Frequently Asked Questions

I believe in Dennis Klass’s Continuing Bonds Theory of grief, which emphasizes the importance of maintaining a lifelong connection with our loved ones and pets, even after they’ve left our physical world. It isn’t about “letting go” and “moving on,” but rather about keeping our memories close. I believe the photos I take, celebrating the life and love you shared with your dog, will bring you comfort and healing in the days, months and even years ahead.
The memories you want to have of you and your dog are too important. Your session becomes a priority and I move my schedule around to get you in. And frankly, if I have a client who doesn’t understand why you’ve become a priority, I don’t want them as a client anymore.
We’re going anyway. My gear is of the highest-quality, professional level and it can handle a little rain. So can I.
No, gosh no. This is a celebration of the adventures you’ve had with your dog over these last years. I want you to share happy memories with me. I want you to snuggle and scritch and smile with your dog because you love him that damn much. Your session, I hope, will be a brief respite from the sadness you’re feeling right now.
Holy jumpin jeepers, yes! I am here not only to create beautiful memories for you but also to support you. Our tears are evidence of the grief we feel, and our grief is a result of how much we love our dogs. Crying is completely understandable when you love your dog as much as you do. I am a twice-certified grief coach and a certified pet loss grief companion. I am trained to guide you on your grief journey.
Any time, my darling. For me, there is no “wrong” time. Professionally created memories of our adventures with our dogs, I believe, should be done at all stages of our dogs’ lives. If we have time to thoughtfully plan your session, we can do that. If, however, your session is urgent and you have less time on your side than you want, we can still make it happen.
Yes, I can repair small wounds and scars if you request that. We will chat about these needs when we have our consultation call, if there’s time. If we don’t have time for that call, we can work through your needs after we’ve done your session.

I wish they could be. I do a lot of volunteer work and fundraising for animal-related nonprofits throughout the Inland Northwest. Charging for my sessions allows me to keep doing those projects and helping companion animals and humans find each other and share lifelong adventures together. It also allows me the space to get you on my schedule at a moment’s notice. My regular rates apply for these sessions. Payment plans are available.

Your $250 session fee includes a $200 credit toward purchases of prints and/or packages of digital files. It is my priority to create memories that will bring you comfort in the days ahead and possibly healing in the months and years to come. For that reason, I don’t just drop a gallery of digital files on you. Rather, I sit down with you while you select your images and help you create physical products to hold and cherish while you remember your dog. Each image is then carefully and fully edited with a professional touch.
