session basics

Contact me to schedule your photography session.  Email is the best way to reach me, but you may also leave me a voice mail message at the number below.

Sessions normally last between  1 and  1.5 hours, and will be at a local outdoor pet-safe park, playground,  downtown area, or other location.  For very shy pets who might be less comfortable in a busy public place, or for older pets with mobility issues, the session can be held in your yard or home.

Shutterdog clients are generally within a 50 mile radius of Frederick County (Winchester), VA.  Please contact me if you live outside this area and are interested in scheduling a session.

Sessions may be rescheduled for hazardous weather and other unforeseen events.

If you have a terminally ill pet that you would like me to photograph, please let me know and I will arrange a special session for you and your pet on short notice.  You will cherish having these final  images created.


Shutterdog sessions are a casual, fun, and positive experience for you and your pet.  I will work to capture your pet’s most characteristic expressions, their quirkiness, their tricks and talents, and their special bond with you through a variety of images, ranging from candid or “documentary” to “posed”, action, up close “details”, and more – to create many options to choose from for your fine art products.


About 2 weeks after the session, I will send you a password to view your proofs (usually 15 to 30 edited images) in a private online gallery.  We will also schedule a time to review your proofs together and order your  products.
