IS YOUR PET THE NEXT PHODAWG?!?!?
PHOTO CREDIT: TYSHA HALLMAN
WE LOVE KITTIES AT PINKDANE PHODAWGRAPHY TOO!!!
It is a proven fact that art promotes healing;
which is why you see art in all the hospitals,
doctors offices, and vet offices.
Art facilitates self-worth and renews the spirit...
It has a profound effect on us in so many ways.
Art reduces stress, promotes mental and physical
well-being, along with assisting and improving the
healing process. It enriches our lives, restores
us and gives us a sense calm.
Art distracts, engages, comforts, soothes, maintains
a presence and helps to preserve memories of our
own personal individuality.
The fact that art is healing and does bring comfort is
one of the reasons that has driven me to offer you
the opportunity to be near your beloved PhotoDawg
once they are no longer here.
Our pets' lives count! The loss of a pet can be particularly
difficult because not everyone understands or feels the need
to reach out. Some can even be dismissive (“It’s just a pet” or
“Thank goodness it wasn’t someone in your family.”) But to
many pet lovers, the pain of losing a beloved pet is every bit
as piercing as losing a human loved one.
Oh, how I want to reach out and hug all pet owners who
have lost a treasured pet, …make the pain go away if I could,
but I know I cannot, so I hold them in my heart through my art
and every time they look at it, they’ll know they’re not alone.
I miss my Daniel so... If only I had a professional, fine art
portrait of his beautiful visage on my wall to muse upon
daily, but it is too late now. He is gone and I am empty handed...
Left with older grainy cell images on a hard drive.
Would you like to honor your pet? Call today to make an appointment to come into the studio and talk to me, Pink. Your PhotoDawg has a “Dawgy Dais” awaiting and is a place of honor. They will be treated as royalty during their PhotoDawg’s session.
During your first initial conference, you can fill out a pet waiver and pet model release while you are here, and we can go over the Do’s and Don’ts for your session.
If an appointment is made, I will give you a printed copy of Do’s and Don’ts to take home so you can familiarize yourself and get ready for the day of your very own PhotoDawg’s session.
Every fine art portrait experience at PinkDane PhoDawgraphy has a creation fee which includes: your PhoDawgrapher's "time and experience", the Portrait Session, the Ordering Session, Digital darkroom perfecting of your portraits for printing, and saving the images for 1 year.
Framed prints / Canvas’ product and are separately priced.
Prices are set according to the size and style of fine art print that you would like.
A variety of Creation Fees are offered depending upon the type of portrait experience you are looking for. After your Creation Fee, Pink will work with you to custom build a portrait collection that fits your needs.
Creation fees are due at the time of booking the session and are non-refundable. We will accommodate clients if there is a need to reschedule due to our schedule or yours.
The “HAPPY Dawg” Classic Session
Creation Fee $75
Our most popular session. The Classic session gives clients a variety of images to choose from with a collection of posed and candid shots taken in our private studio. The goal is to capture a mix of individual and group shots that highlight the relationship between you and your PhotoDawg as well as capturing all of their different expressions. The majority of images captured during this session are on the same background with owners in the same outfit.
The Happy PhoDawg Classic session includes up to *1-1.5 hour of studio time, and the ordering session in our studio all in one day. Choosing of sizes will be discussed at this time so that you can decide what would work best for your home or office.
*Plan for 2.5 hours total time, so your PhotoDawg can acclimate to the PhoDawgrapher and the Studio, as well as potty and drink times if needed.
The “DELIGHTED Dawg” Custom Indoor Session
Creation Fee $100
This specialized session is for clients looking to give each of their portraits a completely different look using a variety of backgrounds and multiple outfit changes. This custom indoor session takes place in our private studio and includes up to 2-2.5 hours of studio time and the ordering session as described in the Creation Fees Explained.
The “PLAYFUL Dawg” Classic Outdoor Session
Creation Fee $150
Our Classic Outdoor Session takes advantage of natural lighting and natural backdrops at a location of your choice! Images captured from this session are carefree and casual, creating a much different feel from the posed style that takes place in a studio session.
For this same creation fee, your portrait session can also take place in your home. Outdoor Sessions include up to 2 hours of portrait time and an ordering session in our private studio.
Additional time can be reserved for any session at a rate of $100/hr.
The “PLEASED Dawg” *Mini* Indoor Session
Creation Fee $50.00
These sessions are themed and are offered only at certain times of the year. Please check back for future dates or email Pink if you would like to be put on our email list so you will receive notifications for special events like this.
Do you need just a few good shots to choose from? Do you want the convenience of a quick 30-minute session? Do you want the quality of portraits that Pink has always offered through her years of professional photography? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then our Mini Session may be the right fit for you.
This modified session includes up to 30 minutes of studio time and the ordering session in our studio all in one day. All of the images taken in the Mini Session must include the same subject(s) in every shot (up to two subject max)
If you want a few pictures taken of your pet alone and a few of you and your pet together, then the Classic session might be a better option for you. The Mini Session is not recommended for families since we don’t photograph any combination of shots besides the family grouping.
Creation fees are “non-refundable” and are collected at the time you reserve your portrait appointment.
48 hours’ notice is required if you need to reschedule your PhotoDawg session.
Prices may change at any time.
