The photo session is broken down into three parts: a brief welcome, the shoot, and a few minutes to wrap up at the end. We will be prepared with toys and treats, but 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.

***A session can accommodate up to two dogs from the same household at no additional charge.

THE RESULTS: After your photo shoot, you will receive a link to a private online gallery with 20-30 digital proofs featuring the best images from your session. These images will be used to order prints/products. If needed, we are happy to consult with you about photo selection and ordering. Our products include unframed prints, acrylic prints, and a hardcover oversized photo book featuring your favorite images. There is no pressure to purchase above the $150 photo credit you are given, but most clients spend an additional $250 - $1,000 on prints/products.

INVESTMENT - PRICING/PRINTS: Ron's portrait session pricing is $1000, which includes a $250 deposit required at the time of sign-up and a credit of $150 (equivalent to two 8x10 unframed prints) that you may use towards purchasing prints/products. The balance of the payment will be sent via e-mail invoice and is due on the day of the shoot.

BOOK YOUR SESSION: Let Ron Schmidt's award-winning photography capture the essence of your dog in stunning art portraits that will be cherished for years to come.
