Zenfolio | T&C Pet Photography | FAQ

Can you tell me a little more about your photography sessions?

Our goal in every session is simple, Creativity and Quality.

We come to your home with a small, portable-studio. Complete with lights, softboxes, backgrounds, and photography gear.

Very little room is needed for the session; we can make the tiniest of apartment’s ideal for your session.

When possible, we will also shoot around your home/yard for even more variety and uniqueness to choose from.

Sessions generally take anywhere from an hour to two hours, depending on how many pets we are photographing. (Not including our set-up and packing up).

We never look at our watch; our main goal is to have the best possible images we can get of your pet.

After your session we edit your entire session, Images are corrected for color and brightness/contrast and some will get special effects so that you have options to choose from. Once you select the portraits you like from your on-line gallery, it takes about 1 week to receive your beautiful prints.

What if my dog is not trained to sit, stay or lay down?

We will do the very best that we can to capture the best portraits of your pets. This will limit the amount of good poses we can capture. We will do our best to come up with several different solutions. This may mean using your furniture to relax and calm your pet.


What days of the week do you schedule sessions?

We can book sessions during the week and the weekends. 

How far in advance do I need to book my pet photography session?

Please try to book your pet photography session at least 1 week in advance.

What background do you use for my pet's portrait?

We like simplicity. The focus of your pet's portrait should be your pet, not the background.
We normally bring a few different (solid color) backgrounds to our sessions. We also use your home and the furniture in the pictures, for a more personalized look.

How will you handle my dog? How involved do I get to be in the shoot?

We will work with your dog directly but your help will be necessary as well. That may mean standing next to the photographer making silly noises or screaming out things like "Park", "Treats" or "Wanna go out???". You will also be the person handling the dog. Treats are used as a last resort.

The cost of adding an additional pet to your pet photography session is just a fraction of the initial session fee. Please visit the Pricing page for current pricing.

What should I do before my session? How do I get my dog ready for his/her photo shoot?

We like to recommend a nice long walk before the session for dogs who may be hyper and over excited. It usually makes for a calmer dog during the shoot.

Also please try to have your dog groomed before your session, and have some treats and squeaky toys ready if possible.
