Session Terms

A standard Leash on Life Photography Session takes approximately 30 minutes.

Additional prints can be ordered for an additional fee, as well as low resolution digital files. There are usually 10-20 proofs from each session, posted in an on-line gallery for preview.

Session previews should be available within approximately two weeks of each session date. The online proof gallery will be available for no less than 3 months.

Things to think about before you come in for your pet's sitting:

  • Your pet will be excited to be in the store. Let them be excited and get a feel for the place, do not expect their best behavior when they walk in the door.
  • If your pet is young and full of energy, take him/her for a walk or to the park before coming in for your photos.
  • Please let us know in advance if your dog is frightened of thunder and lightening.
  • This is likely something your pet has not done before, be patient with them. We have found that in a short period of time they will settle in.
  • We have professional photography and lighting equipment. Please let our staff work with your pet in the studio area, we will ask you if we need you to help pose or settle them down.
  • We are a pet photography service. You are welcome to be in the picture with your pet, but remember our focus is on your pet.
  • If there is a favorite toy, please bring that along.
