Getting Started


 I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.  For me, they are the role model for being alive. – Gilda Radner

  1. Once you decide to schedule a session and the initial payment has been received (See “Investment” page), we will have a more in-depth, information-gathering call regarding types of images, how you want to display them, locations(s), purpose, props, dress (you and the dog), make-up, hair, your interests, your pet’s personality, size, activity level, favorite toys, tricks, and so on.

I prefer not to work with aggressive dogs.

  1. Scheduling the Session:

Please plan on a minimum of three weeks notice for scheduling purposes.  This gives me time to choose to visit the location(s), including possibly your home, prior to the session if I think that will benefit the shoot.  I also limit the number of sessions I schedule a month so I stay fresh and have time for the post-processing work.

If your pet is terminally ill, I will get to you as quickly as possible.

THE HOLIDAYS ARE FAST APPROACHING.  MAKE APPOINTMENTS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO BE SURE YOU HAVE THE IMAGES IN TIME.

  1. Reviewing the Images

Approximately two weeks after the photo session, I will have 10-15 proofs to show you that have been preliminarily processed.   They can be emailed to you in very low res files with “Proof, my name and Top Dog Photography” written on them; or we can meet in my home or yours to review them on my laptop, discuss mounting, framing, and other products you might be interested in.  Generally, an order is placed at that time.  Payment must be made at the time the order is placed. (See “Investment” page.)

I will ask you to sign a RELEASE form acknowledging that I retain the copyright for all images and may use images for advertising or display purposes.  With your specific permission, the Release will include the possible submission of images to stock agencies and magazines.

The only person you will ever talk to is me.  I am intentionally keeping my business simple, exclusive, and personal.

GIVE ME A CALL AND LET’S HAVE FUN.

MY GOALS ARE TO CAPTURE THE LOVE AND MAKE YOU SMILE!
