location sessions

for dogs and cats

Pet Photo sessions at parks, beaches and homes in the Sacramento and Greater Bay Area.

Location sessions are a custom experience at a location of your choice (I'm happy to make suggestions, too). The session lasts 60-90 minutes. Expect ~ 100 proofs to choose from. The fee includes five high resolution digital files and you have the option to order additional wall art, albums and digitals. There is a minimal travel fee for sessions further than 25 miles from Sacramento.

Please contact the photographer if you need to schedule a date that is not showing on the scheduler. Exceptions can be made. Every effort is made to fit end-of-life sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many pets can be included?

We can include more than one pet in the session but will get less variety.

My dog is not very trained and I don't think he will sit still...

The majority of people have this concern but I can assure you that it's not all about the perfect sit. Part of the fun is figuring out what works for each unique personality. If a leash must be used it can be retouched out in post production.

Can I be in the photo?

Yes, you are welcome to be in the photo. This is a simple studio set up and there will not be any bench to sit on so be prepared to sit on the ground.

What comes with the session?

Each session comes with a certain number of fully retouched, high resolution digital files (see description for how many). You also have the option to order printed products and additional digital files through the proof gallery after the session.

Can we do the session at my home?

Yes, sometimes being in the comfort of your pet's home is the perfect choice! And it's the obvious choice for cats!... If you prefer the look of the studio but are unable to come to the Sacramento studio there is a mobile studio add-on option that can be set up if there is enough space.
