The Unique Studio Pet Session Experience

Your little pet will be transformed into a work of Art by the most experienced, trusted pet photographer in LA. Kelly Richardson will capture the adorable, loving, faithful, little personality that is always happy to greet you and your family. She will WOW you with beautiful, sentimental, classy contemporary images of your pet with her unique, charming stylistic pet photography. Beautiful portraits take time, planning and experience. To ensure the beauty of the final artwork that you take away, our photographer Kelly Richardson will be with you every step of the way.

Planning Consultation

We begin with a conversation about your pet and their cute, quirky, little personality.  We will discuss the style of the session (colors and props) – Whats Your Pet’s Personality…. We will discuss and consider where you plan to display and hang your artwork, and what additional creative products you may be interested in purchasing.  The planning consult will take place at the Manhattan Beach Studio or via telephone. It is important that we understand the personality of your pet, what is the most important capture for you,  as well as where your wall art will be showcased in your home. Photographer Kelly Richardson will take this information and plan the photography session around your individual requirements. We will schedule a date and session time. Sessions are by appointment only, and a deposit is required at time of booking.

Studio Pet Session Day

Two hours are allocated for each Studio Pet Photo session. We strive to create an environment that your pet will feel comfortable in, and we always work at your pet’s pace. We typically spend the first 15-30 minutes of this time working with the pet without a camera, building trust, and getting to know your pet’s specific temperament, behaviors and learned commands. This allows plenty of time for your pet to become familiar with Kelly the photographer, the camera, and the studio. We encourage our clients to bring their own treats and toys for the pet to play with during the session, however we always offer healthy pet treats and have toys on hand. Please make sure your pet is well groomed, nails trimmed, clean eyes.

The Design and Ordering Consultation

Within two weeks after your studio pet session you are invited back to the Manhattan Beach Studio to view your photos in our consultation lounge. We select and prepare 30-40 images from your studio session. We will work with you to design and create your perfect collection of favorite images, Wall Art Collection displays, and/or Custom Photo Creations.  We then prepare, edit, review, and quality check your Wall Art Order and forward it to our professional print lab suppliers for printing and framing.
