Lifestyle Photo Sessions

Out of concern for the health and safety of my clients, all sessions are on hold until further notice. Please follow the recommendations from the CDC on protecting you and your family from the coronavirus. If you have questions about scheduling a session later this year, please reach out. 

Stay healthy + be safe! I hope to see you soon.  ~Hannele

Lifestyle Pet 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, emergency vet visits and occasional pee on the floor. They throw a party for you when you come home and demand you fulfill your daily steps but most of all, they love you unconditionally. 

Dogs are simply THE BEST. Cats, we love you too.

My approach to pet photography builds on this connection. It's natural and authentic rather than overly posed and perfect. I aim to capture moments of love and companionship alongside a healthy dose of dog-induced chaos. Each photo experience is focused on preserving moments of your dog's unique personality and the bond you share with them. 

How does it work?

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, safe, natural setting with plenty of treats, toys and time. We meet at one of my preferred locations in the morning or evening and simply play.  

After our session, I will edit the images down to 30-40 selects and make a set of proof prints. Then we'll gather together to view the images, look through product samples and order your artwork.

Worried your dog will not behave? Don't – I love the troublemakers. Put your concerns at ease here or reach out with questions. When working with dogs, no question is too silly!

What's the Investment?

New for 2020, I will no longer charge a standard session fee. WHAT?!

Instead, to reserve your session, you will pay a reservation retainer of $500. This non-refundable retainer will become a product credit to use during your proofing session. 

Other than your product order, the only potential additional fee would be for a permit if the location you would like to photograph in requires one. For example, the National Mall and Monuments (and any NPS property) requires a $150 permit.

Clients typically invest $700-$2000 on their photo experience and artwork.

White Frame Lifestyle

Curated Product Line

My product line is built on my foundation in the fine arts. After 15 years of exhibiting for art galleries worldwide, I wanted to bring that same level of quality to my pet photography clients. One way I do this is by personally making and signing all fine art prints.

For the products I have to outsource, I've ensured my vendors share my passion for finely crafted, environmentally sustainable artwork that will last a lifetime. 

Artwork Collections

You don't fit in a box so neither should your artwork order.

I do not offer specific collections. Instead, you are welcome to build your own collection by meeting minimum criteria or you can order exactly what you want a la carte. You do you.
