This studio day is dedicated to all our furry friends of the K9 world. Even though I do not have a dog, I sure love them! I do have two cats and I know I love my cats as much as you LOVE your dogs. So, “Dog Day” was created. Not only are we doing this for you, but we are also doing this for the St-John’s Ambulance Therapy Dog Program. We want to give something back to them, so the $40 session fee is being donated to them. (yes that is the entire session fee).

We should tell you that this will not be your typical “Studio dog portrait day”. Nope, we are planning to create the best image of your dog showing his or her personality. Sometimes we will get it in the first few frames, sometimes we may have to take 20, whatever it takes. We will be focusing on your dog and not so much on the backgrounds, props, and colors. As you can see by our samples your attention is drawn directly to the dog, and you know what that dog is like just by looking at them. All photos will be taken on a pure white background and in black and white!

Think of Dog Portrait Day as a high-end artwork of your favorite fur baby!

FIVE Reasons Why You Should Trust Us With Your Dog’s Portrait

  1. Your dog’s portrait will be better than any snapshots you might already have.
  2. Because we know you love your dog!
  3. Your dog wishes to help out with the Timmins St-John’s Ambulance Therapy Dog Program.
  4. You will not find better prices for the best Dog Portrait.
  5. We know your dog wants this as your dog already emailed us telling us so. Don’t disappoint your dog!

My amazing professional dog trainers and I will be working an extra-long day to be able to give 20 lucky dogs this incredible opportunity. Sessions are approximately 15 minutes long. Like we said earlier, sometimes we can get those magic captures in the first 5 minutes, and sometimes it takes a bit longer (your dog might stress out, breathe heavily, tongues hanging out, which isn’t a bad thing) so we found 15 minutes is more than enough time.

Important Details for Dog Day Portrait Session

  • Please show up 5 minutes early. We wish to avoid confrontations with all of our four-legged friends.
  • Images will be captured on our high-key white background. This will put all the attention on your fur baby! Also, don’t worry, it’s vinyl, so if your fur baby has an accident, no worries at all
  • Images will be of the dog ( or dogs) alone. This is Dog Day, not Dog & Owner day (so please don’t ask). If you wish to bring more than one dog, a session fee applies to each dog. Each dog will be photographed individually and together
  • The session fee is $40 (billed when you register )
  • Please bring treats, chew toys, squeaker toys, or any other “vice” you use to bring your K9 to smile!
  • Want to dress up your dog? Go for it!
  • If it is wet outside, I will have towels for you to dry off your pet’s feet, or even better, carry them in!
  • You know when your dog has to go and if he or she happens to go in the studio……….. so be it. Dogs do that. Don’t cry, we will have cleaning supplies on hand
  • Session times are not guaranteed until paid. Once paid, refunds are not possible, however, you may transfer your session to someone else, just let us know!
  • Additional Prints and products are available for sale during your viewing appointment after you have selected your package.


These heavily discounted prices are only available during your viewing appointment. All prices are exclusive of applicable taxes. And don’t worry, you don’t have to choose your package until the viewing session when you see the best portraits ever of your Dog!

A social media sized digital file is included for free of every image you purchase!
