Step by Step Guide


As a pet photographer I specialize in celebrating the relationship between you and your pet. From our first conversation where we discuss your vision and any special needs, to your final ordering session where I help you select your final products, everything is designed to make sure your pet knows just how much you love them.


Step One

Let's Chat


 Chances are you have never done this before and  you may not have a lot of confidence in how your pet will do.  Rest assured this is all I do, so it's important that the first thing we do is have a conversation.  That may be through booking a free phone consultation or through messaging me. My goal is to answer all your questions and address any fears you may have.  I also want to hear all about your pet and what your expectations are. We won't move on to the next step until you are comfortable with the process.


Step Two:

Book your Session


To book your session you will be asked to sign a contract and pay a minimum purchase retainer. Most sessions have a standard minimum purchase retainer of 450. This amount will be saved to reserve your photoshoot and given as a product credit during your ordering session. (Note: Retainers are waved for Rainbow Bridge Sessions)


Step Three:

The Meet and Treat


Generally a short meeting, the Meet and Treat is an opportunity for your pet to become familiar with me and for me to learn of any special needs. A meet and treat session is required for in-home sessions, however if your session is outdoors or in the studio and you feel your pet does not need this extra step, you can fill out an online questionnaire instead.


Step Four:

The Photoshoot


Time will be taken at the beginning of our session to introduce my equipment to your pet. I want them to feel comfortable and relaxed, in fact your pet will dictate our timeline. It's not unusual for us to spend quite a bit of time together before I even pick up my camera. Photoshoots generally last one hour but please be flexible and allow 1-3 hours, this allows plenty of time for playing, potty breaks and fun.


Step Five:

The Ordering Session


My favorite part of this process is revealing your artwork. By this point I have already narrowed down your images to the best and have completed some basic edits. During your session you will finally be able to view and narrow down your images to your favorites. We will then work together to find the best products that meet your needs. 


Product Gallery / Pricing


I have spent countless hours curating only the highest quality products. Everything I offer is made in the USA , with many items made locally in Indianapolis. You will have a chance to see those products first hand during your ordering session, however I also have them available to explore online.
