The horse. Here is nobility without conceit, friendship without envy,
beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave.
- Ronald Duncan
Our sessions are laid back, relaxed and a lot of fun.
There's no need to stress about getting the perfect posed shot - all you need to do is love on your four legged friend just like like you always do. I'll be your guide to gently prompt and adjust to make sure you and your animal look flawless and beautiful!

What to Expect at the Session
It'll be fun!
I know I know, of course I have to say that! But in all seriousness, it is my top priority to make sure you, your family and your animals are happy, relaxed and comfortable. I'm very easy-going by nature and will never rush or pressure anyone, animals included. We will have already discussed the goals for the images you desire so I will guide everyone in achieving them in a natural candid way. The animals (and kids if applicable) will set the pace, and I will never push anyone beyond their limits. We can always take a snack and water break if anyone is getting hangry!
Don't worry if your pet isn't perfectly behaved (or kids for that matter - seriously I know, I have a toddler) or things don't go as planned, we will just roll with it. If you are relaxed your animals will be relaxed too, which makes for the best photos!
The Session is done ... now what?
Once we part ways I will get busy behind the scenes. Each image will be edited in my signature style. Your images will be available for viewing and download in an online gallery 3 weeks post-session.
In the online gallery you will have the option to order prints, wall art, and albums etc if you so choose. This is not a requirement and you can print your images as you please of course! The bonus of ordering through me is I order from a professional printer and receive archival quality items (so they don't age or fade like the standard Walmart/Costco print shops.) Having trouble deciding what to get printed? I can design a custom gallery wall based on your desired wall space in your home! The options are endless.
Your art will be shipped to me for quality inspection, wrapping and delivery to your home.
And that's a wrap!
