I n v e s t m e n t
How do I get started? Now that’s a great question! The best way to get started is to contact me by email or phone. Some things you can do is look around my website and see which images appeal the most to you. Is it the action shots? Posed in nature? Dramatic sunsets? We will go over all these details at the pre-session consultation too!
So what exactly do you get when you book a session with Amyranth Pet Photography?
Well to start, you don’t just get a bunch of images on a USB drive and that’s it. I provide a luxury experience, where you can sit back and let me do all the work, and you end up with gorgeous museum quality artwork! I do sell digital files, but I encourage you to consider physical products over digital files. My products come from professional photo labs that normal consumers don’t have access to, and I have all the experience to get everything printed correctly and beautifully.
I’m all about great customer service, happy animals and gorgeous artwork. I want your experience to be effortless – the hardest thing you’ll have to do is picking which images you like the most!
Investing in Pet Portraits
is a very smart thing to do. Who wouldn’t want gorgeous artwork of their own pet on their walls? Don’t wait until it’s too late. I have had so many owners tell me they regret not getting pictures of their pet done earlier. (or at all!) Your artwork will last a lifetime, to help you remember them long after they are gone.
We Understand Animals
Having owned and been around many animals my whole life, I know and understand many different types of animals. Rest assured that I can manage and handle your pets with love, care and expertise.
Museum Quality Artwork
All products sold are guaranteed to be museum quality, top of the line artwork that will last a lifetime (and beyond!)
Fully Tailored to YOU.
No cookie cutter templates here. I meet you and your pets and we go over all the details, quirks, needs and wants together before money or cameras are ever even an issue.
Details about our Sessions
When you hire Amyranth Pet Photography for your photography needs you can be assured that your animals are in capable hands with someone who both knows animals intimately AND knows her way around a camera. All of the images on this website are made by me, and me alone. We stand behind our product and we have a 100% money back guarantee if you’re unhappy with your images.
Our session fee is $250 which gives you three consultations (pre, order and delivery), the photo shoot, primary editing on 30 proofs, a lot of fun for your pet at the photo shoot and great customer service!
You can schedule a pre-session consultation where I will come out to meet you and your fur kids. I can answer all your questions, I will tell you a little bit more about our session, you can view our investment guide and you can see and touch some of our sample artwork. I would love to interact with your pets, to see what their personalities are like, how they respond to me and different cues, so I can be fully prepared to tailor the session to their personalities. If you then decide to book a session with Amyranth Pet Photography, we can go over our contract and model release, pick a location for your session, go over all your wishes, wants and needs for the session and schedule a date and time. I will give you loads of information about what to and not to do during the session and what to or not to wear to make you look your best. Half of the session fee is required as a non-refundable deposit to secure your session date and time.
The Photo Shoot
The day of the photo shoot is so much fun! Please make sure your pets are ready for their pictures by having them groomed (preferably a week before the session) and washed before or on the session date. (Please do keep in mind that because of the nature of my sessions, which are fun and generally in parks, they will get dirty again during their session!) If there is one thing I need you to know about the session, it’s that I have the patience of a saint. It is totally okay that your dog is not listening to you during the session, and I have a hundred tricks up my sleeve to still get the images we need in case that happens! The photo shoot will generally last between one and a half and two hours. Your pet will be pooped at the end of the session! Generally sessions will be booked about 2.5 to 3 hours before sunset, as this will give us optimal lighting conditions. I will give you all the information to help you and your pets look your best during the session, as well as hints tips and tricks to help the session go as smooth as possible. It will take me approximately two weeks to go through all the images and pick the best ones, give them basic editing and sending those images to the lab to be printed as proofs. We will schedule the Ordering Consultation roughly two weeks after the photoshoot.
We offer a limited amount of sessions a month
.. due to the fact that each client gets four different visits from me, and I put in an average of 20 hours of work per client. Don’t wait to book, as certain months are more popular than others and fill up quickly! We book up to six months in advance.
Just as a heads up..
Most clients spend between $600 and $3000+.
This is where you will finally get to see your images! I will show you a slideshow first, then we will look at all the printed proofs together, and pick out your favorites. I will help and guide you the best I can, of course! You are free to review our price list again, as well as our samples. After you’ve made your selections and placed your order, I will edit all the purchased images, color correct them and send them off to their appropriate pro-lab. This whole process takes about two to three weeks, depending on how busy the pro-lab and the shipping services are. I inspect the whole order for any quality issues before scheduling the Product Delivery with you.
This really is one of the most awesome parts of my job, giving the finished products to my clients! I will come to your home (or agreed-upon location) to personally deliver all your artwork. We will go over everything, I will make sure you’re 100% happy with everything and if you wish I will even provide assistance hanging the wall art. And that’s it! Your images will be kept for a minimum of three years, if you wanted to add to your order or re-order something. All my photography is professionally backed up in the cloud, as well as on at least 4 different hard drives. If you have given your permission, I will post a blog post containing some of your images and photographs of your artwork to my blog, to showcase your beautiful artwork to the world!

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
Kelly was absolutely awesome. I knew I wanted to get professional photos because my pup had a heart condition and time was uncertain. Kelly was professional, kind, a pleasure to work with. She was able to squeeze me in quickly when Athena took a turn for the worse, and she was super patient with Daisy, my rescue pooch who is very shy. The final pics came out beautifully, and I treasure them.
Kelly is an AMAZING pet photographer! She is so good with pets, and her photos are incredible. She is a pleasure to work with, and she is so accommodating! Anything you ask for she is able to do. I have a very energetic Dalmatian, and the photos she got of him are fantastic. She made sure the session was fun for my dog, and it shows in all of the photos. The finished products are absolutely gorgeous. I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend Kelly and Amyranth Pet Photography to all of my friends!Elizabeth B.
The lovely photos Kelly has taken of Lucky Dog Rescue’s dogs up for adoption has helped to find them wonderful homes. Thank you Kelly!Pat A.
