Adventure Day Session

We can go for a walk in the park or a hike in the hills. An Adventure Day portrait session with Big White Dog Photography is an experience that’s custom-designed for you and your dog.

NOTE: I move mountains to change my schedule if your portrait session becomes urgent due to your dog’s health.

Your Journey Book

This is more than a photo album. It’s the story of your journey with your dog, a book crafted by award-winning storyteller, Angela Schneider, the Chief Memory Maker at Big White Dog Photography.

All the fun happens! We create incredible images of our adventure around Spokane or North Idaho.

Step 4

We create art

We pick your favorite images from your adventure and turn them into art pieces for your home.

The story starts here:

Dogs doing dog things in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene

You and your dog are badasses. 

Your adventures are epic.

The artwork in your home should be, too.

Yeah, you could go to the vintage market and pick up a piece of barnwood stenciled with “Live. Love. Bark.”

Then your bestie comes over for a glass of wine and says, “OMG, I have that, too.”

No. Just no. Oh my dog, no.

Let’s get you one-of-a-kind artwork of you and your dog on adventures together … and make your bestie’s jaw drop the next time she comes over.
