Our animals are so much more than just pets. They are constant companions, best friends, fur-kids, snuggle partners, hiking or biking partners and protectors. They are such an important part of the family that they deserve professional portraits that will last. Our goal is to celebrate that relationship and show each of their unique personalities.
Q: My dogs have not been trained, will you be able to create portraits of them?

A: The answer is yes, if you stay calm! Pets will pick up on the parent’s stress and if you stay non-demanding we will be able to capture their unique personality. Patience is required!

Q: How should I best prepare for the session?

A: Once you make your donation to the HES and book your session we will contact you to learn more about your pets, their personalities and issues or concerns you might have. In addition we will send you a PDF outlining several steps to help insure a successful portrait session. 

Q: How will I choose my favorite portraits?

A: Once you bring your pets in for the session we will schedule a personalized time for you to come in to the studio to relax and review the images that we created. At this time you will select which portrait you want to be featured in the book. You will also have the opportunity to purchase different products that we have created specifically for this HES project. The portraits are presented life size on a screen so that you can see all the details.

Q: Can I get in the portrait with my pets?

A: Absolutely! We strongly encourage you to do this because they are part of your family.Some may want to just do the children and the furry kids, but family portraits showcasing pets are always a stunning addition to your home.

Q: What backgrounds are available?

A: To keep the book consistent and focus on the dogs individual personalities all portraits for the book will be done on a clean white background. However, we will have formal backgrounds available for more of a couture look if that is something you would like for yourself.

Q: Will you take portraits of my 2, 3, 4 dogs together?

A: Of course, however the design of the coffee table book will feature one dog per page so we will create individual portraits and if you wish to invest in a unique art piece with all of them together that will be available.
