 In each session, I strive to capture your pup's unique personality through both posed images (using lots of treats and toys) and unposed images that will always remind you exactly of your pup's quirkiness! All sessions occur outside where your pup can run around and explore. I'm a natural light photographer so we will work together to schedule a session when the natural lighting is at its best. Much like my wedding photography style, I aim to capture timeless images of your pup that are bright and joyful!

MY philosophy

The experience

Dog photography is my passion and nothing excites me more than being able to capture a beautiful portrait of your furry best friend! I have endless amounts of patience, especially when it comes to working with dogs. I completely understand that dogs do not always do exactly what you want them to, so you can often find me laying on the ground, making crazy noises, and basically doing whatever it takes to capture the best portrait of your pup! I know how important your pup is to you and it's my goal to capture their unique personality in the best way I can!

The Why

The experience

Where will the session take place?

FAQ's

I'm a natural light photographer, so all sessions occur outdoors! Boston has so many amazing options for beautiful backdrops! If you need help finding a location, I have plenty of suggestions to offer. Or if you already have a spot in mind, I'm always willing to explore new places! An additional travel fee is required for any location that is not within 15 miles of Boston. 

What if my dog is REally energetic? Shy? Nervous?

FAQ's

No worries! I have worked with a wide range of dogs from really well-trained dogs to puppies to rescues! In fact, the majority of dogs I work with are not well trained. During our pre-session phone call, we will discuss any concerns you might have about your session. I promise I have a ton of patience and will not get frustrated during your session. The best way to let your dog's spirit shine through is for you to stay relaxed! Plus, I always bring an extra supply of treats if we need them!

Can you photoshop out leashes?

FAQ's

Your dog's safety is always first and foremost, especially if our session is in the busy streets on Boston! Your dog can absolutely remain on leash throughout the entire session and I will be happy to remove the leash from your final images as a complimentary service. However, I do not photoshop collars or harnesses out of photos. 

Is there an additional charge for more than one dog?

FAQ's

All sessions allow for up to two dogs, but there is a fee of $50 for every additional dog after two. 

What Type of Equipment do you use?

I'm a natural light photographer so all dog sessions take place outside about an hour before sunset when the lighting is the prettiest! All images are captured on a Canon 5D Mark III with Canon lenses. The 85mm has been my favorite lens lately and I always shoot really wide open (for all you photographers out there)!

FAQ's

What happens after our session?

FAQ's

After your session, I fully edit all images, post sneak peeks on Facebook and Instagram, create a personalized blog post, and deliver a private online gallery where you can download, share, and order prints. You will receive a print release and all the rights to your digital images once your gallery is shared. I work very hard to deliver all final galleries within three weeks of your session date!

What Print Products are Available?

FAQ's

After booking your session, I will send you a print product guide to review before your session. This way, once your images are delivered, you'll already know exactly which print products you'd like to order. On average, my clients spend $300 in print products. I only offer top of the line products that I love from a professional printing lab that I trust with all my work. Print products are not included in the price of a session and can be added on to your package al a carte.

Can I purchase a gift certificate?

FAQ's

Absolutely! Dog sessions make a great gift any time of year! Gift certificates are available upon request, but are only available in the full amount of the session.

Lauren was the absolute best pet photographer we could have asked for! We got some amazing shots and thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. She had great ideas for where to take the pictures, was quick in order to get the snap before the dogs moved, and was overall so wonderful to work with. We recommend Lauren for pet and people pictures alike and will definitely be using her in the future for all our photography needs!

Our experience with Lauren was fantastic! Anyone who knows French Bulldogs will agree that they can be rowdy and, overall, a handful. But, Lauren was very patient with our two crazy Frenchies and the pictures came out beautifully. She wasn't afraid to get down on the ground, to their level, to get the right shot.

Lauren was better than we could have ever asked for! Not only is she a wonderfully talented photographer but she is a sweet, kind, and patient woman. She even lied down in the dirt to photograph our uncooperative dog. She captured the cutest pictures of our dog and we are getting tons of compliments! She is truly the best and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone!

When we held the actual session, she was so friendly and fun yet professional and it was great to see her at work. The dogs loved her and so did we! She got incredible shots and made great suggestions on how to get the best ones. Her follow up was also incredible, sharing a sneak peak with me the very next day and then delivering the photo gallery a week earlier than expected. We would recommend Lauren to anyone, and hope to use her again in the future!
