Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book a session??

Let’s talk! Get in touch with me, Carina, through EMAIL, phone (571.279.0412), carrier pigeon, or Owl Post! I’m happy to provide a completely free, no-obligation phone consultation. Or maybe you’d prefer to talk dogs, cats, or Lord of the Rings over coffee? We can do that too! (I have a thing for Panera’s Broccoli Cheese soup.)

Can people be in the photos too?
Yes! I love watching people interact with their pets and those heartwarming moments can make the most beautiful images. Remember though, I am a pet photographer and the majority of your session will be focused on getting the perfect images of your pet. So yes, people are absolutely welcome for a few shots but if you prefer a family-based session, let me know and I’ll be glad to help find what you need!
7AM?! Are you crazy??
Well, a little. But that’s not why I prefer to hold sessions just after sunrise. The reason is easy though – the light. It’s *all* about the light. When the sun is low, light is even and gorgeous. As the sun rises, shadows get longer and light becomes harsh. It is possible to expose images properly of course, *but* it does make the foreground, background, and subject lighting way more uneven. Let’s talk if the time doesn’t agree with you!
Do you sell digital photos?
Yes, digital packages are available!
My dog will never sit still for pictures.
While not exactly a question, this is the most frequent comment I hear and my response is always, “Excellent!” If you have an energetic dog, I definitely do not want to change that about them and I want that energy to shine through in their photos. I do lots of running around and rolling around so that they feel as natural and happy as possible. The investment I’ve made in my equipment, lenses, and learning to use them properly allows me to capture the action “mid-zoomie”!
What are my location choices?
I usually answer this question with a question – does your pet have a favorite place to play? Sessions can take place in a virtually limitless amount of places! Choices range from your own backyard and town centers to the many beautiful vineyards that dot the Virginia and Maryland landscapes. (And let’s not forget the spectacular monuments of DC!)
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes! Gift Certificates are available for purchase HERE and can be used towards sessions or products. Your gift will be mailed directly to you or your recipient for any occasion.
Do you work with other businesses?
Yes! Commercial and editorial inquiries are welcome for pet-related businesses, products, and publications. I will be happy to quote hourly, half-day, or full day rates based on your specific needs. Licensing is also available for my current collection of images. I love supporting other local pet businesses as well! If you have ideas ideas for partnerships, I’d love to hear from you.
