Rates and FAQs (rev. 9/11/23)

Let's be honest and call this what it is -- custom pet photography is an investment in something that will bring you joy and warm memories for years to come. My session isn't a general family session where the pet is included in a couple of photos - there are plenty of photographers who can cover that. My work focuses on your pet(s) as the priority and further documents your beautiful and meaningful relationship. If you are interested in a true pet session, then please do give a shout.

Although this is a business, it is also my passion. Session and product rates are very affordable allowing most people to be able to pursue this as an opportunity to create lasting memories. Trust me on affordability as I've compared prices with other local pet photographers, most recently here in the Charleston SC area, where even newcomers hit the scene with surprisingly high rates! I personally prefer to make this less about pressure and numbers, and more about you choosing the images and quality products you love and want to last for a lifetime. Once we schedule your session, I will send out guide documents that include most everything you may need to know before your session.

Session Rates

Outdoor Session ($175): One-hour outdoor session includes up to two people and two pets; $25 per head charge for additional participants. Typically held at a local park or scenic location - I have a location list you can review or we can look at a place that is meaningful to you.

Studio Session ($175): One-hour session includes up to two subjects; $25 per head charge for additional participants. Studio is located in Goose Creek - small, but an effective use of space!

Mobile Studio Session ($250): One-hour session at your home offering multiple backgrounds and studio lighting. I come to you and your pets! Ideal for pets who spook in new places and may be more comfortable being photographed in their own home. Learn more about studio sessions here.

Legacy Session. Please click here to read about my program for terminal pets.

Session Rates quoted above do not include digitals, prints or products, which are priced separately as both packages and with a la carte items. In some cases, a trip charge may apply. For all orders, related S/H, and sales tax are not included. Unless otherwise indicated, S/H and any applicable sales tax are not included in special offers.

Deposit. At the time of scheduling, a $50 non-refundable deposit will be required to confirm your session, effective May 1, 2023. The session will not be considered confirmed on my calendar until the deposit is received. The deposit will be applied to your session fee, but will not be returned to you if you cancel altogether. So please be sure before you commit. Reschedules can be accommodated, but actual cancellations mean I will retain the deposit.

Wall art, custom albums, and other items may be ordered under packages or as a la carte, with add-ons available. These can be discussed at the time of an in-home preview for those who request that option, or will be posted in the gallery dropdown menu. When your proofs are ready, you will be provided access to a product page that shows corners, backing, product depth, etc.

Minimum Purchase Requirement for Prints/Products: $150 after any discounts are applied. (For sessions held after 1/1/24, there will be no minimum ordering requirement.)

Discounts: Rescued pets, military (active or retired) and LEOs receive 10% ordering discount.

Trip Charge: Nominal charge may apply depending on your location - please inquire.

Editing Time: No charge for routine edits but, if extensive edits are requested, additional fees may apply. Things like leash removals, light skin filtering, are included, but challenging edit requests that are more time consuming may incur a fee. If your project looks like the edits or your requests will be cumbersome, we will chat about it beforehand so there are no surprises. Also, if you notice a particular edit AFTER your order is delivered and you did not request it at the time of your order, the reprint will be invoiced to you to cover the costs of editing, production and shipping.

Third party print/product prices are subject to change without notice. Session rates listed are current as of 9/11/23 (and have not changed since 2019).
