Session Information
I'm a natural-light, on-location photographer, which means no studio, no backdrops, and no big lighting set-ups. You choose your favourite, pet-friendly spots for the shoot - a nearby walking trail or park, a beach you and your pup frequent, or, if you can't take your furry friend off your own property (if you're a cat parent, for example), even just your own backyard! At least two locations are preferred (or one spot with different looks - like a walking trail that passes trough an open meadow but also goes through the woods), so that we'll end up with a greater variety of shots.

Sessions are available on weekends and holidays year-round, and I try to schedule most sessions for either first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon, to take advantage of the best lighting conditions. Thanks to the lovely long days we get in the summer, I can also schedule a limited number of sessions on weekday evenings from June through September.

There are four session options for you to choose from:

Standard - $250
The session for everyone!

  • Up to two hours of shooting

  • Treats & toys during the session
  • Travel up to 100km each way (an additional travel charge may be applicable for longer distances)
