Your Own Home (within a 30 mile radius of Seattle)

For cats and fearful or anxious dogs that do not do well in new situations, it is recommended that the photo shoot take place in your own house or backyard.  If your pets are nervous during the photo shoot, this will translate to the images.  In order to get the best images, pets need to feel happy,safe, and relaxed.  Your house should be tidy and well lit with abundant natural light for the best photos.

Perfect for cats and fearful dogs.
