heidi grace Pet Portraiture
Okay, I admit it. I’m one of those people who stops you as you are walking your dog so I can say hello – to your dog! I love animals, all animals in fact. ( .. well maybe not mosquitoes… but you get the idea)
Photographing animals is not without it’s challenges; it requires patience, love, quick reflexes and an understanding of animal behaviour. (It’s not unlike photographing toddlers actually… haha!).
I shoot on location for pets big and small so that means I travel in and around Calgary for my sessions. Whether you’d like the hip urban feel of downtown, the natural lush surroundings of a green space or the sentimental environment around your home – I’m happy to oblige!
Your pets safety is my first concern – therefore keeping your dog on leash for the session is the norm. You may notice that the images on my website don’t indicate leashes were used but it’s simply part of my post-processing workflow.
For smaller pets I offer a custom comfortable studio experience. Your pet will experience the ‘supermodel-for-a-day’ treatment. I’ll create precious images of your BFF while they enjoy a relaxed cozy environment (and a few treats!)
P. S. I enjoy giving back to the community by volunteering for animal related charities. I photograph adoptable animals and events for rescue organizations. Don’t hesitate to call me if your organization needs a professional pet photographer!
