1. Book Your Session
When you feel you are ready to book your session, simply click the Booking Enquiry button below to get started. I am currently available for sessions Monday-Saturday. Sessions are best performed during late afternoon hours as this is when outdoor lighting is best. Should the weather be uncooperative the day of your session, we'll work together to reschedule to another date at no extra charge.
*In the case of terminally ill pets, every effort will be made to schedule their sessions as soon as possible.
Once a date has been agreed upon, I will forward you the corresponding links so that you can complete the booking process online. This will include a session agreement which can be digitally signed, a questionnaire about your pet that will help me get to know them before we meet, as well as completing your session fee payment which will reserve your booking date.
2. Select Location
Now that you're all booked in, it's time to decide where the session will happen. In Greater Vancouver we're lucky to be surrounded by beautiful parks, beaches, forest trails, and unique urban settings. The 'Signature Session' fee includes up to two locations within reasonable distance. Depending on your home location, I will forward you a list of potential places I feel would be a great setting for our shoot, and we'll go from there. Of course your own home can be one of the locations and in the case of cats, in particular, I'll utilize various areas in and around the home for variety. This step is all about determining the best possible location to suit your pet. Your furry one's safety and well being are always top priority.
After selecting a location, I will send you an info sheet as to how to prepare yourself and your pet for the big day.
3. Session Day Is Here!
Now it's time for us to have some fun! Depending on the energy level and personality of your pet, we'll take the time to ease into our session with a positive meet and greet. We may need to work off some of their wiggles (if not done prior) before we get down to the actual photography.
As the pet's owner, staying calm and relaxed during the session will result in a more positive experience all around for both you and your pet and give us the best opportunity to create a stunning gallery of images full of joy and fun! Leave it to me to bring the best out of your pet while you both enjoy the experience.
As my photographic style is normally warm, bright, and colourful, should the weather not cooperate the day of our shoot, as mentioned above, we will reschedule to another day at no extra cost.
4. Choose Your Products
After our session is complete, we will arrange to meet at your home or nearby location for a viewing and product ordering appointment approximately 2 weeks after our session. For those further away, an online/phone ordering appointment will be arranged. At this time you will get to view fully edited images along with product samples as we choose a collection customized to suit you.
After placing your order and paying in full, you can expect to receive your ordered items within 3-6 weeks depending on products purchased. For local clients, I will hand deliver your order to your home at your convenience. For those out of town, your products will be shipped to you (shipping fees will apply.)
Now it's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful new images of your gorgeous pet as they grace the walls of your cozy home! And as the newest member of the Rambling Hound family, you are now eligible for special "Pack" promotions, referral bonuses, and more!
