Before & After / Edmonton Pet Photographer

It has been awhile since I shared a before and after. This is a great way to address a few questions that come about on a session or consult.

When a client views the portraits from their pets session the see rough images.  Very little work goes on prior to ordering.  I know there are some photographers out there that do edit prior to viewing.  For me that isn’t the most efficient method. If i did this it would take months for a client to see their images.

This also allows me to show you that dogs who can NOT be off leash can still be photographed.  Quite simply there are dogs that are not good off leash; some are reactive, some areas/locations are not safe or allow off leash and some just need to be kept still. 😉 A large number of my clients are in fact shot on leash.


Dog Days of Summer / Edmonton Pet Photographer

Don’t you just love the summer months!  I sure do and so do my dogs. We try to get outside and have fun whenever we can.  Everything from the dog park, hikes in the country side or just some backyard lounging.  Summer also means tasty seasonal treats.  Our dogs eat a lot of fruits and veggies, watermelon is a favorite!

Dog your dog have a favorite?  Maybe give watermelon a try.  It’s healthy for the whole family.
