The Pet Experience

I am a little bit obsessed with my pets. I have 2 dogs and a cat. My Homeward Bound dream complete! As with most typical millennials, they are my babies. They come with me everywhere I can take them (and get puppachinos along the way). We spoil them. We love them. I know you do too.
I once referred to my house as a "dog museum" because quite frankly I have covered my walls in photos of the things I love - and you should to. I want to capture your furry love exactly how you remember them. I have always cherished the bonds people have with their pets and frankly - dog people are my people :) 

Sometimes you never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory

It all starts with a email. I will send you a full pricing list to review and we will pick a time to talk on the phone to go over details. On the call,  we will chat about your ideas and how you envision your shoot. Once we pick a date, I will send over a booking proposal complete with a questionnaire, contract, and information on how to pay your session fee. Your session fee is the only thing due at the time of booking. Once you complete the booking proposal and I receive your payment, I will countersign your contract and send an email with a link to your own personal portal where all your photos and info will live. 

1. Say Hello

2. The Session

About a week before your session we will touch base to finalize details like location and time. Generally, I aim for the hour or two before sunset for optimal light. You can do your shoot at up to two locations. Many of my clients like to start at home and finish up at a nearby outdoor location for the best of both worlds.

PS. While it might seem that most of my pets pictured here are off leash they are NOT! We keep dogs on leashes unless we are somewhere safe and trust their recall 100%

3. Photo Reveal

Once your session is complete we will schedule a time for you to come into my office, located in Mt Airy, Philadelphia (between Chestnut Hill and Germantown), to view your photos for the first time. During your meeting I will go over all your archiving options from digital to print to wall art and albums. Everything you could want is available. Together we will make sure you get everything you need to properly archive your photos. I am more than happy to guide you through the process and make suggestions along the way. 

4. DON'T WORRY- YOU GET AN ONLINE GALLERY TO!

After purchasing your heirloom items during the meeting you will also get access to an online gallery you can share with family and friends. If you purchased the digital files they will be available for digital download here. You, as well as whoever you share the gallery with, will be able to order additional prints and items in case there is anything you forget to snag in the meeting. 

5. YOUR BEAUTIFULLY PRESERVED MEMORIES ARRIVE 

Digital items are delivered via digital download and custom USB drive. Once all your items are delivered to me and packaged up nicely I will shoot you an email to coordinate pick up or delivery. I will also happily hang wall art you order including custom frames. Don't forget to save your digital photos in more than one place for safe keeping.

The Process

Pet Portraits starting at only $200

My goal is to capture your pets exactly as you remember them. This is also why we allot for time at two different locations. Sometimes it is best to start at home in a space they are comfortable with. I always spend some time getting to know them first before getting my camera out (sorry not sorry if I accidentally greet them first when I come in).

Lifestyle Portraits

Every session is tailored to the needs of each individual dog. I have a list of cool locations so if you don't have any ideas already - that's ok! Whether it's a first birthday cake smash, playing catch in the park, or spending a last day together before they cross the rainbow bridge - your memories deserve to be preserved. 

Remember when I said my house was like a dog museum? Well, I am pretty sure it got that way because I just HAD to test out all the amazing ready-to-hang wall art options that exist. I have curated a few of my favorites to offer to you. You should be able to see your sweet pup's face every single day. 

Alexa is absolutely amazing!  We joked with Alexa that we'd come out of a session feeling like it was chaos (with a baby and dog not cooperating) and then be blown away at the pictures as she was able to capture the absolute perfect moments that we will cherish forever. She's amazing at her job but also just so fun and great to work with, it's like seeing an old friend each time we are with her! Her beautiful work lines the walls of our home and we enjoy them each and every day.

I highly recommend Alexa! She took photos of me and my dog and was extremely patient with my high-energy pup. She worked diligently to capture his attention and was very accommodating regarding locations both inside and outside of my home. Alexa's vision and style are unparalleled and her level of service is what makes her the best in the business!
