Frequently Asked Questions

What if my dog can't be off leash?

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret - 99% of the dogs I photograph are on leash. Leashes can be edited out in post-processing fairly easily. So rest assured, we'll get photos of your dog "off leash!"





What level of training does my dog need? 

NONE!! Well, if he/she knows their name that's helpful, but your dog does not need to be an agility star by any means. While a high level of training is great, it's not required to get great photos.

Can I be in the photos with my dog?

Yes, yes, yes, please!!!

I encourage that owners be in photos with their dogs. 


Where do sessions take place? How far do you travel?

There are some really nice dog-friendly spots in Chittenden County that are great for photos that I'll suggest, but I'm open to ideas! If you have a special spot you like to go with your dog, let me know. I will travel as far as I need to (within reason!) For locations outside of a 50 mile radius of Colchester, VT there is a travel fee of $1/mile traveled.

My dog is reactive. How do you handle that?

I also have do I put it nicely...difficult dog at home so I understand reactive dogs! This dog in particular inspired me to learn more about dog behavior and I hold a certificate in Applied Animal Behavior through the University of Washington as well as a training certification through Animal Behavior College. We can take extra time with your dog, doing some desensitization and counter-conditioning to me and my camera using positive reinforcement if necessary. If there's a location your dog is most comfortable at, we can definitely do the session there. As for dogs with a bite history toward people, let's chat before booking a session. Safety and comfort for your dog is my number one priority.

What happens if it rains?

If 2023 taught us anything, it was to be flexible in the event of wet weather. The last thing we want is soggy looking dogs in photos so if it looks like it's going to rain...cats and dogs...we'll reschedule! Same goes for super cold weather in the wintertime. No worries!

Do you do commercial work? Photos for websites?

Yes! I love working with breeders to create high-quality images of their dogs that show conformation and personality! Photos speak a thousand words and you want to tell the world how great your dogs are, right?

Visit Wright's Mountain Goldens to see my work with their dogs!
