the hearth and home session

Where is your dog most at home? On the couch? Catching a ball in your yard? Splashing in the sea? Let’s head there for the ultimate luxury session.

This session brings the best of all worlds by creating more than one kind of image. Get the spontaneity and joy of candid moments around your house and the enthusiastic exploration of your favorite nearby park or trail. We’ll start in your home or yard, then move to your dog’s favorite nearby spot – turning you both loose to play so I can turn that everyday love into art.

You also have the option to have me bring a small studio setup for crisp, magazine-worthy shots of your favorite fur-friend. Get in touch with me and we will discuss the right combination of images for you.

Helén was so wonderful to work with and took the time to get to know my Yogi, Lucky and two grand pets. Rather than using cookie cutter poses, she captured their real personalities. The beautiful photos she created will be with me forever, which means so will my fur babies.
