My dog is a little (insert adjective here; shy, hyper, nervous) and I am worried you won’t get any good photos. Ron has taken thousands of pictures of dogs with all different kinds of personalities and has always gotten the shot. During each session, he take at least 500 photos so he can safely say there will be some keepers. If you are wary of how it’s going to go, give us a call or shoot us an email so we can discuss any possible behavior challenges. That being said, sometimes we don’t know if the dog is terrified of the sound of the shutter or the flash of a light until Ron starts taking pictures. Ron's sessions are laid back and we will take our time to spend some extra time with your four-legged family member to get them comfortable with us and the camera using positive reinforcement techniques – usually treats…or a toy.
How many dogs can I bring to the session? Your session can include multiple dogs from the same household but there is an additional fee for more than two dogs.
Do you do outdoor shots or home visits? Yes! Those can be arranged. There may be an added fee depending on travel/location. Reach out to Amy at as@looseleashes for more information.
How does the process work?
- BOOK A SESSION: To reserve a spot on Ron's calendar, please pay the $250 deposit box required to secure your spot on Ron's schedule.
- SAY CHEESE (or whatever your treat of choice is): Ron understands digs and his sessions are designed to be comfortable and relaxed for both you and your dog. Each photo session is about 45 minutes long and can accommodate up to dogs from the same household for no additional fee. The session is broken down into three parts: a brief welcome, the shoot, and a few minutes to wrap up at the end. We will have toys and treats. If there is a special toy or treat that you know will work best for your dog, you are welcome to bring it to the shoot.
- PICK YOUR FAVORITES: After your photo session, you will receive a link to a personal online gallery with the very best shots from your session. The turnaround time is 1 to 1½ weeks for Ron to edit and upload the pictures to your gallery page and we are happy to consult with you about photo selection and ordering the products if needed.
- ORDER YOUR ART: Our products include unframed prints, acrylic prints, and a hardcover oversized photo book featuring your favorite images.
