If you love your dog or cat the most you owe it to yourself to invest in a portrait session. You will not regret having beautiful work of art featuring your pet hanging in your home for years to come! Always hanging on the wall behind my workspace are my 3 16x20's of my past and present dogs and I will cherish them forever.
Whether this is a new puppy or kitten or a time tested faithful companion, capturing their personality is a personal passion of mine. No one is expected to "Sit and Stay," instead I want them to show me their personality and joy & I'll take care of the rest. From the tiniest toy dogs to the giants, I am thrilled to work with all shapes sizes, and personalities!
Let's chat about your session goals and custom create the perfect session for you and your pet. Maybe it's a session in your own home where your pet is most comfortable. Perhaps we'll explore a local San Diego park together and create fun lasting memories there. Maybe you are looking for an elegant formal portrait of your sweet pupper, in which case I would recommend a studio session. I will accommodate your goals and exceed your expectations.
Your pet portrait session will be custom-designed with your personal goals in mind. Prior to your session, we'll have a consultation to discuss a few topics, including:
The Gretchen Otero Photography process is different from what you might be used to, but it's so much better for you and very simple! Best of all you'll have me every step of the way eliminating the guesswork and answering your questions. I'll also ask questions of you that will help me tailor your experience to your exact needs.
We'll start with a phone call so you can tell me all about your goals. Tell me why you want to have these portraits made and what you envision for your home. We'll then decide on what session (studio, location, or home) will meet your goals and schedule your dedicated time.
Your portrait session will be a lot of fun and largely dictated by your pet. No one is expected to sit and stay. The focus is making sure your dog or cat is enjoying themself and behaving naturally and comfortably.
After your portrait session, we'll schedule your Portrait Reveal Experience. This is when you will choose your favorite images from your session. I'll tailor your offerings to match your decor, goals, and your images. I will digitally show you your favorite images on your own walls so you can see exactly how your chosen portraits will look in your home. We'll go over options and finalize your order all within this experience! And voila! You're all done and I'll be delivering your custom artwork to your doorstep in just a few weeks!
