Documentary Dog Photography
I get it. You love your dog more than you ever imagined. The day you brought them home changed your life for the better — despite the chewed up shoes, the emergency vet visits and the occasional pee on the floor. The benefits of your new family member far outweigh the responsibilities. They greet you at the door everyday with enthusiasm, they sit with you in times of stress without judgment, they require you fulfill your daily exercise requirements. Most of all, they love you unconditionally.
My approach to dog photography builds on this connection. It's natural and authentic rather than overly posed and perfect. I aim to capture those moments of love and companionship along with a healthy dose of dog-induced chaos. Each photo experience is focused on showcasing your dog's unique personality and the bond you share with them.
For your dog, the experience is simply a few hours of doing all of their favorite things. For you, it’s a fun way to take a deep breath and reconnect with what truly matters. We always photograph in a relaxed, natural setting with plenty of treats, toys and time.
Photo shoots are available throughout the year with spring and fall being the most popular. A typical shoot will run 2-3 hours and cover a few locations — indoors and out. All family members are encouraged to attend.
So tell me — what makes your pup unique?
Curated Product Line
From hard-covered books to wall displays, I have curated a product line based on my firmly held belief that all artwork should look good, feel good and be made to last. I personally make all fine art prints in-house and have worked to ensure my vendors share my passion for finely crafted, environmentally sustainable artwork.
After your session, I’ll edit the photos down to the best of the best and produce a set of proof prints. Then we will gather together to view product samples, design wall displays and order your finished artwork.*
You’ll also receive a private online gallery to proof the images at your leisure. From this gallery, you’ll be able to select favorites, download and share web-friendly watermarked files, as well as order from our full product catalog.
*For clients outside the DC-metro area, we can work remotely to design a wall display perfect for your unique space.
Documentary Photo Shoots start at $400.
The Shoot Fee includes: Color and black + white photography of up to 2 pets and family members, $100 print credit, retouching, online gallery + web-friendly watermarked files. Our curated product line is available á la carte. Depending on the location, an additional photo permit fee may be required.
Most of my clients invest between $900 - $1800 on their dog photography experience. If you are not ready for a full documentary session, check out our bi-annual Mini-Studio Session events in Washington, DC.
