It’s that time of year when so many are thinking about getting photos taken for their holiday cards and gift giving. It’s a great time of year to take photos outdoors in Texas too with cooler temperatures and leaves changing colors.

So this year we’re again offering one pet photography session for those looking for a mini type session. Granted we don’t do anything in a “mini” sort of way around here, but this session is going to be a short-and-sweet version for our clients looking for a simpler approach.

Sun. Nov. 4, 2018

*if you’re interested but unavailable for this date or Nov.4th has passed, please let us know– we may add a second date later in November or early December*

This year I’ll again have options for multiple pets and people to join in! Learn more on the booking page by clicking the button below.

Book Your Holiday Limited Edition Session

One-of-a-Kind Pet Photography Experience

 20 minute individual photo session outdoors with festive holiday scenery. You’ll have approximately 10-15 images (sometimes more!) to view and choose from at the viewing and ordering reveal appointment, scheduled for a future date after your session at our McKinney office location. 

Options for pets only or pets + people

Do you want a family photo or just the pets? It’s all up to you and up to 4 “faces” are included in the session fee. Have a bigger family? No worries– we can add more people or pets and a longer session time for an additional fee. 

Complimentary basic leash removal

 You can keep your dog safe and close to you for all those cute interaction poses (or shining in the spotlight on his own) and afterward I’ll remove the leash using my handy Photoshop skills, making a picture-perfect image.

A 25 Custom Christmas Cards + Complimentary Social Sharing File Included

 While additional prints and products will certainly be available for you to order after your session at the viewing and ordering reveal appointment, the Limited Edition Holiday Session includes 25 custom Christmas cards!  

Special Packages with holiday cards, prints and products available

 Though it’s completely optional to order more, most people want to add a few more keepsakes from their session. My full product offering is available along with some extra special holiday packages, including the most popular holiday card and gift options.

New This Year

More options and even more personalized service

 After five years of holiday photos the poses, props, and options have continued to expand. Each session is interactive and allows both you and your pet to help choose which activities and images we capture.  

We are so confident we will capture photos you’ll love, that we offer a 100% money back guarantee. 

As always, you will have truly special images of your pets and memories from this holiday season!
