Have you ever had a photo session with your dog or pet? Are you thinking about it? Are you concerned about how your pet will “behave”? What about the weather? Locations? Do you wonder how the whole process works? I’m here to tell you the details of what happens when you make the decision to book with me! There is a lot that goes into the process of making sure that your experience with Pant the Town Photography is an amazing one – I’m not going to leave you hanging!
1. Fill Out An Inquiry Form
It’s time to jump in! You can’t wait to learn more about a Pant the Town Pet Photography experience for you and your four leggeds! The first step is to fill out that inquiry form. Do you have specific “shots” that you would love of your pet? A favorite location? Maybe you saw one of my unique barnwood framed prints and you NEED this in your life! Fill out that form right here:
2. Schedule a Discovery Call
Easy peasy! It’s time to schedule a quick 15 minute chat. This is where I learn all about your amazing dog and how we can work together to create something beautiful for your home! If we connect and this seems like the perfect fit for both of us, you will make a session fee deposit of $250. This secures your date on my calendar and proceeds to the next exciting step 3! I will also be putting a Session Planning Guide in the mail to you that you will receive within the week after you book. (If you want to skip filling out the inquiry form, no problem at all!)
3. Session Planning
It’s time to start planning our photo shoot! Woohoo! Does your dog do best in his own backyard? Do you love sunrise at the beach with your pooch? Maybe you have a favorite hiking trail. What about art? Do you picture a beautiful wall collage of your dog in your living room above the sofa? Or how about a stunning album that tells a story from our hiking adventure? This is when we go over all of the details of your photo session. Here I give you a few options. If you know you are longing for a collection of framed pictures for your wall, I will come to your home for planning. We begin the design process and also I get to meet you and “Fido” before the big day! I also throw in some wardrobe tips – I promise you that you will love being a part of the photos! If you are still on the fence about art, we schedule our planning via zoom – these days, we are all experts in the “virtual” world! Throughout the planning process I will share mock-ups and videos with you to get your wheels turning. Don’t worry, you don’t have to make any decisions until you see the photos!
If you are more comfortable meeting by zoom these days, I am happy to schedule a virtual call with you to do our planning session!
4. The Photo Session
The day is here! This is where the fun begins! Relax and get rid of all those expectations – your dog will do great, I promise! My goal is to have you enjoy the experience. Let your dog be the dog that they are! We will do posed, candids, action and focus on the images you have at the top of your list first! And I will add some of my ideas – time for some magic!
5. Ordering Appointment
WOOHOO! The day is here that you get to see the pictures and order your art for your home! This takes place 3-10 days after our photo session. We either meet up at my studio here in Georgetown at 28 West Main St., or I come to you! We watch a video slideshow of the images on a TV screen, you choose your favorites and place your order. Not sure how to narrow things down or which products to purchase? I’m here to help! This should be fun and stress-free!
Your art has arrived! 6-8 weeks after our order session, your art is delivered to me. You are welcome to schedule a time to pick it up, or I offer specific delivery times during the week if that fits into your schedule. I promise you will LOVE your new artwork of you and your pet!
Are you ready to book your Pant the Town photo session experience? I look forward to talking with you!
This week’s post is part of a pet photographer blog circle. Next up Dallas – Fort Worth pet and equine photographer Tracy Allard of Penny Whistle Photography talks about why it’s important to capture both the big, and the small details of you and your horse. Enjoy!
