The Family Session
Your family is the backbone of your life. Celebrate it! The goal of family sessions is to capture the unique dynamics of your and your loved ones. This includes parents, grandparents, children and of course, pets. The session fee holds your preferred session date and includes a $150 credit to use on any prints, wall art, or products. Products, including luxury photo albums, memory books are all available a la carte. There is no minimum to purchase but the average spend is between $500 and $1800, with many clients selecting something for their wall and an album You can spend as little as the $300 creation fee and still have a gorgeous images to enjoy. Photos by Becky limits the number of family sessions a month to ensure the highest quality attention to your family.
Watch me Grow!
Baby memories are the best! Capture your new fur (or human) baby as he grows into his paws. Celebrate four milestones ending with a birthday celebration cake smash. Session ideas include themed portraits, indoor and outdoor shoots and family portraits with the little one's new family.
The Puppy Plan includes four photo sessions over your puppy or kitten’s first months of life so that you can see how much he or she grows. Ideally, the first session is between 8-12 weeks, the second one at about 6 months, another at about 9 months and the final one at about one year.
Birthday Cake Smash
Cake smash Is it your fur baby's birthday? Each year is a major milestone for our pets. This 30 minute session includes adorable photos with a birthday party theme and a cake smash! We will photograph your pup clean (pre cake) with a birthday themed background. Then--it's Chow Time! Photos of pups eating cake is always fun! You provide the cake as many pets are picky or have food-intolerance or allergies. Make it yourself or ask for pet bakery suggestions. This is fun for the whole family.
Our pets are family. They always greet us at the door like we are the best thing in the world. To them, we are. As a supporter of pet adoptions, Photos by Becky wants to thank you for changing the life of one animal. Please accept our generous offer of a complimentary session with your new fur baby and his family.
This is a full session that may include the whole immediate family. Typically in the studio, everyone will be able to relax in a stress-free and distration-free environment. I'll gift you with digital images on Facebook.
"Becky is a superb photographer of both pets and pet parents. We recommend her for taking photos of your precious family members both two- and four-legged. She also generously donates her professional photography services to Renegade Paws Rescue to photograph adoptable dogs and cats for their very important profiles."

So you have your photos done... now what?
Your photos are meant to be enjoyed, not end up in a box high up in a closet somewhere or deep within the online cloud never to be seen again!
Once you get your final gallery delivered, revisit the plan we made during the consultation for displaying your new artwork in your home or office. If you want to browse through the catalog PDF, click here.
What about clothes or props for a themed shootWe have a great selection of props and different backgrounds. We encourage clothes but limit each session to 5 outfit changes. You need to provide clothing that fits your pet best. Then your pup can strut his or her stuff on our catwalk-ing backdrop! Not a fan of dressing up? No worries. We’ll photograph “naked” pets all day!
What if my dog has to be on-leash?No problem! The majority of the dogs are on-leash (either for safety reasons or following leash-laws). Whenever possible I’ll remove the leash when editing your photos.
I have multiple pets....and family members. Can they come too?Bring everyone! The more the merrier!
What should I bring?Toys and treats are a great way to get your pup to look at the camera. This will help to motivate them to cooperate during the session. Come armed with your pet’s favorite toys and treats. We have our own toy chest and cookie jar but there’s nothing like homemade goodies. For environmental shoot, I understand the need for leashes and harnesses. You pet's safety is the most import thing! For the photos, it's best to use a thin, solid color leash that is not distracting. Harnesses cannot be guaranteed to be edited out.
I’m afraid my pet will be camera shy.Don’t worry. Working with a wide variety of temperaments I have developed techniques for working with dogs who need more space and/or time to relax. Perhaps an in-home or backyard session would be appropriate.
Are the photos retouched?Editing (color correction, toning and cropping) is done to every image we preview. All purchased images receive a special touch to make the subjects “pop.” Want additional or special edits? Just ask.
But...I don't want to be in the photosThat’s a-okay! This can be a true dog’s day to shine. But it’s always a good idea to be ready in case of a last minute change of heart.
May I post the photos on social media?Yes! You are absolutely allowed to share your images on social media. Photographer credit is always greatly appreciated.
The cats don't travel well.Not a problem. I can always come to you. The photos at your home will be more casual but often with pets that don't travel well, photographing at home may ease their anxiety and it's less stressful for everyone.
How should I prepare for the purrrfect shoot?Groom your pet and groom yourself too! Pet grooming can be a full salon visit or just a good ol’ brush down at home. It’s a good idea for you to wear makeup and solid color clothes that don’t identically match your pet’s fur color. A great way to capture your pet’s attention is to bring them tired and hungry. Before mealtime and after a long walk is ideal. That way, a hungry, tired dog will pay attention to just about anyone with a treat.
My dog will NEVER sit still long enough for a photoIf a dog sat still, he’d be a statue. That’s the fun in pet photography--getting the active animals in a comfortable environment where they can relax and let it all hang out. I work with treats, balls, squeaky toys or whatever grabs your pet's attention. I always spend a few minutes with the animals letting them know how they can get the beloved treat. The dog moves fast. The camera moves faster.
How long does a session normally last?Your session time will be based upon your pets. I suggest up to 2 hours depending on the personality of your pet. You’ll know when they are done.
How far in advance should I book my session?I’m normally booked out two to three weeks in advance. This time period is subject to change depending on the time of year. Fall and spring tend to be the busiest time for photographing pets outdoors. Summer time is busiest in the air conditioned studio.
What about cats? Exotics? Guinea Pigs? Chickens?Not a problem. I can always come to you! It is an honor to come into your home and photograph your special family member. The photos at your house will be more casual but often with pets that don’t travel well, it eases their anxiety and it's less stressful for everyone. Any pet is welcome in the studio. I’d love to photograph them! Birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, reptiles, ferrets, hedgehogs and more. I’m up to the creative challenge!
