Frequently asked questions
  • Text Hover
Does my dog need to be well trained? - LOL, heck no!  It does help if they know how to sit but I'm used to working with all kinds of dogs (including my own) that are not perfectly trained.  It's my job to make sure they look at the camera and I have lots of ways to do that.  

What if my dog needs to stay on a leash?  No worries, leashes can be erased out of most images.  Harnesses will most likely stay in the photo
.  
Will we have enough time to get great images?  Yes! Please arrive a few minutes early and come ready to go so we can maximize every minute. You'll be able to select from 10-20 images in your online gallery. A full Pawdacious session (regularly $400) lasts anywhere from 1 to 2 hours but we are getting a much wider variety of images (a full session includes 20-50 images to choose from). And if you're not happy with your images I offer a money back guarantee.

What if I have more than 2 dogs?  There is an "add on" option when you book your registration.  There is an additional fee of $150 and you'll get an additional 15 minutes added to your session so we have time to capture everyone.

What if I don't need a holiday canvas because I won't put it up all year? No problem! Some images won't scream "holidays" but if you love the ones that do, I recommend that you add them to your rotating holiday decorations, and that you come back for a full session to capture artwork to add magic to your walls all year round! 

I'm not sure if I should upgrade or stay with the standard registration?  If you know that you want more than one image, a gift print, or something for your walls your best value is to book one of the upgrades.  These options are only available at the time of registration.  Additional products are available for purchase during your reveal session at a la carte prices.   

What if the weather doesn't cooperate?  These are outdoor sessions so we are weather dependent.  Cloudy skies can be perfect but if it's extremely dark/stormy I will reach out to you the day prior to reschedule to an alternate date. 

What if my dog doesn't get along with other dogs?  We'll have our own spot at Westman's with plenty of distance from anyone else.
