Everyone you know who has a pet considers each four legged friend a full fledged family member, with all appropriate rights including voting and ownership of square footage. So, when you consider portraits, don’t leave your favorite furry ones out of the picture – literally.
STP Images is located in the Musuem District, an area alive with pet owners and pet related businesses. You can’t swing a camera cable without hitting a groomer, a vet, a doggie day care or a cat specific business. That makes shooting pets a natural part of what we do every day in our studio. We photograph your pets in our studio or in your home or anywhere in between. Between great studio shots with controlled lighting to casual outdoor, natural-light portraits, we cover it all for you. We want you to join in the fun as well. The dynamic between you and your pet and that connection you have is exactly what we want to capture.
We have a basic session that includes two 10″ prints and is a great starting point if you’re not sure about what you want with your final prints. Add-ons are easy and pricing is available for prints and products. For some of our clients, this is just as easy as walking the dog. For others, it is a bit daunting at the thought of studio portraits with their pets. We make it easy on both the owner and the pets. Our animal friendly studio has a control access gate at the top of the stairs to keep eveyone safely in the studio. We have doggie treats (including veggie treats) and fresh water and a few toys to help with posing. We also let the animals roam freely about the studio and gallery to adjust to the shoot. This helps them adjust a bit better for studio work.
Don’t worry if you think your pet might be a bit too rambunctious to photograph. We’ve had many sessions where pet owners would apologize for the frenzy of their pets, fully believing that we weren’t able to catch a thing. Even if your pet orbits you at high speed on the set in the studio, you’ll be amazed at what we can capture.
We also specificially treat your pet(s) as royalty at the shoot. It is about the animals first, so we work on THEIR terms! We won’t force poses or frustrate your loved ones in any way. Even with shy or really nervous pets, we’re able to capture wonderful images of your pets that truly reflect their personality and exactly what you love about them.
Call us at the studio and let’s talk about what you’d like to do for your pets and we’ll work with you to set up the perfect shoot. Your pet is worth it and you know it!
