Where is your studio?    We are located at address is 1821 W. Hubbard St., just 15 minutes from downtown Chicago, IL in West Town.

Do you travel for shoots?  Absolutely! I love to travel, and I’ll trek to just about anywhere to tell your story.

So…how much does it cost to work with you?  My commission fee for pets and families is $450 and you only purchase the photographs you love!

Can I just get the digitals?   Our goal is to get you something even more amazing than a digital file.  We offer custom artwork from Italy and inspect every print before it arrives in your hands.  The social media file is included with every photograph you purchase!

I want to celebrate my family with photography!  What’s next?  We have a Discovery Call with all decision makers before you arrive to the studio for your shoot and we learn more about you!  I can capture wonderful moments with you and your loved ones once we learn more about you!

How long is the photo session?  Pet photo sessions are typically one hour.  If your dog cannot Sit and Stay, then longer!  After your photo session, we will schedule a time for your Design Consultation.  You will receive a cinematic reveal of your photographs and will have time with our design consultant to create beautiful artwork and place your order!

What is required to book my date?  A signed contract, a deposit and a hug!  I grew up in the South, and I’m a hugger!
