In-Home Family and/or Pet Photography Shoot


Session Fee: $325.00 

The session fee includes the following:

Getting to know you and your pet questionnaire.

Pre-session consultation at your home. Yes, things like time and clothing for the shoot can be discussed via phone or email. Nothing, though, beats personal one on one time for building a rapport. My primary goal is to help you get the kind of photo session you want that results in keepsake images. In-home shoots offer the greatest opportunity to capture natural behavior and interactions. 

Pre-session location shoot. After you decide on the areas within your home and/or your yard for the photo session, I'll photograph them, checking for lighting and effective natural backdrops.

Photo session at your home.  I view this time together as a play-date, where I get the privilege of observing and photographing a family interacting with each other and their beloved pet(s).

Post processing of the best images from your session.

Artistic fee of talented digital artist *Kristen of hotdigitaldawg,com Kristen will digitally paint an image of your choice and upload the painting on her Redbubble on-line print shop, where you can purchase it as a print, canvas, pillow, tote bag, coffee mug, etc. Samples of Kristen's work are on my website, as well as on hers. 

Your images will be done within two weeks of your photo session. I will contact you and schedule time to meet at my office to view your gallery of at least 60 images and to discuss purchasing options.  I offer five free digital copies of your choice. Package deals available for additional digital copies of photos within your gallery, as well as other photo products.

A retainer of $50.00 is due when booking your session. The remainder of your session fee is due at the time of your shoot. If you need to reschedule, I will gladly do so without any additional fees. However, there’s no refund of the retainer for cancellations.

*Please note I retain copyright of all images taken, as well as reserve the right to use all work in portfolios, competitions, exhibitions and promotion of Take to Heart Images. Prices subject to change without notice.

* I'm thrilled to work with Kristen, digital artist of Hot Digital Dawg , where your pet photos, as well as mine, can be turned into colorful and fun works of art through masterful digital painting :
