Frequently Asked Questions
My dog is a puppy, how will it work?
YES! Puppy milestones are that much more special as the puppy stage goes by very quickly. Capture those big (or tiny) puppy paws and clumsiness before that time is gone. The studio never has more than one client at a time and is thoroughly disinfected between sessions with top pet-safe cleaners to keep your pet safe at any stage of life.
My dog is REALLY hyper and has a hard time standing still!
Most dog parents are surprised at the shots we can get with an energetic pup! Action shots are so fun and everything in between. We make the photo session a game and find what works best for your pet to feel comfortable and safe to be themselves.
Do you only photograph dogs?
We welcome all animals! Bunny, cat, snake, you name it! We will adapt the session, lights, length of session according to your pet's needs.
Can I be in the photos too?
Of course! How the session will go is most of the photos will be shot of your pet first. We will have you (and/or the other pet parent) jump in for additional shots as well, all included!
Can I bring more than one pet?
There are packages for multiple pets of the same household. If you have a custom request outside of the packages listed here, please reach out for a custom quote.
Do you accept older pets?
Senior pets have a special place in our hearts. You never know when their last day will be and it's so special to be able to hold on to these memories forever. I will ask about any mental and/or physical restrictions your pet has in order to accomodate accordingly.
Can I take pictures behind the scenes?
Definitely! As much as it's enjoyable to be in the moment, and we will capture the high quality photos, you are welcome to capture how the process is created behind the scenes.
Where is the studio located?
We are a home studio in North Orem, UT. Once booked, you will receive directions and arrival instructions.
My whole family wants to come!
We do limit the pet family to 2 humans (with some exceptions). We like to have a controlled environment so the pet can be at ease in order for the process to flow smoothly. If you have a special request for special occasions, please send us a message to best accommodate.
Is there a deposit?
In order to book a session, a $50 deposit is required through booking. The deposit goes toward the session fee that is due at the time of the photo session. Your deposit is fully refundable only if the session is cancelled up to one day before the photo session. Day-of cancellations or reschedules will forfeit the deposit. For gifted sessions, please send us a message to make the booking and payment manually.
Can I gift a photo session to someone else?
Of course! We have gift sessions given as birthday presents, Christmas presents, and other special occasions. If you'd like to give someone the gift of their lifetime, contact us directly to plan out the pre-paid gift session.
What is the difference between a Mini Photo Session and Full Photo Experience?
We offer seasonal mini-sessions that are shorter than our full photo experiences. The full photo experience give you more time in the studio which can help your pet feel more comfortable as time passes. The full experience also includes three backdrop color options versus the two colors the mini session includes. Besides length of time and amount of backdrops, the full experience included the bubbles experience as well as an extra 10 high resolution edited photos.
