I will give you a call to set a time for us to have a consultation meeting. There is absolutely NO CHARGE for this! It is a chance for us to meet and for me to meet your dog. In this meeting, you can tell me all about your dog’s personality (likes belly rubs, is a speed demon, doesn’t like loud noises, LOVES soft toys, etc.) and how you would like to document the special memories we will make together in your Lifestyle Photo Session.
I will show you some photo products so you can see the beautiful quality and choices you will have for Wall Art and Story Albums. Take a look HERE if you would like an advance preview.
We will decide the photo session location; usually outdoors on your property or a favorite place where you spend time with your dog (a local park, a favorite dog friendly restaurant, the WATER?). And YES – YOUR DOG CAN BE PHOTOGRAPHED ON LEASH! I am pretty good at editing leashes out of photos if my assistant (you!) holds the leash up and away from your dog’s body. At our consultation, I will give you more details about the photo session itself and you may ask any questions you might have.
We will then both sign a photography agreement and photo release. Your retainer fee will be due at this time, in order to book a date. At this time we will also book a date for you to view your images from the session.
Lifestyle Photo Session
Can you and your pup be photographed together? Absolutely! How many times do you have an opportunity for a portrait with your pup? This will make a priceless memory! I prefer natural light photography, which means we will probably be outdoors for the session. However, if you would rather that some or all photos are taken inside, this can be accommodated if there is fairly good window or other available natural light. Your Lifestyle Photo Session will be approximately 90 minutes long from start to finish. The session will include both still photos and some video clips.
Now comes the REALLY FUN part! We will view your images together! Your final viewing gallery will contain approximately 30 fully edited photos. If video clips were taken during the session, you will also see those. Your order for Wall Art, Story Albums, photo packages, and Lifestyle Photo Session Video will be made at this time and must be accompanied by full payment in cash, check or credit card before your order can be placed.
I use a variety of different professional printing sources for the products offered by Dog Life Images. When your complete order has been delivered to Dog Life Images (usually 2 - 3 weeks from order date), we will schedule a pickup or delivery time.
