 

My husband and I have been wanting to take family pictures with our pets for a long time & we’re having a hard time finding a photographer who could capture the moments with birds. My birds and cat love to play with each other and photography would require much patience to get the pictures right.  She was very patient with us and our pets, and this was critical to capture the kinds of moments we wanted. She interacted with the pets just as we had mentioned to her. She set-up everything perfectly that was needed for the shoot, and she worked with our not the best lighted apartment on a rainy and muggy day. We talked and laughed while trying to get the pets to take pictures with us. I could not have asked for a better pet photographer than her. We had a wonderful experience and would not hesitate one bit to recommend her to family and friends. Viraj Johnson
