This is the type of session the majority of our clients choose. We shoot on location in or around your home, favorite park, beach, field or pond. We can work in just about any environment you select assuming we can obtain the appropriate permissions. If you don't have a site in mind, we can help you select from our list of pre-scouted locations.
Studio(Central Virginia) $175.00
Classical portraiture with studio lighting, backdrops and props. Generally, the look is more like something you would see in a magazine. We shoot high key, low key, grunge and fashion looks using a variety of backgrounds and lighting set-ups. While a little more controlled than our other sessions, we still have fun.
Adventure/Action Starting at $300.00 per half day
These sessions are designed primarily for sporting and working breeds in a semicontrolled environment. In the field, duck blind or jumping arena, these images are designed to capture the action created by you and your animal companion working as a team. Preparation is extremely detailed covering location, attire, props and risks. This is hands down the most fun and exciting photography we do. We are so confident that you will agree, we offer this guarantee. "If you don't absolutely love at least one of the proofs we send you, we will return half of your session fee."
Before it's too late. For the elderly or terminally ill pet. We will capture a lasting image of your companion. These sessions are low-key, low stress and relatively short in duration. A client favorite for this type of image is to process in Black & White. B&W photos really bring out the character in an older pet.
Breeders Package $225.00
Designed for registered animal breeders. We shoot on location and provide you with ten high-resolution, professionally edited digital files suitable for publishing in both print and electronic media. Images of both Dame & Sire as well as representative litter shots are provided. This session can be customized to your needs.
We also specialize in Animal Event Photography – Field Trials, Hunt Tests, Dock Dogs, Equestrian Events, etc. Pricing varies. Please contact us for further information
