WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A FULL EXPERIENCE PET PORTRAIT SESSION?

  • ​A photo session in my Ph2grphy studio in Agoura Hills  (up to 90 mins)

  • For up to two pets from the same household (additional pets can be added)

  • A sneak peek image that I'll share on my social media

  • A virtual ordering session where you can handpick your favorite portraits/products

  • And as an added treat, a complimentary small, matted gift print of your choice

WHAT DOES IT COST?

Your upfront cost is $175 for the full experience pet portrait session fee, which is due when you book your appointment. This session fee includes a small, matted gift print of your choice.

Print-wise, everything is offered la carte.

Collections of gift prints start at $440 and go up according to products, size and if you need ready-to-hang wall art, albums etc.

I offer payment plans where payment can be cut in up to five payments.

I have a background as an interior designer and offer an amazing program to help you visualize exactly how your favorites will look like on your own walls.

WHAT IS YOUR LOCATION AND HOURS?

My Ph2grphy studio is located in Agoura Hills behind the historic Old Place and Cornell Winery.

I offer street parking at my home-based studio.

Regular pet portrait sessions take place every day except Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

WHAT IF IT'S AN EMERGENCY?

Emergency sessions are offered (for unwell, elderly or young pets) outside my regular session days/hours for an additional fee of $100.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you think your little friend might need some immediate attention.

WHAT IF MY DOG IS NOT A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL MODEL?

Rarely any of the pets that visit my studio are used to be photographed professionally and commands can be hard to follow during a photo session. HOWEVER please keep in mind that I'll rely on your assistance throughout the entire session to manage, motivate, and guide your pet. The process may require frequent adjustments in body positions, such as sitting, standing, and squatting. Your active involvement will greatly contribute to the success of the session. If you are unable to physically assist, kindly bring along an informed adult familiar with your pet.

HOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKE?

Studio sessions take up to 90 minutes. During that time I will take a series of images using studio lighting, against a plain backdrop. 

I'll need your help, or someone who knows your pet well, to handle them during the whole session. Your hands-on involvement is super important to get the best shots that truly capture your pet's personality. It's a team effort to make sure we create awesome memories together!

WHAT IF I HAVE MORE THAN TWO PETS?

No problem at all. A lot of pet parents have more than two fur babies.The session includes two pets from the same house hold and additional pets can be added for $50 per pet.

IMPORTANT; Your assistance during the entire session is crucial, particularly when dealing with two or more pets. It's essential to have an extra set of hands to supervise the pet(s) not being photographed. Additionally, if attempting to group them (provided they get along), having those extra hands are much appreciated.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THE SESSION?

  • Don't excercise/walk your dog just before the session.

  • If your dog/cat needs grooming, make sure to have that done a few days before the session and not the day before.

  • Remember to bring an adult person (who knows your pet(s) well) if you are not able to assist during the session.

  • If you are bringing 2 or more pets, you will need to bring an additional adult person (who is comfortable with your pets) to help babysit/assist.

SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING?

  • If your pet has allergies or you prefer your own special treats, please bring those.

  • You are welcome to bring outfits for your pet.

  • If your pet has long hair, please bring your own brush.

  • If you are bringing more than one pet, you will need to bring an additional adult person to help assist/babysit during the session.

WHAT ABOUT DIGITAL IMAGES?

We live in a digital world and I understand the importance of digital files, that's why I include the matching digital file (medium res.) of any print purchased at no extra cost.

However, if you decide you like more images than you could possibly have as prints, I also offer high resolution digital packages.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE PHOTO SESSION?

We'll set up a virtual ordering session about a week to ten days after your session to dive into the best images we captured. In this virtual meetup, I'll guide you through the gallery, helping you pick out your favorites. It's your call on what you want to do with them. This session typically takes around an hour.

Rikke is amazing! She is super accommodating and has an exceptional understanding of dog language, never pushing my Minnie to do something she doesn't want to do..
