Do people actually hire you to take photos of their dogs?
No, I just stole these images off the internet.(<– That was a joke, by the way – all images on this site were taken by me unless clearly stated otherwise). Yes – they do! And I love it.
How much does it cost to hire you?
Session fees start at $200 in So Cal. You can view more info on my pricing page.
Why should I hire you?
You should hire me first and foremost if you like my images! But aside from that, I’ve been photographing dogs over 5 years. There are special qualities a good pet photographer can offer when shooting your pets that a non-pet photographer may not have. Images that capture your pet’s special qualities that you’ll love, and keeping your pet safe during our shoot, are my main priorities!
How many pets can I have in my shoot?
A session fee includes up to 2 people + 2 pets. Want more? Just email me and ask.No number scares me, but if you have more than 4 subjects there’s an additional fee.
Will you come to my home?
Absolutely! I love photographing anywhere you and your pet are comfortable. Getting your pet in in their natural environment is fun – but both on location and in home shoots are options you can choose from.
How many photos will I get to see?
I guarantee a minimum of 20-25 images in your gallery. I take as many as I need during the shoot to get that number, but you won’t get to see all of them.
Why won’t I get to see all of the photos?
Not all photos are meant to be seen! If you’re blinking or your dog ran so fast the photo is blurry, I won’t show you those. I only show you the best images from our shoot – so don’t worry, I’m not hiding my favorites from you.
Do you sell digital negatives of the images?
I do! Digital file packages start at $500.
Ok, well I don’t need the CD after all. I’ll just scan in my prints.
Scanning is not permitted by Melissa – nor by the government’s copyright law.Sorry! If you want images on your computer or to reprint – you’ll need to purchase them.
