Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions And I've got answers

I offer home visits for all of Louisville! I am also totally open to traveling outside of Louisville (Lexington, New Albany, Cincinnati, etc.), but this has to be discussed and approved prior to booking your session. This may result in an extra charge, depending how far you are.

My studio location is constantly changing! This allows me to move around and offer photo shoots around the midwest! 

These spaces are either rented studios or pop-ups within local businesses. If you join my email list, you will be updated any time new studio dates/cities are announced!

If you have a location request for a studio pop-up, please let me know.

In the event that you need to reschedule your session, I ask for a 48hr notice. Anything less than that will result in a forfeit of your deposit.

Of course, if you have some sort of unforeseeable event/emergency, I am understanding of the fact that things happen, especially when animals are involved. If you have to cancel or reschedule your photo shoot due to an emergency, please be sure to let me know as soon as possible. 

I accept cash, check, and card. 

Of course you can! 

I’m asked this question a lot, and it’s funny because barely any of my clients ever sit still! I want your pet to be their normal, goofy, happy selves during their shoot. 

Whether my subjects are in the shelter and completely untrained, or a baby raccoon that has no clue what I’m doing, it always works out — you would have no clue how nuts it was behind the scenes. I’ve got a lot of tricks up my sleeve! 

Not only am I able to freeze motion very quickly, so silliness is encouraged, but if I catch them on a particularly wiggly day there are a lot of ways to work around it.

I will never force your pet to participate in anything that is scaring them. 

We will spend the first few minutes of our session getting them used to the space. I will flash my lights a few times, let them poke around the backdrop and give them a chance to get comfortable with me. For this to work best, they need to trust me. 

After that, if we decide together that your pet is way too afraid of me or of my lights, you will either be refunded your deposit or have the chance to try again in a home session. This has only happened once, but we can never be too careful about keeping our pets comfortable and safe. 

99.9% of the time, this is a really fun experience for all of the animals involved!! Treats, endless praise, cuddles, toys, performing tricks, peanut butter and crazy noises make this a blast for them and for their owners! 

Yes! I have a big collection of bows, outfits, hats, bandanas and plenty of set props! Feel free to text me (614.940.6763) to get into the nitty gritty here! We can make sure I have what you’re looking for and brainstorm together.

If you’re hoping for something specific or have a favorite outfit, please bring these from home!

If you’ve scheduled a home visitplease make sure there is a cleared space on a hard floor available for me to set up on. 

My gear consists of one studio light and an 8′ long backdrop. If you’re unsure about your space, please reach out at 614.940.6763 and we can schedule a time to video chat and look at it together. Where there’s a will, there’s a way! You’d be surprised how many odd little spaces I’ve been able to squeeze into! 

If you’ve got a high energy dog, it really helps to give them a walk or play with them before their photo shoot. Don’t exhaust them, we still want to see that excitement, but this will help to manage those wiggles a bit!

You will be receiving a gallery that is bigger than just your selected package. This way, you have a variety of photos to choose from. If you can’t narrow your favorites down, you will have the option to purchase additional downloads. I will walk you through this during our gallery premiere.

Seeing your reaction to your gallery is one of my favorite parts of this whole process. It’s impossible not to form a bond with the owners I work with, as well as all of the incredible pets, so being able to see your face while scrolling through your gallery and hear which photos affect you the most means so much to me.

This will take place over zoom and be the first time you get to see your gallery. Once we’ve gone through it together, I will show you how to select the photos you’d like to keep, how to download your photos, and how to order additional photographs & artwork!

All artwork is produced in a professional print lab, only accessible to professional working photographers. Artwork includes canvas wraps, either with or without a float frame, printed on premium canvas and wrapped around a stretcher bar. These look beautiful as a collection of 10×10 prints, or on their own as an 11×14 piece in the living room that brings you a smile each time you walk past it. I also offer mounted prints, fully framed and matted prints, photo albums and more! Artwork pricing and design will be broken down during our gallery premiere!

I highly suggest avoiding this for multiple reasons:

  • When you order prints from a place like Walgreens, CVS, Shutterfly, Mpix, etc, you are essentially ordering different photographs. Only professional print labs, specifically used for photography, have the specific machines and technicians that will provide prints high in quality and true to color. Professional print labs have the top products that will last and the expertise to uphold the quality of the image.
  • Even before going to the lab, only your photographer can correctly resize and edit your photo for your chosen piece of artwork. Without this step, you will lose a lot of quality in your photograph.

I care so much about my clients. I want your photographs to be enjoyed for a very long time. After our time together and your investment in a unique set of quality images, of course they should be displayed at their best!
When you order your artwork through your photographer, you are directly supporting me, my work and my small business. When you order prints elsewhere, you are instead supporting Walgreens, CVS, Shutterfly and Mpix.
