Your Professional Pet Photographer
“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” –Martin Buber
We understand how important your furry family members are to your daily life. Pets bring us laughter, happiness, love and companionship. Consider a Pet Photography Session to celebrate the bond you share with your pet. We are committed to showing their personality through expressions. We can capture what makes your pet stand out from the rest. Pets can include dogs, cats, horses, and a number of different animal companions. Pet Portraits will capture the special presence that you love in your fuzzy friend for years to come.
Session Fee: $125 The session fee is for my time, talent and in many cases for my assistant. It does not include any prints or products.
Each session includes a pre-shoot phone consultation, where we will discuss the details of your session, and studio gallery portrait review appointment where you can make your ordering decisions.
I do not require a minimum purchase; individual prints start at $50 and print collections start at $299. I also offer a digital collection which includes the session fee and up to 20 of your favorite images – delivered in the Regency Finish with a resolution that will print up to an 8x10. The session fee is non-refundable, however, should you need to reschedule due to illness or an emergency, please contact me as soon as possible.
The decision between photographing your pets in studio or on location can be tailored to the desired style of your portraits. Some families find that the warmth and familiarity of the setting of your home illustrates a special feeling and connection to the story your session will tell.
There are many gorgeous locations in Hampton Roads that lend themselves as beautiful backgrounds. Consider the many beaches in Norfolk, Ocean View, Virginia Beach, and Sandbridge Beach. Our favorite Parks in Virginia Beach are: First Landing State Park and Red Wing Park. In Chesapeake, Oak Grove Lake Park has trails as well as waterfront areas. The Norfolk Botanical Gardens offers a variety of options during most of the year. There are many portraits in our galleries that were taken from these areas.

Your satisfaction is always guaranteed. Our job is to provide you with amazing images of your family that you will enjoy for many years. It’s important that you love your photographs and they bring joy to your life.
Have you had portraits of past generations given to you? It is a part of who you are and the legacy of your family line. It is also about heartwarming memories you have shared together. The portraits you create with our studio will be the keepsakes you hand down to your children and their children. A beautiful portrait can be small or large. What is important is its ability to tell a story that is personal and meaningful to you.
We are a studio that is based on the creation and production of beautiful images. It is a complete piece of art. There are many steps to the process. We take great care to handle each part of the process to give you the best quality. We want you wowed when you hold the final creations in your hands!
How will you keep and view these professional Portraits? Archival permanence needs to be strongly considered to insure you can enjoy your images for decades to come. This may sound counter intuitive to current thought, but beautifully created photographs are safest when they are in your hands instead of on a disc. Consider that the storage and management of digital files will increase dramatically every year for images that you are not enjoying. Thousands of images in dozens of folders stored across various machines and cloud platforms makes losing digital files a hard reality. Technology will change and you will need to update and change the formats of your existing files in the future, too. We are dedicated to physical images becauses digital images are easily lost, buried, corrupted or outdated. We have a commitment to your portrait permanence and that is why we put the final prints into your hands!
