How to Prepare
- Please call your local studio to schedule an appointment. Online scheduling is not available for pet sessions. Click here to find a studio near you.
- To speed up your in-studio experience, please review and fill out our Pet Waiver Form prior to your pet photography session.
- If you would like a certain prop or blanket for your session, please bring it with you. For sanitary reasons, our studios will not use provided props for pet photography sessions.
- Make sure your pet has gone to the bathroom prior to your studio session. This will help prevent accidents and keep anxious pets at ease.
- Bring a supply of treats or your pet's favorite toy. Animal cooperation is critical for great photos.
