PRIVATE PET PHOTOGRAPHY
CAPTURING YOUR MOST GENUINE MOMENTS
Capture and preserve those moments most precious to you.
Experience the white glove experience.
Whether you're wondering how you will prepare for your session, where the session will take place, or if your dog has what it takes to sit still for portraits - don't worry. I am here to guide you every step of the way and help the hard decisions be easy.
The entire experience is personalized to you - and in the end, you'll hang amazing artwork on your walls and say "I'm so happy I did that!"
Step 1: Complete the inquiry form.
I'm here to capture the raw, genuine moments you share with your pets throughout their lifetime. Because they deserve to be remembered.
Step 2: Let's meet!
We'll hop on a Zoom call to get to know one another and make sure we're a great fit! This is also a great time to learn more about you, your preferences, and what you're looking for in a photographer.
Step 3: It's planning time
Once you're ready to move forward, I'll send over your paperwork along with a questionnaire on your specific preferences, inspiration, locations, etc. If you need help planning it all out, I'm your guy every step of the way!
Step 4: Your scheduled session
Once the big day arrives, I'll be there to document the raw, genuine moments with your pets. My focus is on telling their story simply and elegantly, whether at home or outdoors.
Step 5: Ordering Appointment
Shortly after your session, we’ll have the photo reveal and ordering chat via Zoom where you can select your favorites. We’ll work together to curate your wall art and pick out the best products for you!
"I am not a big fan of having pictures taken of myself so this isn’t normally something I would have sought out to do! But I had such an amazing experience! CJ made me feel very comfortable, and he was absolutely amazing with my pups especially because they were nervous! I think we all enjoyed ourselves more than we ever knew we would!"
All sessions include a planning call over Zoom, the portrait session, and a product consultation. Edited images are able to be viewed at the product consultation, which will take place up to 2 weeks after the portrait session. Any portraits you purchase will then be further edited to ensure they are top-quality and all leashes will be removed from the images.
So you have your photos done... now what?
Photos are to be enjoyed, not stuck in a box or deep within the cloud never to be seen again!
Once your portraits are ready to go, we'll go over your options for displaying your new artwork in your home or office.
You'll see exactly what your artwork will look like on your wall before you buy and be able to see samples of the products as well.

(Financing options available)
What if My Dog Won't Sit Still?It’s OK! I only need a fraction of a second to take a fantastic picture of your dog – no matter how fast they’re moving.
What if It Rains/Storms/Hails?If the weather happens to be bad, I will do my best to reschedule the photography session for another day. It’s not the end of the world!
What if I Need to Cancel or Reschedule?If you request to cancel the photoshoot or fail to show for the arranged photographic event time, all monies, including the non-refundable reservation retainer, shall be forfeited to the photographer. If you desire to reschedule, you are allowed to reschedule one time for any reason. After that, there is a $50 rescheduling fee.
Can I prepare for and be in the photos too?Of course! I recommend you dress appropriately for the weather and location the photo shoot will be taking place, but you are more than welcome to join in the photos!
Do you only photograph dogs?I specialize in working with only dogs and cats! They’re fun and easy to work with and also what I encounter the most often 🙂
What About Leashes?It’s totally OK if you’re dog is on a leash – even for the entire session! Leashes can be easily edited out of the picture so you can’t even tell one was used.
Where Does the Portrait Session Take Place?When you book your session, you have two options: either at your home or at an outdoor location, such as the dog park, a park, or some other urban adventure. I have a list of 10 recommended locations in the Colorado Springs area and I am sure we can find the perfect fit for you and your dog!
