An eager greeting at the door, a lick on the cheek, a warm furry snuggle. The look that endears your heart to your best friend. These are the moments to cherish and to celebrate your pet through photography.
As a pet owner, I have experienced the joy of having that trusted friend at my side. While the love will always be with me, I think fondly on those experiences that I shared with my best friend. More than that, I wish I had those moments captured in photographs in order that I could look back at them and relive the moments that meant so much to us.
My business was born from this longing for my own photographs, but also found that other pet parents were longing to have those memories present daily. It could be some wall art, that you wake up to, that embodies your bond. It could be the album that you keep on your coffee table to page through after a long day, just to give you some cheer at nighttime.
Photo sessions with you and your pet are designed around what you do with your pet, how you spend your time together. I will capture images of your pets silly face, or a close up of his fur. To me though, the best captures are having you and your pet together. I believe you should be in the pictures, because it is part of your story together. How can that story be one-sided? How can that story serve you when your pet is no longer hear. If you don’t wish your face in the photo, there are always ways to limit your exposure. I might try to just include a hand, or the back of your head. Maybe the image has your buddy sitting right at your feet.
During our photo session consultation, we will discuss what you love to do with your best friend and where best to schedule the session. You may have a favorite park, or you just love to be at home together.
End of Life Sessions
While I encourage pet parents to get their sessions while their pet is in the prime of his life and still active, I know time seems to slip away and before you know it, your pet is turning grey and having decreased energy, or devastatingly is discovered to have a very short time on this earth. priority is given to these sessions. Each session is based on your wants and needs, with consideration to what your pet can tolerate.
To help my clients dealing with the sudden realization of their pets short time on this earth, I have become a certified pet loss grief specialist to better serve my clientele. I will encourage you to tell stories about your best friend and endevour to let your story unfold through the artwork we create.
