Cooler weather has finally arrived, and with it the prospect of glorious leaves and autumnal activities. It’s a great season to snuggle under a blanket with the ones you love and savor a mug of hot tea or cocoa. Happily, it’s also the season to celebrate the furry member of your family with a special portrait event just for them.
SAT 11TH & SUN 12th NOVEMBER 2017
10AM-4PM | Smyrna, GA
Join me on November 11th-12th for an all-new studio experience – a 20-minute festive photo session in our NW Atlanta studio against a twinkling cascade of fairy lights.
After we capture some beautiful portraits of your furry family member we’ll sit down together for a brief Ordering Session so you can see proofs immediately and go ahead and select portraits for holiday cards and gifts.
Then, after all the excitement, take home an exclusive goodie bag with treats for you pup.
There is a limited number of these special sessions…..book now to reserve your spot!
With the holiday season in mind, I’ve put together three special collections, tailored to include some fantastic savings and exclusive products that are only available with Limited Edition studio sessions. Immediately after your dog’s photo shoot we’ll sit down together, enjoy a hot cocoa or tea, take a look at some gorgeous samples, and select the images you want to purchase.
Spots are limited. Reserve you time and date as soon as possible to guarantee your portrait session. You may reserve your spot with a $100 Retainer that is applied to the Collection you choose at your shoot.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does my dog have to be well-trained?
These special sessions take place in a modestly sized studio environment, so a strong sit and stay is highly recommended. Having at least a modicum of control with your pet will allow for a wider variety of poses, the best possible portraits, and less stress for the handler. It’s a great investment of your time to brush up on commands ahead of your session. But don’t worry if your dog doesn’t have the perfect stay – we can work with them on lead and edit it out later.
If your dog gets very excited in new environments (or is a bit of a bull in a china shop!) then please make sure you exercise them before your session to burn off any excess energy. Also, even house-trained dogs can become overly excited in a new environment and tinkle. Please arrive BEFORE your session time and take a brief stroll around the grounds to allow your pet to potty BEFORE knocking on the door.
What is included?
All Furry & Festive sessions include the following:
- A 20-minute photo session for your dog(s), taking place at our studio in Smyrna, GA on a special set with a lovely muslin backdrop and fairy lights
- A 20-minute Ordering Session with a complimentary cup of tea or hot chocolate immediately after your shoot. Your retainer of $100 is applied to the Collection of your choice. The number of products and digital images you receive will be determined by your Order.
How does it work?
We want to keep the emphasis on the JOY of the season, so these sessions are meant to be simple and fun!
Booking: Go to the event page, choose your time, pay your Retainer, and your appointment is secured. You’ll receive a Confirmation email from us with your day and time, plus address and driving directions and basic instructions.
Preparation: Mark it on your calendar! Get your dog groomed or bathed as necessary. Gauge your drive time and plan accordingly. On the day of the shoot, walk your pet and let them get their energy out. Arrive prior to your session so you can park and let your pet potty one more time before entering the studio.
Photo Shoot: We’ll take a number of shots in various poses on the twinkle light set. You may bring accessories or outfits of your pet if you wish.
Ordering Session: Right after the shoot we will walk into the Client Room to view the (unedited) images immediately. You can see and handle our artwork samples, ask me any questions you may have, and select the images for the products your Collection. Once you have made your selections the Retainer will be applied to your Order and the balance will be due. Since this IS the time your Order will be placed please have all decision makers present…..these specially priced Collections are only available at the Furry & Festive event!
Order Receipt: After the Order is placed purchased images will be retouched. Websized and Hi Res images will be emailed to you, and products such as prints and artwork may be picked up here at the studio or delivered to you.
Can I bring more than one dog to the session?
Yes. You may have 2 dogs photographed together (based on their cooperation), as well as individually. Please keep in mind the minimum for 2 dogs is Collection 2 at $250. For 3 pets or more please schedule one of our regular sessions so we can allocate the time and attention necessary to create beautiful work and manage multiple animals. 🙂
Can I order additional items beyond the Special Collections?
Absolutely! You’ll have the opportunity to upgrade at your Order Session (once you’ve seen some product samples). Collections One and Two include unique discounts on additional a la carte items you can purchase for your home or gift giving.
Do I have to Book and Pay in advance?
Yes. These Special Edition sessions only happen once a year, so for things to run smoothly you’ll need to book a slot in advance. Don’t worry, it’s super simple to do – just choose your time, complete the online booking form and pay your Retainer, and you’re all set! Once that is received you’ll receive an email Confirmation with your time and our studio address.
Please note: this event is tightly scheduled, so if you arrive late, you will only have the remaining time in your session slot to create your portraits. Discounts or refunds will not be given for missed or partial sessions if you are late, and the collections shown above will not be available after the event.
