The holidays are just around the corner, before you know it you’ll be dashing around trying to get a million things done — last minute shopping trips, heading to holiday parties, battling crowds on your Target runs — the last thing you have time to do is think of a creative holiday gift for your parents, grandparents, or partner.


Give a gift that really wows this holiday season — custom, archival quality art. You might even make mom happy-cry a bit! Festive Fido sessions are short and sweet, and the resulting images are perfect for holiday gifts and for holiday cards too. These sessions are available on a very limited basis.  The session fee starts at $49 and you have 3 packages to choose from (details below). Snag a spot before it's too late. 


  • A family photo with your dog, or if you prefer to just feature your pup, that’s fine too.

  • Prints come wrapped and ready to give, so you can check both the gift and the gift wrapping off your to-do list.  

  • Star treatment for you and your dog during a 15 minute session* on location in Marin.

  • 5 professionally edited proofs to review in an online gallery.

  • 3 dynamite packages to choose from that are available only for Festive Fido Sessions at an amazing value.


Saturday, November 3 — 5 spots available

You'll be given a start time between 3:00-5:30 pm.

Sessions are held in Southern Novato. Exact location and directions will be provided after booking. 


I have a large family, can you take our portrait with our dog in it?

Festive Fido sessions are best suited for 3 people or less. Dogs are the focus of these sessions!

My dog won’t sit still for photos, can you still photograph him/her?

Not to worry! Most dogs I photograph are not well trained and do not simply sit and stay put for photos. I've been working with dogs professionally for over 20 years and know just how to manage your dog using positive reinforcement, plus a little professional editing where I can remove leashes to create the illusion that your dog is the picture of obedience. Trust me, I have 2 beagles and plenty of practice with dogs that don't want to listen or sit still! 

I don’t want to be in the photos, can this session just include my dog?

Absolutely! I love taking photos of dogs alone or dogs with their people, so it’s up to you. I can also take images that show just your legs/feet with your dog if you're camera shy!

I have multiple dogs, do I need to book a separate session for each?

No, just select the number of dogs that will be participating, there is a $25 added charge for each additional dog (up to 3 dogs total).
