Commemorate your best friend with a custom pet portrait session.  Professional pet photographer Pet Love Photography is committed to creating unique, custom artwork that is a meaningful way of having your pet with you forever. Sadly, as anyone who has loved a pet knows, our beloved pets live much shorter lives than we do. A custom pet portrait session is the perfect way to remember and honor your furry (or feathered*) friend.

 

CUSTOM PET PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Your pet portrait session is customized to fit your needs. We shoot on location in your home or another place that you love. We will take the time needed to make sure your pet(s) is comfortable. Most sessions last between 60-90 minutes. Additional time can be booked at an hourly rate. We also offer a comprehensive "A Day in the Life" session where we document your pet's day. We serve both the Greater Cincinnati area and the San Francisco Bay Area  and schedule sessions in both locations based on our travel schedule. We love to travel, so portrait sessions outside of our local areas are also available. Contact us for a custom quote.

 

WHAT YOUR SESSION BOOKING FEE COVERS

Your session booking fee covers the time and talent of the photographer: a pre-session consultation (in person or over the phone or via Skype), your scheduled session time, and a follow-up reveal ordering session held in person (or via Skype as circumstances warrant.) A few select images from your session will be retouched and professionally finished prior to your in person ordering session. We work with you to build a portrait collection that fits your needs. Limited travel is also included in your session booking fee and an additional charge may be incurred depending on regional scheduling. Some sessions may include a print credit you can apply to your order.

Your images are captured in raw color format on a digital SLR camera. After our session, the best images are handpicked, with a select few getting the full, Pet Love Photography professional editing** treatment prior to presentation. The best images are presented in a slideshow during your ordering session. Most clients receive for viewing between 10-25 images from our time together. More images are presented for those choosing the "A Day in the Life" session.

To help your session go more smoothly, please familiarize yourself with our studio policies.

 

MEMORIES MEANT TO LAST

All prints and products are produced professionally by the best vendors in the industry. We use a variety of vendors around the country to provide you with the best product options and pricing. All products are of archival quality where appropriate, because memories are meant to last. All prints are produced with a minimum archival standard of 100 years, so your images can be enjoyed for generations to come.

 

SILVER PAW LEGACY SESSIONS

We also offer special legacy sessions for older (typically, age 10 and up) or  terminally ill pets. These sessions are offered at a discount from our standard session and usually are much shorter in length. Silver Paw Legacy Sessions can be scheduled at short notice or on an emergency basis, as we understand how important it is to capture memories of our beloved family members while we can. (If we cannot accommodate the timing of your request, we will refer you to another professional pet photographer.) All client purchases from a Silver Paw Legacy Session will generate a donation to San Francisco's Muttville Senior Dog Rescue as we at Pet Love Photography strongly believe in pawing it forward.

 

*We primarily photograph dogs and cats, but other pets are welcome subjects.

**Professional editing includes all basic adjustments, minor touch-ups and finishing. Additional retouching (heavy blemishes, excess stray hairs or fur, head swaps, thick leashes or collars, etc.) is available at our hourly editing rate of $150, with a minimum of one hour purchased. Depending on the complexity of your requests, additional hours may be charged and will be quoted up front.
